Gallatin Street Grille is excellent
I have been visiting Vandalia for the past 5 years; I have eaten at the Gallatin Street Grille for an equal amount of time. Everything I have had is excellent; the consistency and quality of the food is excellent. The service has always been the...More ... read more

Had the chicken wrap and a cup of the potato soup, both were delicious! Only downside was that I wasn't expecting the wrap to be spicy, so it took me by surprise and took my breath away for a moment (it doesn't take much spice to do that to me). But I finished every bite! I'll be back again for it!

We have called and had curbside pick up, food was fantastic. We have been inside to dine. Again, food was fantastic. The service is awesome and the staff are always amazing.

I was very impressed with the food and service here. Vast menu including steaks, bbq ribs, (prime rib on the weekends?), seafood, Italian, burgers.  Reasonably priced cocktails and wine.  Chicken Parmesan was delicious, a little crunch with cheesy, garlicky, buttery goodness, (they present it with a white sauce).Fettuccine Alfredo de ... read more

The locals were raving about this place, had to give it a try. Found one of the best BBQ pulled pork sandwiches I've ever had! Totally unexpected given the classy decor and Sinatra playing softly in the background. Ticket was under $10 for meal and drink, perfect amount of food for lunch, not too much not too little. The space is sma ... read more

Just had an awsome experience. Had lunch with friends and the food and service was fantastic. I try to always stop in when I'm in town. Angie and Rebecca are the best. Thanks for a great time.

Easy to pass by, but don't. Very cozy inside, if alittle dated. The food though... Honestly the best ribeye sandwich I've ever had!

Overall dining experience was good, however service was a little slow especially on initially taking our drink order. Loved the salad made with fresh greens and no iceberg lettuce. Would definitely eat there again!

Gallatin Street Grille
Great little restaurant just west of the old State Capital in Vandalia. The pulled pork sandwich was one of the best I’ve had anywhere.

My mother and I were driving home and stopped in this small town. We didnt want fast food. We had asked someone where to eat. They suggested Gallatin's Grille with the green awning. It was small, quaint and very good food. It felt fancy but was casual at the same time. Flower pot homemade bread served warm with homemade honey butte ... read more

On 7/2/19, I was on way from Florida to my "roots" in central Illinois and decided to get off the interstate for the last three hours of my drive, heading up Route 51.  It was great to drive through the heartland, through the small towns all decked out for the Fourth of July, with the pots of flowers and flags flying.  I needed some ... read more

I Always endeavor to eat in a local restaurant, for both culinary and economic reasons, they need all the support they can get to compete with mass produced mediocre food.
