Love their family friendly atmosphere, their salad bar is great.. lots of choices and their food is delicious. Really anything on their menu is great. Good place for large groups. In good, warm weather they have a nice seating area outdoors as well. Nice go- to place.

The schnitzel was tasteless and chewy, i felt like i was chewing my dogs rubber toy. i gave the leftovers to my dog and he’s also disgusted, he doesn’t look at me the same now because i feed him that schnitzel. i don’t recommend this place.

The food here is all about massive sizes. The käsespätzle is some of the best I've ever had and the steaks aren't too bad but don't come here if your looking for exceptional taste. The portion sizes are mind blowing.

My second time here and the food was even better. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Please come with an appetite because the portions are huge. This was my girls first time in Germany and she really enjoyed the food. Another good thing is its literally a 2-3 minute drive outside of the main Ramstein gate. Enjoy!

The portions at this place are crazy big! The hamburger is literally the size of the plate. It makes for a great picture and fun to post on FB, but the taste leaves a lot to be desired. Our family felt that the portions were much too big and that the size was the focus rather than the taste. We... More

The portions were ridiculous! The budget was seriously 10" and that was a half portion. The don't like if you share amongst adults, but are okay if you share with kids. The steaks on the stone were near, but inconsistent in quality. Mine was great, husbands - meh. The spaghetti for the kid was meh too, but salad bar was... More

It's really just okay food. The allure with this establishment seems to be the unbelievable portion sizes. I recommend going once, just to check it out.
