Our first visit was generally quite good, so we returned. This time, service was slow and inattentive. The delay from order to service was excessive, even after reasonably allowing that each entree is prepared as you wait. And there was only one other party in the room! Food tends to be served warm, but not hot. Cold pasta isn't appealing.... More

Never had been to Galena before and would only be there for dinner. Opened TripAdvisor on the phone and looked for restaurant ratings. Since my wife had just been to Paris with my daughter, we picked Fritz and Frites. We really enjoyed the meal and the authentic Parisian feel of the room. Though we were early and the only customers,... More

Great German food. Fun to watch street foot traffic while dining. Attentive wait staff. Family groups at nearby tables seemed to be having a wonderful time.

This restaurant was recommended by a tour guide. We arrived for a late lunch. The food and wine were delicious, the restaurant was tastefully appointed, and the service was excellent. Unlike many restaurants today, the place was nice and quiet. I would strongly recommend this place to anyone visiting Galena.

Fritz and Frites is located at the end of the main drag through Galena. The dining room catches the ambience of a nice 1880's dining emporium. Food was very good. The service was excellent. The menu has items are infrequently found on the average dinig room menu. Check the online menu to see what I mean. If you are looking... More

Had dinner here recently and once again they were out of numerous items from the menu. No signs, no notes, not informed until we tried to order these items. The menu is not large so for them to be out of 4 or 5 items it greatly limits options. Had we know they were out of the pork chop and... More

We were not extremely hungry when we came for a late lunch as we had a huge breakfast at our b&b. But we were going to wine tasting and figured we should have some food in our stomachs. We stopped here and are glad we did! It wasnt very busy, which was fine. Our server was very nice and attentive.... More

After reading many of the reviews I was stoked to try this place out. Unfortunately my expectations must have been two high. I wasn't impressed with the Wienerschnitzel. Perhaps I should have ordered the chicken instead of the veal. It was a bit tough and not very flavorful. The red cabbage wasn't bad, but not great. This may be the... More
