Our girls' getaway in Galena finished up with a wonderful dinner at Fried Green Tomatoes. The location was perfect, decor great, and the menu was extensive, with something for everyone. Our waitress, Amanda, was exceptional. We'll definitely be back the next time we're in town.

our group visited this restaurant on a Thursday night. I had the pecan crusted salmon with maple syrup and roasted sweet potatoes. I loved it. The portion size is large. The French silk ice cream is a must for dessert.
