Atmosphere is great (in an old downtown building with a mezzanine) and service is top notch. Quick for anyone on a limited lunch time. We go there several times each month.

Great food, great flavors, HUGE portions, fun atmosphere, friendly staff... just a great place to eat! Strange to say that a small town in Tennessee is a go-to spot for German food, but this is definitely going on my list!

Huge portions and good food. Love the beer cheese on anything. The schnitzel is very crispy and flavorful. Cool atmosphere and nice staff.

They serve large plates that have little flavor and far from authentic. Sauerbraten was tough and frankly taseless, Jaeger schnitzel was previously frozen and awful. We both left 99% percent of our plates on the table. Servers nice but would not recommend.

No wine but the beer is good and cold. The food is awesome and the portions are huge, and enough for leftovers for 2 days. The service was excellent the atmosphere a traditional bar feel. Got the schnitzel with gravy off to the side, which...More

Ate here for lunch recently. Very good but much too heavy for lunch. Got the schnitzel sandwich which I think is the same as the regular schnitzel entree but on a bun. My advice is go for dinner and drink lots of good beer.

This is my husband’s and my favorite lunch and dinner place in Kohnson City. The food is delicious, the service is great and the ambiance cannot be beaten.

Frieberg's serves excellent German food. Prices are good, particularly for lunch. They have a $5 lunch menu with a variety of food options.

My friends and I loved this place. Great service and cold beer are always a positive. The food was really good and the leftovers will not go to waste. Highly recommend!
