Fodor's Review

The two levels here can carry you from an early dinner through the wee hours. Go downstairs for a fine meal of local standbys such as salmon, steak, venison or lamb, with homemade bread. Franz Josef is small enough to walk from most accommodations to dinner, but if you did want a courtesy car, these people have a stretch hummer available. Upstairs there's a bar where you can order a pizza and a beer and rack up at the free pool table. This place goes late, and thus becomes the town's late-night party spot during the tourist season.
