It is not about being German cuisine, its not about tricking anyone into thinking you are in Germany...what it is about is the fact that this is a warm feel-good place. A place where they work their butts off to make you happy, to make sure you have your food (which to me is VERY good), and a place where groups can and will have a blast.
It really is about what you make of it, its about being together with friends and family much like a thanksgiving feast, and if you are expecting a 5 start bistro, then you better go somewhere else...BUT if you are looking for a place where a 80 something year old dear little ole lady STILL oversees the kitchen who is happy to come out and meet the guests, and the servers carry trays loaded with food that weigh more than they do just so you are happy, and if you are looking for the type of place where an accordion player frequently comes out and plays um-papa music...then this is the kind of place you are looking for.
I almost always tip more than 20% to 25% as a result of the service we get, and that's after getting the $150 bill for the group of us.
I was here a few weeks ago for a birthday celebration, and drive the hour and a half just to eat here at least 2 or 3 times a year.
This trip we got a chance to do the pretzel making tour in the basement with the family...a great deal of fun for sure!
After dinner its nice to stroll to the river shops, the fudge house and the cheese haus, although you we are usually way too stuffed...but the walk is nice.
Bottom line, this is a unique experience that I would recommend to anyone!
