Great authentic German

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

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 french fries were very good.... 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

I was in New Ulm for this year's Oktoberfest festivities and had read and heard great things about this restaurant. I must preface the next comments with, I spent 14 years living in Italy and spent a lot of time in Germany and Austria. I ordered the Wiener Schnitzel and was shocked at what was placed in front of me.... More

I love this place for Lunch and Dinner. Be sure to have the Ray's Salad with your meal. The Easig Kraut luncheon special on Thursday's is a free treat.
