Had to make a reservation but we were only ones in there. No AC, bartender was waitress, and food was mediocre, small portions. Thought we were getting good German food, HA!

We had a Monday night special which was salad, prime-rib dip sandwich and fries. The fries were eatable but limp. Special also came with coffee-cake. The price was right ($12) and the food was tasty.

After reading reviews for this restaurant I was so looking forward to my dinner. Terrible is all I can say. Jäger schnitzel greasy and tough. No mushroom gravy? My husband had the chicken and it was dried out also. Menu said it came with garlic mashed potatoes. No it came with some sort of carrot mash. Like I said hopefully... More

Delicious menu includes contemporary American and German. I had the Jagerschnitzel with mushroom gravy and it was fantastic! The restaurant has a full bar, and a nice view out over the Russian River. Outside seating is available in warm weather. Would definitely recommend for dinner!

The view is pleasantly relaxing. The place is ultra-clean and the food is above and beyond delicious. Patrons have a choice of sitting outside watching the Russian River flow or inside in spectacular cleanliness enjoying the best German food this side of Germany. The staff is efficient and helpful. It all adds up to a marvelous experience.

The staff is very friendly and food was amazing. The space was awesome for the inside and outside views. Perfect place for events and family get togethers. The bar was a tad high but thats what happens when you are not home.

Such a pretty little place. We sat right by the window with a lovely view of the river and an array of ducks in the water. This is a place I'd like to stay at, it's been remodeled and tastefully so. They managed to keep the charm and history but still give it a new and more modern feel. Staff... More
