This is supposed to be authentic German food. The food is bland and nothing special...save your money. The restaurant itself is dark, dingy and dated!!!! Not very clean...Poor service...Pass on this.

It's quite a bit smaller inside that you would expect. The portions are large: each meal comes with a (sad) salad or soup (french onion it is not- just a regular onion broth that while good, is not a french onion soup), a vegetable, potato...More

We went here for Father's day, and both Dads were very happy! They have a large selection of German favorites, and each meal comes with soup or salad, and two sides. The French onion soup is amazing! The sauerkraut is delicious. The dessert tray is...More
