The local's had nothing but good to say about this place. In the summer there is an outdoor patio which would be perfect for al fresco dining. What we experienced in December was a cute homey type restaurant with your grandma's belly filling type food. The service was great and the atmosphere was so pleasant and cozy. However, we both...

The cottage was out of the way, but not a big deal. Great scenery and atmosphere. Lunch was delicious, but small portion.

We were the only diners in the restaurant on a cold, sleeting Saturday afternoon after Christmas. Our turkey and bacon paninis were excellent and service was warm and friendly. The dining room is inviting and we were seated next to a cozy fireplace, which added to the appeal. We already had dinner reservations elsewhere that night or would have returned... More

We went with friends on a fall weekend trip. Food was great, with a variety of menu choices; roast pork, crab cakes, steak medalions, traditional German sausage plate. The soups were excellent. Charming atmosphere and friendly service. Made reservations in advance via email; it was easy and I received prompt reply. Recommend reservations as dining area is a converted living... More

The servers and owners do their best to serve as well as give you a most pleasant experience.we came back for a second meal due to the quality of the first. The location is a short drive out of Herman and yet you feel... More

After much planning for our 10 year Anniversary Dinner we were satisfied we had found just the right place. Wrong!!! We had a party of 25 guests which we were told they could accommodate. We were all Very Crowded. We were told they offer sandwiches or Burgers for the Younger guests. Nope not after 2pm. There is a children's menu... More

I know we discussed the children's menu for those under 12; I apologize if you were looking for these selections for your adult guests as well. We make every effort to see that our guests' dining experience is a pleasant one. I am sorry that we did not meet your expectations. More

This is a great restaurant and the only reason I gave it a "very good" rather than an "excellent" is because of the terrain and the drive. The restaurant was very good, very quiet, very romantic and very good food and service. The only problem was the gravel drive and rough terrain, which adds to it's ambience (secluded on a... More

We were there over the weekend in the fall, the view was beautiful and the food was amazing! Everything is fresh, local, and made from scratch. The Brunch was really good. They have a Bloody Mary Bar and many fresh choices that will make even the pickiest eater (like myself) happy. The atmosphere was quiet, pleasant, and welcoming. I will... More

Just out of Hermann is this charming small restaurant. The food is homemade comfort style with a touch of local German American and is very good. The walls are decorated with local art. The wine list is the best of local wines. The setting is in the woods. Very relaxing and worth finding.

We had a wonderful meal sitting outside under the stars. In car navigation and Yelp indicated this place was much farther (like 10 miles) out of Hermann. It's not. It's just outside the town. Keep your eyes open for the sign on the right. It's definitely worth the short drive.
