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

Had a Reuben, corn beef was very lean and they provided the requested fresh horseradish. Conveniently located right across the street from where you buy tickets for Truman home tour.

My husband and another couple celebrated my recent birthday here, quite by accident! We just happened to be in Independence on a totally unrelated reason. As we were exploring the area a bit, we came upon this German restaurant and it brought back memories of my German grandparents and the many meals I ate over the years at their home!... More

I got the schnitzel that comes with a fried egg on it and a side of spaetzle. My fiancé got the jagerschnitzel (pork schnitzel with a mushroom sauce) and a side of potatoes. Both meals very fabulous, filling, and perfect after a long day at Worlds of Fun. We shared a pineapple cake with a vanilla/coconut frosting that was not... 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

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.
