Great food, reasonable prices. Our waitress, unfortunately I don't remember her name, was very attentive. We had reservations for 6pm and when we got there it wasn't very busy, but bu the time we left it was very busy.

Our server was marvelous and the food was terrific. We love blue cheese olives in our martinis and FGT never fails to knock it out of the park in that department as well. Thank you all. Yum.

The tomatoes in the FGTs were indistinguishable. Impossible to tell with the breading, etc. salads and dressing very good. Spaghetti and meatballs were bland, needed seasoning and meatballs lacked texture.

The atmosphere and service were both excellent. The atmosphere was classy and warm. The hostess and waitress both were kind and greeted us with a welcoming smile. The waitress was knowledgeable with the menu and wine choices and guided us to super dinner selections. The three of us loved our meals! When I come back to Galena, going back to Fried Green Tomatoes is a must!

The service was excellent as was the food. We had the braised pork shank and lasagna. Both were prepared very well.
After asking if we were there for any special occasion they brought us a free tiramisu for our anniversary dinner.

Food was good and fairly priced. Service was very friendly and attentive. And, while when the restaurant was crowded it was noisey, if you were in the right area, you could still carry on a conversation. We look forward to returning on our next visit to Galena.

While visiting Galena we ate dinner at Fired Green Tomatoes! The steaks were awesome, tender and cooked to perfection. Our waitress was terrific, we did not want to be rushed. Drinks good too. The fried green tomatoes were done like eggplant parmesian, which was different for me.
We had a fantastic dinner here!

Just went to Fried Green Tomatoes for our Anniversary. It was a beautiful atmosphere that worked well for a quiet meal. Our service was wonderful and quite helpful. I am pregnant so I wanted a cocktail without any alcohol. The waitress requested a mango mojito and it was superb. We started with the beef and potatoes martini and then I had the shrimp ravioli special and my husband ordered the mile high meatloaf. We also received fresh, hot bread with oil and cheese and side salads. Everything was excellent. Unfortunately, neither of us had room for dessert but they looked very good as well.

We dined at Fried Green Tomatoes on a two-day trip to Galena. The meal and the wine were both sensational. One of us had filet mignon with shrimp and the other a delectable pork chop special. We were pleasantly surprised that they provided a tasty loaf of gluten-free bread, upon asking. This is a bit of slow dining so make sure you allow enough time. Location is superb, right in the heart of downtown Galena. All in all, a wonderful dinner.

Service and ambiance were great. Food was ok. The fresh bread, which really had a chance to shine ( most Italian restaurants hit it out of the ballpark), didn’t. Kind of bland,mealy Parmesan cheese mounded on top. And the Fried Green Tomatoes had marinara sauce... meh

We enjoyed the food (salmon and filet); the entree portions are large and they come with a big side salad and a chunk of nice warm bread. We didn't even eat it all and had no room for dessert (unfortunately). The service was cordial but very slow, and the room was noisy, making conversation a challenge. We would go there again, but preferably on a weeknight when it might be less busy.

Fried Green usually serves good food. However, my prime rib was tough and not a high quality of meat. Could not eat it. They
did not charge for the dish but made our experience less then pleasant.

As usual, it was excellent. Kat, our server, and Trevor took excellent care of us. We got our favorite table,
And the pace of the meal was perfect. The crab cake starter with four cakes is always good, my wife likes the lobster ravioli and I had the filet of beef with shrimp. Both of these are always excellent. We visit here a few times a year and we are never disappointed. We have no relationship with anyone associated with the restaurant and we received no compensation of any nature for submitting this review. Good food and good service deserves to be recognized.

I think the food was pretty good, but not worth the price. He got four tiny scallops and was charged $30. That was unacceptable. Most restaurants they are bigger and you get more than 4. The fried green tomatoes need more flavoring, very bland. Mostly cheese. Won’t order those again. For that reason it will be a very long time before we try Fried Green Tomatoes again. Unless you have an idea.
