I had their shrimp louise melt which was suppose to be their specialty. It was dry until I added some ranch dressing and the cheese was not melted. My husband had the flank steak and said it was very tender and cooked perfectly.

My husband and I ate lunch here. The atmosphere was very nice. It's in an interesting building and we ate in a nice sunny room looking over main street. The service was friendly and efficient.

The Tavern burger, served with Crab Louis and fresh potato chips is one of the best burgers in the area. Desserts are good as well. Service is outstanding. My favorite lunch place in Galena.

I was looking forward to meeting my parents and brother at the Market Place for my dad's birthday. I was a little concerned when I read about the flight of stairs going up to the restaurant.

Come every time we meet in Dubuque and have lunch. Guests had the crab Louie salad, chicken salad, grilled vegetables, and incredible Cabernet burger. All delish. Fab chef and staff can't wait for next visit in 2 weeks.

The food is great. Duck is a little pricey but worth it. Lots of menu choices & the tenderloins are great. I personally don't care for the cinnamon coffee but they will make regular if you ask for it.

We actually tried getting into the Log Cabin but the wait was too long. This place was kind of tucked away... We tried it and loved it. We will be back!
