“Good Beer, Better Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

I have been here twice in the last 6 weeks. Was recommended as a place to go while in Dortmund Germany. The beer is very good, but is served a little warm for my taste (typical German way though). The food that we ordered was spectacular! We had a sampler plate for the table. Had fresh baked pretzels that were great. The German style is to eat them with butter, so we had to ask for mustard, but the mustard was the best I have ever had. The sampler platter included blood sausage, bratwurst, leberkase, and pig knuckles. All the sausages were top notch and the pig knuckles were very good too. Obviously we had saurkraut and spaetzle along with fried potatoes. Someone in the party ordered Schnitzel, which was very good as well. My favorite item was the leberkase............If you are in Dortmund, give it a try, you will not be disappointed.
