It doesn't get any better than this!!!!

My husband and I went to The German Restaurant for dinner on February 13th....we wanted to beat the Valentine rush. This was the first time we had ever gone there....but it will certainly not be the last. We both started with the liver dumpling soup....and it was as good as what my Mom used to... read 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!

Restaurant was full when we went in without a reservation. Owner accommodated us. German dishes were awesome and very authentic. House salad was bland and broccoli was overcooked. Would definitely go back.

My husband & I have been to this restaurant several times and had a wonderful meal each time. This time we decided to bring 7 friends to try German food and lively music. We all had a terrific experience. They serve pork shank when there is music playing and we enjoyed them. They make outstanding pork schnitzel and wienerschnitzel. Trout... More

We've been wanting to go here for years but just never made it in. We finally stopped in and were pleasantly surprised. The food and service were both very good. It's a little pricey, but definitely worth a try if you've never been.

Charming and home style German restaurant The shnitzel is amazing as are the crispy pancakes. We got the sampler plate to for the two of us and a side of the potato pancakes and it was the perfect amount of food. Recommended! Sadly didn't have room for the Black Forest cake hopefully next time

One of the things that definitely excites and inspires me are restaurants featuring authentic global cuisine where I can sit down, enjoy a meal as it would be in that country, and instantly transport myself to another part of the world. I want it as authentic as possible and with hopefully a good showing of patrons from that region dining... More

After living in the area for 10 years, we finally decided to try this place. To their credit, they did have a large group (Maybe 20), who ordered right ahead of us. This made food and service really slow. But..... We looked at the menu ahead of time. We had decided to order the German sampler platter, wanting to taste... More

My wife insisted that we visit the German Restaurant. Boy am I glad that I listen to my wife! The food, staff and atmosphere were absolutely perfect. I completely over ate because I couldn't stop eating all the delicious food. The owner was very friendly and was hugging all the 'regulars'. Highly recommend that you make a reservation because this... More
