We were ther with a group of 10 business persons on a very hot evening. Booking was lost. We were seated behind the entrance wall of the washing-up room. The whole evening we had the dusty smell of the trash cans with food rests.

Good standard German food, some changes on the new menu, missed Bretzel (pretzels), beer as good as always. Very friendly staff and nice outdoor seating. Very good place to come with friends and family for a hearty meal.

I took business guesst for dinner in July 2016 Very good spot for a not tourist-type place: sat outside for dinner on a warm summer evening. Waiters were very accommodating of the need fo rmore space and a bigger table, as quests arrived. Food di dnot arrive fast, but in my view that is a good thing. Waiters very friendly.... More

I visited around 6 times with friends or family. They offer really tatsty beers they brewed by themselves. The restaurant is very spacious with various sets of tables for different occasions and groups and it is located under their hotel. They also open outside tables in small garden. In general the food is yummy but not that special, with resonable... More

I have heard through the grapevine that the food is average, the beers are good but the service is usually unfriendly. This is the impression many friends have. We only ordered 1 dish which was chicken wings and I was surprised at how big the dish was and how delicious it tasted. The beer choice was unique and they had... More

The buffet meal is excellent, especially the fish and the dessert. I never try meat, pork, and brewed drink

I like to come here for a good meal and nice beer. The restaurant is famous for beer that they make themselves in their own small brewery. In the summer, you can also sit outside. They offer buffet every day at lunch time and special buffet offers for Christmas, Easter, Mother´s Day. The waiters are very friendly. The only negative... More

Old fashioned German food, nice atmosphere with self-brewed beer (which you can buy in a vintage bottle and take home and have it refilled for charge). So +++ on the atmosphere, but food is more average.
