Blast from the past

Went for dinner Saturday July 4th. Had not visited for many years. It was exactly as we remembered. Old decor but clean. Working old-time juke at each table complete with all the oldies. Service was excellent. Ribs were every bit as good as in as we re-called.

We had supper here and I loved it. Located in the downtown, we had no problem parking. Our food and drinks were perfect, as was the service. Very very friendly. They have a great German, Bavarian menu, also American cuisine. The prices are great, cheaper than I expected, a nice surprise. I loved the atmosphere of the place, very Bavarian,... More

We enjoyed our food, especially the sauerkraut meatball cream soup. There is a small selection of German food on the menu. The ribs are their specialty. I would recommend this restaurant.

We were extremely disappointed by this restaurant. The service was poor, the food was inedible and they don't even serve German wine. We stopped in just as they were starting dinner service and I have nothing good to say about our experience.

Went there for the first time and fell in love. Terrific staff all around. Atmosphere is fantastic. I went at 1230 pm and missed lunch rush but did not wait long for sauerkraut meatball soup which was fabulous and then a chicken mushroom and Swiss sandwich h on a terrific bun and I had to take half home. Extremely flavorful... More

The food here was for the most part, pretty average except for the ribs. Those were really good. Take time to wander easy over to the one stall bathroom. On the way you'll see great old photos of celebrities, etc. Maybe we were just to much younger than their normal crowd.

We were looking for a place for the family to have dinner. Read the reviews and mostly above average to good. We ordered some of the German specialties and off the children's menus. One of the people in the group ordered a Chef's Salad, very disappointing; processed cheese and luncheon meat sliced up and Honey Mustard dressing (very bitter). The... More

We stopped here for lunch on a road trip through the area. The restaurant itself is relatively easy on the eyes from the inside though the outside is nothing special. We were hoping to get some good German food but if you're stopping here for lunch and you don't want to shell out $20/head (before drinks and appetizers) you should... More

Staff was friendly and polite. However, we really wanted German food. This is an American place with a few German like items on the menu. The food was not German. We had lived in Germany for many years and were expecting real German food as they tout themselves as being a German Town. If you want German food do not... More
