Tasty lunch

Came on a Wednesday afternoon nearly 1:30, so not busy. Greeted promptly and specials reviewed. We decided to order the roast pork special and it was very good. Pork was tender, sauerkraut different than I'm used to but tasty, dumplings different again but good, and gravy. Server attentive.

When traveling sometimes you never know what you are going to get??? This restaurant has never let me down. They are a true "family" owned establishment. They are always serving up something new and authentic. They listen to their customers and it goes straight to the top. When I have had food served that I was unfamiliar with but had... More

Ever since Little Gretel opened, we have made a happy practice of having breakfast with friends after church on Sundays. Dinners are always wonderful, but special occasion dinners are just spectacular. We have never been disappointed!

We have been to Little Gretel several times. We have been very pleased every time, the food is wonderful. The staff is very pleasant and the atmosphere is great. Authentic German and Czechoslovakian food. Very clean restaurant and they have an outdoor patio that's great in the summer. They serve several European beers also. Did I mention the desserts, they...

This morning was glorious (got up into the high 70's at the end of January), so Dr. Susan and I (along with Prada the dog) intended to grab a pastry at Smittyville and then spend an hour or so at the county park on Joshua Creek. Smittyville was closed (due to the death of Mr. Smith), so we went on... More

Little Gretel has the best brunch in town. The service is great, friendly and helpful with recommendations. My husband tried a recommended dish he'd never had before and loved it. I came in wanting pancakes -- and wasn't disappointed! Fluffy, perfect serving size. Our new go-to restaurant!

We were expecting a really good genuine German meal at this restaurant, unfortunately, that isn't what we got. We have lived in Germany, so we know what Schnitzel is supposed to look/taste like. We both ordered different types, Jaeger and Rahm (sp?) It took quite a while to come to the table, but we don't mind waiting for good food.... More
