We were unable to call for a reservation because their mail box was full. The website stated operating hours on Sunday. It was very disappointing to find they were closed which was not what the web site stated. They are advertising still on the radio but appear to be closed. Of course if they are on holidays the voice messaging... More

The place has gone downhill and dirty, they are NOT keeping the standards of the previous owners what a shame.

This is the place where you never go home hungry and disappointed! I went to this restaurant many times and will go again! My favorite: Goulash and steak Madagascar with German beer! I never know what kind of beer I will have because I asked the server to surprise me every time. This restaurant is very small and cozy, I... More

This use to be one of our favorite places. Have gone for several birthday celebrations and 2 New Years Eves. My family of 4 went this evening and were very dissapointed! I had made reservations and when we arrived they said there was not one for us. They had a table available anyway and told us to sit down.It was... More

When a wait person starts the dining experience by listing all the dishes they are out of, and you look around and see most patrons waiting for food, you know you are about to be disappointed. Unless you crave poorly prepared imitations of German food, and have 2 or 3 hours to spend waiting to be served,I strongly suggest you... More

The German beers on tap here are delicious. My dinner guest thoroughly enjoyed his meal, but I ordered a cheese and mushroom spaetzle which was flavourless and a bit greasy.

I eat here all the time and have never had a poor experience. The food is delicious and I love hearing them pound out the meat in the kitchen. Food tastes made to order and, after reading some of the reviews, I feel people not picking over the cook not being German or the decor being dated, those really are... More

We had made reservations for 6:00 pm. When we did arrive right on time, it was 30 minutes before the waitress addressed us. We were served our meals at 7:20 pm which I thought was well overdue. The meals were exactly as ordered and perfect. Although we had to wait for a long time to have a pre-dinner drink, the... More
