Frtizy's in Howell is changing owners :(
It is sad, but true. I read it in an ad the original Fritzy placed in the APP. He thanked everyone and said the new onwner (whose name is also Fritzy) will be making some changes to the menu. Let's hope it is still as amazing as the original Fritzy! (Weiner Schnitzel, saurbraten, potato pancakes....yum!)
Since we are on the subject, has anyone ver eaten at Hofenbrahaus in the Highlands? I have always wanted to go, but for some reason I always forget about the place.
Thanks for everything, Fritzy!! Enjoy your retirement!
We have not been back to Fritzy's since the ownership change. It appears the restaurant is now morphing into something other than the wonderful German restaurant it once was.

Very sad! :-(
We went to the Octoberfest at the Hofbrauhaus on Sunday. We had a great time listening to the music and watching the German dancers. The food was just OK but the great view and entertainment made it a lot of fun. The bad news is that they will be closing in a few months so this is their last Octoberfest. The waitress said that the new owners want to have a banquet hall on the bottom floor and a restaurant on the top.
Oh, no! :-( We love Fritzy's and will miss his particular way of cooking (and super generous portions). But I can certainly understand his wanting to retire.
Wonder what kind of changes the new owner has in mind. We'll probably give it a try and hope, as you say, it remains at least as good as it's always been.
As for Hofbrauhaus, we went there once many years ago for Octoberfest. At that time, I found the food disappointing. But, who knows? It may have changed for the better. If you decide to try it, please report back.
