My wife and I were tired and ready to just sit down in any restaurant. We walked in and had really good service. The German sausage was good, but not exceptional.

We booked the restaurant in advance as it has very good reviews here. It was a big disappointment. There were 4 of us, all having Brühe or bouillon. It was not homemade at all, tasted like instant soup, disgusting. We really wanted to try maultaschen (lookslike filled ravioli with sauce). They served egg omellette instead of the a real Maultaschen.... More

Ate here to take a break from the food at the Christmas markets. Walked in and got the very last open table. Although it was a table for 4 (and we were 4 people), the server immediately moved us to a larger table as soon as one opened up so we would be more comfortable. Our server was so nice... More

Nice waitress and service, but the food fell down. Overly soft sauerbraten, nice klos: tough pork schnitzel with tasteless fench fries.

Great location and since not right on the main square it's less of a tourist trap. When we walked in the restaurant was full so we asked the waitress if we could put our name on a list or wait. She said it would be an hour so don't bother. We could see that most people were already eating so... More

We were staying close to the Gashof Butz, which is only a 2 minute walk from the main town hall. The rooms are quite large, and when we arrived at 6pm the place was emptied but full to the brim by 6:45pm. The waiter was friendly and menu came in English. We decided to have the Frankonian sausages with sauerkraut... More

So having only eaten at 5 places in town I can say this place was my favorite. First, unlike the restaurant Zur Holle which looked very cool on the inside (go there but make reservations), the wait isn't crazy. The food is good and priced correctly unlike much of the rest of town. The tip is included in the price.... More

I had the Frankonian sausages with saurkraut and potato dumpling (subbed it for the roasted potatoes). It was one of the best meals of my entire trip! The restaurant was close to the market square but tucked away and quiet. We showed up when they opened at 6 and almost all of the outside tables had reservations on them for... More
