Good food, friendly wait staff, willingly divided an order between 2 of us. Easy to make a reservation, so no wait.

Tomato Caprese salad was very good. My wife had the crab salad with goat cheese, she did enjoy but very little goat cheese was in salad. Fried green tomatoes are a must have, they were excellent and a good portion . We also stopped here...More

This was my wife's favorite meal in Galena. She had the scallops and risotto. It was decadent! Our waitress was excellent. The bread is a round loaf of italian bread, dipped in melted butter and covered with parmesan! You will love it.

The food is good but not extraordinary but like everything else in Galena you pay a little more than you should. Service was good.

Have been at Fried Green Tomatoes many times. Service was a little off (no intro, no specials, very low verbal communication from server). The food was FANTASTIC! Filet with shrimp, wine pairing, etc. Will definitely be back, just thought it was a little off this...More

Interesting space, good service and adequate food. Nothing special, but if you are in Galena and looking for a decent place downtown, this will fill the bill.

I know you can make them over the phone. They do not open until 4PM. You might want to check "Open Table" for reservations. I think you will really enjoy yourself. Bon Appetit"
