Went there for our anniversary. It is in between seasons so we were the only ones there.
Food and service was good and the view of the Mississippi was great. Would recommend it but not sure how it would be when there is a crowd.

Went for Saturday night dinner.
Went for Saturday night dinner. Made reservations for 7 PM but on this Saturday it wasn't necessary, the place was empty. I had the beef tenderloins with cheesy risotto and it was very good but in my opinion the presentation was a little off with the risotto piled high in the middle of the plate and the beef tenderloins laid on top. Just saying it could have been done better. I thought the menu was a bit limited and the restaurant was pricey with most of the entree's being around $28-$30. I guess you pay for the view, which is a fantastic view of the Mississippi valley and a great sunset if you are there in the evening.

Outstanding Mother's Day Brunch!
We visited Chestnut Mountain for Mother's Day Brunch 2013. Although the resort itself could use a little updating, the two side-by-side restaraunts were updated. We had a window view (definitely request one if you can!) looking out over the now-green ski slopes and meandering Mississippi River. The view was outstanding. The food was delicious. There was quite a bit to chose from and the champagne fountain was a big hit. The large back deck of the dining area had amazing vistas, so I imagine that would be really nice once the weather is warm enough.
Service was friendly and attentive, especially for a buffet style brunch. The manager made his rounds, inquiring about our visit and everyone wished us a Happy Mother's Day. Recommended!

Great way to start weekend getaway
We sat on the patio with a beautiful view of the valley below sipping Mimosas & listening to the peaceful music they had playing. Their were beautiful birds flyng in the immediate distance. The staff called them turkey vultures. But they were beautiful birds with a wide wing span. Very nice lunch with friendly staff.

We were in Galena and made a reservation here because we heard about the view. Unfortunately the weather did not cooperate (not the restaurant's fault, obviously), or the view would have been spectacular. Great outdoor scenic patio area - I could imagine a private special event on a clear night would be wonderful. The only disappointment was that when I booked our reservation on Open Table I mentioned that we were celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary. There were only two tables when we were there, so it could not have been that they were too busy. Hostess failed to tell our server it was a special occasion is my guess. That was a disappointment but everything else about the experience was quite good.

I cane to visit the Galena area, and heard that I should 'check out' the C/Nut Sunshine Grille for beautiful sunset viewing. It was that and more ... the food and service were both excellent:)

Romantic Sunset Dinner
Made reservations in advance and were seated at table overlooking Mississippi river as the sun went down. Very beautiful and romantic. We paced our meal, starting with bruschetta appetizer. The waiter was very accommodating as we decided to share the summer special salad that included blueberries and strawberries. It was outstanding. I had the pork ribeye with blackberries which was very good. My wife had the stuffed chicken with risotto special which was outstanding. We highly recommend the chicken. Our waiter packed our cherry pie desert that is made locally for us to take with us. When we got back to our B&B room we enjoyed the tart cherry pie with the delicious ice cream accompaniment. We'll definitely be back! Waiter & staff excellent!

now more than just a great view
My wife and I have been eating here every time we are in Galena, it has been nice to watch this restaurant improve in the areas of service and food. It now has both those to match the million dollar views. Keep up the good work!

Excellent dining experience
We celebrated our anniversary at Sunset Grille. We had reservations at 7, which was perfect for a 7:23 pm sunset. The view ws spectacular. The food and wine was great and our service was excellent. We would definitely go back.

We enjoyed a wonderful evening celebrating our wedding anniversay. Our request for a quiet table was honored and the service was prompt, polite and professional.Even though we did not get to see a beautiful sunset due to overcast weather we had a remarkable time together. They remembered that it was a special occassion for us and treated us well. Our waitress really made our night a memorable experience when she wished us "Happy Anniversary." It was so nice that they had paid special attention to our reservation because we did not mention to them that we were celebrating our anniversay. We look forward to another romantic night out at the Sunset Grille and hope to return soon.

Nice time at Sunset Grille
I turned 50 the week before our visit, which was the reason for our 'getaway'.
Had a reservation at 6:00 and timed it perfectly to watch a beautiful sunset from the outdoor dining area. Food and service was fantastic. The menu is not extensive, but very adequate -- we both had filet mignon and they were served perfectly medium-rare as requested. Highly recommend. Cheers!

Great Experience for Romantic Meal
My wife and I heartily enjoyed every aspect of the dining experience. The food was great, the ambience was great, the server was wonderful and the view was phenomenal! Immediately after we finished dining we sent messages to our friends and family letting them know what a wonderful experience we had and encouraging them to come up and enjoy an evening as we did. So many of our dining experiences have been at best on par and at worst a disaster - it was truly a great surprise to find and experience the dining at the Sunset Grille - Chestnut Mountain! HIGHLY recommended to others!

There were five ladies in our group for dinner. The atmosphere and decor were lovely. View of sunset, great! We all ordered different dinners and were all very satified with the meals. Will definitely go again.

A Gem on the Mt.
What a perfect setting for a sunset dinner. The view was sunsational with the Mississippi River's pantoramic view. The food was great. We had the broiled Walleye with Horseradish sauce potatoes and singed green beens. The server was very friendly and tended to our every need. We had made reservations for a window view in advance which I would suggest. A very enjoyable experience.

The service with check in was great they were able to add another couple to our reservation with no problem. Here is the thing about the service, We were given an entree menu and not a complete overall menu as we were looking to eat something lighter for dinner because we had been munching all day in town. We did ask for the menu with sandwiches and such. The waitress that we had only made a few passes by our table during the course of our meal and those visits were spread far apart. I can say the food was delicious and would recommend this establishment to anyone that wants to eat good food, but not if they're looking to waited on with more attentiveness. I do feel that they were understaffed for the busy weekend

We arrived early for dinner and really enjoyed seeing the sunset, beautiful as promised. Our whole party chose the traditional turkey thanksgiving dinner menu, and it was quite tasty.

Our first time to the mountain - and everything was as described online. The food was excellent, the service was great and the view of the mountain was beautiful, skiers and snowboarders alike. We'd definitely come back when we are in galena.
