We started with the house salads with homemade bread and went onto the main courses. Filets, osso bucco & veal parm were all fantastic. Wine list was impressive. Desserts were not to be missed. All of this in a beautiful stone building.

Second night in Galena after the bad experienced we had in the first night, we decided to visit the Fried Green Tomatoes restaurant for dinner. This was the restaurant which was recommended to us by the B&B owner. This restaurant was great. First to say, the lighting and atmosphere were great. Since the plate of food was big, like the...

We've eaten at Fried Green Tomatoes for years - even before it was on Main Street and have always enjoyed our meals. Last night, four of us dined there and loved our meals. The bread is amazing - salad is great. Between us we had Mac n' Cheese, Lobster Ravioli and Walleye. Every one of us was more than satisfied.... More

Selected this restaurant after several locals and our B&B hosts (Farmer's Guest House) gave such rave reviews.We initially thought this would be a Southern style restaurant but was pleasantly surprised by the Italian menu. We had a delicious Anniversary celebration. Our waitress was attentive and instinctively knew when not to interrupt . Our meals were outstanding in both presentation and... More

Our family group of 10 adults were accommodated in a semi-private dining area. The food was excellent, atmosphere pleasing in a stone-walled historical building. Recommend the eggplant parm and fried green tomatoes. Others in the group had pasta dishes, chicken piccata, and other Italian staples, prepared with care and served elegantly. Our waitress didn't blink when we asked for 5... More

We enjoyed a nice dinner at FGT. The exposed brick walls and pleasant finishout were a nice backdrop to our meal. I had the pork osso bucco which was delicious. My husband ordered the ribeye which he thought was tender and flavorful. For fun we ordered a side of the smoked Gouda and Gorgonzola Mac and cheese which was good.... More

We always come to fried green tomatoes when in town. However, we have never been blown away by either the food, or service. It was good, but not great...which I expect for the price. No children's items on the menu...suggested an a la carte item. Perfect, except the Mac and cheese a la carte item was spicy. They could have... More
