I don't know much about German food, but this seemed pretty authentic to me. Our waitress was friendly and efficient. The decor and live music made for a fun atmosphere. If you're a beef drinker, this is the place for you! We had potato pancakes, potato soup and the mixed sausage platter to... read more

We have been driving south (45 miles) to Old Heidelberg for nearly twenty years when we want to enjoy a special evening. This is the benchmark I use for other German cuisine restaurants and only one in Pittsburgh, PA comes close. Great food, beer selection, service, and ambiance. We have never had a bad meal or bad service. So many... More

Way overpriced for sub-par food and terrible service. Potato salad was served cold, not hot like german potato salad should be. Honestly I've had better german food at from tents at Oktoberfests. Service was friendly but didn't make up for her lack of menu knowledge or any sense of urgency. Just an example- I asked for a refill on water... More

Not good at all. Bread was stale, saurbraten was leftovers. The only good thing, the beer. I have never given food a bad review, but this place was terrible.

We visited for family birthday dinner. The service was outstanding, our server went beyond normal service and it made the experience that much enjoyable. All of the dishes were excellent. My wife and brother in law ordered a Pork Shank plate and it was unbelievable. I wish I ordered it. Next time. Highly recommend for large or small family outings.

The Food here was really tasty. It was strange to find a Bavarian restaurant in USA but I enjoy the music, decoration and beers! I liked the potato soup very much! Thank you Vidya from Crowne Plaza For recommending me this restaurant!

Loved it! Have been numerous times. If you have been to Germany, TDY or PCS, this is a great place. After a pull on your beir, you expect to see people from your crew, shop or unit sitting at the the table and are a little disappointment when they are not. Really good food. Also my 4 year old grandson... More

Came to Dania Beach for a weekend getaway and my husband was wondering if this restaurant still exist. Last time he came here was 25 years ago. Needless to say, best German / Bavarian food. We got the German potato soup, cabbage and pork soup, beef goulash, weisswurst, spatzel, red cabbage, mash potatoes, New York strip , potato pancakes with... More

We have eaten at this establishment three different times in the past few years while on vacation. The portions were large and the food was excellent each time. The service was good and there was wasn't a long wait for our food to come. There was even entertainment on Thursday night. Definitely try this restaurant.
