My daughter ate at Fried Green Tomatoes for the first, but NOT last time, on Nov. 23, 1014. The food and wine selections were fantastic. We had a hard time making up our minds! Our server was knowledgeable, pleasant and knew just when to show up at our table. She was not intrusive. The food was out of this world.... More

We lunched at this restaurant .After all the raving reviews we both were questioning the what the big deal was .In a town that is somewhat in need of better upscale restaurants I guess this could be the shinning spot but just average in our opinion

We went to Fried Green Tomatoes for my birthday dinner. The food was delicious & surprisingly very light. We didn't feel stuffed when we were done. Full & satistifed which was fantastic. My husband ordered the spaghetti & said it was very good. He especially enjoyed the homemade sauce. I ordered the pesto dish & was very surprised. If you're... More

I have been here once before with my mom and so on this trip to Galena I took my mom and grandma. I had reservations, but our waitress was a little lacking in the customer service dept. She was a little detached, didn't explain menu items to us very well, didn't ask about what dressing we wanted on salad etc.... More

Knowing that I am very particular about Italian food, I should not have ordered the Eggplant Parmesan - I asked for it well done and the eggplant was still "chewy". The bread was good, though, as was the service.

Located in the center of Galena. Excellent gourmet cuisine. The fried green tomatoes were served smothered with mozzarella and a tasty marinara sauce. The mussels were exquisite. Historic building. Ulysses Grant had a leather shop at this location.
