Our sever was very attentive and lunch was great. It's upstairs and they offer seating in front and back. We enjoyed the back area with sky light and limestone... More

After traveling a few days one gets weary of fast food. This restaurant had great service and they were knowledgeable about wine and gluten free diets. My party had fried chicken, crab Louis, chicken and tuna salad . We even had pictures taken in a private room and had spirits join us .

Loved hiking up the stairs to discover this secret hideaway. Felt like we were let into a private club. Tried a waitress recommended drink - white wine with pineapple and peach juice - great summer drink. Followed it up with a delicious BLT sandwich, my husband had the special - meatloaf with mashed potatoes. Very satisfied and the prices were... More

First of all, not only is their good great, but their hospitality is out of this world. They treat you like family. Good prices and family oriented. It's a must go. I recommend the chicken salad sandwich. My son and I loved it.

I recently went in for a bite to eat and the lady working there suggested the tilapia sandwich with some crab salad that had walnuts and cranberries you could add if you wanted. It was very good and the service was courteous and prompt. I will be back.

We drove up here this past Ssturday just to have lunch here. We have been here several times and we are never disappointed! We had the Cabernet burger, which was awesome. We also go here specifically for the crab salad , which is the best crab salad we have ever had!!!! We will definitely return!!!

My wife and I had a very nice lunch in Galena at the Market House Restaurant. The upstairs dining room is small but very nice with a lovely bar. The sandwiches that we had were very good with fresh ingredients. There was a nice choice of beverages to compliment the food. The Market House is a great place to stop... More

This restaurant has old fashioned charm combined with great food. The owner even took the time to answer our questions about the building. We really enjoyed the food and the service, and we recommend this restaurant. Check out the specials before ordering.
