“Wonderful Time and Great Food in compare to the nextby Restaurants”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

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 first night, we shared a plate of Pork Shank along with full salad, soup and dessert. The pork was cooked just right. The meat was falling off the bone right. The salad and soup were also wonderful. Unlike from the first night that the Log Cabin Restaurant tagged on a $6 on sharing, this restaurant did not tag any additional charges on our meals. We had the Chocolate Torte dessert. This was really homemade and it was delicious. Bread was also made in the restaurant and it was served warmed. I ordered my English black tea and there are various types of tea bag for my selection along with real honey for my tea. Unlike my first night's experience, this restaurant is well worth the visit.

Overall, we had a great time in the Fried Green Tomatoes restaurant and I would highly recommended this restaurant.

“Above and Beyond”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

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. Later that night, one of the young ladies at the restaurant called my cell phone to let me know that we had left our credit card there. She actually volunteered to drop it off at the Eagle Ridge lodge where we were staying. That is way above and beyond great customer service! I didn't get her name but would like to thank her for her kindness! You made our vacation. Can't thank her enough.

“Delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

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 taste. Would highly recommend for a quiet dinner in Galena.

“Delicious upscale”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014

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 checks. Very fine establishment.
