Special Night with daughters

We were visiting the area as it is half way from my daughter's college and our home. We wanted to treat her to keep her spirits up for the long haul of winter where we won't be able to see her. She chose the place. It has a lovely ambiance and the staff were very friendly. Even though it was... read more

One you first walk into restaurant we were greeted right away. (This was the only time that occurred) We were asked to go upstairs and hosted would take care of us. The upstairs room was kind of small and tables were very close together. When we arrived they were not very busy, maybe one or two tables occupied. The hosted... More

We ate at Fried Green Tomatoes while visiting Galena for our anniversary. The location was nice since it's right downtown and easy to find and the service was great! The food was good, but I didn't think it was as good as the price would lead you to expect it should be. I got the special which as a 4... More

I visited the original location many many years ago. It was fine, now in 2016, Fried Green Tomatoes is existing on a long gone decent reputation! I wasn't going to review it but if changes are needed-people should know. Everyone at our table had "blah" meals. They were: lasagna-one of the least appetizing I've ever had, the polenta cacciatore, and... More

We where very excited to have dinner at Fried Green Tomatoes. Maybe that was the problem. We had reservations and were seated early. Our waitress was friendly but never told us the nightly specials. We ordered the Fried Green Tomato appetizer and it was very good. I would go back for that. The bread and salad were also really good.... More

My boyfriend and I came here for a romantic Friday night dinner, and it didn't disappoint. Our friendly server was very knowledgeable of not only the menu, but of the local attractions as well. The Espresso Steak was outstanding. We also ordered the spaghetti and meatballs - which was good, but not great. Half price bottles of wine on Friday... More
