The 3 or 4 times I've gone in the last 3 years, it hasn't improved. Food was just average, prices a bit high, service I would call mediocre.

This place is the best! It started with the most wonderful hostess welcoming as in as she had known my friends and I for years and ended with full happy tummies. The people who work here helped me have an amazing dinner experience. Thank you, thank you!

At least that is my impression based on one visit. Went here on a Thursday night upon recommendation from our innkeeper and had not read any reviews. Had I done so, I would have steered clear of the mussels (see January 3 review). We started with the pate maison and it was wonderful. I thought this was going to be... More

I visited Fritz and Frites while sightseeing Galena with my mom and daughter, and it was the highlight of our trip! We were expecting a cute little bistro, but got so much more! When we walked in, I got a little nervous because everything looked so fancy and breakable (for my 3 year old). However, the waitress was quick to... More

We love going to this restaurant! The interior is charming and cozy and romantic with a European bistro feel. The food is always great. Have never been disappointed with our decision to eat here. Love the frites...could eat just a plateful of those and be happy! The service is professional and friendly.

My sisters and I had the pleasure of eating at this restaurant with their unique combination of flavors. The restaurant serves French and German food. The service was very good - although the night we went they were not busy. They had a very large variety of beers and wines to choose from. The menu had just the right amount... More

Perfect food, funny and intelligent staff, lots of beer assortments you can choose from, yum. Fritz has a killer schnitzel, amazing chowders and mouth watering steaks. It's not something you imagined, it's more!

I have eaten at this restaurant many times, sometimes lunch, sometimes dinner, no matter when, the food is excellent, and the staff top notch. Also held our women's club Christmas dinner here. The owner/chef worked with us to create a wonderful menu and opened special just for our group.

I been wanting to try this restaurant based on reviews on TripAdvisor. It was cute inside, very French Bistro with French Bistro music in the background. The waitress was warm and welcoming. It was midweek so it was pretty quiet. The beer selection was a little disappointing, was hoping for some good German beer! The bread was good and the... More

Had dinner with my loving wife and daughter. We all loved it. Started with the escargot and finished with the creme brule. Everything was superb even the service. I would highly recommend Fritz and Fritrs.
