Food has always been a part of a visitor’s experience while on vacation, and there is no better place for one to begin their taste journey than in Galesburg.

Your food tour begins on historic Seminary Street, home to several restaurants catering to all tastes. Enjoy the famous spinach bisque at Landmark Cafe´ and Crêperie, an savory steak and cocktail at Craft or sample foods from around the world with a focus on Indian cuisine at Cornucopia Market. And if pizza tempts you, Seminary Street is home to Yelp’s number one pizza in Illinois at Baked.

Great food is not limited to Seminary Street.  Downtown Galesburg is home to a variety of restaurants that cater to everyone’s tastebuds.  

Visit Coney Island, Galesburg’s oldest restaurant, and satisfy your hunger with a Coney Island Dog and milkshake. For a little spice, head over to Cherry Street Brewing Company for “Kit’s Original Mud”, a chili cheese dip that is a local favorite.

Want more pizza? No problem. Have a slice at Jimmy’s and take in the nostalgia of 1950’s and 1960’s pop culture. Or see live music at Budde’s while enjoying a pie topped with cheesy goodness.

After your meal, finish off with a local craft beer from one of our downtown hot spots.  

Get the feel of our ties to the railroad at Iron Spike Brewing Company with a pint of “Speed Rail” Lager or head over to Reserve Artisan Ales and pour your own “Haze Ain’t A Faze, Part 3”. 

If a cocktail or bourbon is what you are looking for, then venture in to The Bar 65 and have Sam mix up some of his magic while immediately making you feel like you’ve been friends forever.

A small town with big time flavor, Galesburg will get you in the spirit!
