Outstanding Food & Service

The food here is hard to beat for the price...excellent quality all around. I had the filet which was cooked to perfection and my wife had the Beef Wellington which she claimed was one of the best she ever experienced. Service was great and could not have asked for a better dinner.

The owner and the server went above and beyond to make our dining experience an excellent one. The meal was wonderful and the view was an added bonus!

Food was great, views were beautiful! Not getting the highest rating due to running out of my meal after I placed the order. I was informed 45 minutes later. However, all that we ate was AMAZING!

We found this place online and originally wanted to stay at the inn but unfortunately everything was booked so we opted to come for what we hoped would be a nice dinner one night while staying elsewhere in Galena. The property is truly beautiful but parking is very limited. The front desk staff is extremely friendly, however the kitchen and... More

I can't really add much that the other negative reviews haven't covered. Service took forever, I mean FOREVER. Food was okay. Okay. Just okay. I make better at home. Expected something unique, creative, delicious! based on reviews. Not the case. Skipit. Save your time and money.

A great place to go for a couples night out, this place is built to look like a European manor. This makes for a different experience when coming to eat here. The food is good, but what they do best is their specialty dinners. They have these on different occasions. The one i went to was for Christmas, and it... More

Food was Ok. Nothing special. Dining room was too quiet. You could clearly hear other conversations whether you wanted to or not. Server needed more training in providing service in a white table cloth restaurant.

The food was good I had the Beef Wellington and it was fabulous, my husband said his steak was a little over cooked. Beautiful views our only concern was the slow service. They didn't have a lot of servers so you only had one lovely lady taking care of everyone.

We went to dinner at the Goldmoor for Valentine's Day dinner. We did not stay there but the building/inn seemed very nice. The girl at the front desk was very helpful and friendly. We were seated quickly per our reservation. As for the restaurant itself, there seemed to be very few tables and you almost sat on top of the... More
