Really Enjoyable

The food was very, very good. Not a whole lot left to say about a restaurant than that. Good combination of local and German brews. However, be careful as a large is VERY large...and we thank you for this. Atmosphere is average or a bit below as the place is small. However, after the meal I... read more

Always meets expectations, as far as the food and service goes. I would give anything to have another bite of the chicken cordon blue and fried potatoes. Over the years our family has met for a Christmas Eve dinner and often come here. This year my sister called for reservations and when we arrived, sadly we were informed that reservations... More

I drove 65 miles to try this restaurant and was surprised as to how good it is. I have not had German food since being in Berlin a few years ago and this food is close to tasting the same. Great experience. I recommend this restaurant to anyone that enjoys German food.

Had heard about this place from friends, so when I had a chance to be in Huntsville for work, I decided to give it a try. Sure glad I did. Excellent Sauerbraten. Well worth the price. And the Strudel reminded me of my grandmother's. Worth going back to, for sure. Colleagues all said the same things about their meals. None... More

You can order the light fare such as chicken cordon bleu with cold german potato salad and then add a heavy dessert with coffee, nice place to stop for lunch.

I went here for lunch, and I'm sorry to say I won't be going back. I order the Jeagerschnitzel and it tasted like a breaded steak with plain brown gravy. Didn't taste authentic at all.

If you like German food, I suggest a visit. Pros: very good food; ambiance; excellent beer Cons: wait staff weren't very friendly; expensive Make a reservation or get there early.

My coworkers love this place so they finally talked me into eating here for lunch. The Reuben was ok but not spectacular and not even warm. I would probably go back again and hope for warm food next time.

I have been visiting this restaurant for over 5 years. I go there at least twice each time I visit Huntsville, AL. The food is authentic, delicious German food. The service is wonderful. Not only are the servers efficient, they are helpful, knowledgeable, and just plain fun. No matter which server is assigned to your table, they will all stop... More

Our hotel recommended this restaurant. We've been to Germany and can say that this restaurant is authentic. The food is wonderful. The restaurant is located in a mall and you really have to look for it. Otherwise, it's just right.
