    Our server, Madison, was absolutely wonderful! I couldn’t make up my mind between several dishes and she was very knowledgeable about each dish and really helped me make up my mind. Our water glasses were never more than half empty and she was super attentive to our table. The food was delicious and flavorful!! That garlic bread was to die for. I would definitely recommend Fried Green Tomatoes to anyone!

    The entire staff was professional and efficient. Amanda deserves special recognition for her quick response to a broken wine glass that resulted in an entire table reset while never missing a beat yet maintaining a sense of humor. Food and service were exceptional! We'll be back!

    The food was really good. We had the fried green tomatoes which were great and then split the meatloaf. It was plenty of food and was very good. It was a slice of cornbread with a slice of meatloaf, topped with mashed potatoes and fried onions. We both loved it and left very satisfied.

    We have been here numerous times and it never disappoints. We had a fabulous server (Amanda) on this visit who was efficient while being kind and personable. The Blackberry Pork Rib Eye and the Filet Mignon special were delicious. We had no idea that the Luminaria Fest was going on when we booked our Galena stay. But given that, we were still seated at the time of our reservations. We couldn't be happier and look forward to our next visit.

    The food is always good at Fried Green Tomatoes, but just short of outstanding. The ambiance is very pleasant and reasonably quiet so you can easily hear others at your table. The service was good, but because they were so busy on a Friday in December the servers had some slight trouble keeping up. But overall it was a very nice experience.
