Description: Our new menu offers crafted food featuring the rich tradition of American Cooking we all grew up loving. These lunch and dinner items are rooted in our collective memories, made better than we remember through our commitment to the most current techniques and the best possible products we can source. We do everything from scratch. Our breads are baked on premise every day. We’ll make our own flatbreads, salad dressings, sauces, pastas, cheeses, sausages and the list goes on. We will source as much as we can locally (good tomatoes are tough in February) to bring you the best quality ingredients we can find. Finally, we believe Great Dining starts with Great Food, and ends with Great Hospitality. Hospitality is a dialogue.

This restaurant has come a long way since it first opened. The atmosphere is pleasant with seating choices in several different areas to suit any diner. There is an area that is more formal in nature, like a dining room, and there is an area that is more casual section with booths and brick walls. During nicer weather, one may choose to eat outside on the terrace. The food is above average, and I highly recommend any of the salads for lunch, but for dinner the pot roast is a must. There is nothing more flavorful than the savory taste of this dish with mashed potatoes-real homestyle cooking. Prices are reasonable for the area.

The food here is excellent. I had the mozzarella ravioli veggie dish which was delicious and flavorful. The wine selection is good also.

Hesitated to venture out on this frozen Valentine's Day, sure that there would be crowds, rushed service, and below average food quality. Wrong!
The Market House was alive and bustling, ready for us with a gorgeous table, and the service and food were impeccable. We challenged our waitress with a special vintage year of our favorite wine and were super picky about our fish, switching sides, etc. She handled all with ease and grace.
What a great evening...we will be back soon.

Dined here with business colleagues while visiting from out of state. The interior of the restaurant was very inviting, with the lighting not overly bright and lots of dark woods and classic artworks. Service was impeccable, and I was very pleased with the hanger steak cooked rare as I ordered with tasty matchstick fries. In fact, it was hard to decide as so many menu items looked appealing and the pot roast someone else ordered looked amazing as well. I would definitely return if I were in the area again.
