One Eleven Main
Service and server were A1! Food was quite good. This restaurant remains one of our favorites in Galena.
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.
This was an excellent choice for our special family dinner in Galena. Many options for everyone’s needs and excellent service. We appreciate their commitment to local food.
Food and service was outstanding. A must for lunch or dinner on our annual long weekend trip to Galena.
The food is consistently, fresh, homemade and delicious.
My husband and I went to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We had a nice meal. Our waitress could not have been more attentive. We enjoyed our meal immensely. I'd highly recommend One Eleven Main.
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.
Every Galena visit includes a stop here. Great farm to table. Could be more creative with vegetables. Good bar and our male waiter is always supurb!
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.
Fresh, farm to table, ingredients. Will definately go there on my next visit to Galena.
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.
It was fantastic. As soon as we checked in they said Happy anniversary. The waiter was fabulous. Very attentive. We both had the rib eye steak and it just melted in your mouth. We would definitely recommend this place.
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.
We had a fantastic dinner at One Eleven Main. Drinks and food were delicious. What made our time so memorable was our server, William. His recommendations were delicious and his service was outstanding. Thank you William. We will be back!
The food was delicious. Both my sister and I got the NY steak. She eats hers rare and I eat mine medium. Both were cooked to perfection!
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.
Service was great! Food was below average, and very expensive. The salmon was completely inedible and we ended up taking it home for our dogs; one of them wouldn’t even eat it!
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.
We've had great meals at One Eleven in the past, so were pretty disappointed recent meal was only so-so. Meat was tough and sides uninspired. Will give them another try on a less busy weekend.
Everything was great, or better... except the coleslaw that came with the fish & chips. The cole slaw was flavorless and soggy.
Food was decent, calamari was great, highly recommend. Nothing real special.
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.
The duck was under cooked even for medium rare and was notbthat flavorful but everything else was great. Server was attentive. Drinks were well done.
Outstanding service, creative menu, and delicious beer.
Decent menu options, nice touch to use local food sources.
The food was amazing! So fresh and flavorful. Located in a very cool building in the center of Galenas Main Street. Excellent service too.
Great food and service
My wife and I consider this restaurant to be our very favorite of all restaurants we have experienced. The locally grown indredients, the petfect wait staff are among the things we love here. Our drive frm Des Moines to Galena was well worth it! Highest possible review from us!!!
Very nice dining experience. Friendly staff, attentive but not overbearing. Cozy, inviting atmosphere. Delicious food, nice presentation. Reasonable price. Convenient Main Street location. We will defintely return next time we visit Galena.
Loved the place! We will be back
Wonderful dining experience! Our server, Tonette, was fabulous- knowledgable, friendly(without being intrusive), and very kind. As for the food, the French fries were delicious, but the portobello sandwich stole the show. As a vegetarian I have had many portobello sandwiches and this one was by far the best!
Service was good. Looking for the “ghost” but did not see it. Food was ~ okay
We enjoyed our dinner at One Eleven. The music selection was great with the perfect volume. Food and service were both very good. Would definitely recommend.
Being from Chicago, perhaps I'm a bit spoiled with excellent restaurants. This one was okay. Not bad, not good. The service was outstanding as was or server, so no complaints there. However, the food was, as I said okay. A bit under seasoned, and perhaps a bit "off the shelf." Nothing "to write home about" but acceptable nonetheless.
Loved it , you will too! Great food, staff was outstanding! Food delicious! Going back ASAP
Great place in downtown Galena. Enjoyed the food and walking the streets of Galena.
