Food was fantastic ! I've never had a bad meal here. At the time we were here they were not very busy , but service was a little slow. We were seated at a small table by the side door, was a little drafty and had to keep my coat on the whole time there. I only ate part of... More

My wife and I had dinner at F&F this past Saturday. What a great place. The food was fantastic. We both had wienerschnitzel it was very tasty and tender along with the sauerkraut and spaetzle. Apple strudel desert top it off ( you hungry yet!) Service was good and respectful. We were there early on a Saturday so only a... More

This restaurant's German faire is excellent. Service was great. Waitress was friendly and very helpful. Weinersnitzel is to die for.

We had Saturday night dinner at Fritz and Frites while my siblings, their spouses and my husband and I had a grown-up get-away in Galena. We arrived early for our reservation but were quickly escorted to the small private dining room in the back. It was the perfect setting for our lively crew and Nellie, our server, rolled with us....

We gobbled up every frite mounded on the plate and believe they were better than our memories from France. Only 15 tables, top-notch service, and knock-your-socks off entrees.

Our visit to Fritz and Frites was on a slow, rainy night. We had reservations, but we didn't need them even though it was Friday. Saturday night would have been much busier at this time of year. We shared the baked brie as an appetizer, which was good, but not what we were expecting. Instead of a flaky crust, the... More

This place is so quaint and cozy. Great date restaurant. The menu is small but the selections are good. There is a relaxed and casual pace here so you never feel hurried. The wine selection is good. I have eaten breakfast lunch and dinner here and never been disappointed. Since it sits at the north end of town I think... More

The food is TO DIE for! So good! We went for a birthday girls trip-took my sister-and it was absolutely perfect for us. We each got something different so we could each taste everything, and each dish was perfectly cooked! My personal favorite was the Rouladen, but if you don't like pickles don't get it (I ended up with my... More

This is definitely a place to go for foodies or people that are looking for something different than the typical dining experience. The food was exquisite and the service was absolutely stellar. Definitely would recommend it!

We had a great night out at Fritz and Frites on a busy February weekend night. Staff was amazing. Got our toddler to sit in her high chair, when we can't even do that most nights. Got her all set-up with crayons, and had her meal out in a matter of minutes. There was one point in the evening when... More
