Stopped for lunch. Decor is entertaining. Portions were definitely huge. We left quite a bit behind. Did not take since we were out shopping on a hot day. I would recommend splitting a sandwich. Mac & Cheese bites were tasty as an appetizer.

Great service, huge portions of tasty food. We had the philly and the Italian beef. Table next to us had burgers that were awesome. Very casual place. Highly recommend

Prices were reasonable especially for the amount of food you get. You should not go away hungry. My kids got a kick out of reading all the funny quotes on the wall.

Compared to several "touristy" places in Galena, this place is more about simple food for reasonable money. The Olive burger was one of the better burgers I have had in a while and the Reuben sandwich was good as well.

Was really looking forward to a good meal in Galena (which I never found) and thought well....you can't go wrong with a burger. How wrong I was. Dry and little flavor to the beef. Wouldn't go back.
