The Best Galena Restaurants for Date Nights

Galena has a lot of things going for it, including several great Galena restaurants for your date nights.  Aside from being a beautiful little town, Galena also radiates quaint old-world, small-town charm. Its laid-back character is one of its best features.

Not only is downtown Galena beautiful and charming, but it’s positively filled with wonderful things to do as well. Whether you enjoy shopping, hiking, biking, kayaking, wine tasting, hot air ballooning, or something else entirely different, there’s no doubt you’ll find something about Galena to love. In between all of those great things, you’ll need a bit to eat – and that is where Galena restaurants come in!

In downtown Galena, you’ll find a tantalizing and surprising selection of delicious Galena restaurants to choose from. Three of them, in particular, and well-suited to romantic date nights.

  • Fried Green Tomatoes has long been one of the most romantic Galena Restaurants.  It’s situated in a cozy brick-&-stone setting with a tin ceiling & bar. It’s cozy, it’s chic, and the food is absolutely delectable. They also have a great wine menu. Altogether, this adds up to an incredibly romantic ambiance, making them one of the best Galena restaurants for date nights.
  • Fritz & Frites is a longtime favorite in downtown Galena  This local gem serves up a delicious combination of French and German classics. To top it all off, they are located in a charming European-style bistro. They are one of the most popular Galena restaurants, though, which means they are busy.  We recommend planning in advance to snag a table here!
  • Though they are located just outside of downtown Galena, our Friends at Goldmoor Inn also offer an excellent and romantic dining experience at their restaurant. Their dinner and service are impeccable, and from their restaurant, you’ll enjoy stunning views of the Mississippi River and the rolling hills of Galena.
  • Another elegant dining experience that is perfect for romantic date nights in Galena is just a short drive away in the larger town of Dubuque.  There, you’ll find Brazen Open Kitchen and Bar, whose owner/chef is a Galena native. The fresh and inventive food is more than worth the drive – plus, you’ll have a chance to explore some of the many things to do in Dubuque, too!

While these two Galena restaurants are the most romantic, they aren’t the only great restaurants to enjoy while you’re in town.  There are plenty more to choose from, including Durty Gurts, Log Cabin Steakhouse, Savory Kitchen, and so many more.

Stay at the Best Bed and Breakfast in Galena

One of the best things about our Galena Bed and Breakfast, apart from the obvious luxury you’ll be staying in, is the proximity to downtown and all of the best Galena restaurants.  Main Street is steps away from our Galena Bed and Breakfast, which means you can easily come and go from here, enjoying small breaks throughout the day as needed.

The tray comes with a delightful bottle of wine that you choose from our house selections, charcuterie from our friends at Galena River Wine & Cheese, and a rotating selection of our house-made appetizers and yummy homemade cookies. The best part about this tray is you can save it to nibble on as you please!
