We enjoyed the fried green tomato appetizer! That was the best part of the entire meal. I was not too fond of the stuffed eggplant (it could have used more tomato and onion) and my husband thought his filet was pretty good. Overall, the atmosphere was great! We would happily go again.

We enjoyed the fried green tomato appetizer! That was the best part of the entire meal. I was not too fond of the stuffed eggplant (it could have used more tomato and onion) and my husband thought his filet was pretty good. Overall, the atmosphere was great! We would happily go again. I would just pick another entree.

Half price bottles of wine on Fridays! Good wine selection. Service was friendly and on top of things! Pasta dishes were large so pace yourself if having apps/salad/bread. Salmon pesto was good.

The fried green tomatoes themselves were a great start. But the steak that I ordered was tasty and so tender it melted with a fork! It is a nice looking restaurant, and like a lot of other places in Galena, located conveniently on Main St. We would definitely go back.

My wife and I have eaten thru the majority of the downtown Galena restaurants. All of them have been great...no doubt about it. Yet, the restaurant that still stands out for dinner is Fried Green Tomatoes. They continue to be a touch above in our eyes. Great steak for myself and lobster ravioli for my wife. We will be back...

They lost our reservation even though we had a written confirmation. So bad table. Appetizer okay, salad had no choice of dressing. Entree average. Service was lackluster. Much better choices in this town.

We had a fantastic visit to Fried Green Tomatoes! Service was fantastic as usual. We sat at the bar first and had an amazing bottle of Rombauer Cab to start our night. Wow! Amazing!

We were five fabulous females having a getaway to Galena. We ladies disagree about alot of things but deciding where to eat is never one of them. Fried Green Tomatoes is always our choice. Our food was sumptuously perfect and included Lasagna, Spaghetti and Meatballs, and a Pesto Tortalloni. The salad, bread, and wines were all wonderful, as always. The... More

We ordered the lasagna and the chicken Marsala. Both were very good. We especially enjoyed the fried green tomatoes and 1/2 off bottle of wine on Fridays. Abstract was excellent! Our service was very good also. No complaints. Will definitely go back next time we visit Galena.
