Schnitzel and fries tasted like from frozen pork pattie and oven chips. Half chicken was dry and plain. Beer was cheaper than other places, place was clean, staff were nice. I would go for a drink again but never for food.

Even though I am a meat and potatoes lover, I have to admit I found that most German food tasted the same to me! However, we went here when visiting our past exchange student's family and this was the one exception! We were a large group of ten and were seated immediately. It was a festive atmosphere and our service... More

Then decided to go back and eat there. The Bier Haxe. ( pork hock with very good cabbage and a large bread dumpling) was great as was the "sauer... More

I had the suckling pork knuckle which was beautiful. I thought it woulf have a bit crispier crackling but the meat was tender and fell off the bone. For the price exellent value.

Good local menu - but you need to like pork! I had a fantastic looking crispy pig's knuckle. Absolutely huge so I could not finish it. The place was heaving, lively and the staff were friendly. We had a good night here.
