“Best German Food !!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

Small funky German bar, with a friendly atomsphere, great beer selection, and THE BEST GERMAN FOOD YOU CAN GET ANYWHERE, and I mean it !!! The only drawback was that it took a really long time to get our order. But it was definltely worth it.

Very good German bread served with our order. The veal bratwurst, salad, sauerkraut, German fried potatoes, and pork schnitzel were all EXCELLENT. The cook here really, really knows what he/she is going. I will definitely be back !!!

“Best German bar in the city!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2009

You really can't beat the food. Try any of the schnitzels or bratwursts and I've never had better potato salad. They also have so many German beers that it will takes months to try all of them. The beer garden is awesome!

“Love this place, Turkey...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2008

Love this place, Turkey schnitzel a la baden baden is my favorite. Lots of good German beer on tap. Great outdoor patio in the summer.

“Never go back!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2006

Couldn't be more DISSAPPOINTED, after earlier reviews. Tho food priced ok, was WORST German food I've eaten. Jaegerschnitzel was like a flat brick pancake (God knows what mystery meat was under breading). Kessler Rib ok, but oddly for main course didn't include soup or salad. Only potato option for both was Fried Potatoes. Couldn't even 'upgrade' to 'famous' Potato Pancakes even for $1-$2 extra. Instead, you must pay $7.95 EXTRA (given quality of other food, wouldn't waste $). Adding insult to injury, tho huge Beer selection -- BIGGEST RIPOFF ever. Bottled Weiss $6.50. Draft beer an outrageous $6.00 for .5L mug a/k/a Pint. Never paid so much for beer in my life! Finally, no dining room to speak of -- perhaps 6 or 7 cramped tables along the Bar. Entire 'dining room' is SMOKING -- and, uugh, one creep lit up a camel-dung Stogie capped it all off nicely. Never go back!
