Not what my wife and I expected. Walked in to an almost empty restaurant thinking we would get great service. After well over an hour we got our sub par entrees which were not impressive. Definitely a cool place but not worth my time or pocket book to visit again.

Very nice place. Nicely decorated. Good for casual visit or nice date night. Good German style food. Service was ok, could have been better. Nice menu choices including burgers and salad if you dont like German food. Not a very large selection of beer options. Overall, it was a good visit and I would go again. Prices are a bit... More

I asked my innkeeper here in Fredericksburg where I could find the best German food in town and he sent me to Friedhelms. It was a very good choice. They have an excellent menu, good service and good beer! My small meal of Bratwurst came with fresh-baked Schwarzbrot, an EXCELLENT fresh green salad and red cabbage. For good German food,... More

Three years we came here to eat and it was just okay. This year we came here to ring in the new year with a dinner hoping that it would be better; we were very disappointed. My wife ordered the prime rib and it didn't look like prime rib, also it was tough!! The rest of the food was disappointing.... More

Susan and I arrived just as the restaurant was opening on a Sunday morning at 11:00. Service was friendly and mostly on time, though there was a bit of a wait for our check. Dr. Sue had jaegerschnitzel (breaded cutlet with mushroom gravy) with red cabbage, and I had knockwurst with spätzle (potato pasta). Both entrées were tasty, and came... More

We thought we would try this for a change of pace. The 20 min wait was not worth it. The service was sub par. Not a restaurant I would recommend try another in town there are a few other German restaurants that have better service and food👎

We haven't eaten here for a couple of years, but went there for a special occasion, but will not go back. The food was OK, but the service was terrible. After waiting in the bar for 20 min. we were seated at a table where we just sat for 20 min. with no one offering to wait on us. We... More
