In an inauspicious setting a fun and delicious dining experience. From the pretzels served as bread through the schnitzels and many many beers. ( The regulars bring their own beer steins).

Gourmet it is not- good it certainly is. I went back twice on my visit to the area and will return.

Went here last night and had a delicious meal based on relative's suggestion. Definitely make reservations. Don't worry if the lights go out! Will return on next trip.

ask for the coupons they give out with your bill for your next visit, as much as 50% off the whole bill some nights. The chopped salad is one of my favorites, as is the Wiener Schnitzel...and for dessert, the apple strudel is amazing and HUGE. Great beer selection, but not great for wines unless you like German wines.

Love this restaurant. Rachel and others behind the bar are great. Matt is always making sure the machine is well oiled. I try to make it before or after the rush because it is indeed packed. No way around it, it's in high demand. Especially in season - (If you don't want to wait, go to Fritz & Franz German restaurant a few miles away. - it's empty there for a reason.)
Love the selection of beer, the stuffed schnitzel, rouladen, and the pork shank. One of the best kept secrets in Pompano. Keep up the good work!

Went here a week ago with the family for dinner. Placed a reservation for 8 people at 7'oclock. The place was packed but our table was ready by our reservation time. We each grabbed a liter of authentic German beer (drinking from a mini boot) and had some tremendous appetizers. They brought some bread and hot pretzels to the table and we devoured everything. I got the Veal Wienerschnitzel with 2 sides (Spaetzel, and cucumber salad). Everything was great as I cleared the plate. The 2lb lamb shank was enormous, as two people in the group got that entree. We finished the evening with a very tasty Homemade apple Strudel and Kelly's German Chocolate cake. I would definitely recommend going here for some authentic German cuisine, but make sure to make a reservation as this place fills up quickly.
