“Bring your dog”
Reviewed 2 August 2014

It was a rainy day in Vail and we were looking for a place to have dinner bringing our dog who has problems being left alone at a hotel. We were standing outside the restaurant and we were addressed with welcome - do you need help? We said we were looking for a place for dinner, but needed to bring the dog. He said we could eat on the patio and they had really big umbrellas up so we did not get wet at all. They even brought cushions for the chairs and a water bowl for our dog.The food was authentic German (we are from Austria so we would know the difference). Well prepared and excellent. The service was friendly and very helpful. The cheesecake with berries is a must try. Will come back.

“An old, old favorite.”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

We discovered this place after having lived in Germany and felt right at home. That was in 1988 and we've been back often! The food is still just fantastic! Understand there is a new owner, but she's doing it right!

“A bit of Bavaria in Vail”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

We took our adult children here during our Vail vacation. I thoroughly enjoyed the restaurant, service, and food. I felt the menu was authentic German with a wide selection. The wine list was broad and a bit high.
The gazpacho was an excellent starter, better than the German salad. The traditional beef tips in sauce was superb. The Weiner Schnitzel was also very good. I especially would suggest saving room for their desserts -in house made pastries.
The cost for 6 including a bottle of Orin Swift Abstract ($58) was about $50 per person.
Enjoy.
