Not fantastic but good

Had dinner here tonight. The potato dumplings could be much better. All of our schnitzel dishes were very good, bit the jaeger gravy was bland and lacking depth. Atmosphere is nice, and our server, Sabrina was cute, efficient, and cordial.

I brought my son to this restaurant because he was born in Germany while I was stationed there with the military. I wanted him to get a feel for the place where he was born. It couldn’t have been any better. The inside of the place was just like a true German restaurant in Germany. I told him we were... More

This an awesome German restaurant. Very authentic. We were staying in Orlando and this place is well worth the 2 hour drive. The desserts are very good as well

Best pork schnitzel and spaetzle. Ate the delicious potato pancakes, they were light and seasoned perfectly. Dined twice in a month. Excellent service. Tried to go last year, some difficulties with reservations. You're so friendly when you dine, try to be that friendly with your reservations message. So very glad we tried this year. Patrons leaving, all thank and kiss... More

On a lark my buddy and I decided to try this local restaurant for some local flavor in Holiday. The hostess was nice enough to give us a table since reservations are clearly the way to go. The restaurant is an authentic family restaurant. It was easy to see that a lot of pride went into decorating this homey hot... More

Excellent food, warm surroundings, and good menu! Has a real old world feel. Food is made by owner and you are warmly greeted by Dagmar, his wife and co-owner. Its just like eating in grandmas dining room!
