First time eating German food.

Our server was very prompt, friendly, helpful and we didn't want for anything. The food was very good, since I've never had it before all I can go off of is taste. And everyones food at the table was good, we all tried everything at the table was very tasty. One of the ladies at the table has been... read more

We visited on a weekend and had about a 45 minute wait (no reservations on the weekend) to get seated. Most of our party had traditional German fare and loved it. Service was good but the waiter could have been more attentive. We never did get our salads but our bill was credited.

Great food and the selection of beer is impressive. Fine place to take 'out of town' guests for a unique experience and a taste of German Heritage. The wait staff is energetic and accurate. Ask for Emily. Proud to see a complementary match between a wonderful business and this old architecturally detailed structure.

Well-decorated place with excellent service and very good German food. I ordered something with beef in it (sautenbrat?) and it was decent. The sides were really good, I like the German fries in particular which are a nice and less fried substitute for french fries. I tried some of the brats and they were excellent. I haven't been to many... More

I stopped here for lunch while visiting Evansville. I sat at the bar with a bunch of people who seemed to be regulars. The beer was reasonably priced and a large selection. The food was excellent. I would love to go back again.

Decided to stop by this location on a Monday. Expecting a dead night, this place was hopping. The waitress was perfect, even though really busy. The beers were great...and always get the fish bowl size beer. The small mug is a few sips for a beer drinker. The food was perfect and I was not bloated from the portion size.... More

I love this place. It was once an old hardware store, and now turned into a great German restaurant. Good food, and plenty of cold beers on tap. Good atmosphere, and the staff is very friendly. My favorite food is the pork tenderloin sandwich. The only reason I don't give it a five is because of the sauerkraut balls. They... More

Love the general feel and atmosphere. High ceilings, old marred wood, and lots of beer taps. The menu said the Ruben was a favorite. Humph... Let me preface any further comments with saying I HATE a sandwich with soggy bread. And that is what I got. So first impressions were not good. Oh sat at the bar and did get... More

We tried the combo platter and it was good. Lots of beers to choose from. It doesn't seem to have a lot of good restaurants around. We picked this one and it was good. And its a cool place to sit and look around.
