Didn't expect to find great German food in Jacksonville. Very quaint and located at the Bigham Knolls which is very scenic and great for weddings! Covered outdoor dinning

What a fun place to eat. We sat outside. The waitresses were so fun. The food was very good. The inside of the restaurant is quaint and has pictures and history of the facility from it's beginning.

I'm no expert in German food, but our meal here was excellent. We have tried German cuisine a few times in the past, and had never been particularly impressed. This was definitely the best we've had. The staff was friendly, and, most importantly, they welcomed our dog on the back patio. A great beer selection and a decent-enough wine selection.... More

It is very friendly to sit inside or outside and enjoy light supper with the complementary beer of the week (only on Wednesday, I believe). hint: check out the candy counter on the way out. Bargain macaroons. Yum!

Beautiful outdoor dining on a warm summer evening in a lovely, quiet setting; the food is great, however the service was extremely slow - although the server seemed bright and competent ant the restaurant was uncrowded, they seemed very understaffed. The Schweinebraten pork roast with dark beer glaze was excellent, the organic chicken liver pate is to die for (made... More

What is the German phrase for Al Fresco dining? I have no idea....but I can tell you that a summer patio meal at Frau Kemmlings is simply delightful. Warm professional service and an enchanting menu. Finish it all with authentic strudel brought in from the motherland...wow.

Overall the food was tasty and seemed authentic. The building and grounds are cool and give it the feel of being in Germany. We go to a hip, very long standing and very good German place in SF (Suppenkuche) and the food here was almost as good, even if a slightly different German style. My wife had the salmon and... More

We decided to try this German restaurant in Jacksonville prior to the Britt Decemberists concert last Tuesday night. What a pleasant experience even though we failed to make reservations before hand. The inside was packed but they did find a table for us outside in the beer garden area. Our waitress (Heidi) not only did a wonderful job with drinks,... More

Had to wait a bit for a table, but enjoyed our wait with some wonderful German beer in the bar area. Food was great, especially enjoyed the 'Brezel' and spaetzle!
