Atmosphere was nice, wait staff was great! I had scallops over risotto, the scallops were very fishy tasting but the risotto was good.

My husband and I ate here for dinner during our trip to Galena for the weekend. Awesome service! My husband ate the Tuscan mac n cheese and I had the lasagna! Both of the dishes were delicious!

All of our food was delicious and I seriously would recommend a reservation. On Thursday nights they have $3 glasses of wine (all wine is $3 even the $9.50 a glass of wine).

I am always a bit concerned when so many say what to expect. However, Fried Green Tomatoes lived up to the hype! We had a party of 10, ordered the Fried Green Tomatoes, which all agreed were the best they had tasted. The sea bass was fantastic, lobster ravioli was wonderful and caprese was outstanding!

This is one to visit whenever you're in Galena. The unique specials are something to try. I'm not a sweet potato person but the pork ribeye with Apple glaze and mashed sweet potatoes with bacon was wonderful! Definitely would order again!

We of course had to try the Fried Green Tomatoes. We both were very impressed with the namesake. We weren't sure what to expect but were very pleased. My wife had a seafood pasta special which offered more than she could finish. I dined on the scallops. Both meals were excellent.

We returned to eat here because we enjoy the food selections so much. It is also an easy walk from our hotel, the DeSoto House. We love the appetizer "fried green tomatoes" that we have not found anywhere else. The food and service were very good.

Thank JohnandPam
