Sitting outside, we had a relaxing meal of small plates and wine. The wine by the glass list is varied and what we ordered was very good. The grilled asparagus with prosciutto, the brown butter Brussels sprouts, the beet salad and the bone marrow plate were all extremely good. This was our third time there and the food and service...

We stopped in on our way to Denver from Durango. The atmosphere was boring and warm. No fresh air. The back door was open and flies were coming in and out. The place has potential. The menu was simple. We had the burger of the day and the chicken/Brie Sandwich. Both were delicious! Bread on both the burger and sandwich... More

Salida is a fun place to visit, and there is a lot to do beside its Arkansas River. If you get hungry, you can hit The Fritz, a small joint on the riverside. While I found my portion size to be just right, my wife couldn't eat nearly all of hers. Service was quick and the wait staff was friendly.... More

We met some friends here for drinks at the bar and had a great time. The atmosphere was trendy, the drinks were great and our bartender was excellent. Unfortunately we had already eaten dinner and didn't get to try the food, but by the looks of the plates coming out, it looked awesome. We will definitely have to try the... More

Unlike some previous reviewers, my wife and I loved this place. In fact we ate here twice. Others complained about the food but we thought it was very good. Others complained about the wait staff but both times our waiter was friendly and attentive. We loved the dog who lives upstairs who sits on the wall of the outside eating... More

Although the menu is somewhat limited, all of the selections are very tasty. The inside is fairly small but there is a sizeable patio where dogs are allowed. The service was a little slow considering we ate a late lunch on a rainy day and we were the only people outside (there was one other group finishing up inside). The... More

This place was a perfect end to a 2 day extreme rafting trip on Royal Gorge and Numbers. We rafted in 1900cfs and were exhausted! We were seated outside right away. It's a good relaxed area across the street from the rec center. The atmosphere is relaxed but lively with good bubbly conversation around you. The service is good and... More

We are a late lunch at The Fritz and enjoyed ourselves. The lunch menu was simple, but hearty. I especially liked the prosciutto and pear sandwich. My side of sweet potato fries "sweets" was great! Our server was helpful and the interior is rustic and artsy. We come here every time we're in town.

Stopped here because of the tapas style menu. We sat at the bar and had a great dinner. I had the prosciutto sandwich which was great. My son had the burger. It was served rare and he was not asked how he wanted it cooked. Probably just am oversight as they were busy and people were waiting. I would recommend... More

Salida’s summer brew fest and annual art festival had attracted big crowds that filled restaurants over the weekend. By Sunday evening, the town was much quieter as we looked for a place to have dinner. The Fritz appeared fairly busy, but much calmer than during the two previous days. The inside dining area and bar had a fair number of... More
