Amazing food. Beef wellington is spectacular. The salads are extraordinary , portions are plenty. Service is friendly and the dining room is intimate and filled with windows overlooking the lush gardens and the Mississippi River. Make sure to catch the sunset while having dinner here!!

The owner spent time speaking with each of the dinner guests throughout the evening. We had a beautiful sunset view. And our dinners were delicious...desserts too!

It had been some time since my wife and I had been here. We had been fairly regular diners for a few years- then their circumstances and conditions changed and things went downhill rather dramatically. We knew there was a change in owners and chef, so we tried it again. I'm happy to say things are back to "normal" in... More

We started with the bruschetta trio appetizer. We couldn't decide which of the three flavors was the favorite, they were all so good. We then had the beef wellington with potato gratin and the blackened salmon with rice pilaf. The beef wellington and potato gratin were delicious and complimented one another perfectly. The wellington was cooked to perfection. The blackened... More

We have been going to Galena for years and had never been to this hotel/restaurant. Wonderful place and the food was delicious. Staff was very friendly and professional. Loved it and will definitely continue to visit.

Stayed at the Inn for three days and ate at their dining facility 2 of the evenings. The food and service was exceptional. The double pork chop was so flavorful and the potatoes were scrumptious. Wish we had more time to sample more items on the menu. We are for sure going back!

Based on wonderful experiences in the past, we booked dinner reservations for 7pm on Sat evening. Little did we know, the hotel and restaurant are under new ownership. While waiting to be seated, the owner peaked out and randomly ordered me to shut the front door of the hotel because someone had just walked in and left it open. Rude... More

Out of this world dining. The food was delicious!!! We savored every bite. The chef has skills that rival the top cooks around the world. Every bite was flavorful and enjoyable. Unique and original.
