Good, authentic German food at a great price.
Excellent décor. You feel like you're in a Inn in Germany.

“Good German Cusine”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2014

This restaurant serves a nice variety of wonderful german dishes with servers dressed in authentic german garb. The atmosphere is true to the experience. Everyone in our party enjoyed the great service and food. I would have liked to see more choices of draft beer, but the one I had was good. The prices are very reasonable and the daily special is a real value. Definately a place to visit on a regular basis.

“AUTHENTIC GERMAN”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 February 2014 via mobile

This restaurant is only open in the evenings and has a daily special. On Wednesday I had the German meatball. I'd like to try going on a Thursday when live music is played. Very reasonably priced. The apple strudel looked delicious. The black forest cake I had was just o.k. lots of German beers and good service. There was a used (?) napkin tucked in with the condiments. I asked the young bus girl to remove it, but apparently she didn't hear me. Otherwise clean.

“Bland German food served in a lively little place.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 January 2014

We enjoy going here for the occasional German live music and some of the daily specials. The service is a little slow but is very friendly. The atmosphere is traditional German. Some of the tables are family style, which is common in Germany and Austria. They have mostly private booths and tables, though. The biggest problem is that, though authentic, the food lacks a lot of flavor. What flavor it has is not bad (although I can't recommend the sausages). The weinerschnitzel varieties are generally good as are some of the specials. The desserts are ho-hum. It is still our go-to local German restaurant...until we find a better one.

“Excellent German Meals”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 December 2013

We just happened to stop at this tiny German cafe by accident. We checked the menu outside and decided to give it a try. The interior reminded us of some of the small cafes we ate at when we visited Germany. The staff was friendly and helpful and service was excellent. We tried a couple variations of wiener schnitzel. I had the spaetzle with mine and DH had mashed potatoes. We also had the red cabbage. The food was delicious. There are lots of choices on the menu included various types of sausage and entrees. We were brought fresh bread and butter while we waited on our meals. There is a good choice of wines and beer to accompany the meals. The apple strudel looked delicious and next time I will be sure to leave room for dessert. They have nightly specials and on weekends there is entertainment and food specials. We look forward to visiting this restaurant again.
