We ate there before watching the parade the day after Thanksgiving. Service was good a and the was OK. The deep fried sauerkraut balls were cold in the middle, but tasted good. The braised pork ribs and sauerkraut were rather bland and you only got 4 little ribs but a lot of kraut. Hamburger and... read more

This place reminded me of an old supper club that has seen better days........granted - we were there on a Monday night so it wasn't busy but to have have half of the dining room shut down with the lights off - it created an odd atmosphere. I didn't order German food so my food was just average - my... More

For a starter, my wife had the mushroom, wild rice soup which was like drinking a can of soup. She had the Schnitzel and it was thick, not thinned with a meat tenderizer, and the breading was not crispy. Her side dish was the Spätzle, which was doughy. I had the Bratwurst with warm potato salad, which was nothing special.... More

Not sure if the cook was having an off day for some of the reviewers? Every time I've been here the food has been awesome. Love the German potato salad! Lots of nice little rooms so you don't have to be right next to someone.

My wife and I deceided to try this restaurant again after a few months. The last time we ate there the food was acceptable and thought to give it another try. Not sure what happened but this time the food was horribble. Clearly nothing here is fresh made anymore. I am sure one of those food shows would have a... More

Despite the mixed reviews I've read on the VK, I thought I'd give it a try since we were going to be in town and it supposedly was known for it's German dishes. We ate lunch here on Saturday, it was not busy, service was decent but the food was horrible. My wife and I had two different German dishes,... More

Spaetzle is horrid. Schnitzel is mediocre. Red cabbage was pretty delicious though. Service friendly, but slow. Won't go here again. Not worth the price.

The sauce on the ribs are the best thing I have ever tasted! Also, make sure to get the Ray's salad, amazing!

The German food was excellent (which make sense given that this is a German restaurant), but the ribs they claim to be famous for are truly horrible. If you are tempted at least get the "German Sampler" plate which include a few ribs along with several other entrees. Service is rather poor, but I have found that to be "par... More
