We were not impressed given that it is located in the resort and is the "high end" restaurant in the resort. I ordered the special of steak and scalops. The scallops were good and the steak was not tender at all, "very chewy". My wife's dinner was "OK"

The staff was very accommodating, allowing me to first sit in the "closed section" by the window, then moving again out on to the screen porch. I felt a bit "high maintenance," but the staff really worked with me. I had a fantastic view of Galena Lake, enjoyed the sunset, and sampled a few of the selections off the menu.... More

Not worth the drive out here and also not worth the prices. Had a better meal and experience at One Eleven Main downtown Galena. If you are staying at Eagle Ridge, its worth the drive dtown Galena for a better meal.

Stayed here at Resort and went in for a late breakfast. Cold Waffles and Oatmeal. I'd keep under burners or make fresh as people come in. Seemed maybe we were there a non busy time mid-week, maybe that was why.

While staying at Eagle Ridge Resort we dined here three times...lunch, brunch and diner. Each meal was tasty and ample. Servers were always good and each time very kind to young children.

They have a wonderful breakfast buffet with a chef making omelets. Lots of fresh fruits, pastries, French toast, bacon, sausage, potatoes, scrambled eggs and all the fixings. You get coffee and choice of juices served to you. .

We live near the woodlands and have been many times. The food is not that great for the price. The views are pretty but you can't see much the way the tables are arranged. And the service is just average. It is a lovely resort and this is the main dining option. But it is just not that great. The... More

We had breakfast here two times. First time I had scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage and pancakes. Second day was an omelet and fruit. We sat overlooking Lake Galena. Nice view. Service was good. You weren't rushed to finish. Wait staff was friendly and helpful.
