Went here last night and had a delicious meal based on relative's suggestion. Definitely make reservations. Don't worry if the lights go out! Will return on next trip.

ask for the coupons they give out with your bill for your next visit, as much as 50% off the whole bill some nights. The chopped salad is one of my favorites, as is the Wiener Schnitzel...and for dessert, the apple strudel is amazing and HUGE. Great beer selection, but not great for wines unless you like German wines.

Love this restaurant. Rachel and others behind the bar are great. Matt is always making sure the machine is well oiled. I try to make it before or after the rush because it is indeed packed. No way around it, it's in high demand. Especially in season - (If you don't want to wait, go to Fritz & Franz German... More

Went here a week ago with the family for dinner. Placed a reservation for 8 people at 7'oclock. The place was packed but our table was ready by our reservation time. We each grabbed a liter of authentic German beer (drinking from a mini boot) and had some tremendous appetizers. They brought some bread and hot pretzels to the table... More

I had always wanted to come in here, and I finally did with a gift certificate. If you have personal space issues; do not eat here. If you mind waiting for a table on a Saturday night; do not eat here. If you mind waiting with no place to sit and wait; do not eat here. All that being said;... More

For myself not ever having the occassion to eat at a german restaurant, I was surprisingly amazed by the whole experience. We dined on the two lbs of slowly cooked (6 hrs) pork shank, stuffing, and red cabbage all washed down with an approximetely 32 oz german dark draft beer contained in a mug in the shape of a boot....

We went on a Tuesday, two for one coupon. Was very busy and we sat ouside. The food was truly German, from the potato pancake to the wiener schnitzel. The spaezel, red cabbage and German potato salad were home made. The bread and the pretzels with the mustard on the side was excellent. We shared a dessert, apple strudale was... More

Found this restaurant the last day we were in Pompano Beach. Food was delicious, service was great. But we can't say anything for the beer as we weren't drinking. Definitely check them out!

The food was excellent as well as the service. Went there for lunch. Portions were more than plenty. Would I go back? Yes, indeed! Wish we would have had more time to check out their Brazilian restaurant, too. Had sauerbraten, cabbage and hot German potato salad. My gal had LARGE chicken salad. She was happy that even had fresh dill... More
