My wife and I celebrated our 4 year anniversary in Galena and we had breakfast at Otto's. Great food and good bloody Mary's with a very friendly staff. We really enjoyed our time there and would go back to try other items on the menu.

Their breakfasts are awesome!! Biscuits and gravy is the best I have had at a restaurant. Cinnamon rolls are out of this world.
