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
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.
This is a nice Italian Restaraunt that offers a variety of dishes for every palate. Food was great, service was fast and attentive. Make a reservation. It is a must when deciding where to eat.
We were disappointed in a place we had heard good things about. Our waiter tried valiantly, but it just wasn’t his night—dropped our wine, was unsure of our order, was rushed, awkward, and harried. We’ve all had days like that...it just was a downer on our evening. Food was not flavorful and overall underwhelming. Lovely, family ambiance. Maybe it was an off night for all.
Our experience at fried green tomatoes was great. Our server Regina was amazing and everyone there was very welcoming!! We will definitely be back!
We enjoyed our day after Valentine's date very much. We had the mile high meat loaf and it didn't disappoint. Also enjoyed the scallops with risotto. Wished for more scallops tho. We will be back, it's a great place for casual dates with great ambience.
Fried Green Tomatoes has always been our favorite place to dine. The food is always great and the service the best. Fred always knows us and makes us feel appreciated. I would highly recommend Fried Green Tomatoes to everyone looking for a great restaurant.
Wonderful staff, the service was prompt and attentive to the customer needs. The food tasted excellent and was appealing on the plate. Overall a wonderful date and great place to eat.
Food was excellent as usual!! Unfortunately, service was horrible! It took more than 15 minutes for the waitress to even acknowledge us, although she walked by our table several times. Another waitress felt sorry for us and removed empty dishes and asked if we needed anything between the brief infrequent “visits” by our “waitress!” All in all, it ruined the mood for our “early Valentines Day” dinner!
Good wine list
Food was only mediocre. We had steaks. Service was excellent. The décor in this place is cold and uninviting. Needs redecorating.
We celebrated my 60th birthday at Fried Green Tomatoes on 1/27/1958. Not an intimate dining spot. They are known for their pasta and steaks. The choice for steaks were 4 oz. or 6 oz. filet mignon or a 20 oz. porter house. All meals come with a house salad and bread. The bread was very light and delicious...dipped in butter and sprinkled with parmesan cheese. The salad was tolerable. No choice of dressing. Everyone gets raspberry vinaigrette. Slow service. Harried wait staff. Delivered wrong drink at the very beginning. Filet was good as was the osso buco, but would not go back. For a more intimate experience, great food and outstanding service, head to Fritz and Frites down the street. Now that is 5-star!
Hands down Marco in the bar was awesome, so much so we came back for a second night in a row.
Food is good as is the wine list.
Molly was a fantastic server that explained the menu and was very attentive. The food was delicious and nice portions.
Food was good. Horrible service. There 45 min before we even got our salad.
It was a very nice dining experience. All 6 of us enjoyed our meals very much. Would recommend to all. Wonderful food choices. Slightly higher priced than other restaurants but the atmosphere and extras make it worth it.
We had dinner to celebrate with friends. Our server was fabulous..very attentive and knowledgeable of the menu.
Food was hot and served quickly. Great variety in the menu. Desserts choices were awesome. Highly recommend...food fabulous!!!
The food was amazing. I have the lobster ravioli every time I go there. The warm bread and oil is so good. Service was great and our waiter was super friendly. Always a great meal!
