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.

Beautiful views of the river and lush greenery on the outside deck. The canopy of umbrellas kept us cool. Our salads were crisp and tasty. Enjoyable place to have lunch or dinner.

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.

Everything was great, EXCEPT my wife's steak. She ordered medium well, with almost no pink. It came extremely rare. And her baked potato came dry, with no butter. She sent the steak back, and our server brought her some butter. The steak came back again, rare! Mostly pink! She didn't bother to send it back again. Our hostess, our server, the view, all fantastic. Our cook, not do much. My Salmon, however, was delicious.

We were in Galena for the day and looked on Open Table for restaurants and were thrilled to see the mountain top/sunset option of Sunset Grille. They didn’t disappoint. We sat outside on the patio and had a lovely view of the sunset with a delicious meal and good wine. I had the salmon and my husband had the Sea Bass. We were both very satisfied. The service was great, too. No complaints.

Excellent Martinis, shaken table side. Very good side salad. Hubs had Pork T-Bone & green beans, I had Pecan Crusted Walleye. I am following Keto diet. The waitperson checked & said there was no flour, only pecans. A recent Dubuque newspaper article on the reception area wall said that it had flour, pecan, & panko. Nevertheless, it was a large serving & very tasty. A few nights earlier in the week, we had the Grouper & the Chilean Sea Bass. Very fresh & cooked well. Landing to return soon for Martinis & Sunset on the outdoor patio. A great spot to take friends & family visiting the Galena area.

My wife and I dined early so we could go for a walk on some of the beautiful trails at the resort. Our meals were excellent. I ordered the pork chop special and requested it to be slightly pink in the middle. It was perfect. The fresh green bean side dish was cooked to perfection as well. We do not dine out a lot, but this is one of our favorite locations.

We had to wait a few minutes at the hostess stand before anyone approached us to be seated. Once seated we had to wait almost 15 minutes for anyone to even take our drink order. The hostess came over and apologized for the wait and said it was because they were busy but there were about 10 open tables in the tiny restaurant, so I’m not sure how long we would have waited had the place actually been full. The salad was fine, and my chicken fusilli pasta was good, but my fiancé got the New York strip and it was absolutely terrible quality for how much they are charging. You could go to a high quality steakhouse for that price. It was fatty and had very little flavor. The view of the sunset was the best part by far. It really was a beautiful view. Overall, we wouldn’t go back but the view made the night enjoyable still.
