For those who love German food, this is your spot in Nyack. After some research, there are not many German restaurants around this area. Luckily, this place satisfies that craving and then some. They have great $10 sandwiches for lunch and are pros at everything schnitzel and wursts. Dinner specialties like the Beef Stroganoff and Sauerbraten always hit the spot.... More

Our family dined here a few nights ago and very much enjoyed ourselves. We started off with two orders of the Belgian Fries which were top notch and the horseradish mayo, garlic mayo, and red curry dipping sauces that came with were all great. We then moved onto the entrees. The star of the car was the Veal Jagerschnitzel -... More

We've been at this restaurant three times in the hopes that at least one of the dishes is authentic, but to no avail. Neither the Rolladen, nor the Schnitzel, nor the Blaukraut, nor the Kartoffelpuffer, nor anything else we tried tastes remotely authentic. One gets the feeling that neither the cooks nor the owner ever tasted German food nor knows... More

Stopped in for a family members birthday. The restaurant was very quiet, with only one other couple present. The waitress got our drinks in a timely manner and our app. orders. Food was pretty tasty as well. We all got a little of something from the menu and no one left disappointed. It was also nice to see how they... More

This a super-tiny restaurant, with a few seats at the bar too ... they do take reservations. Fantastic menu which includes all of the German favorites you'd be looking for: Sauerbraten, Kaesspaetzle, Pretzels, Schnitzel, Wursts, German desserts ... and a FANTASTIC selection of german beers - not just the ones that everyone has around here ... they have some really...

After reading an add for Sour Kraut, I made reservations as a surprise for my husband for fathers day brunch. I disregarded the reviews as some were not complimentary. Actually on one Trip Advisor site it stated the restuaranted was closed. I believe it had just reopened a week ago. What a wonderful surprise! Although it was a bit slow... More

Not such a great set up. One waitress. Maybe she should have been able to handle it. But, people were leaving, people getting wrong orders. People were ordering and paying, then out of ingredients and had to give money back. The waitress was going to catch pneumonia with the top she had on and bent over in front of us... More

We were looking for something different during a night out in Nyack, and decided on German food (after hearing a few recommendations). We left the restaurant a bit disappointed. First, they have a full bar which is nice if you are interested but we were not. What they do not have is either iced tea or bottled water other than... More
