We asked the waitress about two different entrees, which one she thought was better and she recommended the Spagetti and Meatballs. We were not disappointed. I would definitely have it again. My husband ordered the meatloaf.

Although lovely inside, the food was average and, for that reason, over priced. My husband had the lasagna and the sauce was watery with little seasoning and sparse cheese. As for the fried green tomatoes, nothing special as the tomatoes were rather tasteless....have had a thousand times better at many other places. Perhaps we just ordered the wrong thing. Service...

Service was great. You won't go wrong with the Pasta or Porterhouse steak. FYI - place is much bigger that it appears. Don't be deterred if it looks full from the street.

My friends and I came here on a Saturday night after Little Tokyo gave away all their large tables in spite of us having made a reservation several weeks prior. Friend Green Tomatoes was able to get us a table for 8 and seated us within 5 minutes. Our server was absolutely wonderful. The menu had good options and everything... More

My wife and I ate here Saturday night, July 23rd. We came in about 30 minutes before our 6:30 reservation because it looked like rain was coming in and we were walking around Galena. Got seated right away upstairs and had very good and attentive service. I think our waitress was Monica and she was very nice and friendly. I... More

The entire menu is great. Good atmosphere and service. Street parking in front sometimes hard to find a spot.

This may sound like a no brainer, but get the fried green tomatoes. Great way to start the meal, good food to follow. We had awesome service and delicious food. We were originally going to try a restaurant nearby but it smelled really nasty inside so we kept walking. We found this, walked in and were glad we did.

I choose this place because of all the good reviews. I was sadly disappointed. Staff was nice enough. The food was just ok, nothing that would make me come back. The 3 of us had 3 different ravioli dishes, all good but not all that special and for the prices they should be special. The bread was just ok. I... More
