Huge portions

I'm not a huge fan of German fare but when I want schnitzel, this is the joint. My father in law gets the swine hock and it's as big as his head...I can barely look at it, due to it's obscene size but if you like it; they rave about it.

Loved it and so will you. Great atmosphere and food. Friendly people and plenty of smiles. The lamb shank was great with awesome crackle.

My wife and I have been to many German restaurants around the US, and none of them compare to this place. They have a wide variety of traditional food, and ours was prepared perfectly. We stopped in for lunch before catching our flight, and the service was quick and courteous.

As you walk in, it may look a little dark, as soon as you are in the main dinning area, the Bavarian atmosphere hit you in the face (in a good way). You've just travel to Munich in an instant. In top of this, the 0.5 liter hugs of beer make the experience much more magical. Plus, our waiter, Griselda... More

The inside looked like you took a step back in time. Beer steins and all sorts of items on shelves lining the dining room. The German food was good.

We had a fun filled night out with family. Wonderful friendly service, delicious home style cooking & the music played on. The menu had a large selection to choose from so everyone enjoyed something different. It would be a great restaurant to take out of town visitors to. We will put this one on our do this again list for... More

Been there for at least three times and was never disappointed. Great beer on draft and all I've tried so far comes pretty close to german recipes (just for the record, I was born in Germany and have lived decades there).

The food here is good - it's German. Not so sure how fresh, or if it's even from scratch though, and the service is AWFUL. Owner doesn't seem to care much either.

We've been here before and the food had been good, as in their popular signature pork shank, always done to perfection but last nite's dinner was a big challenge to digest. The place was packed, atmosphere lively, upbeat with accordion player singing away to German tunes for this festive Octoberfest. We sat by the bar until our table was ready,... More
