Bar / Lounge / Bottle Service
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.

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.

Fritz Bar + Restaurant is the perfect spot for delicious continental-inspired dishes in a warm, cozy atmosphere. And the view...it will take your breath away, (but don't worry, you'll get it back when you smell the delicious cocktails and inviting warm plates).

I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who enjoys delicious food in a relaxed atmosphere. We were lucky enough to have a beautiful evening to enjoy the stunning view from the patio.

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.

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!!

This is one of our favorite places in Vermont. Such a lovely spot, with history and charm all around. I would only ask..if you book a table during a holiday period....Don't cancel last minute if you can help it. These establishments depend on our support during these difficult days ahead. They're already at reduced capacity. Your cancelled table went empty. And, when you do go, tip your server, generously. Lets work together to get through this tough time. Hope we can all celebrate at a restaurant when we are covid free. It should be so. Be well. Stay safe.

We dine here every time we stay at The Stowehof, and it’s just the best! The food is always flavorful and delicious, the service is quick, and the staff are beyond friendly. One bartender, Dave, is a big reason we come back every year. We just got home today and already can’t wait to be back again!😊
