    We really enjoyed our experience here. We celebrated a birthday and they sprinkled confetti on the table which was nice. I highly recommend the Diver Scallops - very delicious and I had it with the mashed potatoes and asparagus. My husband had the pork chop which was a bit dry and his sides were mixed veggies and asparagus which were both very good. We also ordered the beef tenderloin crostini and my husband ordered a Cesar salad. Both were excellent. The restaurant was very quiet and there was a pianist who played for a bit which was nice. We enjoyed our experience and highly recommend the restaurant if you are in Galena!

    very nice venue. it would most probably have had a nice ambience if we did not have the unfortunate incidence of having a group of loud obnoxious people (the type of people it would be nice to see turned away) get there right before us. What ever happened to dressing for dinner, or dress codes for fine dining? This is one of those laces that would really be nice if it had one. you pay for the experience, and that experience is lessened by those individuals that do not/ cannot act civilized, let alone respectable.

    Great service by Logan. Food was fast. We would have liked a longer experience. Music by the piano player was relaxing. The food was good.
