This small intimate restaurant is the perfect stop if you love German food. Good hearty portions and friendly service. Food was delicious. Best potato pancakes ever!

Great Schnitzel and potato pancakes almost as good as my grandma’s. The bratwurst was as excellent as well. We have enjoyed every visit and Heidi makes sure she visits with every table.
