The Black Forest Inn is an authentic German restaurant. The food is outstanding and the ambience warm and friendly. You can get the typical German fare as well as continental dishes. The seafood is fresh and the service outstanding. A must visit restaurant.

We go here to celebrate special occasions and our German heritage. Lunch - Food is very good but portions are small and prices are relatively high for the type of food and portion you receive. The decor is very relating and rustic.
