Sehr Gut (very good)

Having lived in a small village near Munich for three years, my wife and i have an affinity for good Bavarian food - this place has it!!! Very unassuming from the outside, this place had a "pubby" feel on the inside. I had the Wiener Schnitzel with Spaetzel. Both were wunderbar. I will be back

Our friends recently took us to Checkers for dinner, telling us it was some of the best German food they've ever had. They were right. Our meal was wonderful, the ambiance of the place is warm and cozy and the wait staff efficient and friendly. The portions were generous and the food delicious. Our only problem was deciding what to... More

The food is authentic German. The beer is purely German. Even the Beck's is imported. For best results, check coupons in the Sun Sentinel and make a reservation!

8 of us had dinner on a Friday evening. We had reservations and I would suggest you always make a reservation. This place is packed and for a reason. The prices are amazing given the quality and quantity of delicious food. From appetizers to dessert everything is mouth watering. We had the wienerschnitzel and the sauerbraten and both were excellent.... More

We have dined at Checkers several times, but never on a Saturday evening. Take our advice - don't. We were rushed through our meal at a pace that gave us all indigestion. We had reservations for 6:30, and arrived to find an already crowded restaurant. Our older waitress rushed over to take our orders and was obviously impatient when we... More

Amazing beer selection (real German beer at a good price), the food is amazing (and lots of it), including the homemade deserts. The staff is courteous and plain fun. The owner is a pretty nice guy too, and is there most nights. Try to Drink one of each beer they got so you can have your own mug and a... More

We loved this place! They have great German beer selections and a few craft beers on tap. We ordered the sausage platter and it was divine. We sat at the bar and enjoyed our conversation with the bartender. We would definitely go back.

Back again for a repeat visit. I loved the bread plate they placed at our table...complete with c cut up pretzel and mustard! Our party of four each enjoyed a different entree but shared the potato pancake appetizers which you should not miss. Excellent beer and wine selection. If you can't make up your mind on an entree, try the... More
