If you think you know what German food is, that is a good place to go. The jaeger schnitzel was tasty even though the portion was too much. Schnitzel is not something you can reheat the next day so I would much rather have something...More

Great food, with large portions. Plan to spend a little time waiting for your food as everything is cooked to order and it takes a bit. We went with a group from work and everyone loved it. Got bratwurst and pretzel apps to share with...More
