“A wonderful Christmas Eve lunch on the patio”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

We enjoyed a leisurely lunch outside on a sunny and warm Christmas Eve. The place was packed but the service was pretty good and everyone seemed to be in good spirits. Even though they were going to close at 3 pm it didn't feel as though they were trying to hurry us.

We enjoyed the three sausage dinner. My favorite was Opa's sausage. The red cabbage was quite good, too. The Reuben sandwich as got good reviews.

I think what made it nice was the singing entertainment. He hung out on the porch and sang a variety of music. He had a pleasing voice.

We were quite happy with our choice of restaurants.

We had a wonderful sausage plate of authentic German food. Wonderful for our first night in town. The service and price were very good. We would definitely eat here again.

“Good atmosphere and good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

This restaurant is on main street, so parking close is difficult, but it has good atmosphere, being located in one of the renovated older buildings. There is often live music and there is nice outside seating, with heaters for colder weather. There is a different menu for lunch and dinner, and the dinner menu has a limited but diverse selection. I had the pan seared trout with rice, which was very good. The only complaint by one of our group was that their very good steak was served on a cold plate. The prices are a little steep, considering no sides, salads, or bread are served with the entrees. It also took a little longer to get our food, even though it was not a particularly busy time.

“Nice atmosphere but food quality and service need improvement.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

I would like to preface my review by saying the restaurant was very understaffed on the day of my visit. So possibly this day was an exception and not the normal business operations.
Positives: The atmosphere was great. Wonderful outdoor patio to sit on and people watch. Also had live music (country music). Drinks were good and reasonably priced.
Negatives: Service was exceedingly slow. Food was marginal/average.
