I tried the lunch special with stuffed cabbage and mashed potatoes. The stuffed cabbage was cold on the inside and the mashed potatoes tasted like they came straight from a box. I was also surprised that sodas were $2.75, as the restaurant isn't very nice. The decor is fake flowers,etc... Won't be back.

Went with other couples. It could have been a much better experience. The server was not attentive....we hardly saw her. The bill was all wrong & took forever to fix. The music was loud so you could barely talk to the person next to you let alone those across the table. The food was just OK but not nearly as... More

Very loud music, impossible to talk or hold a conversation. Difficult to ask questions about menu to waitress who said water cost $10. Also we never got a refill or an offer of refill. You have to request ice with ice tea. Food was ok to fair but I think overpriced. We were three couples and requested three separate checks.... More

Some of us got dinners 2 hours after arrival! Kudos to the pizza place down the street! At least I didn't starve! Should have made an announcement that we all got free dinners! They served tables by order of arrival and didn't give us rolls for 1.5 hours!

Dropped in today for lunch; been wanting to try this restaurant for a very long time, not worth the wait. Schnitzel small, thick, greasy, and overdone; German potato salad cold and tasted old, spaetzel cold as was the gravy on top of it; however, the Black Forest cake was delicious -- highly recommend you drop in for wine, atmosphere, and...

An out of the ordinary stroll down a culinary ethnic trail, the proprietors, atmosphere and food are authentic. Food is good quality but doesn't quite justify the prices though. Service is fantastic and overall dining experience was most enjoyable. Very nice change of pace for something out of the ordinary.

We both got the wiener schnitzel, based on reviews. But it was much thicker than authentic, and the spaetzel and red cabbage were both just bland. The live music was deafening when we arrived, but quieted down when they switched to recorded music. The weirdest thing was our experience with the wine. They have an extremely limited selection. We asked... More

The food was delicious! My friend and I had the lemon schnitzel. The waitress was friendly. We went at a time when there were only a few customers. We waited a long time for our meal. Made us wonder what it would be like if they were busy?
