We had a lovely lunch at The Market House when we had our girls weekend getaway to Galena! The main reason we chose this place over the other places was their gluten free menu! The staff was very knowledgable about cross contamination and dedicated fryers, etc. I had the most yummy grilled cheese sandwich on GF bread! If you have... More

We stopped here on rainy Thursday night and had delicious meatloaf special! Was perfect! It's family owned and service personable. Owner checked on us few times. Food excellent, portions generous. Had margarita which was fair - recommend sticking to featured drinks on menu.

Our group converged on this nice, family owned restaurant and shook it up a bit. They had such a variety of dishes to choose from that was the only problem....I couldn't decide. Our waitress was amazing. She was patient and helpful in explaining our options. With such a large group of us she was quick in taking our orders and... More

The Seafood Salad (Crab Louis) was excellent. There was a lot of variety on the menu. The service was good. We would come here again for a meal. I loved that the waitress automatically just gave the 5 of us separate checks. It makes it so much easier.

I met a friend for lunch here today and we had an excellent meatloaf special. The temperatures outside were arctic, but it was warm, friendly and yummy here. I was offered a fine selection of teas and a personal hot water pot, and the meatloaf was moist and tender. The mashed potatoes and gravy were homemade. This is a great,... More

We eat at the Market House every time we come to Galena. The mushroom burger, fries, and the Crab Louis are the best. The owners are great and so friendly. I love the decor!

We eat at Market House every time we come to Galena. The sisters are all so wonderful with their hospitality. The food is all so delicious that it's hard to pick just one entree! I have to say that the crab Louis is hands down the best.

Had lunch here during a trip to Galena last weekend. This is a very small, very crowded restaurant, but that is some of its charm. The service was competant. I had the Crab Louis Melt and it was wonderful! Just filled with crab. My husband had chili (good, but sweet - which the waitress had told him it was beforehand)... More

We had visited this restaurant on a Saturday about 1:00 pm so that is probably the reason the restaurant was really packed. Space is really tight and tables are rather close. We ordered hamburgers and they were good but we would really like a warm bun on them. The beer cheese soup was very good as were the fried peppers.... More
