Brooke, our server was awesome! The starter salads and soup were fantastic (and gluten free)! The pot roast (also gluten free) was the best I have ever had! Loved the gravy! Wife had the pork chop special, which she would give a B+ (collared greens were strong which made mushrooms limp, potato salad was just OK). We have been here many times, and have never been disappointed.

Service was top notch. The best of the food was the bread but flourless chocolate was decent not sure how one can make roasted duck breast tasteless but the chef managed his beef stroganoff was impossible to finish it was merely a tasteless white sauce on overcooked short fettuccini with a few hunks of braised breef added at last minute. My God man buy a Betty crocker cookbook and follow the recipes!

Our server was awful. My wife, a celiac had heard some good things so we stopped in to eat. When my wife asked about gluten free pasta, the server seemed put off and said she would ask. She never came back with an answer. They also said they had gluten free beer (it wasn't, it was gluten removed beer which is not safe for celiacs). When we asked our server for a cider instead (I offered to drink the beer myself), she rolled her eyes and walked away. Food was decent, but not great. Te brisket sandwich is super dry and two tiny shrimp added to a salad cost $6 and they automatically add 18% gratuity...our server also got rude when we asked her to split our party of 6 into three groups of two. "That will take at least 15 minutes" she snapped. My wife's gluten free meal also made her very sick. She was definitely glutened.

All in all, not the experience I would expect for the price.

The service was excellent and the place looks nice. However, the food was average at best. We had the pot roast which was relatively flavorless and the smoked trout appetizer wasn't very good at all. Unfortunately, most of the other appetizers were fried. If they want to play the local food / farm to table concept, they should do more to celebrate the ingredients, instead of frying or covering everything in sauce.

Had high hopes to find a great place in Galena ... this is not it. Menu was small but that is a plus most times. Waitress told us everything was good after we asked about the salmon and stroganoff... which is my husbands favorite. We ordered drinks and were given bread which was delicious except the “herb butter “ which was made with dried herbs... a little harsh and odd tasting. The salmon came with summer veg... zucchini and Sumer squash... which may have been good if not sautéed in odd butter oil mix... couldn’t eat it. And also a huge pile of mashed sweet potatoes... very yucky. Salmon was described as having a tasty sauce by waitress... but it had a load of pecans with no flavor but were soggy... so disappointed! No flavor to the stroganoff either and noodles were super thick.... would not recommend... sorry

We made a reservation at one eleven main thinking we would have a semi fancy dinner even got all dressed up. After getting there they sit us downstairs at a table by the bar where its super noisy. We had to ask to be moved upstairs where it's supposed to be the fancy part of the dinning area. Turns out they have a bachelorette party up there making it even more noisy instead of having them down by the bar keeping the noise downstairs. After ordering drinks and food things just weren't the best. The drinks were to strong in the alcohol tasting not even being able to taste the drink. As for the food, they need more then one option for soup, especially for those who don't like mushrooms like myself. The food was bland in flavour and way to expensive for what you get. I was not happy with the overall of this restaurant. The only good part about it is the beauty of this place.

We had dined here for lunch on our last visit to Galena and were pleased,so we decided to go for dinner.Very surprised by being rushed through our meal.We had a 6pm reservation on a Monday,so it was not a situation where we needed to be rushed.I ordered a cocktail and my wife ordered a soda.before I had 2 sips of my drink the soup & salad arrived-all dinners come with both.Just as I was finishing my cup of soup,and before I even took 1 bite of salad our entrees arrived.Twice wait staff tried to take my salad-once before I even started eating it.I had planned on ordering wine with my entree, but still had half my cocktail.Food was very good,but being rushed through what I had expected would be a leisurely dinner with drinks was a huge disappointment.I complained to the waitress who had no response and did nothing.We will never return to this restaurant.

The food at 111 Main is very good - well-prepared and delicious. It was by far the best dinner we had on our trip through the "Driftless Region." The only negative is that we were seated next to a party of about 14 celebrating some occasion, and they were very loud. My understanding is that there was seating available upstairs, and, as we had a reservation, it would have made much more sense to put us farther away from the celebrants.

Food and service were great. Chefs salad was huge and very fresh. Pesto chicken pasta was also very good, could have had more chicken, but overall very good. Nice selection of craft beers and served in a chilled glass. Service was attentive and thorough. Will definitely return very soon. Parking can be a challenge on busy days, so be sure to arrive early to find a parking spot and not be late for your reservation. We paid ten dollars to get off street parking two blocks away.

Great location! Nice atmosphere. The menu looked promising at a glance when I made the reservation. We got right in when we arrived and were greeted pleasantly and genuinely by the hostess.

2 of us got the pot roast. I have dietary restrictions that didn't allow me to have the mashed potatoes, so I asked for substitutes. There weren't any diabetic options, except for "mixed veggies", which in my mind just means "terrible". Also, the entrée came with soup, and there was only one choice. It sounded good at first (tomato basil), but it was ruined with salmon added. The server offered to give me a "little more salad", but when it came out, it was just as much as my coworker who got the same entrée and salad.

I ate some of the potatoes which were very good as was the salad. The pot roast was very dry and pretty void of flavor, except for the gravy which was pretty good. My coworker who got the same thing had a similar assessment.

This place was "good enough" that I might go again if I was in the area, but with so many options in historic Galena, it's not likely that I will.

My wife and I were in Galena for our anniversary. We ended up eating at One Eleven based on menu. The waiter was decent and the manager stoped by our table toward the end of our meal. Food was delicious. We dined on the second floor where it was quiet with a simple yet tasteful decor. I’d come back again without hesitation.

Everything was pretty good, but I got the Hanger Steak special. I asked for the steak medium rare. It came pretty rare and cold in one spot and the meat was tough. I mentioned it to the waiter and he offered to put it back on for awhile but it was covered in a good mushroom gravy and I wasn’t sure how that was going to work out so I declined.

Meh. Food was nothing special. Stroganoff was just OK and not served hot enough. I probably would not go back again if I was back in Galena. There are better restaurants.

As a local this is a favorite restaurant. Everyone enjoyed service, ambiance and food. One thing I noticed....meat in the beef stroganoff was not up to its usual quality. Everything else about the dish was superb.

Noticed you added back the soup and salad course of main dishes. Our guest enjoyed this as much as we did.

It was just okay. My daughter and I had dinner there and it was quite pricey. I had ravioli and added chicken to it and it was $26!! My daughter had pesto pasta with chicken and it was almost $20! A bit much for a bowl of pasta. The portions were large....we couldn't eat it all. The food was okay. Nothing to write home about. For that price I expected to be able to rant and rave about the meal we had. It was a charming place and the staff were very attentive. Overall, however, pretty disappointed.

Made a reservation for our 10 year wedding anniversary based on reviews and the photos on their website. They were aware it was an anniversary dinner. When we arrived we were seated at a hightop table near the entrance. Music only played on one side of the restaurant. It’s definitely not romantic. It’s just a regular bar restaurant. The food was fine, but nothing to write home about. The service was just so-so. I wouldn’t go back.
