“Won't disappoint. Good food, decent prices.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

I've been here a few times, and though I would not term it as outstanding, it also has never disappointed.

They do a good job with German-style food. It is always flavorful, with generous portions. There are good sides: the pretzels with mustard are very nice, and the bread dipped in pesto fondue is excellent as well. The food is somewhat heavy, but not bland.

They also have a nice selection of German beers, which match the food well.

Service is good, and generally attentive. Prices are fine without being a great value. Atmosphere is Americanized chalet style, but clean and unobtrusive.

“Excellent selection of German beers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

The selection of German beers on tap is excellent. The giant pretzels with mustard are a wonderful paring. Other good items are menu are the crab fondue and leg of lamb. The German dishes vary between very good and "fast food version".

“Good German food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

I have been here a number of times, both for lunch and dinner. The food is authentic German food and, though not low on calories, it is very good.

“Almost like being in Munich ...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

We had dinner here on a Saturday night in early February while visiting friends in the area. This appears to be a popular destination and the wait for a party of 4 was about 35 minutes. The food was quite good and reasonably authentic (I was indecisive so tried one of their "feast" sampler plates and it was all tasty), the fondue & pretzel appetizer is excellent, they have a decent selection of German beers and wine, and the staff was friendly and attentive.

“great german food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

with the eddelwiess gone, this is a close second, great food and service every time, a bit spendy for the portions though.
