Two of our party got the schnitzel sandwich. The child plate of chicken tenders and fries was bland but generously portioned and cooked correctly (not greasy or underdone).
The best thing was we got seated and served quickly even though it was busy and a festival day. We got window seats and enjoyed the festival view, which occupied the toddler immensely. This makes eating out doable with a four-year-old. Not many Leavenworth eateries have a good window seat low enough for a child. This is good to know. Why don't they offer mac-n-cheese, which is all picky eaters will eat??? This would help me want to go back with my picky eater.
The sandwiches were not that great. The pounded and fried meat was, again, cooked quite well but a bit bland. The sauerkraut was, to me, very intensely flavored with fennel seed. I wished they had it written in the menu that it was fennel sauerkraut because my husband is NOT a fan! So he had none of it. The potato salad was also very strongly flavored with an herb. Now I like vinegar and herb flavors, so I enjoyed the kraut and salad! The bread was okay. I would eat there again if I wanted those flavors.
I felt it was superior in flavor to lunch at Andreas Keller. Keller has a nicer atmosphere, in terms of German decor and finer dishes, glassware, and flatware.
For me, when I eat out, I don't like places that use cheap tables, chairs, and plastic everything. It feels tacky.
If I could get them to improve the decor, the flatware and glassware, the music, and to season their food with just a little paprika, then I think we'd be happy. The servers didn't offer our child a coloring page, which I didn't notice until we left. But the service was adequate, just not "special" like it should be in a special place, like Leavenworth.
