“Great Traditional German Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012 via mobile

This is a great place to get traditional German comfort food! The atmosphere is also very traditional (I'm guessing they haven't changed much since opening in the seventies.) My husband and I both ordered schnitzel dishes. I had the chicken and he got a sampler platter which included the veal, chicken cordon bleu and sausage. We were way too full to order dessert, but their pies in the display case looked delicious! We definitely recommend skipping all the chains and heading here while you are visiting Huntsville.

“Love the cumcumber salad!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

We go here for special ocassions like birthday's and anniversaries. We get the Schnitzel Cordon Blue. The fried potatos are wonderful as is the great assortment of breads they bring to the table. Don't forget the desserts!

“Outstanding Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

This is one of our favorite restaurants. We have tried almost everything on the menu and love it. The desserts are super too. Try the chicken Berlin or any of their fish dishes of the day.

“Terrific!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2012

Who thought you can find an authentic German restaurant in Huntsville, Alabama? Great, quick service. Terrific food and amazing variety. You don't need to be familiar with German food to appreciate this place- if you like any type of meat, potatoes, and cold beer with names you can't pronounce, come here instead of Chili's or Applebees!!
