Living on it's name.

This used to be a really great place to go for good German food, but not any more. Service was slow and spotty. Food tasted and looked like it had been cooked earlier and reheated, every thing was dry and over cooked. We will not be going back.

Order the Munich Platter -- it will let you try all of their famous schnitzels and spaetzle! The decor and atmosphere is very authentic to similar restaurants in Germany and the waitstaff is extremely knowledgeable as to the vast array of German beer served.

Found this in the AAA guide and Tripadvisor and the hotel folks agreed with all the recommendations. I was raised in German food and this was as good as any I have tasted. Only thing I would change is the music, steals from the atmosphere. Bridged was a very nice waitress and the food was excellent! Would come back anytime... More

The fondue is always the winner here. Nice restaurant by Washington Square. This is in the family of the old time Portland Restaurant Der Rhinlander. Most of the food here is way to salty for me. Much more so than the food experienced in Austria or Germany. Buddy from Stuttgart likes to come to America because he likes the beer... More

There was a short wait to be seated, but it was lunch hour on a Friday. The service was great. The menu had a good selection. The food was very good. They also have a nice selection of beer on the menu. I would recommend this restaurant and will return again.
