Very popular very crowded restaurant. Excellent food and service. Highly recommended. Great parmesan crusted bread is provided with dipping oil and house salad with yummy raspberry vinaigrette. Plank Walleye and Filet with shrimp fantastic. Make a reservation or you'll wait.

We entered thinking it was more of a down home place. It wasn't. It was fabulous. Everything was lovely from the linens on the table, the wonderful friendly staff, to the fabulous food. Yes, they had Fried Green Tomatoes, but I had Northern Italian and it melted in my mouth.

We just returned from a delicious dinner at Fried Green Tomatoes. We are a diverse group with two gluten free diners, one of whom is a vegetarian, and two meat eaters. We were all very, very happy with our meals. The polenta cacciatore was delicious as was the shrimp ravioli. Both are gluten free, which was a nice treat (as... More

Good crowd on Tuesday night. My group was upstairs with a limited, select menu. Service and food were both wonderful. Great place for friends, family or business.

My husband and I sat at the bar and had a fantastic bartender! She was super friendly and made great suggestions on the menu, ones that I will definitely go back for! The Fried Green Tomatoes were a perfect starter. I ordered the Mile High Meatloaf that was delicious, my husband the filet, that was grilled to his order. The... More

Wonderful atmosphere! Steaks were very good, could have used a little more seasoning but otherwise, perfect! Fired green tomatoes are very good! The house-made raspberry dressing was delicious and I bought 3 bottles to take home! Desserts were great and drinks were spot on. A must if your in the Galena area!

We had dinner there on a Wednesday evening & while they were busy we didn't have to wait for a table. Service was attentive. I had the chicken piccata & my wife had the polenta entree, both of which were well presented & tasty. The chicken was tender and the sauce was nicely balanced & not over powering the chicken....

I am a local and had really not been to Fried Green Tomatoes for quite a while. But a group of friends were in town and Fried Green was the choice. The menu variety is excellent. Yes, fried green tomatoes are included on the menu. A good price range for a tourist community. It was a Thursday evening and our... More
