Perfectly manicured landscaping, good views, friendly service, good food (pork chop a bit dry), reasonable wine list.

My wife and I have been going to Galena for a short anniversary junket for a few years now. In the process we have eaten at a number of the restaurants in Galena. Without a doubt, the Goldmoor Inn's restaurant is the best available dining choice in the area. The restaurant is part of a larger "inn" and is situated... More

This was our first stay at the Goldmoor Inn and it was worth the trip! We sat in one of the very comfortable booths which were nice and felt more private than usual booths. Overall it was quiet with normal conversation volume. The decor was very nice. Service was a little slow due to the server telling us that stock... More

I am so glad that we went to this restaurant and we used the trip advisors guidance for the selection. I was looking for fine dining in a romantic setting and that is what we got! I don't think we would have stumbled upon this place without researching first. It is a beautiful setting with a castle on the river.... More

When visiting Galena Illinois we highly recommend searching out the Goldmoor Inn for a wonderful laid back evening dinner. It’s worth the 20 minute ride south of Galena along a winding small country road. Once you’re there you’ll be thoroughly surprised at the grounds that blend from the raw natural surroundings to one of resort quality without feeling out of... More

Celebrating our 16th anniversary, we picked the highly rated Goldmoor for a special dinner out. We were taken to our seats right away and had a fairly good view of the Mississippi River. The food was great, and our server, Linda, was superb. The atmosphere was very peacefeul. They brought out a special little cake--which was delicious--to help us celebrate,... More

It was my wife’s birthday. To celebrate this wonderful moment in her life, I planned a weekend in Galena, Ill. I wanted to take her someplace special for dinner, so I made reservations at the Goldmoor Inn. When asked by the woman on the phone where we would like to sit, I told her of my wishes and she replied... More

Had dinner on a Sunday night. Made a reservation for 7:00, arrived about ten minutes early and met by Co-owner Tom. He asked if we wanted a tour of the B&B, said sure, and walked through three separate, beautiful rooms and the kitchen. The tour alone was outstanding. After the tour, Kyle sat us next to the window (we had... More

This was our luxury day during a week of camping. A nice dinner for two and WOW did it turn out perfect. The Goldmoor is beautiful and looked like it had just been built, inside and out. The service was wonderful from the moment we stepped inside the door. We were given a choice of where to sit (a table... More

We went to Goldmoor on the evening of our 5-year anniversary to find a beautiful property overlooking the Mississippi River. When we mentioned that we had reservations, they immediately took us to a private booth with a window view so we could have a romantic evening. It was as if they had read our minds and went out of their... More
