The food was authentic and delicious. Our server, dressed in traditional German garb, was very knowledgeable about the menu and the beer menu. My husband, a beer lover, didn't like his first choice but was very happy with the next. It was a perfect compliment for his sausage. I had the Wiener schnitzel which I loved. The salad and dessert... More

Wow. I didn't know about this place until I was trying to get away from a terrible storm. Transformers were blowing around me and this was the closest place I could find that looked safe. Turns out, the food is amazing. I had the veal cordon blu schnitzel and a black lager from a local brewery. Even after the storm... More

The food and atmosphere are authentic German. The food is very good, but be prepared to pay for that. We drove several hours to eat here and were not disappointed.

Good food. Cozy atmosphere. Low lighting. Plenty of German touches. The wait staff even wear costumes. The potato salad was worth writing home about. I enjoyed my toasted Reuben sandwich and the sausage sampler appetizer.

The lighting is low and the food is to die for. We (as a family and as a couple) eat there often. Birthdays and anniversaries are always celebrated here, I had a paper menu that I marked off so that I have tried every schnitzel they have. I cannot pick a favorite but do recommend the veal Marcella or the... More

Restaurant was authentic German food. Large portions, reasonably priced. The desert was so large that 4 of us shared it.

I spent five years living in Germany and have missed the great food. Traveled recently to Huntsville and found this place. The weiner schnitzel was spot on - tender and just the right amount of crispness. We also enjoyed the cucumber salad (delicious), red cabbage (delicious), German fries (very good), and spaetzle (the real deal!). This place is definitely on... More

Nice restaurant, friendly staff and excellent food, what else can you ask for?! Good German beer selection, even better food (we had the rouladen and one of their schnitzles), and save room for dessert.
