Sunset Grille - Chestnut Mountain Resort

8700 W Chestnut Road, Galena, IL 61036


This full-service resort is located eight miles southeast of Galena on a wooded palisade overlooking the Majestic Mississippi River. Amenities include an indoor pool, whirlpool, sauna, and on-site restaurants & lounge.

At the Sunset Grille, you’re in for a refreshing fine-dining experience with a view that’s almost as spectacular as the food itself.

Perched high on a bluff overlooking the Upper Mississippi River Valley, this restaurant offers a little bit of everything – including a 1,400 square foot outdoor dining deck with a view you won’t soon forget. But the delectable food is the real attraction. From signature sandwiches to mouthwatering steaks and fresh seafood. It’s dining you just have to experience!
