Had an amazing dinner here. The service was impeccable, the food was delicious and the drinks were fantastic! We had such a yummy meal. The caprese bread was so good. The lobster ravioli was delicious, the fresh bread was warm and so good and the desserts. I could've eaten more!!!

This was our 2nd trip to Galena. Tried this place again and very good food. Warning though, if you order steak and a "side of shrimp", just know you'll be paying $8 (or whatever it was) for 2 measly sized Shrimp. My husband had a Steak which he said was was pretty fatty and I had Chicken Piccata which that... More

After several trips over the years to Galena, my wife and I finally decided to eat here. The restaurant sits on Main St in downtown Galena. The inside was nice with a great bar area. The drinks were fairly priced. We had a table by the window, which was nice and the service was very good. We started off with... More

This restaurant was recommended by several - and I was a little disappointed. The fried green tomatoes was delicious with the twist of the marinara sauce. I ordered the Chicken Marsala and was disappointed - wasn't what I was expecting at all. The sauce had no flavor and few capers were added to the dish. My boyfriend had the cedar... More

When we were married many years ago, this place was located in the country and the food was off the charts. Since they went main stream with their move to Main Street we have found the results to be a bit uneven. HOWEVER, our meal this weekend was truly one of the best we’ve ever had in Galena. Not sure...

The owners of Aldrich House Bed and Breakfast recommended Fried Green Tomatoes to us, and they did not let us down! The fried green tomatoes appetizer was so delicious. I grew up eating fried green tomatoes from my Mom's garden. They put an Italian spin on theirs, and it did not disappoint. My husband and I both had the filet,... More

We had a delightful meal here with excellent service. Walleye pike was served on a plank and was mouth watering good. The fried green tomatoes had a bit much marinara sauce for this southern boy, but that fish was outstanding. On Wednesdays house wine by the glass is $3.

Fried Green Tomatoes staff helped us celebrate our anniversary by giving us a special table and excellent service. The food was terrific - we loved the Salmon and Filet with crab special. Of course the fried green tomatoes were super!

Awesome service. Our waiter was excellent. Good was so, so. Fried green tomatoes were more cheese than anything else - barely tasted the tomato. The feature steak was great done to order. Chicken was okay.
