Went for dinner before seeing a play at the Barter Theater. The service was the best we've had anywhere and the food was absolutely delicious. Will definitely return. Have lived here for many years and are just now discovering this dining treasure.

The menu is OK. Not the most diverse. BUT, the chef must have stock in Morton Salt. OMG! Everything was so salty we couldn't taste anything but. Not returning.

As I recall, the portions weren't particurally large. My wife and I both had a selection from the German dishes and they were great. The management is very friendly and I'm sure that they'd agree to sharing anything. I'd... More
