Enjoy al fresco dining poolside or step into our cozy dining room, named after world-famous mountaineer and one-time resident of The Stowehof, Fritz Wiessner. In 1929, Wiessner emigrated from Germany and pioneered many popular American mountain-climbing routes. Now, we commemorate him at the Fritz Bar + Restaurant, with a casual American Bistro menu serving locally-sourced foods, beers, and spirits.

We are known for our fun dining atmosphere. We recommending ordering many small share plates to get a taste of everything, all while enjoying a Heady Topper or craft cocktail, mixed with finest distilled liquors.

For holidays, we often put together special tasting menus with multiple courses and a more formal feel to celebrate the occasion. During these times we do limit our regular dinner menu. Please give us a call or visit our website for more information.

                                    Had a great dinner at Fritz’s. Cozy, pub-like setting. Lots of drink/beer selection. Duck fat fries were amazing. Made another reservation on my way out.

                                    We had a lovely dinner and a wonderful evening. This restaurant has such a cosy and relaxed vibe which feels like a hidden lair with low ceiling, its nooks and crannies and a pool table. My chicken burger was delicious and my boyfriend’s steak was also very good. The cooking was perfect. I had a great wheat beer and my boyfriend had a great pinot noir by the glass which was very generous in quantity. It would be nice to have the beautiful fireplace in use as it would add to the already very cosy atmosphere but maybe it is because it gets the restaurant too warm. Our server was great and efficient. We loved it so much that we will be back at our next stay at the incredible Stowehof.

                                    Our server was the best. He was so patient with our never ending questions and handled our boisterous group of 7 very effectively and cheerfully. Our drinks were delicious and the food was very good. I wish my fondue had a little more bite to it. It was a bit runny but the generous board of veggies and bread made up for it. The Schnitzel got a solid A from an Austrian and a German. The sauce was not traditional but still delicious. Cocktails were great too. Very comfortable & cozy atmosphere.

                                    Love the Stowehof and the Fritz Bar & Restaurant. The service is friendly and helpful and the Stowehof itself is a wonderfully quirky and unique place. They definitely don't make them like this anymore! Be sure to go upstairs to the lounge afterwards to finish your drink and enjoy the fabulous open fire place while soaking up the atmosphere.

                                    We had an early dinner at Fritz just before the snowstorm. The food was great, it reminded us of Austria. The service was very personal as the place is small and you will get a personalized attention. Totally worth the drive. Highly recommended if you are in Stowe area.

                                    nice atmosphere in a romantic basement room, pool table and bar, server seemed to be pulled in 10000 different places so we had to wait a while for him on a few occasions for check/drinks and such. over all great place to eat!

                                    Wonder evening at Fritz’s. Our server took his time and realized we were in no hurry. The menu is varied and good,with lots of choices. We had schnitzel and salmon,which were outstanding. There is an outside firepit,and tables as well as inside seating. A fine choice.

                                    The service was super slow. It was not crowded. This is more of a bar than a restaurant. The food was flavorless. The views are great though.

                                    The service was very good. The food was good, however the portions were very small for the price. I ordered the gnocchi which were good, but I do not believe the 7 small gnocchi I received was worth $25.00. We also ordered a cheese plate which was $23 and it was the smallest cheese platter I have ever seen. I was hesitant on leaving a negative review since the service was excellent, but this was the most expensive meal we had during our stay in Stowe. It definitely was not worth the price.

                                    10 gnocci for $24. More of a starter than a main. Schnitzel was good. Yes, I know its hard to get servers and there is nothing open in Stowe. but we were dissapointed in the ambiance and the food. Not our favorite meal in not our favorite city.

                                    This was REALLY GOOD! As we pulled in to the parking lot it didn't look great. Entered the building and was sent downstairs to the bar area. Not really impressed but WAIT!!! The food and service from start to finish was PERFECT! Here's the short of this, would we go back? Yes! Will we recommend? Yes! True diamond in the rough.

                                    Great little on-site restaurant. Limited menu, I assume due to Covid, but the food was delicious. Cozy pub atmosphere.

                                    Perfect ambiance for a ski weekend dinner, everything from the old Vermont Inn feel to the fondue was perfect! Wonderful night in Stowe.

                                    We picked Fritz due to the proximity to our condo, reviewing the menu & reading other reviews. For the most part, we were not disappointed. Situated in the basement of a hotel, the restaurant had a cozy interior. Service was exemplary. We shared 2 appetizers a warm brown bread that was bursting with flavor We also shared a pickled sausage, egg, & pickle tray - great bar food! Both of us tried the pork schnitzel & we were a little disappointed. We were served a very thin (possibly machine pressed) breaded schnitzel that was quite bland and a little dry. Once cut up though & mixed with the red cabbage & spaetzel, it was much improved. That being said I would come back & recommend Fritz to anyone looking for a good after ski dinner. Also try the spicy margarita!!

                                    Such great food! Super cozy bar area. Only issue was the chlorine smell from the hotel WHEN we walked in, we couldn’t smell it while in restaurant. The food was amazing, hidden gem!

                                    Cute hotel and cozy atmosphere. Friendly but somewhat indifferent service. Would try again, but not a knock out experience.
