My husband and I had the pork schnitzel it was excellent. The Mac and cheese was the best. The portion was huge. We shared the German chocolate cake it was very good . The waitress was very good. Would highly recommend.

We enjoyed dinner here on a quick get away to galena. We had hoped to go to a different place, but found out they were full for the evening. Friends had suggested Fritz & Frites, so we ventured here as a back up. Overall, we had a nice dinner. The menu skews to being more European (German and French, as... More

Very disappointed in the service & food. Had the much heralded Weinerschnitzel which was tough and hard to cut even though it was extremely thin. Breading fell off and separated from the meat. Salad was good but had hardly any dressing on it. Atmosphere is very nice, relaxing and intimate. Service was not attentive even though there were just a... More

Our family went to Fritz and Frites for lunch in August of 2016. The service was good and the food even better! I and several other members of our party had seen steak frites offered for dinner, but it wasn't on the lunch menu. The chef was so accommodating and made 3 steak frites for our party. It was delicious!... More

We got there about 8:15 on Wednesday evening. They closed at 9 but it was not a problem. This place is a gem. The French and German flavor implied by the name was self-evident throughout including the atmosphere. Blink and you could have just as easily have been in Europe living La Vie en Rose, I had a German dish... More

The food was excellent, generous portions, and cooked to order. The serving staff was friendly and very efficient. We enjoyed our meal and will return there on our next visit.

This was a nice quiet place for us to have dinner, but the service time is a little slow. The dessert of excellent, but the portion sizes for the meals seemed a little big. Food was good, but just too much to finish.

We drove out to Galena for a ride and decided to eat at Fritz and Frites. Our waitress was friendly, attentive and knew the menu. We ordered two different kinds of Schnitzel (delicious) and beef with a pickle cooked in the middle of it. Although my son didn't care for the pickle, he liked the meat. The Spaetzle was luke...

We were there with 5 couples, and every single one of us had a great meal. Food was superb, and the waitress we had was phenomenal. She was efficient, pleasant and very attractive, and no doubt brought in repeat customers as a result. All of our meals were large portions. Would highly recommend the pork schnitzel!

I have nothing bad to say. Food and service was good. Not excellent, but good. It's a small place located near the end of Main St. I would recommend stopping in to see for yourself
