I'll preface this review by stating that I'm not German, but my wife is half German. She was craving German food so we went here for dinner tonight. When we first entered, the owner greeted us warmly. The place was empty, but that's not surprising since this is off-season. Still it would've been nice to see other customers dining.
We started with a potato pancakes with apple sauce appetizer ($8). The plate had three fairly large pancakes. The potato pancakes were crispy on the outside (albeit a tad overdone) and tender inside. My wife liked it, too.
All entrees come with a choice of soup or salad, and two sides are included. We both chose the salad. It was a pretty simple salad of mostly lettuce, a little bit of julienned carrots, a slice of tomato, and a couple of slices of cucumber. The vinaigrette dressing was decent - tart and mildly sweet. The owner brought us a small dish of german potato salad compliments of the house. The potato salad was really good, light on the vinegar. I couldn't tell if there was any mayo in the salad at all. If so, it was very light on the mayo. The potatos were sliced very thinly and just melted in your mouth.
I chose the pork Jaegerschnitzel (sp?) ($23) for my entree. My wife had the Sauerbraten. The Jaegerschnitzel was crispy on the outside. although I felt it was a bit overdone again. The meat was a little tougher than it should've been. I think this was mainly because it was thicker than it should've been. Maybe it should've been pounded thinner? The brown sauce was nice and thick but I would've liked to have seen some actual sliced mushrooms in it. I love mushrooms! The potato dumplings I chose as a side dish was pretty good. My wife liked it too, but she said it had peppers and she doesn't use (black) peppers in her recipe. The red cabbage we chose as the second side dish wasn't as tart as I would've liked.
We didn't have any room left for dessert. The portions were pretty big. I didn't feel that any part of the meal had small portions at all, as intimated by a previous reviewer.
Overall, I would say the food was decent. The service was superb. The wife/owner, who also served us, was very nice, friendly and very attentive.
