Outdoor seating, next to park, with a good variety of small plates and large plates that you can share. Meat & veggie dishes, including seaweed salad and green curry stew are all delicious.

Staff not particularly attentive. Food (burger special) marginal. First customer of the day, so perhaps they were not geared up for the day. Had heard great things about this restaurant.

My family and I have eaten here twice over a one-year period. Both meals consisted of very good food, both in terms of taste, freshness, and quality. Excellent beers on tap and a very good desserts. Both times, we ate outdoors and were served by the owner/chief chef. He's a bit taciturn, but friendly enough, and his recommendations were spot-on.... More

This is a great place because they serve small plates so you can get several things and share. No reservations and a very popular place so get early or expect a wait (small place too).

We came down for FIBark 2014 and decided to come here because it didn't have a cover charge to enter the bar, like the next door bar did during the festival weekend. We sat down and ordered beers and had a great night. the mixed drink that one of my friends order was awful. I don't recall what the name... More

Being a local, I thought I would probably rate this higher, but to be honest the other night the Fritz didn't come through. I have frequented this establishment several times and usually find it a rating of 4. Most of the entrees served at our table were bland and sparse. My specialty hamburger was over cooked and dry. The location... More

Stopped by for lunch and was amazed at the sandwich choices: antelope rabbit sausage with arugula and pickeled beets, vegetarian with cucumbers, tomatoes, radiioccoh, ghost pepper relish and more. Good local beers and wines add to the offerings. Indoor and outdoor dining, located across from the park facing the Arkansas river.

We were about to give up on finding a restaurant that didn't feel like a dark bar when we came across Fritz. Though still in that dark wood decor, the room was larger than some others but more important there was a delightful court yard for dining. However, the real treat was the exceptional food. My husband had tilapia and... More

We stopped in because we heard the hamburgers were excellent and we weren't disappointed! Fries were excellent- both white and sweet potato. Attentive staff. Enjoyable atmosphere. Would go back again.
