Great place to meet with out of town friends if they like German food, and those who don't. Try the potato pancakes and the pretzel bits, the Bahama momma spicy but yummy! Great for dinner or lunch. Fab cream puffs the best!!!!!!!

I think this is a nice place for the area. When compared with other German restaurants that we have tried, it is on-par. There was quite a wait (over an hour) when we went which I've heard is normal around dinner time. For Columbus I'd say it's four stars; in general I consider it average. The Bahama Mama is a...

We had an hour and a half wait, and unfortunately no where to stand. I realize that is part of a tourist restaurant, and I don't ever mind waiting, but where? Other patrons around me were complaining, so it was kind of negative, and we seemed to block the servers, and had to keep moving out of the way, I... More

I have eaten here twice with clients. It's a great local place with fantastic food. Both times, my clients and I opted for the German buffet. The price is right and the food is excellent quality for a buffet. I live only 30 minutes from this restaurant but I have clients six hours away that always ask me to bring... More

We go here a few times a year. Mostly do the buffet. But sometimes I get the cabbage rolls or a Bahama Mamma. Both delicious. And I can't leave without a cream puff which I usually get to go because I am too full to enjoy it at the restaurant. The service is good.

Okay..this place is a find. Good food and service. The cream puff out of a dream. I had chocolate. If you like mousse...don't pass up even though a bit fattening. Must if visiting Columbus...not to mention cute little German village are with cobblestone streets.
