My family is of German heritage and my wife has family living in Germany, whom we hope to visit someday, so we wanted to try some real German food.
Since the owners are from Germany, I'm assuming the flavors are pretty authentic. If this is typical of the type of German food one would find in Germany, then I'll survive whenever we make our trip.
I'm an extremely picky eater. I've tried sauerkraut once before and found it disgusting, but it was canned kraut from the store, so...
I tried the plain schnitzel with the bratkartoffel (seasoned pan fried potatoes) and sauerkraut. For a Texan who loves some chicken fried steak, you cannot go wrong with schnitzel. It is most definitely NOT chicken fried steak, but if you like the steak, I don't see how you could not like the schnitzel. It was great. The bratkartoffel was oh so good. The big surprise was the sauerkraut. That stuff was so good I was topping my schnitzel and potatoes with it. For a person who is as picky as I am, that's saying something. We had apple strudel for dessert. I think it should be a rule here that you don't walk out without some strudel.
Our server left something to be desired. She was attentive and took care of everything we needed when we needed, but she was lacking in personality by a long shot. I don't know if she was just having a bad day or what, but if that's the case, she should fake a grin and at least try to act personable to her guests.
The chef was out talking to others around us and stopped at our table for a bit to comment on how well our 3 year-old daughter was acting. He was a very pleasant man, smiling and happy.
Overall, great place. Our server kept me from giving 5 stars, but she didn't keep me from returning in the future. I will be back for sure.
