Had to try the fried green tomatoes in the namesake appetizer. They were perfectly grilled. Food was also good and we had over the top service

The fried green tomatoes were amazing, but everything else was just okay. Overall the items here are over priced for what they are. You do get large portions however, so if you go, I'd suggest splitting a plate. I'd prefer to eat somewhere that serves more local food.

We recently ordered a meal to go from Fried Green Tomatoes and had our family over to enjoy and enjoy we did. A complete meal with salad, bread and entrée everything was delicious. The salad was fresh and had so many goodies in it, nice soft bread and both the entrees we got were just delicious. Although we all ate... More

We enjoyed Fried Green Tomatoes for dinner last week. It is a nice Italian restaurant with wonderful bread served before the meal and Lobster Ravioli with huge chunks of Lobster.

We ate there and found the waitstaff ill prepared for simple questions ask of him. He told us that he was a college student and only worked a few days a week. His problem, is he did not seek out the answers to my questions. Food was fine but not spectacular, service was slow for a night when the tables... More

What a wonderful surprise! Our party of four tried several different dishes including the fried green tomatoes (Tuscan version) which we loved (better I thought than those I have had in NC and GA). All the dishes were prepared perfectly. Several highlights included the espresso steak sauteed in shallots and port wine. The best I have ever tasted! My shrimp... More

We loved this restaurant. We all had different dishes and each one was delicious. We had a starter of the Mac and cheese which was great. The waitress was excellent and really took great care of us. They brought a delicious sundae with a candle for the birthday girl. We loved it!

The food was delicious with fresh ingredients and prices were really good. All of the staff was so nice and accomodating. We had our stroller with us and the staff were so helpful by finding a table that had room and clearing paths / holding doors.

The fried green tomatoes were unusual. Not bad but different from others that I've had in the south where fried green tomatoes come from. The rest of the meal was excellent. The stake was as good as any of the top end restaurants I've been to for about half the price. I recommend a meal at Fried Green Tomatoes when... More
