  • Fritz & Frites:  This Innkeeper favorite, and the #1 ranked Galena Restaurant on Tripadvisor, is a delicious combination of French and German classics in a charming European-style bistro.
  • Little Tokyo:  Little Tokyo is Galena’s first Japanese restaurant, and is located in a beautiful, authentic Japanese environment on Main Street.  Their unique menu features fresh, seasonal fare that compliments an extensive range of high-quality sushi and sashimi. They also have an exquisite sake menu worth sampling.
