“Great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

This place is under the radar. Try the filet mignon. UNREAL! Melts in your mouth. The german food is also very good. The wait staff was very nice and attentive.

“Great Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

Had dinner here with the Family. It is a nice restaurant with German and Italian Cuisine, as well as other fare. Prices are good and the portions enormous. For the vino and beer drinkers, plenty of choices there too.

“A Great German Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

Although its address is Arden, this restaurant feels like it is on the far South side of Asheville, NC. It has seven dining rooms, including an elevated outdoor patio in front. It is quiet, with plenty of space, and the windows look out on mature trees. There is a very comprehensive wine and beer list. Draft beer comes in three glass sizes, and there is a good selection of German beers. Our dinner included dark and light bread, served warm with chive butter. The potato pancakes were thin and served rolled up. The German dishes are served with a good number and variety of sides. We chose sauerkraut, sweet red cabbage, spaetzle with gravy, and German potato salad. We got excellent food at a fair price, and will certainly return the next time we get to the Asheville area.

“A bit of Germany in Asheville's mountains.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

They offer a diversified menu with German, Italian and American specialties. Service was good but not rushed. We both chose German entrees and were impressed with the authenticity of the food. We will definitely return.
