Some of the best German food I have had since Milwaukee. The dinner was great, sauerkraut flavorful and spaetzel tender. Recommend the chicken schnitzel special. French house wines are terrific.

Good food and great service! You have a little bit of France and a little bit of Germany and it works!

Atmosphere: Beautiful place. Has a euro setup so you sit close to each other. You hardly notice it since the tables are appropriately positioned. Good thought went into the design of the interior. I found myself mesmerized by how clean meticulously planned the space is....More

In town for the Halloween parade and anniversary get away. First meal in town was here, and it was a great way to start the week-end. Food was good, service nice and dessert was insane. Would do it again if we return to Galena.

Don't know but give them a call. It is a small place and if they do have, I'm sure it will be minimal. They won't be open again until Tuesday evening, 815.777.2004
