We dined under the elegant outdoor pavilion for the New Orleans-style Barbeque night. The food was authentic Cajun fare, the music was fantastic, live, Dixieland jazz, and the service was cheerful and helpful. What a beautiful grounds and the best views in The Galena area. I think a visit to the Goldmoor is worth the short drive through the country... More

At a wedding rehearsal dinner we attended, the food was excellent -- and the service as well; the staff were very friendly and helpful. Besides all that, the country setting of the hotel and restaurant was beautiful; the hotel and grounds are obviously well cared for. All in all, it was a great evening!

I told my wife that this had to be the very best rehearsal dinner we had ever had. The room was so intimate, and the food was exquisite. I had the salmon, which was out of this world. The wait staff was extremely friendly and made us feel very at home. The capstone of the evening was the view of... More

The Goldmoor Dining is up there with any gourmet restaurant that you have been to. We own a Bed and Breakfast and send our guests there on a regular basis. They have never been disappointed

Ate at the Goldmoor on 8/31/2012. Food was excellent and the view is among the best in Galena. The Inn is a great place to stay as well!

This was a very good meal, but with all the great restaurants on main street, it's not worth the 15 minute drive. Granted, it does have a nice view of the Mississippi River and the food is great, but again, we had great options right in downtown that would have been just as good.

After both reading and hearing about the Goldmoor Dining Room we had the opportunity to visit it ourselves. We were very happy with our choice for dinner. The setting was very picturesque; a “castle-like” building on the bluff above the Mississippi River. Our table looked over the bluff to the river and the setting sun beyond. Most of the tables...

We stayed, and dined, at Goldmoor Inn and Cottages and Goldmoor Dining. A wonderful experience. The food, staff, view, ambience - cannot be matched. Thanks!

The service was excellent; our server was knowledgeable and friendly and very attentive. The food (we had Beef Wellington with garlic mashed potatoes and Walleye with herbed gnocchi) was beyond anything we've ever had!!!
