Great food and atmosphere

We always enjoy eating here, it is a family owned cafe that has several German dishes as well as other European dishes to choose from. Great climate and just a good place to enjoy great food. Some of the nicest people there as well. Excellent food at good prices and you never go hungry after you... read more

This restaurant is a hidden gem. It is a Swiss resturant that we tried for breakfast the first time this Sunday. On Sunday's they have an excellent inexpensive brunch menu. Had the "Dutch eggs". Gruyere cheese over small pieces of ham over eggs and homemade toast. Yum! Will be back to try other items. Wife had a more traditional breakfast... More

In all fairness I am not a fan of German food but they offer Italian as well. My pasta and shrimp was good. My husband had the German meatloaf and absolutely loved it; his meal came with choice of sides. I also tasted a bite of a sausage dish which I thought was good. The service was very good. Our...

I went to great gardens cafe with some friends and fellow campers. First the waitress was a very nice person.a very pleasant lady. However that did not make up for the barley editable food that was served. Perhaps we were late this evening, about 6:45 (they close at 8:00). The food.looked like it.had been sitting out for a while and... More

Best part about Great Gardens Cafe is the hostess/server young woman who may also help in the kitchen, as she stayed in the kitchen until she brought out our food. She was friendly, talkative, and checked back frequently during our meal. The food was okay, but underwhelming. My friend's plate was all one color and when I asked him how... More

We just returned from Bavaria and found this very authentic. We had the jaeger schnitzel and sauerbraten. Both we very good and large portions. The side dishes were disappointing....the Brussel sprouts were not fresh but previously frozen and the sauerkraut and red cabbage were boring. I was expecting caraway seeds in the sauerkraut and something more flavorful in thcabbage. My... More

Stopped in for lunch after reading the great reviews and it did not disappoint. I ordered Patrick's Pastrami sandwich. The pastrami was delicious, tender and lean with the right amount of cornichons and mustard. My husband ordered the pork schnitzel sandwich which he raved about. It was perfectly prepared with cucumber and dressing which made a wonderful combination. The dinner... More

My wife and I stopped in the Great Gardens Café based on the reviews on TA. And we were just absolutely surprised by the friendliness of the entire staff (really a family that owns the Café), excellent food choices, reasonable prices and tasty food. You could really tell this was not a chain restaurant but a family business that really... More
