A word from Sunset Grille - Chestnut Mountain
The Sunset Grille is a refreshing fine dining experience, where the view is almost as spectacular as the food. Perched high on a bluff, and featuring a 1,400 sq ft outdoor dining deck overlooking the Upper Mississippi River Valley, the restaurant offers a little bit of everything. From signature sandwiches, mouth watering steaks, to fresh seafood. Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "When staying at Chestnut Mountain I would recommend skipping the drive into Galena and getting dinner at this wonderful, decently priced gem."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "Food is good. It is quiet unless you happen to have a family with little children around. Kevin and Maureen (servers) are both fabulous and go above and beyond to provide great service. Definitely recommend. When the weather is good, it is great to sit out and watch the sunset."

  • "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."

  • "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"

  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "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!"

  • "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."
