Galvan's interiorKrist's Review:
Galvan's is quaint and quiet - like a smokefree family restaurant should be. In fact, I think I started weirding out the other customers when I started snapping photos, which seriously inhibited the number of photos I could take of the interior. Located in a building that formerly housed a Big Boy, the interior decoration hasn't changed much since the days of Big Boy, with the exception being blue vinyl-covered wooden booths replacing the old interior. Being that this is a family restaurant, their alcohol selection is limited to 12 oz. bottles of beer, and the selection is far from impressive. They have the requisite Budweiser and Miller products, along with those they distribute like Fosters, Newcastle, Molson, and Icehouse. They also have a small selection of Mexican beers, which are on special along with their Mexican foods on Thursday nights. And since this is Wisconsin, they also have the requisite Friday fish fry. Prices are within the livable wage of the regular blue collar man, with domestic bottles going for $1.95, premium domestics for $2.25, and imports going for $2.75. Their hours are a very Waltons-esque 5:30 am to 9 pm on Sunday through Thursday nights and 5:30 am to 10 pm on Fridays and Saturdays.

Galvan's signYou might like Galvan's if:
You're looking for a nice, quiet, smokefree family restaurant where you can still throw back a few cold ones.

You might not like Galvan's if:
You're looking to get hammered. You might look out of place just sitting in a booth drinking beer by yourself.
