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”
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”
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.
