Looking for a different restaurant to try, my husband and I made a dinner reservation at Fritz and Frites. From the moment we entered, it was a wonderful and relaxing dining experience. Our waitress, Sara, was fabulous; helpful, funny, and just right. The food was absolutely delicious and we had a truly enjoyable time. We will definitely dine there again... More

We didn't know what to expect - mid week, town dead, but what a find. They cover both cuisines well in their lovely European styled bistro. We had a great bottle of wine, excellent service and we ordered some German and some French. All delicious! Would return any time we're near Galena.

Very pleasant restaurant with good ambience. I had roast chicken and my husband had cassoulet and both were excellent. Started with lovely pate and cornichons. Highly recommend.

My wife and I had a special dining experience here in celebration of our anniversary. Everything was done to perfection from the Brie appetizer to hot bacon spinach salad, German entrees, and on to dessert. We wish we were back there right now! Our server was fun and professional and made us feel special. Couldn't ask for more!

Need reservations! The food is really good and I only rated it 4 stars because the service was a little slow. We waited about 10 min to get our drinks after we ordered them.

So fantastic we ate there two of the three nights of our stay. First rate food and service. A choice of French and/or German cuisine. Excellent wine list and cocktail menu.

This was a very pleasant restaurant with excellent food. I had mushroom soup and a very good salad. My friends enjoyed their meals also. Tables were well-spaced. The menu features both German and French foods.
