SteakHad a delicious meal! Would recommend the filet, it was amazing. The chocolate cake was delicious too.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a Winner!Living locally, we are fortunate to experience dining at Fried Green Tomatoes quite often, and it always keeps us coming back for more! The menu offers both small plates and exciting entrees, with most interesting starters (including its signature appetizer, Fried Green Tomatoes). On special holiday occasions, it offers a fabulous brunch buffet on Sundays which includes made-to-order omelets and carved prime rib--with sides of fresh salmon and shrimp, plus countless salads and more.
This is the restaurant that we recommend and/or to which we take visitors, as it's a "must" in the charming town of Galena. The building itself has quite a history which dates back to the days when Ulysses S. Grant lived in Galena.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways GreatWe've eaten there numerous times and always had a wonderful experience.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat dining experienceWonderful evening.

Apetizers were as expected, entrees were great. My Fillet was slightly under-done from the "medium" that I ordered, but I didn't mind a bit. The creme brulee capped it all off nicely.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMSally was an awesome serverSally was an awesome server & the food was phenomenal!

Both the food and ambiance were amazing! I had the 4oz filet done medium and the shrimp as my main course. It was truly outstanding. The salad came out in a big bowl that was shared by everyone at the table. It was very fresh and the raspberry vinegerette dressing was delicious as was the bread which accompanied it. I plan on going back to Fried Green Tomatoes in June on a girls weekend I am planning. Do make reservations if you plan on eating here because they were crowded. I promise you will not be disappointed with the food, service or the ambiance here.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMBetter than tourist foodFood was very good. Service was great.
