Fressen is great! I took my dad and boyfriend here for dinner (my dad LOVES German food), and everyone's meal was a hit. My bratwurst was flavorful, the sauerkraut was delicious, and the boys' jaegerschnitzel was heavenly. Looking forward to next time!

Wednesday at 5 p.m. On a Friday evening. Place was dark. Call the phone number written on the window. No answer. Would have liked to have tried the place. Maybe we'll give it one more chance.

I ate dinner here on a Saturday night. We arrived at about 5:30, an hour after they opened, and were seated immediately. This is a small place with seating for no more than 20 people so there wasn't much choice in tables. On a Saturday...More

My husband went here the other night. It was good, but not the best we've had. I had jaeger schnitzel, and the mushroom sauce was excellent, the pork tenderloin cooked perfectly. My husbands Wiener schnitzel was a little chewy, not melt in your mouth tender...More

There aren't many choices here. I went a month or so after they opened. The food they made was good. Not as good as homemade, but close. They do make it to order though, which means it takes a while to serve you but they...More

My husband had the veal and I had jagerschnitzel (sp?). Both were very, very good. We definitely will go back! Great value, too. Atmosphere is somewhat austere, but that's the only criticism.

My German great-grandmother used to admonish family members "Don't fress," meaning, "Don't eat like an animal," or "Don't gorge yourself." At Anchorage's only German restaurant, it's worth taking the time to savor every bite of the meal, whether you finish it all at once or...More

Service was good, dropped in on a whim. I was pleasantly surprised. One of my favorite things to eat when I was stationed in Berlin was jäger schnitzel. I haven't found anything close...until today. Very good! Parking is very limited parallel street side. I arrived...More
