Definitely a top-flight restaurant and meal. Extensive and reasonable wine list. Very creative menu - not many restaurants serve beef carpaccio any more and it was excellent. We had the Veal Piccata and Pesto Rustica and they were as good as any Italian dishes we've had at any restaurant. Service was spot on - no rush, attentive but not intrusive... More

I have been to Fried Green Tomatoes many times and the food and service are always outstanding. On this visit I ordered the Chicken Pot Pie which I've never had before, it was amazing. The pastry was flakey and nice pieces of tender chicken, potatoes and vegetables. Accompanied by the house salad and warm bread, perfect meal

We went on a Tuesday..so all house wines were $2! Great start to a great meal. My daughter had the house Moscato and I had the Pinot Noir. Both were excellent. We enjoyed the bread, infused olive oil, salads and especially our fish entrees. I had the walleye, and she had the potato encrusted salmon. They were delicious. We split... More

For 6 years my wife and I have enjoyed Fried Green Tomatoes every time we have gone for dinner. Recently, we needed to assist a charity in securing a location for their annual dinner in the area. We agreed to help and chose Fried Green Tomatoes. We couldn't have been more pleased with the process - from an initial conversation... More

We didn't have a reservation, but stood at the hostess stand while she was on a phone call for 5 or so minutes without any eye contact. Finally we were served and our waiter was great. They were preparing for Valentine's dinner crowd the next evening, so seemed more interested in getting us out quickly. The food was average, and... More
