Great food! Moderate prices. Good service. Excellent beer selection. German band on select nights. Definitely worth a visit if you get the chance.

Food and service were both sub-par. Food was bland, and the server was more interested in her cell phone. They were also playing TruTv garbage so loud. Won't go back.

I am not a big fan of German food, but the people were very nice and it was fun atmosphere. We will go back because we have friends that really like German food and this was pretty authentic.
