Galena is a pretty nice looking town to spend some time in and this restaurant reflects just that. I had a fantastic experience with the food and service. Staff is very down to earth and friendly. Their salad was perfect (can't remember the name though). I tried the white chicken chili (chef managed to find the ingredients from scratch) and... More

Nice place but food was overpriced and just average. I ordered the macaroni and cheese and it was nothing special. Noodles were rubbery and dry. Not worth the price I paid for it.

We had a bad experience here and had not returned for a couple of years. We decided to give this restaurant another try and were not disappointed. We shared a salad with apples, blueberries, walnuts, and chicken and it was very good. We also shared a reuben sandwich and it was excellent! The service was very good also, we will... More

Do not order an Old Fashioned, they don't really know what that is. I had the turkey melt and my husband had a Cuban sandwich. Both were fine, but his was definitely not a Cuban. The garlic fries were delicious, but for two sandwiches and one drink (I had water), the bill was over $50 with tip. Seems like there... More

I recommend the blue cheese soup, very tasty! Great place for a quick bite or a relaxing drink in the evening.

We love coming to Green St. Sitting in the front window, with a great view of all who pass by in Galena. Great ambiance, Great History, and Great prices. The patio is also a great place to bring joy to our hearts, and enjoy great food.. We will come back often..

I arrived on an early Friday evening - the bar was not overly busy, but it took them about 5 minutes to seat me. I waited 20 minutes for my waitress, who turned out to be the person who walked past me 5 times before she took my order! I ordered the Cuban sandwich, with potato salad - it took... More

We had dinner at The Greenstreet Tavern during Luminaria and Wedding in a Window. The town was sparkling with Candles and activity.
