Just celebrated my 70th birthday dinner with a family of 12, including children. Thank you Friedhelms for a wonderful meal of schnitzel and prime rib. Food was fantastic and the service was spot on. What a great birthday.

6 of us had dinner there. We all enjoyed the schnitzel, sausage plate & salads. Excellent food & service. It’s away from Main st so not crowded. Love the atmosphere. We’re locals and love to take our visitors there.
