“Sunset view & Food that are fantastic”
Reviewed October 17, 2013

It's a bit of a drive out of town toward Chestnut Mt. but more then worth it. The property is awesome and the sleeping rooms over the top ($$$$) Dinning was the BEST meal of the week. Seasonal item and currently a Pork Chop like no other. Friendly staff.

“Birthday Celebration”
Reviewed October 13, 2013

On Friday, October 11, 2013: Ten close friends celebrated a dear friend's birthday at the Goldmoor in their 'Private Dining Room' --- Our evening was simply AWESOME from beginning to end. The Goldmoor's COUNTRYSIDE LOCATION and VIEWS were stunning yet warm and inviting. The INN & RESTAURANT was beautifully decorated and maintained. The DINING MENU was excellent and the presentation of all the entrees was magnificent. The SERVICE was outstanding especially "Sue", our waitress for the evening. We all had an absolutely fantastic evening!
Thank You, Roger and Coleen Hudon.
(The gingerbread salmon & 16 oz. bone-in ribeye with horseradish crust were overwhelmingly delicious as was the bread pudding for a desert!!)

“I agree with Elizabeth H! Great place but there was hiccups ....”
Reviewed October 11, 2013 via mobile

We too had the very young waitress who must have been new, she was very sweet but unfortunetly clueless about many things. Book at 5:30-5:45 in colder months to catch the sunset and request a table not booth. The prime rib was great but pork was dry and underdone at the same time . ( too thick cut)
The most delicious thing we ate was the bread with herb butter and the salad with Carmelized onion/bacon dressing! Yum. Overall nice place to dine in Galena off the beaten path . But I still like fried green tomatoes and the log cabin better.

“My Wifes Birthday”
Reviewed October 9, 2013

We made our reservations for 5:45 pm and had the best table and view of the Mississippi River and sunset. The service was excellent. All the staff was great. From the cheese and chutney starter to the dessert everything was just great. My wife had the gingerbread salmon and it was to die for. I can't wait to go there again and stay at thier bed and breakfast. I will tell everyone I can about the Goldmoor. Thanks for a great birthday for her.

“Dinner is fantastic”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

Here's a pro-tip: book the Chef's table so the other diners won't see you licking out the bowl from your Curried Pumpkin Bisque soup. We took friends along on this trip, and our friend said it was the best ribeye steak he's ever had. I make it a point to trust Chef Taylor's creations and have never been disappointed. The beef wellington is the house specialty. The Apricot Glazed Cornish Game Hen was delicious. The dining room view of the river is very nice, too. The perfect place for an upscale but relaxing meal you will really enjoy.
