The wife and I stopped in here for lunch. We split the fried green tomatoes and a flatbread. Both were delicious. The dinner menu looked a little pricey, but the food is worth it. Great service as well.

Food and service were excellent. Would definitely go again. Best filet I've ever had. The pancetta and sweet pea risotto was great.

Sorry but everyone said this was a great place for dinner but we didn't enjoy our meal. The service was fine. But when my I made the error of ordering a very spicy pasta with seafood and couldn't eat it, my waiter asked if it was too spicy and I said yes. That was the end of it. At the... More

Service is good, and the decor is slightly more formal than average, though not enough to need nicer clothes. Prices are a little higher, but then the menu is higher-end too. Food was delicious and we had no complaints.

This restaurant was okay. My daughter really wanted to try the fried green tomatoes, so we did, and the dish was okay. I embarrassed myself by choking on an enormous chunk of nearly-cracked pepper which sat, in wait, atop my salad. The decor was really quite fascinating as it looked like it had been in a burnt-out church with huge,... More

My daughter and I were very pleased with our experience at Fried Green Tomatoes. Our server, Kevin, was responsive and pleasant. We tried the fried green tomatoes appetizer and found them to be quite tasty. Our salads were fresh with a lovely raspberry vinaigrette and the loaf of house bread was warm and tasty. I had the filet mignon with... More

Had an enjoyable evening of drinks and dining at Fried Green Tomatoes. Don't miss Marcos at the bar. He's a hoot. Dinner was very good. Had the veal parm which was very good. The sauce was okay but that might be my taste. Veal was perfect. Wife had the lemon shrimp ravioli, loved the dish.
