Love their Brats, Sauerkraut, Red Sweet-Sour Cabbage and Skillet-roasted potatoes; many good options; for dessert their creme-brulee, Cheesecake, and Strudel are excellent; my family likes the Chocolate Salami (not necessarily my favorite); you will leave quite satisfied...also, for those that like Fish and Chips...strongly encourage you to try their rendition; must be the quality of the fish and the batter...

A work colleague of mine suggested I try The Pantry when I arrived to town, although she didn't think I would get a table as it was Valentine's Day. She was right but there was space available at the bar. I had no real expectations for what the menu would offer, but was pleasantly surprised to find some German fare.... More

The menu is full of wonderful offerings that I would like to try......guess we will have to travel through Little Rock again. But, if we do, we will get there an hour early so that we will have a place to park. One end of the building was without a tenant and still there was no parking spots in the... More

Having been to Hungary I was primed for some genuine goulash and was I ever disappointed. The entree I had was if it had been made in a Chinese restaurant next door and never been near the native country of origin. We were expecting great Eastern European food, but were sorely disappointed.

After reading the many reviews at TA my wife and I tried the Pantry on our last trip to Little Rock. My wife had the Weiner Schnitzel and pan roasted potatoes, really good and large portion. I had the Goulash Beef Stew with noodles (Spatzle), again very tasty and large portion. Saw another customer with brussels sprouts and order them... More

This was our first dining experience there and we were pleasantly surprised. This restaurant is very popular so we were glad that reservations had been made earlier this week. From the minute we walked in the door, everyone was friendly and quite attentive to our needs which will usually happen in the best restaurants which are well managed with professional... More

Everything was delicious. I heard they had German food so I stopped in. Place was busy not crowded, yet. I had a hard time deciding what to get. Flipped a coin and went with homemade bratwurst and kraut. Best ever. My buddy had the pork shoulder, WOW. I travel to Little Rock about once a month and I can't wait... More

The food was very good featuring Eastern European food choices. Service was just right with a "smart" waitress with good advise. The atmosphere was casual and price was surprisingly inexpensive. I see why the place is receiving its number one ranking in Little Rock. And I usually don't like this kind of place so worth a try even to doubters.
