Everything was delicious!!!
Things were off to a rocky start when our waitress went to the table next to us 4 times, before even acknowledging us. Took myself to the bar and ordered us our drinks. After that our waitress profusely apologized and the restaurant took care of our drinks. Such a nice gesture! Food was DELICIOUS! Will be bsck
We were seated immediately at our reservation time. The waitress was prompt and courteous, and the food was very good. We were very satisfied with the entire experience.
The staff was very friendly. We were waited on quickly, and our dinner came out in a timely fashion. I got the 4oz filet with 4 shrimp, and it was the best filet I have ever had. My husband got the Lasagna, and of course he bragged on that. We will be back.
I absolutely love this restaurant! The physical building and facility are awesome, and the staff is great from the hostess to the servers to the bus staff. But the food is incredible! Of course we ordered the fried green tomatoes for an appetizer and they were great. But, the entrees were outstanding! The cedar plank walleye was so good and the New York strip special for the day was very tasty. I can't say enough for this place and I can't wait to go back to try something new.
Incredible food and the service was exceptional! A MUST if you are in the area! Make reservations, they fill up fast and for very good reason!!
One of my favorite places to eat when I come for the weekend to galena. Absolutely delicious! Wonderful service and great atmosphere!
As expected, the food and service was exceptional. Fried Green Tomatoes is always our go-to dining place when we’re in Galena. Another wonderful culinary experience!
Great service and the food is outstanding. Staff were all amazing.
We had made a reservation for the covered patio and ended up being the only customers out there. Our server was excellent - personable and welcoming, knowledgeable about the menu and excellent at being attentive without being intrusive. The cedar plank walleye was excellent and beautifully presented as was the spicy seafood pasta. We had the opportunity to meet Fred the owner who came out to check in with us and we really enjoyed chatting with him. We always visit Fried Green Tomatoes when we’re in town and will continue to do so.
All of our entrees were delicious! I had the Chilean Sea Bass which was outstanding!
Amazing! Both food and service! Bailey did an awesome job!
Slightly overpriced in my opinion, but solid food and really good service.
Everything was wonderful!!!
The service was very attentive and the atmosphere was great. Felt like I was in Italy. The food was decent but not great —quite frankly I believe that they use cooked shrimp and just boil them instead of cooking with raw shrimp. We had a shrimp and filet mignon dinner and the shrimp had zero flavor. There was no seasoning no olive oil nothing. Almost like they had boiled them in water. The steak was very tender. The lasagne was decent but not great. I suppose for a small country town like Galena, the restaurant was above average, but when I compare it to the restaurants in Chicago and suburbs I would say it’s just average Italian food. It probably is one of the better Italian restaurants within an hour of Galena. The lasagna could’ve been a little bit more crispy on top, like baked in the oven but it was just more soggy.
We had a fabulous experience at the restaurant! The food was so good and the service was wonderful. Can’t wait to go back to try some more items on their menu!
Wonderful lasagna and lobster ravioli. Can still taste the delicious fresh bread and olive oil. Delicious chocolate cake. Great service. Definitely recommend!
Phenomenal choice. We're so happy we were told about Fried Green Tomatoes!
Delicious food, attentive staff, prompt service! Highly recommend!
Fantastic food and service. My wife is gluten free and the staff worked to ensure that she had tasty options to choose from. My only criticism is that the drinks were "meh". Both drinks were bland and felt watered down. That being said, we went there to dine and not imbibe so the former definitely outweighed the latter.
We will definitely return should we once again find ourselves in Galina.
We took the kids to our special place and they were thrilled. The service, food and location were awesome.
The food was excellent and the service was great! Highly recommend it and will definitely eat here again.
The food was excellent. I always get the lobster ravioli. My husband had the Jack Daniels Porterhouse and it was cooked perfectly. Our waitress was wonderful!
The food and service at Fried Green was excellent as usual. This place is a gem! Our server was educated on the menu as well as the drinks and wine list. The sea bass was delicious and had just the right amount of crisp. The scallops were light and excellent as well. Even the children’s items (pizza, spaghetti and meatballs) were loved by our kids.
Our server was awesome, everything we ordered was amazing!
You must experience Fried Green Tomatoes restaurant. Service and food was great. Had the crab cakes as an appetizer, so good. Had the shrimp diavolo so so good.
Best experience for dinner in Galena. Filet cooked and flavored perfect. My wife enjoyed the Crab cake salad
Service was top notch. Definitely would recommend and will be our go to place when we visit again. Ohhhhhh yeah don’t forget the fried green tomatoes. Must try
The food was amazing and service was great, too! We loved the ambiance and would definitely return when we’re in the area.
Amazing food and exceptional service by Lindsey! Thank you and we will be back!
Love this place! I make sure to go every time I can. Make a reservation!
Always top-notch service, food, drinks, and experience at Fried Green Tomatoes. Can't recommend it highly enough!
The food was delicious, a very nice selection of menu items to choose from. Our server, Alyssa, did a great job and was very nice. We will definitely return!
The food was excellent but our server was horrible from not knowing when someone orders a bottle of wine they are the ones to try it not there partner to other Little things Plus the menu on Yelp had prices and when you get to the restaurant there 20% more like a bait and switch
We have been eating here off and on since 2006. The menu has gotten better over the years with more variety. Not mainly pasta anymore, which suits us just fine. We like it even more than we did 15 years ago. Vanessa, our server, was awesome. Yay for Wine Wednesday!
We had a wonderful time at Fried Green Tomatoes! The food was to die for and the service was friendly and attentive.
Amazing staff and unbelievable food ! Will be coming back 100% steak martini is astounding! The filets are so tender and the fried green tomatoes are fantastic ! The creme brûlée was creamy and addicting ! Love this place ! Great cocktails too!
Food and service was great!
Our server molly was great. The bread here is unbelievable and they’re very generous with it. Pork osso bucco was delicious.
Was a great experience. Aly our waitress was awesome. Took care of my little one, and was great time spent.
It was an absolutely amazing dining experience. The waitstaff was incredibly gracious and friendly. I did not feel rushed through our evening and each element of our meal was remarkable. I decided on the expresso steak. It was probably the best, most tender filet I’ve ever had-melt in your mouth good The flavor was incredible! My husband had the filet and shrimp and also enjoyed his meal.
The building was not the quietest. However, considering it is an old brick historical building with multiple patrons I anticipated the noise level. We took a road trip and stayed in Galena overnight and it was the perfect end to our day!
