Guten Tag!

When I lived in the Hudson Valley, my next door neighbors once asked me if I liked German food. Sure! I'm German-Hungarian heritage, so I was into it. Wow. We drove about 30-40 minutes away and across the Hudson to New Paltz in the middle of the day one weekend to this log-cabin-like restaurant... read more

Everything about this place is great! Plan to wait, the place is always packed. Great food, great service, great staff, nice size portions. What more could you ask for? And, they've been around FOREVER.

We went as a group of four for dinner last week. A great appetizer is the pretzel with the cheese and mustard on the side. The sauerbraten with spaetzel and red cabbage is a must have! Although delicious, I could only finish half of my meal. I had to take the rest home to enjoy the next day. Expect it... More

We didn't like the atmosphere and didn't particularly like the food. We recently ate at 3 of the top 4 ranked restaurants in Gardiner by Tripadvisor and liked this one the least. It reminded us of a slightly upscale cafeteria. We both had Weiner Schnitzel, one chicken and one veal. My wife substituted potato pancakes for the red cabbage and... More

We lunched here at the urging of friends and locals. We ordered Hot Brown sandwiches and draft beer from the lunch menu. Delicious, fresh, hot, and a great value with generous portions. Clean and beautifully decorated like a German mountain lodge. Service was friendly, professional, and efficient. Go here!

When I arrived I was apprehensive, the exterior was plain. Once inside you see an old style German restaurant. It is an exceptionally clean (white glove) interior, including rest rooms. The food was professionally prepared. We had the Sauerbraten with dumplings & Spaetzle. I chose a German Riesling wine.(The Sauerbraten was superb and did not require a Knife to cut).... More

Nobody ever talks about great German food. They haven't eaten here. Everyone must try the Pretzel. It's made fresh and not like the kind you've had at the movies. Order the Wiener schnitzel (veal) or the same dish with chicken. Be patient, since there is a long wait. On weekends, typically over 1 hour. Parking is free.

Long time great restraint serving a large number of delicious German dishes as well as standard fare. A must "go-to-dine": location in the New Paltz area

The food here is more authentic than in some restaurants in Germany. Never have had a mediocre meal here. Service is outstanding, bar is terrific and prices are reasonable. BTW, the packed parking lot speaks for the restaurant as well.
