“Best German Cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

If you like authentic German food this is the place for you. If you have never had German food, then you definitely have to stop in and enjoy homemade German Cuisine. This place has been noted as the best German food in the Central Florida region. I have to say, even if you just "like" the food the live German band and the energy of the regulars are well worth showing up for in itself. They also have more authentic German beer than you can count and if your really thirsty they have the BOOT, this is not for the faint of heart. I don't remember the ounces of beer it holds but its meant for at least 4 people to share, since when you order it, its not allowed to touch the table and it gets passed around. Its kinda neat. They also make their own wurst's, you name it, they make it. So, make it a Willow Tree night and enjoy some German beer and Wurst's. Oye Oye Oye!! That'll make sense later if you go.

“Always fresh and fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

I've been eating here for years and have never had a bad experience. My favorite items here are the trio salad, the sausage sampler platter, the coffee and most of the desserts! As long as its not in the middle of a heat wave, sitting outside is the way to go, especially at night, since the live music is loud, but very entertaining. If you are a drinker the beers are plentiful and the schnapps is ever flowing with selections there.

“Perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Really great food. I try to stop here every time I'm in the area and have dinner on the patio. Food is always hot and delicious. There is a decent wine selection and prices are very reasonable.

“Excellent food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Always great food and great service! Never disappointing!! They are well known for their authentic German cuisine. Get there early so you don't have to wait for a table. Best time is when weather is nice sit on the patio.
