“A Bad experience”
Reviewed 10 October 2012

Having made a reservation and arriving only 5 minutes early we were very surprised to find that the Chef had closed the kitchen. We could see people still eating inside. After banging on the door a young lady informed us that the kitchen was now closed and provided no explanation. Since there are few restaurants in the area this created a significant problem at 7 30. Not a pleasant way to be treated.

“European Village Style Restaurant”
Reviewed 26 June 2012

This restaurant was recommended to us by several locals. It was a rainy, cool night, but the perfect cozy place for dinner. The bread was excellent and the salads were loaded with fresh ingredients. The food was German/Austrian and very authentic. My husband loved his schnitzel. Veggies were served family style. There were two large groups celebrating events, so service was a bit slow, but the food was well worth the wait. The only complaint was that we ate so much we didn't have room for any of their yummy desserts.

“My Favorite Place to Go”
Reviewed 28 May 2012

I live in the area and this is my place for celebrations. The food is consistently good and the menu has not changed in the 12 years I've been going there. I like that I can count on that. The atmosphere is homey and comfortable. Service is not swift but the chef makes everything as it is ordered so it hasn't been sitting around.
