Loved the peppermint hot chocolate! The chocolate brownie with ice cream and cool whip didn't have a brownie texture, but more of a cake texture - could have used more fudgey sauce!

The Market House is our favorite Galena restaurant. It has a great menu, reasonable prices and excellent quality. The owners/waitresses are very friendly and always go out of their way to please their customers.

I enjoyed an oversized pork tenderloin sandwich while my spouse liked her Crab Louie salad. The service was satisfactory and the prices were very reasonable. It seemed many locals frequent this restaurant.

We picked Market House since the wife loves steak, but doesn't need a two pounder. The flat iron steak was tasty and just her size. I had the special puff pastry chicken pot pie and was not disappointed. A nice staff rounded out the experience.
