I have been there a number of times and I've never been disappointed. The service is always very good and the food exceptional. You have to try the fried green tomatoes, they are a great appetizer. This was the first time my niece had been there and she really enjoyed it. We sat by the a window in front and my niece was curious about the horse across the street in the third story window. We asked the waitress about it and she told us that it's stored up there. It's a full size white horse that was used by a local to make saddles. It's been in the window for 40 years. So along with a great dinner we heard a story of some local history in Galena.
We came here for our anniversary dinner. Great food and service!! Every time we stay in Galena this is a for sure stop! Had so much fun Thursday night we came back Friday night! My husband and I enjoyed the mussels, pasta and fish. Also love the bread and salad dressing. Best part would have to be Marcos our bar tender. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a nice relaxing time with good fun
We plan a girls weekend every year in Galena, and Fried Green Tomatoes is always on our list. The menu is wonderful and the waitstaff is knowledgeable, friendly and professional. The food is incredible.
One of our favorite restaurants and love the veal parmasean with their to die for marinara sauce. Wed. Is wine day with $3 glasses of nice wine.
Excellent experience. Great food and staff was terrific. Menu includes several items that I look forward to having on future visits. Menu prices are reasonable based on the experience and quality of food. Definitely recommend!
Fried green tomato dish was not very special.
It had a lot of cheese.
Service from Molly was great...attentive and knowledgeable! Seafood flat bread was great as a starter and the crab cake salad was delicious...especially the mango dressing I believe. We were stuffed so we split the dry-rubbed pork ribeye for dinner. It was delicious! Chocolate dessert hit the spot. The wine list was small but well thought-out with prices very reasonable. Always a must stop in Galena!
i really enjoyed the atmosphere and food. service was good. i would definitely go back.
Ordered the seafood aglio(if that's correct), I could eat over and over again. So good!!
What a great place me and my wife had a great time there great food perfect customer service we will definitely be back.
When the waiter could not produce the wine we ordered by the bottle, 2015 Vintage, he gave us a 2011 Vintage of the same for the same price as the 2015. The right thing to do. All the meals were very good.
Had a great time @ Fried Green Tomatoes! I was pleasantly surprised by the depth of the wine list. Our server was fantastic. This was our first visit and we were led through the menu with some great descriptors provided. Everything from the Fried Green Tomatoes, through my Expresso rubbed filet to my better half's seafood pasta dish were delicious! Everyone on staff was welcoming and invested in our experience.
We always go to fried green tomatoes when we are in galena. The food and service are always great
All 4 of us in the group ordered something different and we all ate every bite of our delicious selections! Our server was helpful and attentive. We especially liked that it was a quiet restaurant. And we loved that the Wednesday night we were there (maybe it's every Wed?) a glass of wine was $3. We will definitely return the next time we're in Galena. We enjoyed several restaurants during our 2 night stay and this was our favorite.
Fried Green Tomatoes is probably the best restaurant in Galena!! However, this last time eating dinner there, the steaks were overcooked. We ordered them medium rare and they were medium, no pink center. I suspect they were previously frozen and thawed while cooking as the restaurant was closed the day before. It's hard to get a delicious steak when it's not thawed out beforehand.
We will still dine there but avoid Tuesdays or else make the waitress of aware of our previous situation. This was a first for us so we intend to support FGT!
People were very friendly. Food was quite good. Server could have been a bit more attentive, but my back was to the room so I could not see how many people she was responsible for. Recommended.
the service was great; and the food, we had pasta was very good
Great food and wonderful selection. Awesome cocktails too.
Main course came out too soon after salads. Salads actually came out a little late. Not the first time that the main course came out to soon after salads. Otherwise, the food was great, nice temperature, and the service was good except for timing.
Food, service and atmosphere was fantastic. Bartender was very welcoming and fun to chat with. Highly recommended for a special evening either for a couple or group of friends.
We read a number of good reviews about Fried Good Tomatoes in Galena. We were disappointed. The service was good, the food was mediocre.
