The food was good, steak was a little rare for medium good none the less. Will definitely come back again and tell my friends to check it out.

We love the Sunset Grille!!! The wait staff all took their mask wearing and cleanliness seriously during our visit. The cheese curds are the BEST in the area - and the Walleye strips??? OMG Best place ever - any time of the year.

Service and view were excellent. This restaurant was advertised as having fine dining. I did not check the menu and they only had 3 choices and then provided menu of their grill. I was expecting more selections and to include filet, lobster, etc

The spectacular view of the Mississippi from the mountain top makes this a “must try” when visiting Galena. Our service was attentive and unobtrusive; the food was adequate but could use some punchier flavors. The drive up the mountain - and back down - was an experience in itself. Be there for sunset; it will be a memorable stop on your Galena trip plan.

Beautiful setting high over the Mississippi River, we sat on the outside patio, shaded by huge umbrellas. This is our second visit in three weeks. Went there for late lunch to meet friends. The Reuben is the best my hubby has ever tasted, I had a burger, friends had barbecue, all were delicious. This is a great place to dine, had some families eating as well, nice, casual, and kid-friendly too. Will be going there in the fall to view the changing leaves and enjoy the view of the Mississippi.

My husband and I have been to the Sunset Grille several times before and we were looking forward to introducing friends from out of town to the food and the beautiful view. The evening didn’t start out well when the hostess told us to make sure that we reserved outdoor seating next time if we wanted outdoor seating. We actually had reserved outdoor seating and tried to tell her so but she was in too much of a hurry to listen to us. Fortunately our server was excellent and the meal was very good so the rest of the evening was enjoyable. The hostess just needs a little more polish when greeting customers.

We sat in the patio due to covid-19 and wanted to enjoy the outdoors. The staff decided to close all umbrellas providing shades due to some wind that was expected. Further in the afternoon the winds dissipated and was gone. The staff did not bother to open the umbrellas again to provide comfort from the strong and hot sun that day. The experience was ruined that day.

Good pizza and service. Large umbrellas were very helpful to keep customers cool.

One suggestion is to wipe dow.n the chairs and the tables, not just the table when guests leave.

We had dinner at Sunset Grill on a Saturday night. The service was fine. But the food was nothing to write home about. I had the same chicken pasta special. It was really flavorless. It really wasn’t worth the price they were charging for it. My husband had shrimp tacos which were also not very impressive there were like 4 tiny shrimp on 2 tortillas. I would not reccomended eating here. There are many other restaurants downtown that are worth paying 20$ for a plate.

Read about the beautiful views from Chestnut Mountain and since we enjoy dining outside, thought we would try it. The view was really pretty, but after that, not the best experience. Service was fairly slow, 20 minutes before even a drink order was offered. They were very busy, but the rest of the evening went about the same. I personally did not care for my strip steak, but my wife enjoyed the prime rib. Normally I enjoy lingering a little while after dinner, but here, I was anxious to leave.

The steak I ordered was 99% fat. There was no meat to eat and sadly enough this was their special for the night. The cocktails were awful as well. The resort has so much potential, but the restaurant could very well ruin their reputation. We stayed in a B&B off of main street and drove out that way just for dinner. I'm not a very picky eater nor do I tend to leave reviews, but I thought this was a very disappointing experience.

Hostess did not know that we had reserved "standard" table (compared to outdoor). Not sure why but thought I'd point it out. Food and drink were quite good. Price reasonable. Lovely view. Will definitely return.

A beautiful location for watching the sunset over the Mississippi. Good bruschetta. The Walnut Encrusted Walleye is great, a big portion. Prices are a bit high but maybe you’re paying for the view.

My husband and I went there for an early dinner. There weren’t too many people there at that time yet. The appetizers were good. We got spinach artichoke dip and walleye strips. For the main course I got the Sunset Grill salad and I felt it had a weird flavor to it (I guess it was the vinaigrette that came with it) that I didn’t really enjoy, and a side of horseradish mashed potatoes. My husband got a steak that was over cooked, but he said it still tasted good. The views/ambiance was great though.

Steak should have had more flavoring. Potatoes and green beans were wonderful. Staff seemed to be running around rather than having a section. The absolute best part...and a must see...is their view!!!!

We went to Sunset Grill with a group of friends, it was a bit of a drive for us and some were hesitant. Once we got there everyone agreed the sunset was beautiful, service was great and the food was amazing. There wasn’t a bad review from a group of 7. Thank you Sunset Grill for exceeding our expectations.
