We met family at the Market House for lunch. The food was amazing even the duck appetizer. The crab Louis was great. The Salmon Sandwich was outstanding. We sat at a window seat overlooking the Galena Main Street and could People watch as we ate. You would not be disappointed if you was a great meal with friends. We also... More

My wife and I didn't want a large noon meal so we just came here and ordered a 1/2 lb burger for $8. I ordered the burger medium and that is how it came! So because of the cook making my burger how I ordered it and actually splitting the plates for us in the kitchen I ranked this place... More

Passing through we stopped for lunch. My wife had a great taco and got my pork tenderloin fix. The restaurants in our home area don't serve this, so it was a treat. Our food was very good and the service was great. One problem is that this place is on the second floor and both entrances require climbing fairly steep... More

This restaurant has some of the best gluten free food that I have ever had at a restaurant. The 2 sisters who run it are both gluten free so they know what they are doing. I had the the pasta with chicken, and a salad. The pasta came with bread and the salad with crackers. That was impressive by itself!... More

To visit this restaurant you climb a set of stairs and walk into what is almost being behind a bar. As the person said you're here to bartend? She was joking of course. This is a family run small restaurant with a bar. When we walked in for dinner, I thought oh-oh we are in trouble. This could be farther... More

Sorry to say, this place is really bad. I know that small towns don't offer gourmet food, so I was expecting a simple breakfast of scrambled eggs, bacon, and toast. The bacon was cold, the eggs were rubbery, and the toast was the cheapest bread available from Wonder Bread. Place smelled a bit moldy. Sweet waitress and my Mom's cake... More

I have had many lunches here with girl friends and my husband as well. The food is always fresh and delicious. So cool that they donate to a different cause each month
