Best reuben I've ever had

Amazing food and really friendly service. Waitress was great and obviously proud to work there. When we mentioned we stopped because they are #1 on trip advisor, she proudly told us about their amazing chef and how much she enjoys working there.

We had excellent service and food and the wait staff was very friendly. The Bloody Mary and deserts were awesome as well. Thought the bar area was very small especially if there was a wait time, luckily we didn't have a wait. We sat and visited with the other couple that we met their and there was no push to... More

Busy Sunday a.m., were told 30 minute wait, it was 25 and worth the wait. Service was excellent- water and coffee were kept filled, food was hot and delicious, and staff friendly and attentive. Their pancakes are wonderful, omelettes fluffy, and the 'armeggedon' deliciously decadent. Only one downside, next time will ask for dry toast.

The service here was phenomenal. They pay attention to the details from welcoming you to your table with your name placed on it, to never letting your water glass get below half full, to insisting on boxing your food for you instead of letting you do it yourself! We both ordered German dishes off the menu that came with a... More

I got a burger it was good with a sprecher root beer. The waitress took a while to get to our table to take our order. Nice place. Maybe I'd try it again.

My wife and I and our son home from college for the weekend. Arrived at 5pm on a Sat night and were seated right away. I ordered a bottle of... More

Who would have thought that in West Bend WI you would find a restaurant with amazing food and amazing people ( patrons and owner). Delious lightly battered cod, amazing German potato salad, fresh bread and a grasshopper pie. Might seem pedestrian food to some, but having dined around the world, this food was truly authentic in freshness and flavor. Not... More

I'm learning fast that Wisconsin is all about hearty food inspired by the German or eastern Euro heritage. This place in small town America is just that: Comfort food that is well done. Menu is unashamed to list a "heart attack" burger and belly busters for breakfast. I had a Reuben on pumpernickel. It was fine!

We just finished dining with another couple and the food was awesome. We started out with the German appetizer plate. The serving was more than enough for four people. The main entrees were equally great and more than we could eat. Service was excellent. We will definitely dine here again.
