ate here twice last week. The place was recommended by the hotel staff. Returned the following day with a group of 12 and had a great time. Very reasonable prices with good food. Portions can be huge as others have mentioned. They officer 1/4 size, 1/2 size and so on. A normal portion is in line with what they call... More

The food is really good. There is always a very friendly atmosphere for the food to be so large it is prepared a lot faster that you would expect. I can sit on this soap box forever so you really have to just see for yourself.

I stopped here last year when I visited Ramstein AFB. Great food, fast service. I loved the outdoor seating, english speaking staff, tasty beer and really worth it, close to the gate too if you're walking.

Atmosphere and service was fantastic. We sat outside on the patio. Besides the constant smoke in our face from the lady behind us and being stung by a bee, it was a great experience. The food was good but way too big. Everyone needed a to go box. Wouldn't be so bad but the hamburgers are bigger than your head... More

I really didn't understand what the fuss way about. Yes it is true… the portions are unbelievably huge but you aren't allowed to share and the food isn't THAT good so so much ends up going to waste! Once was enough for me!

Friendly fast service, small salad bar. Ordered steak and it was very good with some kind of gravy. Fried potatoes great, my son had the spaghetti and he got the full size not realizing it was enough for 4 people. It was good location, close to base. Ate outdoors, only drawback--bees starting buzzing around us and we had to leave... More

The food was good, and the portions are humongous. The sizes are quarter, half, and full. Quarter is more than enough. We wanted to get a half size and share but they will not let adults share. They did however let our three children share the full size schnitzel burger which was €20. The food was good, and had fun... More

Always interesting to watch people take the Big Emma challenge. Staff is very friendly and fluent in English. Popular restaurant with military members.
