We went when NFL play-offs were taking place. All was quiet and we were the 1st to arrive. I had read enough reviews to mot be worried & happy that we would receive great service. And we were not disappointed. Since we have 3 young children, we were a little worried about food options...no need. My youngest had fresh Mac... More

We went in New Year's Eve so there was a limited menu. My friends had the lamb shank and the short rib; both meals were very good and a good value. I had the the scallops with a curry leek sauce but there wasn't anything else on the plate; very disappointing. Even though it was busy our service was excellent.... More

The food here is so good. It tastes just like my grandma's traditional cooking. It's super small so I would reccomend a reservation. Because it is so small it takes a while to dine which is different from our go go lifestyle but it's a welcomed change.

Fritz and Frites is one of our very favorite restaurants. The food is excellent, the wine choices are lovely, the service is very pleasant, and we love the decor. A taste of France right here in Illinois.

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.
