Diner Reviews
  • "Everything about the Restaurant was excellent. Highly recommend."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "Our table was ready and we were seated immediately. Our server arrived quickly and described our dining options--menu, breakfast buffet, or Sunday brunch. We chose the brunch for ~$25 per person. The price of the brunch includes everything but the tax. Sunday brunch diners are offered mimosas and/or champagne in addition to juices, coffee, etc. Breakfast items included a made-to-order egg station (omelets available), assorted fruits, as well as hot and cold entrees. Hot lunch items included three entrees and two sides. There was also a carving station (three meats), a variety of salads, cheeses, and desserts. When the restaurant got busy it did take a little longer for our server to remove our plates and refill beverages."

  • "After a sub par dinner the previous night in downtown galena we decided to give Woodlands at Eagle Ridge a try. They have really scenic tables of the frozen lake behind the lodge. The wine list and menu are really something you can't find outside of Chicago, its obvious this place caters to more Chicago clientele. Food and service were excellent and they even took our picture out front by the fireplace. Highly recommend stopping by this restaurant."

  • "This was our first time at the Woodlands of Eagle Ridge and we were very satisfied. Service was very good as was the food. On the Saturday evening, they had an all-you-can-eat prime rib bar with salad, loaded baked potatoes and other root vegetables that looked like we'd have to get rolled out on a wheelbarrow if we opted in to this choice (in other words it would be a great choice for hungry men). But we went with a lighter meal of a small fillet and sauteed bass. Cocktails to start (martinis) were mixed well with top shelf choices and the Holy Sisters dessert (you'll have to go there to figure this one out) was over the top excellent - think deep fried Sinnibon :) Add this to good dining choices in the Galena territory."

  • "This has been our 4th year up here. We love it. We are not diappointed at all. My husband and I celebrate our anniversary in Eagle Ridge. It was everything and more."

  • "We had a great dinner. All the people and waitress were very friendly and helpful. The food was very good and the setting was very arm and romantic . The only negative was the service was slow and not attentive enough to our needs. Overall though, we had a wonderful time and would definitely come back"

  • "There was one exception to the food. A filet was ordered medium rare and it was well done. The kitchec took too long to correct as the rest of the group of 8 had finished eating by the time the properly prepared steak was served. m"

  • "Buffet delicious, however pricey for those who do not go back for seconds. Potatos should be served beside meat, then accoutrements."
    Dined on 12/25/2013
  • "From the moment we were seated, there was an unusual smell at our table. Not sure if it was a moldy/musty smell, or what it was. We mentioned it to our waitress and she had no response. It ruined our dinner, though. The smell was not pleasant at all!"
