Located in one of the oldest buildings in Galena, the Market House Restaurant at 204 Perry Street, on the cobblestones directly off Main Street at 120 North Main, has been serving delicious lunch and dinner fare for over 30 years. Originally established in 1982 at the corner of Perry and Commerce, Market House was relocated to its current address in 1984. Built in 1836, it is one of the oldest buildings in Galena, the Captain Reuben Brush Building, which is constructed of Galena brick. Sit in the main dining room and admire the original tin ceiling and a view of downtown Galena. Or sit at the mahogany bar and refresh yourself with one of many specialty drinks or a frosty mug of beer or a glass of fine wine. Or sample a cup of home-made soup or breaded dill pickle spears or grilled shrimp or almond breaded duck tenders in the Garden Room with its limestone and brick walls and live greenery and windows. My wife and I opted for a quick lunch, soup and sandwich. The 1/2-pound Tavern burger with onions and cheese and pickles and the oven roasted Reuben with sauerkraut and corned beef were highly recommended. They are original items from the 1982 restaurant, along with beer battered onion rings and the home-made Crab Louis salad, and after one taste it was obvious why they have been so popular over the years. In Galena, with so much competitive for tourist dollars, you have to be good. And Market House has been good for more that 30 years.
