My husband and I spent the weekend in Galena for our friends wedding. The rehearsal dinner was at Fried Green tomatoes. The staff did a wonderful job and they even customized a menu for the bride and groom with their photo on it. The steak and the salmon were both cooked perfect. Do not skip dessert here it was just the best!!

Dinner on Monday was on of the best meals we have eaten out in a long time. The drinks were priced correctly the entrees were served with soup, salad, and bread all included. The server I believe her name was Kelly was nice, smiled and accommodated our special requests. Great Italian restaurant.

Great place for dinner, very romantic. Servers were very good and knew the menu well. Nice menu mix they have everything from duck to chicken to lamb. Good food for the value you pay, dinner portions are very large so you may want to skip the Fried Green Tomatoes appetizer as it is very filling. Nice wine list and full bar. Best in Galena, will be back soon.

Fried Green Tomatoes is Galena is beautiful restaurant in downtown. They have large windows in the main dining room and wonderful real rock walls. Their staff is very well trained and their wine list along with liquor selection is top notch. The dinner menu changes seasonally, my husband had the duck which was done in a raspberry sauce and I had the pork osso buco with sweet potatoes which was fall off the bone good! This is our favorite restaurant in Galena because their food is homemade and they have a great staff.

Fried Green is a great place for your birthday or anniversary. Coming during the week is better and if you come on the weekends a reservation is a must, but they do have valet parking.

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary at Fried Green Tomatoes a few years back when it was located in the countryside and had such a lovely evening we wondered if they could match it at their new in-town location. We needn??t have worried. We returned for another anniversary dinner recently and found the experience even better!

We couldn??t pass up their signature tomatoes but had heard the crab cakes were outstanding, so we shared both appetizers and loved them. My husband ordered the falling-off-the-bones tender Pork Osso Buco (outstanding!) and I ordered the Alaskan Halibut, topped with artichokes and tomatoes in a wine sauce (wonderful!).

FGT has such a great wine list that it was difficult deciding which wine to order. We settled on a bottle of the Sanford Central Coast Pinot Noir, which paired beautifully with both the pork and the fish. Our waiter was well-versed on the wine selections and a great help.

Although we were both stuffed, we couldn??t leave without ordering dessert, so we shared a velvety-smooth Crme Brulee?a perfectly sweet ending to a romantic dinner that met our expectations superbly.

The restaurant is set in a great historic building and the restaurant ambience is excellent. Combine that with some delicious Italian food and you have great value. The service is great and the prices are reasonable as well.

The food, service and value is average. We were impressed with the ambience and upon arriving we were able to hear one of the singing waiters. Their website says that the waiters accept requests and to let the restaurant know 2 weeks in advance. My husband and I celebrated our anniversary in Galena this past weekend. We requested our wedding song be sang about 2 months ago. None of the wait staff including the host acknowledged our anniversary. On our way out, I asked the host if they had received our request. He showed me the request on his computer screen and just shrugged. This is an ok restaurant to dine in if you are visiting Galena, however, I wouldn't go back there to celebrate another happy occasion.

Pros: Good Parking, Not Crowded, Good Wine Selection

Cons: Overpriced

It really was such a fun dinner.
We of COURSE started with the fried green tomatoes, and then the other courses followed.
The service was exemplary, the food wonderful, the portions fantastic, and the entire experience was not just a meal, but a fun night out.

Even though this is considered an Italian restaurant, their steaks are
wonderful and a great value. We were so impressed and happily
surprised with all aspects of this restaurant. Nice new location right
in town of Galena, too!

We thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of Fried Green Tomatoes. The soup, salad and entrees were just perfect. I had the broth based seafood pasta my first visit and the the cream based seafood pasta the second time. Both were delicious and the seafood really tasted so fresh and was well prepared. I highly recommend Fried Green Tomatoes and suggest reservations for the weekend.
