This place is so quaint and cozy. Great date restaurant. The menu is small but the selections are good. There is a relaxed and casual pace here so you never feel hurried. The wine selection is good. I have eaten breakfast lunch and dinner here and never been disappointed. Since it sits at the north end of town I think... More

The food is TO DIE for! So good! We went for a birthday girls trip-took my sister-and it was absolutely perfect for us. We each got something different so we could each taste everything, and each dish was perfectly cooked! My personal favorite was the Rouladen, but if you don't like pickles don't get it (I ended up with my... More

This is definitely a place to go for foodies or people that are looking for something different than the typical dining experience. The food was exquisite and the service was absolutely stellar. Definitely would recommend it!

We had a great night out at Fritz and Frites on a busy February weekend night. Staff was amazing. Got our toddler to sit in her high chair, when we can't even do that most nights. Got her all set-up with crayons, and had her meal out in a matter of minutes. There was one point in the evening when... More

We dined on one of the worst nights in December. We were treated well from the moment we walked in the door which was opened for us by a staff member. We were seated immediately since we were only one of two couples in the restaurant. We started with Pomme Frites. What a treat. A large plate of thin fries.Wonderful.... More

Amazing french and german food. Everything we've tried is fantastic. The ambiance is very romantic and the restaurant is small, so make a reservation. It's a wonderful dining experience. I highly recommend it.

Wife and I had dinner and I ordered the Rindsrouladen. Without question the driest piece of meat I have attempted to eat in my life. The table next to us had the same dish and said it was great so maybe I got the leftovers from the previous day. Everything else was first class. I'll try Fritz again but likely... More

I had Bookbinder soup, Beef Bourguignon, French bread (yummy) and brie with apples. Everything was terrific. I did not like the brie, not because it was not good..it was good. I just decided that I do not like mushy, stringy cheese.

Reserve early! This French-German restaurant has the atmosphere l'amour perfect for proposals. We had a women's weekend and saved this spot for last. Duck pate tasted better than braunschweiger, and the split pea soup was savory beyond measure. The table ordered schnitzel, sauerbraten, and rolladen as entrees. I had the sauerbraten, which was expertly marinated and slow-cooked for days. Sisters... More
