I come to Longview about once a month and this was a recommendation from a local so I had high hopes. Finding Italian in Longview is a challenge but I will be back here. I sat at the bar which is fine since I was alone and it was busy even on a Tuesday. The bartender was also covering tables... read more

We had mixed reviews on the food. The stew wasn't anything great, but the crab manicotti was good. The bread and garlic butter is highly addictive as well. The biggest complaint was that the acoustics were really terrible in the place. It looks like a nice place that should be quiet and ambient, but it was very very loud. I'd... More

We have actually been here a couple of times. We love that we can have a romantic date with no kids around. The food has always been good and the service excellent. I eat gluten free and they have always been accommodating to adjust my order. Try it!!

Fritz has great specials at night. I have not had a bad meal there. The wine selection is extremely limited however. Have tea and enjoy wine later at home. The service is very good and quite laid back.

Great food and great prices. I had Fettucini Alfredo with chicken and it was flavorful and nice chunks of chicken. Decent wine selection for small, local restaurant. The catch of the day was enjoyed by the tablemates.

Finally convinced the better half to try Fritz's after a couple of years of trying. She thought it was a beer joint due to the beer garden. That was a plus for me but not for her. Fritz's is much more refined and upscale than she could have imagined. Now for the important part. Our food was well prepared and... More

I've eaten at Fritz's several times over the years and I've never had a bad meal. On the contrary, they are usually excellent! The wait/server staff is excellent. They never fail to answer questions or make perfect suggestions if asked. They have a good wine selection and, along with the usual domestic beers, sometime have an interesting beer or two... More

I was looking for a restaurant to celebrate my husband and my anniversary. I wanted something different. I looked on Trip Advisor and was intrigued by this place. My husband and I decided to try it. When we arrived, we looked at it warily because the outside would not encourage you to go in, but once you enter, it is... More
