My wife and I ate dinner here and were pleased with the food, atmosphere, and service. The bill was not too high considering the quality and portions we received. I had the sauerbraten and wife had a pork schnitzel. Both very filling and tasty. I also had the onion soup, which was close to the best I've ever tasted. They... More

Great place for an upscale lunch and a glass of wine but still affordable! Food was very good, service was great, the atmosphere is cozy, perfect for conversation. German and French...the best of both worlds right in Galena.

Went there for lunch with a friend and it was super delicious and the service was great! Tim was very friendly and accommodating. I had the fig and goat cheese sandwich and it was amazing! My friend had the special which was a salmon sandwich that she raved about. We both cleaned our plates. The portion size was perfect and... More

Loved the food, comfortable atmosphere, and talking with our waiter! We enjoyed it so much we ate there twice in one day!

I dined at this restaurant twice last weekend while in the Galena area. The sausage dish was comparable to food served at fine restaurants in Germany. The prune dessert was spectacular--hardly something one normally says about prunes. However, these were soaked in armagnac and served with a dollop of ice cream. The wine list was very nice. This is a... More

We stumbled on Fritz and Frites by accident after a morning of sight seeing in Galena. Would not have known it was there except we found a parking spot right in front of the bistro. On entering, it had the feel of bistros we had visited in Paris. Menu was not extensive but it was well thought out. Potato leak... More

We were told that this was one of the best restaurants in Galena. The wine suggestion was excellent, as was the beer. Service was excellent. The escargot was fabulous; I ordered the cheese plate and was a bit disappointed at the "less than appropriate amount" that was on the plate for the amount that was charged. The onion soup was...

Menu had a wonderful selection of French and German cuisine. Service was excellent. Jeanette offered us tastes of both the dishes and wines before we maid our final selections. Warm and cozy French decor. A blend of French and German done right. Will make a point of returning to this restaurant.

We were recommended this restaurant by a local that comes here often for lunch and we were not disappointed. We were fortunate that there were tables open when we arrived and we got seated immediately. The service was a tad slower but I think they were understaffed - not sure if that was temporary or a continuous issue. The food... More

The ambiance was cozy and wine and beer options were good. I had an amazing cassoulet! There was rabbit sausage and duck confit on it. So, so delicious and filling! Another member of my group had a tasty steak salad. But, two people in my group had the steak frites, and both ordered medium rare. One came medium, and the... More
