Authentic menu and atmosphere. Little pricey but worth every penny! Very rare you find great food and service at the same time!

My partner loves real German food so was thrilled to find this restaurant. We had originally planned to go somewhere else down the street, but he saw this and really wanted to go. We didn't have reservations but they got us seated within 10 minutes or so. The food was good, he says the best real German food he'd ever... More

I would highly recommend this place for dinner if you are in the area. It is a nice atmosphere inside with the owner greeting us at the entrance. We were ask if we had reservations by the owner; which we didn't. He allowed us to have a seat at the bar and he worked us in for a nice table... More

Dined with my wife on a local recommendation. The sausage platter was generous and really a good start. The sauerbraten was disappointing in that the meat wasn't marinated long enough and tasted more like a good pot roast with sauerbraten gravy. If you are really into sauerbraten, skip ordering that and order the beef and pork tips with mushrooms and... More

Went for dinner midweek with co-workers. It can be noisy but what looked like authentic Bavarian atmosphere. Started with the fried brie and sausage platter. Great for sharing. Sausages were very good and served with dijon,a spicy mustard and a red curry sauce. The pork hock was on special but unfortunately was sold out. Had the pork schnitzel and potato... More

My wife and I drove up for a late Sunday lunch/early dinner. We were both very pleased with the atmosphere, staff, and food. The food & wine were very good, we both enjoyed everything. Our waitress was very friendly and attentive. Our tab was about what we expected for to appetizers, dinners with wine and dessert. Medium pricey but not... More

Dined here with my wife this past Sunday afternoon after visit to Lennox Outlet and we were both very satisfied. Both food and service were impeccable. Try the Schmankerl Topf which was tender beef and pork medallions with a Hunters Style sauce with a cream of almond, spaetzle, and sauteed green beans with onion, carrots, and yellow pepper cooked to...

If you like rancid tasting meat, canned sauce, and 10 for a dollar canned mushrooms piled on top, this is the place for you. For starters, we tried "potato soup." Not sure where they got either potato or soup from what they put in the bowl, but it looked like watered down flour-based gravy. We also tried the fried red... More
