    We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and we had an amazing time. We were outside and the patio was heated and covered. We cannot recommend the filet and scallops enough. Amazing food and staff!

    very nice menu and love the options for sure. The salad and bread are worth the stop and the spicy seafood pasta is the winner every time. Good beef filet and excellent cocktails with a very casual setting. I did see someone in shorts which was too casual in my opinion. My wife and I like the easy parking out back ($10) but worth it as parking in Galena is a challenge to say the least.

    We had the caramel apple martinis which were excellent! They were recommended by our wonderful server, Adia. She was friendly and knowledgeable. She recommended the Chilean Sea Bass with a side of scallops which was to die for! I loved every bite! We will visit every single time we are in Galena!! Fantastic experience!

    Nice ambience. Sea bass was excellent. Lobster ravioli was tasty though not much actual lobster meat inside the raviolis. Wine list could use some help. Service was overworked. We booked the patio but they did not have the patio open unfortunately, even though it was neither windy nor that cold. Still, we’d go back.

    A very large restaurant that was quite busy for a Wednesday night. The food is very good, bordering on excellent. Kitchen must have been rushed, since table next to us received their entrees before they were half finished with their salads. I mentioned this to our waiter who told us not to worry, he would make sure that we weren't rushed, and he was a man for his words. The corkage fee is a very reasonable $15. Definitely worth a visit
