The hotel itself is quite spectacular and the grounds kept up and looked absolutely beautiful. Sitting high on the hilltop overlooking the Mississipi - it was so peaceful and as we dined we watched the sun go down. We were with 3 other couples and our food was excellent and they gave us a private room with windows all around us. The owner's were quite delightful and we all enjoyed hearing about the hotel and he even gave us a tour of the kitchen. Galena in itself is beautiful and a town I would like to come back to and visit all the things we didn't get to do. If you want a dining experience, this is the place to go. The hotel I would love to come back to for a romantic getaway. LOVED EVERYTHING ABOUT IT!

Our motorcycle group, RTE, always finds dining a strong part of the day's ride. We found out about the Goldmoor Inn, made reservations, and found it to be a most hospitable restaurant! It is very elegant with a sophisticated menu, and we were welcomed with no pretenses or misgivings as we were certainly not dressed to match the high level of service and atmosphere. Tom and Patricia Smith are very welcoming owners/hosts and they took a lot of their busy time to make us feel at home as we had nice conversations with both of them. The food was terrific, dessert almost unlawful, and some of our group took a tour of the restaurant kitchen at Tom's invitation. Go there. Enjoy yourself. These a great people with a great staff and it's worth however many miles you need to travel to get there!

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.

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.

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.
