We ordered jaeger schnitzel, fried potatoes, and red cabbage. The schnitzel was a little chewy but delicious. The potatoes were good and the red cabbage was exceptional. It all went well with a Paulaner Oktoberfest beer!

As strange as it sounds, this German restaurant has the best fish in Huntsville! Also the deserts are not to be missed!

A wonderful dinner with fantastic service from Connor. The wait to be seated was short. The wait for our food, however, was a little long -- maybe 40 minutes or so. Worth the price.