The fried green tomatoes were covered in so much cheese, it was like eating fried cheese. The taste of the tomatoes was lost. We did not finish it.
The lobster and shrimp flatbread appetizer was delicious and the highlight of dinner. I order the special, Osso Bucco. The meat was tender and it was served on mashed potatoes. There was no rich broth or natural juices served with it. My husband had the mushroom kale ravioli. The pasta was cooked nicely but the mushroom flavor was missing. It lacked seasoning. 3/15/18
Great atmosphere and great food. We will definitely be back!
As usual our experience was fantastic. Service was exceptional. Staff were friendly and responsive. Blackened grouper special was beyond expectations. Very special place for us.
Every trip to Galena (from Chicago) we dine at Fried Green Tomatoes. The food and service are always excellent. This last time lived up to its standard. Our server was very accommodating and friendly. The food was so good. We had the Roasted Garlic and Brie appetizer, I could have ordered a second, so good! My husband had the filet which he loved. I had the Chilean Sea Bass grilled with tomatoes, artichokes and olives. It was outstanding, perfectly prepared! I don’t know why we dine anywhere else. Next trip we’ll probably eat there 3 of our 3 nights.
Great dinner. The Steak Martini appetizer was clever and delicious. Portions are plentiful, and the bread and salad was excellent. We would definitely dine there again.
We had a party of 7 and the staff was wonderful and accommodating for all our different requests! Thank you for a wonderful evening out with friends!
My wife and I enjoy this restaurant and have eaten there several times while making a weekend visit to Galena. We have never been disappointed in the food, which is our primary reason for returning. No doubt we will return to Fried Green Tomatoes in the future.
First time visiting in a few years, We will definitely be going back as the food was perfect, and the roasted garlic with brie cheese appetizer was very good as well. Our server was very punctual and friendly and welcomed us back .
There was a large group seated in the room with us that was very loud and ruined our experience. We weren't able to have a conversation. The service was very slow, but our waitress was sweet and trying her best. Food was delicious and will go back.
There were two large groups. They were sooo loud our server couldn’t even hear us or we her, so had to bend down by each of us just to hear. Management should have politely asked them to keep it down. But the two large parties were bringing in more money, that’s what really counts.
But food great service great noise level and ambiance terrible
Steak, salmon & wine was great! Our server was very attentive!!!
Our meal at Fried Green Tomatoes was excellent. We took our 3 children (all 12 and under) and they had a nice selection for the kids. My husband and I had the Salmon which was outstanding and two of the kids had the meatloaf - they cleaned their plate which tells you how good it was. Housemade Sangria was delightful.
We were in Galena for our anniversary. Our meal was delicious and the service was excellent! I would certainly recommend it!!!
My six oz. filet melted in my mouth. Our server, Regina, as well as her trainee, was professional, friendly, and helpful. Best dining experience in town.
Kori was the best waitress ever, she was also our waitress last year during our anniversary weekend too and was just as great and really made the experience the best it could possibly be

Excellent place to eat. Whenever we are in Galena we like dining at Fried Green Tomatoes.
The food was amazing. I had the special which was sirloin with stuffed shrimp and asparagus. It was so delicious. Our waitress was very friendly. The atmosphere was a great vibe with many people around us having a great time. I am definitely coming back here. Best place we ate at in galena.
Large place which accommodates large groups. We were a party of 9. Even though we made the reservation for 8 pm we ended up by string there much earlier around 7 pm. The restaurant was able to seat us at that time. Friendly service. Excellent food. The garlic melted Brie cheese is fantastic! I had the seafood pasta which was absolutely delicious. Same reviews for the pork is so bucco and the various steaks other members of our group had ordered. The place is true to the reviews!
We ate a good meal, had good service, and would eat here again. I really liked the mushroom and kale ravioli (vegan, but really good), but did not love the salmon or carbonara. Fried green tomato appetizer and the roasted garlic and brie appetizer were very good! Would have loved a lot more of the roasted garlic and brie! Our server was very polite and social, and another employee even went out of her way to take several pics of our group! Really nice people!
Great food and great service. Will definitely go back.
