At The Market House Restaurant we focus on the dinner table with homemade food like mom and grandma use to make. We are Family Run by three sisters and a brother and enjoy helping others to share in their good times.

Most of the restaurants open after 4pm in Galena, but The Market opens for lunch. Very good place with many good choices. The sandwiches were very well done. Good place to go for a homemade meal.
