Description: The Sunset Grille is a refreshing fine dining experience, where the view is almost as spectacular as the food. Perched high on a bluff, and featuring a 1,400 sq ft outdoor dining deck overlooking the Upper Mississippi River Valley, the restaurant offers a little bit of everything. From signature sandwiches, mouth watering steaks, to fresh seafood.

Enjoyed the whole experience. The food was really good and the views of the Mississippi and countryside was so nice. I would go back.

What a view. From the hilarious bunny hill just outside the Lodge, across Chestnut Mountain's trails to the Mississippi River and beyond to Iowa. The floor-to-ceiling windows at Sunset are worth a visit, even if it's only for a hot beverage. We had lunch there, your basic burgers and salad. Both were tasty, but a little pricy. The server was... More

Love the view to the river and sunset. The restaurant was busy and the waiter seems stressed but he got the table taken care of afterall.

Our waitress was pleasant, the atmosphere was lovely and peaceful. I have eaten at this restaurant before and had dinner watching the sunset. Dinner is somewhat pricy. The drive from Galena is very... More

Good food, friendly staff. We had a pork tenderloin and a portabella and fried green tomato sandwiches with salads. Our waitress was very attentive and the view was amazing. The table of 4 next to us had arrived by boat, tied up at Chestnut's dock, and took the ski lift up to the restaurant. This was a nice way to... More

Great view sitting outside and watching the sunset. Food is very good-but a little pricey. It is a great place to meet for drinks with friends.
