Really good food

After growing up with German grandparents I could not wait to try this place. We come here several times a year. The warm German potato salad is almost identical to what I remember my grandmother making. Steak soup is second to none. Everything I've had here is terrific. I've never had a more... read more

Stopped in for lunch during a day trip. The complimentary rolls were a bit hard, but the meals were quite good. Bonus - they have Adam Puchta wine on the menu! Nice location in the city square.

Delicious food and delectable desserts. Restaurant is cutely decorated. It is clean. The prices are a good value for the quality. Service was acceptable. They were very busy when we were there. All of us enjoyed. Recommend highly.

My daughter and I stopped in here for dinner yesterday and I was immediately surprised by the lack of customers. The decor was nice and the staff friendly and helpful. The food is another story. While it was not bad, it wasn't good either. It was incredibly bland. Had it not been for the sauce, onion and peppers my meal... More

Awful service but waitress got $30 gratuity for party of 6. Rolls were old, food was poor quality, and everything was overpriced.

went here for lunch and the food was really good. Coming from a German heritage, I'm really picky about my sauerkraut and this was awesome! The desserts looked wonderful, though I didn't partake and the beer was cold. The original owners are from Germany and she's cooking in the kitchen and he's greeting people in the dining room.

Recommended by family so I had to stop by. Authentic dishes, freshly prepared. EXCELLENT staff. It's on my list of places to revisit if and when I get back to Independence / KC area.

Enjoyed the German food. The place is small but the food is good. On the weekend there is music provided by a couple which is very nice.

This is a restaurant off the Independence Square. Not elegant interior, but fantastic to the palate. I had a chicken with a white sauce that was smooth and memorable. Perhaps the best red cabbage I have ever tasted. A good wine list and service that was excellent. I wanted to try more entrees, but...
