Dinner was awesome. Great Germain food and great beer. Server was a little slow on the rounds, but other wise a great time.

We love coming here. The portions are HUGE (enough for 3 meals) and the prices incredibly fair! Schnitzels are very good. It's a really rich meal so we can't do it very often, but is definitely worth it!

My wife and I took out a couple from our business and had great food we all had different schnitzels . The homemade Tomato macaroni soup was very good everyone enjoyed the schnitzel's. Everyone took home a doggie bag because there was so much food. Will go back soon.

First time here and wasn't disappointed. Went during the week so wasn't really too busy. Food was fantastic and more than I could finish. Service was great except for the waiter having a habit of putting his hands in the back of his pants- that put me off a little but not enough to not return. Keep your hands out... More

I would highly recommend Zum Linzer. Huge portions, great service and Hacker Pschorr on tap. I had the "hunter schnitzel with spatzle" it was delicious and perfectly done. Be sure to make a reservation, there is limited seating and it's very busy.

Went to zum linsner for dinner last Saturday. It just does not get any better. Got a half liter of the house white wine and sipped on it while chatting with the friendly owner for a while. We started with the mushrooms. We got so many that we could have made a meal out lf them. They were great. I... More

Have been going to this place a few years now. Wanted to share my thoughts, and express how much I like the food, atmosphere, and service. The food is outstanding. Huge variety, I have tried so many dishes. Always find myself going with Vienna Schnitzel, Germania, or Hunter Schnitzel. They now do breakfast on Sunday which is also amazing. The... More

We eat there once or twice a year.Food is German and Austrian and is very good and portions are huge.It is also reasonably priced.Be prepared for a box to go.Staff are very friendly and helpful.Restaurant is very small so it is wise to reserve ahead.There is parking around the back but sign is hard to see.

good choice of german and austrian dishes. Plates were plentiful and looked appetizing. Good choice of beers. The food was very tasty but also very salty, too much for my taste. The waiter did not seem to enjoy his job. Made my companion feel stupid. Small, somewhat intimate place. Would be a good idea to make reservation. The evening we... More
