My wife and I ate here the other week, and we really enjoyed it. The food was very good. We don't know a lot about German food, but we thought it was excellent. I would NOT take kids here unless they love German food and behave like the von Trapps.

Our server was so very polite and helpful. It seems this time around the food didn't taste as authentic as before. We've been to Germany... More

Been coming here since 2004 and it constantly amazes us the quality of its food and old charm ambience. If you want game food, this is the place to have it. The chef knows how to prepare it. The reason we love this place is because of its authentic German food. Reminds us so much of our Bavarian life of... More

They offer a great variety of German dishes at a reasonable price. Nice selection of German beers, too. The servers are friendly and knowledgable. Owner is German which helps. Veal and pork are always tender and juicy. Brats are tasty. Sides are authentic - red cabbage, spaetzle, etc...

15 years ago I bragged about this place to the owner of a restaurant IN GERMANY. Last night I had Jaegerschnitzel that probably came off the Sysco truck. I can never go back, now. It's just so sad.

The food wasn't all that special and the staff didn't know a word of German. The expectation didn't measure up to the experience. For the price I expected more.

Great place for a special occasion. It's a little pricey. Food is excellent and service very good. The menu is a great selection of authentic German food. I love the Jaeger Schnitzel and Spaetzle!
