“Amazing hospitality, food and service....and the view !!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2011

We were on a recent motorcycle trip with five couples and the wine store in downtown Galena (which is also fabulous) recommended the Goldmoor Inn for dining. We were in our
jeans and Harley gear, but upon calling for reservations we asked if this would be a problem and they were very gracious and said absolutely not "you're on vacation" Upon arrival we were greated by the owner, who didn't know we were coming, offered to put our bikes under a canopy in case of rain. Upon entering the Inn, which was beautiful, as was the scenery, we wer directed to a private dining area large enough to accomodate our group at one table. It overlooked the Mississippi, beautiful!!. The food and service was fabulous. We even received a tour of the kitchen. The choices on the menu were plenty and everyones dishes were wonderful, as well as reasonable. Would highly recommend this place. You can go casual or dressy, as there was a wedding while we were there. Its just beautiful.

“Fabulous Valentines Day Celebration”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2011

The view from the restaurant was beautiful, food and service were great. We just spent the previous weekend in downtown Chicago and the dinner we experienced at the Goldmoor was far better than anything we had in the big city. I would highly recommend the Goldmoor Inn for a wonderful dinner and an equally great place to spend an evening or weekend.

“Great Food and Friendly Service at the Goldmoor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2010

We arrived about a half hour early for our 6PM reservations. It's a smaller place and they don't start serving until 5:30 on Friday nights. We were well taken care of by the staff and the served our drinks earlier then 5:30. It was a slow night so we had our pick of seats which were off away from the main dining area so it was like we had the restaurant to ourselves. The dinner was excellent - my wife had the salmon and I had the pork chops. It was our first night out in Galena and by far and away the best meal we had.

“Gourmet dinning at a fair price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2010

Everything was special at dinner from the beautiful salad presentation to the pressed coffee and all with wonderful tastes. The apple glazed pork chop was the best I can remember, and an individual portion of beef Wellington is very unusual to find. It is an intimate dinning room in an out-of-the-way picturesque inn overlooking the Mississippi.

“Best Restaurant in Galena hands down!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2010

My wife and I eat at the Goldmoor Inn for the first time after seeing there ad in the TH. We were blown away from the very start. Our server, can't remember her name but a younger girl was wonderful and selected a great wine for us. The food was by far the best we have ever had in Galena, and we have been to quite a few. I had the Beef Wellington and my wife had the Shrimp. Every thing was wonderful, the food tasted very fresh. We will definitely be coming back again and again.
