We were here on a Friday evening in September. The service was prompt, friendly, helpful, knowledgeable about the various entrees, and not "overbearing". Out of the four different entrees -- lasagna, vegetarian, seafood and a sausage dish -- all of us rated them as excellent. The food came out quickly after we finished our salads, and all of the dishes... More

Be sure to dine here when in Galena. The marinara sauce is too die for on whatever dish you order. We were lucky to have Becca serve us.

We visit Galena 2 to 3 times a year. Being 2hours and 30 minutes from home makes for a nice quick get away. For a few years Fried Green Tomatoes has been our number one stop! We're long time guests now and refer here often. We've celebrated many things here including my acceptance into graduate school. Labor day weekend was... More

We ate an evening meal here with 2 other couples. Our waitress brought only 2 loaves of bread to our table. After observing other tables with 1 - 2 people each having a loaf of bread, we asked for another one. I love fried green tomatoes so I ordered them. They are not at all like Grandma used to make....

We had the fried green tomato appetizer, it was good but so heavy in breading, sauce and cheese you couldn't tell if it was tomato, egg plant or whatever inside. I've had better. The salad greens were not the best quality and you don't get a choice of dressing. They provide fresh hot crusty bread with olive oil. My husband... More
