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!

Service was fantastic, but the food fell a little short. Nothing special about it all. Plenty of other choices in town, and now wish we had gone to One Eleven Main.

My actual rating would fall between average and very good. I think the strategy here was ordering the right meal. Our party of 12 had a reservation and we were led to the back of the restaurant to a charming nook where our table awaited. I was glad we were seated here as the front part of the Market House...

Right in the heart of Galena the Market House serves up great food at reasonable prices. They even offer the "pick two" option with choices of soup, salad or half sandwich. 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

The ambience was right on for dinner with friends. The wait staff was great and the food was very well prepared and very tasty. It was worth it.

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.
