The food and service are consistently good. We have been there several times, and are always trying new dishes. The staff is pleasant and accommodating. I can't think of one negative thing about this restaurant.

The restaurant feels like a TRAILER somehow. It is not - it is a small space but not a trailer. But the old stained ceiling, the wood paneling, and the dingy floor just feel TRAILER-ish, not restaurant-ish. Add to that the many dead animal heads and skins on the wall, all of which seemed at least 30 years old, and... More

We had a great lunch here with lovely service. As I'm half German, my BF and I adore hitting all the German restaurants in our area. This one did not disappoint. We arrived at opening time on a weekday and were immediately greeted by a friendly waitress. She was most delightful to interact with throughout our entire meal. We started... More

Visited with a German friend, who lost his flip flop to a floor sticky as glue. Worrisome from the start. Neither of us enjoyed the food, which was a bit pricy. Never been back, either of us.

At this place, it's all about the food. The menu boasts several varieties of Schnitzel and some polish delights such as pierogies and cabbage rolls. They also serve a delicious bread with a cheese spread and offer a couple of soup choices with every meal. The pricing is reasonable. The service is great.

We were very happy to have found this restaurant! It's a very small family owned place. The schnitzel was some of the best that we have had here in the US. We have traveled to Germany and Austria several times, and thought the food here was right on par with what we have had in Germany. We stopped in for... More

This is a small but good family run restaurant. They had many schnitzels, but I went for the Saurbraten. The place is about 8 tables in one room and two in another. We were there about 5 pm before the main dinner crowd, we were one of two parties there. I would think reservations would be needed for later as... More

Schnitzel is the word here. The have other items available, but this is the reason to go. If you've never had schnitzel, this is a great place to have your first experience in Florida. The restaurant is small, with maybe 12 tables, so a reservation is highly recommended. Decor is very old world (see photo), with a hunting lodge feel... More

This restaurant was right across the street from the hotel we were staying and we were intrigued and decided to try it out. The decor is interesting, lots of deer heads, animal skins and antlers but comfortable and clean. The server we had was excellent. We had never had schnitzel before so we didn't know what to expect. We had... More
