While in Galena for an overnight we wanted to eat in a local restaurant on the main street, and The Market House filled the bill quite well. Situated on the second floor of an historic downtown building, the restaurant features tasty portions, including their signature crab Louis salad. We would go there again.

The best part is the back room which has lots of plants and is very cheery but maybe the best part is the food, or is it the friendly accommodating service? All three are so good I cannot rate one higher than the other. It's a gluten free heaven plus pay with cash or check and you get a dollar off coupon for your next visit. Yup! This place has it all for a great experience.

We ate lunch twice, it was so good. The hamburgers are great and don't miss the soup of the day. The crab Louis salad is very rich and good. They have a different special every day, worth considering. The Market House Restaurant is run by 3 sisters and their brother is the chef. Very friendly and great atmosphere. Don't miss if you visit Galena.

We wanted a light dinner, and the Market House Swordfish Salad was perfect to share. Service was excellent as well.
