Well, I was expecting an immaculate dinner. Instead, I got a nearly inedible Tuscan Mac and Cheese that was over seasoned with red pepper. My wife really enjoyed her Chicken Marsala, so that is why I bumped up the rating to average.

My husband and I were in Galena for the weekend and were looking for a good meal we could enjoy alone. We are usually out with the kids. This place fit the bill. Their house dressing and bread were delicious. My husband had the ribeye special and I had the filet and shrimp. Everything was cooked perfectly. Our waitress was... More

This restaurant is definitely one that I will visit again next time I'm in Galena. We both had the lasagna (how can you not order what the restaurant is famous for) and it was amazing. I have never been a huge fan of lasagna, but I truly enjoyed everything about theirs. The sauce, noodles, and cheese were in perfect harmony.... More

My husband and I went to Fried Green Tomatoes for my birthday dinner. I have read and heard about it for years and was looking forward to our dining experience. We had reservations and were seated immediately. It was at a table for two along the wall bench which I am not a fan of. Since I am a little... More

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
