The entire guest experience at our Galena Bed and Breakfast is centered around food. From our exceptional multi-course breakfasts to our curated afternoon wine and appetizer trays, we love to bring the best tastes of Galena home to our Guests. So it pretty easily follows that we also love referring our guests out to the best Galena restaurants – including spots where they can find great vegan or vegetarian dishes, as we, too, love to cater to the specific needs of our guests.
Whether you consider yourself an experienced gourmand or casual food lover, like it not, food will be a prominent fixture of every getaway – and that’s because, unlike at home, you’ll rely on local Galena restaurants (and us, of course) for your daily meals. Luckily, there really are some fantastic establishments right here in downtown Galena, most of which are a short walk from the luxuries of Jail Hill Inn. So whether you’re looking for a romantic place to celebrate an anniversary or birthday, a casual place to grab a quick bite between adventures, or something in between, there are definitely some great restaurants in Galena worth your time.
Between the food served at our Inn and those you enjoy “out,” you most certainly won’t go hungry. In between meals, we hope you’ll spend some time exploring all the best things to do in Galena. From charming shops and historic attractions to fantastic nature preserves, wineries, and more, there’s truly something here for everyone. We just hope we get to share the best of it with you sometime this year. Book your room at our exquisite Bed and Breakfast in Galena today!
Whether you’ve been coming to Jail Hill Inn every year since we opened or this is your first time visiting us in our charming town, we’re often asked for local recommendations for our favorite Galena restaurants. Though it can sometimes be hard for us to choose a favorite, as they all offer something unique and tasty on their menus, there are several Galena restaurants that guests have repeatedly told us they love to visit while in town – and a few we regularly visit as well!
As always, our list of local Galena restaurants features a broad selection to include something for everyone. Many of these establishments offer vegan or vegetarian options, and some even offer gluten-free options. Our guests are all engaging in different levels of activities while they’re here, too, so your diverse needs are reflected in the curated list of Galena restaurants below, too.
If you’re in town celebrating a special occasion, whether a birthday, milestone anniversary, babymoon, or something else, there are two restaurants in downtown Galena that are perfect for special dinners and romantic evenings with your sweetheart.
Downtown isn’t the only great place to enjoy a fantastic meal while staying at our Galena Bed and Breakfast. If you’re willing to hop in a car for dinner, there are a couple of places we highly recommend!
Our guests sometimes tell us that we feed them so well that they don’t need to eat anything else. While that may be true (for some), it’d be a real shame to miss out on at least one dinner out at these fantastic Galena restaurants! Luckily, no matter which of these restaurants you choose, you’ll find our Galena Bed and Breakfast is within easy reach. The same can be said about all the other things to do in Galena, Illinois too!
Our location is great, but that’s only one of the reasons we’re considered the best place to stay in Galena. In truth, it’s much more about the luxurious guest experience you’ll enjoy here. Ascend our exterior staircase and step inside, and you’ll be greeted with a charming, historic atmosphere that is steeped in just the right level of grandeur. It’s not too little, and it’s not too much – we’ve carefully curated every aspect of the guest experience at our Galena Bed and Breakfast to be just right.
We offer six distinct guest rooms. Though they are each decorated with unique decor, all offer an incredible 800-square feet, a kitchenette, seating areas, a spa-like bathroom, and a separate bedroom with king-sized beds. Amenities included with each stay are complimentary chocolates and chilled champagne waiting upon arrival, custom-designed plush Frette spa robes and towels, Aveda toiletries, a customizable Bluetooth sound system throughout your suite, and Samsung Smart TVs, daily breakfast, and an afternoon tray filled with appetizers, charcuterie, house-baked cookies, and your custom selection of wine or beverage.
Though many of our guests treat our Galena Bed and Breakfast as a destination, staying close throughout the day, we hope you’ll take the time to explore the historic charms of downtown Galena and any number of these delicious Galena restaurants while you’re here. Regardless, though, we just hope you see you walk through the doors at our top-rated Galena Bed and Breakfast soon. Book your stay today!
