“Great place that keeps us coming back for many years.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013 via mobile

What can I say about my dad's favorite restaurant of all time? It's so cute and you feel like you are in Germany. The owners are very attentive and friendly. The food is very good. The place is exceptionally clean. Try it!

“Packed because if great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012 via mobile

My bf and I went here for Octoberfest. A comfy restaurant, really. We drive by it all the time and decided to taste the food my German roots have to offer. It was packed with locals, and all are having good time eating great food. The owner came around to all tables, a nice surprise. My server could have left her cell phone alone but aside from that it was a good experience. I fell asleep on way home. Full, happy tummy. This outer part of Forest Hills has been hiding this gem, go before all of NY discovers it.

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

Although the decor is very German, the food was only average. The service was rushed and practically unprofessional.

“Strudel with Schlag YA!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2012

Just as you would expect the decor to be in a restaurant in tiny town in the Alps. Family friendly with great beers on tap. The Weiner schnitzel is thin crisp and delicious. The goulash was fork tender served with spaetzle. My 15 month old son even loved it. Must try the strudel with a heaping mound of schlag. AMAZING! This is definitely going on in the rotation of frequented restaurants by the whole family.

“Great meal again!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2012

This is my second time visiting this wonderful german restaurant. Our table started off with a couple of portions of Potato Pancakes which alone would have been worth the visit. We tried the Pork Roast which was also excellent. The apple struddle for dessert was very good. Drinks were well made and the staff was friendly and very attentive. Give it a try! Prices were very reasonable and portions were large.
