March 2019, that is...
March 29 Google Streetview - still there as strip center.
Well, in January of 2017, the building is still there. Barely recognizable. Now a strip "center" with about four stores.
Sunday after church dinner. The top choice of the kids. Ate more lobster there in 2 years than the rest of my life,

According to Miami News articles of the day, Edith & Fritz offered "all you can eat" dinners of broiled rock lobster or shrimp steamed in beer for the phenominal price of $1.50 in the forties and fifties. A 1958 ad shows the price at $1.95, but by 1977 the price had reverted back to the original. Also advertised was "french fried lobster" Edith & Fritz Dorigo were also the owners of the popular Hofbrau Haus in Hallandale.
WOW! I always talk about the HUGE all you can eat lobster's at Edith and Fritz... Plus the fabulous pumpernickle bread. No one seems to remember this! All of our cousin's, especially Leonard Guyer, loved this place!!!
My grandparents took us there fairly often for the veal cutlet. The bartender would let my brother and me sit at the end of the bar and serve us Roy Rogers and Shirley Temples. For your birthday, they gave you a huge strawberry shortcake.
This place was always packed. The line would be out the front door and down to the corner. Food was superb.
