We had a great lunch at Vetter's. Authentic German cuisine and venue! Fair pricing. Would definitely visit again. They have menus available in English and in German and our waitress was bilingual, which made our time even better.

A lovely traditional German restaurant/ bar. The pork knuckle (as others have commented) was excellent. Great beer too
