Popped in for a quick drink and a snack following the Halloween Parade. Despite the restaurant being packed, we received excellent service and delicious specialty cocktails. We loved the friendly staff!

We ate lunch at the Market House Restaurant. It was like stepping back a couple of decades. The food was excellent and service was good. We enjoyed the house specialty Crab Louis and also the lunch special of meatloaf.

My wife had read up and said this place had received good reviews. For me, I would just describe it as average. The food was OK and nondescript. Staff was friendly and prices reasonable, but from our experience, you can do better

This is a nice resto on the 2nd. floor in downtown Galena. Historical building. Friendly service and good food for honest buck! Parking in street. No wifi. Recommended.

Stopped by for a light lunch while shopping on Main Street. Quaint, shabby chic ambiance. Enjoyed the garden vegetable soup and crab Louis special. It was worth the walk up the stairs.

Really nice first stop for a meal in town. #’s 1,4 and 8 were a delight! (If you have a big family you’ll understand the numbers hahah). Great food worth the walk up the steps!
