Upon arrival we were slightly disappointed at being seated upstairs as there were only two other tables with patrons. We would have preferred dining on the main level which was much more lively.

My husband and I chose Fried Green Tomatoes for our night out in Galena after much research and contemplation. We were very happy with our choice. The garlic bread before the meal was extremely good. Both of our meals, the pesto salmon and the chicken piccata, were delicious. The best part of our meal, however, was our server, Ruth. She... More

My husband and I visited Fried Green Tomatoes on a visit to Galena. We had a reservation and were seated immediately. We were told by a waiter that our waitress would be right with us. Ten minutes later the waiter came back and said there was a mix up and that he would be our waiter. We ordered the fried... More

Food and portions were excellent. Service also was very good and they helped us celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary. We had a dining certificate as part of our stay at LeFevre but we felt that the prices were what you would expect. The Fried Green Tomatoes were amazing, I want more already!

We went for a girls' lunch and the serving sizes were good - not too big. The fried green tomatoes were great - you definitely need to start with those! The flatbreads were good, as well as the steak martini. The atmosphere was a lot nicer than I anticipated and I really liked it - perfect for a girls' lunch.... More

Little bit upscale, very nice. My wife had the scallops - some of the best she's ever had with excellent risotto. I had the meatloaf, which was awesome. Service was great and fast. We had a great meal.
