Going to Fredericksburg is one of those outings that are meant to allow you to relax, see new things and eat foods you normally don't eat everyday- my family has German roots and we do love the bratwurst, strudels and spaetzles- we grew up eating these foods and they are really quite delicious- Friedhelms is always good- cabbage soup is...

I was surprised that most restaurants in Fredericksburg did not have Spatzel on the menu. How can you be an authentic German restaurant without Spatzel? This was the primary reason we ended up at Friedhelm's and we were not disappointed. I had sauerbraten, my daughter had jaeger schnitzel, and my husband had a sausage plate. We all enjoyed our meals... More

We've been to all the German food restaurants in Fredericksburg but our go-to place for the best schnitzel is Friedhelms. The food is always excellent, the service is good and we always leave satisfied and full. We were there last night and it was as good as the first time we went there over 20 years ago. Still the best.

I'm a bit surprised there are any negative reviews, because our experience was terrific! I had the sausage plate with red cabbage which I enjoyed very much, but my wife had the shnitzel, which I tasted, and it was sensational! The decor was very nice, and although they were quite busy, (Saturday), the service was good! We would happily return!

We normally visit this restaurant every year, but this year something has changed.usually your dinner consists of soup, salad and your choice of meat and a side. This time we had a choice of a cup of soup or a salad and one side. My husband, daughter and I wanted an eextra side usually sides are a few dollars when... More

This place was very busy on a Saturday night. My mom, who goes to Fredericksburg a lot said this was a favorite place of hers. However, it was crowded and there was not enough staff. Once we were seated, the food took a while too. About $20 a plate, so it's not cheap. Food is 4 star, but docked a... More

After eating schnitzel at several other German restaurants in town, I must say this is the best. I loved the pepper schnitzel and my friend who had the Jaeger schnitzel loved it too. Another in our party had the huge pork chop and enjoyed it very much .They also serve the best red cabbage in town. It is warm and... More
