Glad we stopped!

The great thing is, it has it's own parking, so no need to pay to park at one of the public pay lots! We shared the Dinner portion of the "Wurst Platter" which included a wonderful salad that consisted simply of cucumber, red onion, and a blend of greens with a most tasty dressing. We also had a... read more

As my wife and I had been stationed in Germany, we had an idea what the food should taste like. Understanding each area of the country(Germany) offers foods cooked in various ways. We arrived to a delightful atmosphere. The bar area and restaurant was typical, German. CLEAN!!! The staff was very friendly, and helped us a bit with our very... More

Probably best German food in the east. Great service!! Love the sauerbraten, so good. A bit pricey but what good food isn't anymore.

Really enjoyed the food and the great service. We did walk in on karaoke night apparently so it was a bit loud for a family with kids and a baby. We had the Dinner for two sampler which had schnitzel and etc. It was really good. We will definitely come here again.

Super friendly staff!! Waiter Matt was very informative and made great suggestions. Get house dressing on salad. It is made in house and is awesome. Authentic German food at its best.

Do yourself a favor and order the Jaeger Schnitzel. It will blow your mind! My wife ordered the strip steak and it was slightly undercooked but overall very good. But really, order the Jaeger Schnitzel. You will not be disappointed.

The food was wonderful and the service was excellent. Pricey for dinner but well worth it. The homemade salad dressing on the house salad is to die for

Great place to go out for dinner! The service was excellent and the food very good. The atmosphere was pleasant. My wife had the sauerbraten and I had the 3 sausage plate. She was pleased with her dish although I found the meat to be dry. I liked 2 of the 3 sausages 0n my plate. The meals came with... More

We arrived after 3pm and wanted to order from the lunch menu. The chef said "if you want lunch I make you lunch". My husband and I had the chef's schnitzel. It was delicious. My sons had the bbq ribs and the rueben. Cleaned their plates and ate some of mine. The salad with yogurt dill dressing was excellent. Both... More
