Nice bar style restaurant with outside patio

The small plates (tapas) are nicely presented and the taste is superb. The choice for both small and large plates is good. There is a decent selection of drinks. Our server was attentive but not too much. This restaurant is not cheap, but that is because the food is excellent.

A friendly, laid back place. Good food and drinks, nice outdoor patio, pleasant servers. Not the biggest menu, but it covers the basis. Loved the mussels.

The atmosphere is bland, the service is somewhat rushed and the food is fairly average. We had the special which was mussels topped with french fries and marinated in about a pint of what looked like dishwater. The mussels tasted close to or past their sell-by date and as you worked your way through them, you got a clearer view... More

I really had no expectation of The Fritz but I was very pleasantly surprised. We had a succulent pot stickers, an eggplant concoction for an appetizer, and the Fritz steak with sweet potatoes fries. We were blown away. I also acquired a new drink fetish - Stormy Weather

After reading a number of reviews we were excited to check this place out. When we arrived we were told that they were short staffed. The staff was crabby and it seemed a bit disorganized. The food was just OK.

We barely got into The Fritz on a Tuesday night, which tells you how popular it is with both the locals and the tourists. The Fritz is in a charming brick building in old town Salida, close to the Arkansas River. They serve tapas, small plates, and a few large plate items, along with lots of local beers and a... More

Been coming to Salida for decades. Worked in the industry. NEVER been treated so RUDELY by staff, including the owner. Bad on them. Salida is better than them.

We didn't expect much by the look of this place, but once inside it is nice. It looks more like a bar than a restaurant, but the food is way above bar food. The chicken & brie sandwich was very interesting. I loved it. The prices are very reasonable for what you get. Service was friendly. I'd go back for... More

We have been coming here for years and absolutely love it. First off, the food is fantastic. We have loved everything we have tried. The mac and cheese, amazing. The truffle fries, amazing. Their stuffed pepper, my favorite. Today, I had a turkey prosciutto sandwich that was fantastic. It was filled with greens, meat, and cheese, and was served on... More

Very unique menu. We split the porcini mushroom ravioli and the sesame pork potstickers with mint pesto. Nice selection from the full bar. Great food and service. A little warm sitting inside. A little too windy to sit outside.
