Have eaten there a couple of times before in the past 20 years. It was great just after the movie came out. Then not so great the next time. This last time, my food was such that I probably won't go again Fried okra was not crunchy, very blah crust. My black eyed peas were good for the first couple... More

Finally got to go and so glad we did. Parking and getting out of car was like stepping into the movie. Even without the movie this would be a great spot to go back in time and chill. Café feels like going to lunch with my grandmother years ago. Service was good, friendly. When we ask several questions the server... More

I get excited about visiting cities where my favorite movies were filmed, and this is one of my favorites! Juliette Ga is in the middle of nowhere, but only about 15 miles from I-75, so it's easily accessible. The movie, Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe was filmed here in 1991. The restaurant is set up much like... More

We love the movie and were finally on the right route for a vacation to make a stop in here. Well worth it! Fun to see the movie sites and, of course, everything through the movie lens looks a little different than you picture it in your head. But the cafe is pretty much spot on. Food was pretty good...

We drove to Juliette on our way to Savannah just to dine at The Whistle Stop Cafe. Fried Green Tomatoes is one of my favorite movies and it felt like walking into the movie when we entered the restaurant. It's as if time stopped and you expected Ruth and Idgy to walk in. The food was very good, the staff... More

Apparently, this place is famous. Who knew? It just happened to be right on our route at a point where we were hungry. But the fried green tomatoes were a revelation. We’d had them before but never like this. The service was prompt and friendly – recommendations for sides went over very well, try the rutabaga – and the atmosphere... More

We visited it twice while staying in the area. Both meals were delicious and quick. Everything great. Fried okra was some of the best ever, collard greens were mmmmm good. The waitresses were so full of information and accommodating. Don't miss this if your in the area. Worth a visit.

It is as if the clocks froze decades ago. This street, with the iconic restaurant and shops, is still exactly like it was in the movie, Fried Green Tomatoes. You expect Iszzy and Ruth to walk around the counter and serve you. After this visit (which occurred unexpectedly as we were driving from the Jarrell Plantation to Atlanta and just... More

We have been to the Whistle Stop many times, any time on I-75 close to Juliette Georgia, we stop and have lunch. Bar B Q is always delicious. This time my wife decided to have a veggie plate consisting of green beans, pinto beans, and broccoli, all made with fresh veggies. I choose the Frank Bennett Bar B Q sandwich... More

My mother loved anything and everything about Fried Green Tomatoes so when my Dad and I had a chance to go yesterday, we went. We were the first two through the door yesterday morning and my Dad went straight back to the same table that he and mom last sat. I can tell you about how good the food was,... More
