This place fills up so if you're coming on a weekend, make sure to get a reservation in. The food was good. I would have given it 5 stars but the service was tad slow and the water tasted strange. But other than that, it was great and I would return. btw, I ordered the pork shank and my boyfriend... More

We visited on Valentine's Day while on holiday in Galena. Kevin, our server, was excellent and attentive. We enjoyed our dinner and experience very much. We would go back again if given the chance.

My Wife and I decided to eat at Fried Green Tomatoes and had a great time. I ordered the veal, and she ordered the Tuscan Mac and Cheese.

Our entrees were very good and since it was Friday, bottles of wine were half price! I'm glad we made a reservation as it was quite busy.

Late reservation, got seated immediately. Friendly staff, good drinks, excellent salad and bread to start. Scallops and lobster risotto for me, prime rib and garlic mashed potatoes for my husband. A little more done than he likes his prime rib, but flavor was good. Not sure if there was a choice on cook-wasn't asked when he ordered. Perhaps that was... More

This looked like a good place to eat but we had planned on going elsewhere. So we sat at the bar and had French martini's. Nice decor, nice bartender, great drink. Could use something more than pretzels for munching??

Lasagna, garlic and spinach tortellini were both fabulous. Marscapone lemon cake and tiramisu are more than worth saving room for. Fridays are half-price wine bottles night so plan ahead. Chardonnay and Chateau St Michelin Riesling were delightfully light.
