Arrived without a reservation and we're seated immediately. Server took our drink orders, I had a liter of Octoberfest (they served it all year). Food was delivered in a timely manner and it was super. We have been here previously and was even better this trip. Highly recommened.

I have been here about 5 times and this is the first time I am reviewing this place. First off I do not like German cuisine. I don't like veal and other typical German dishes. So why the 4 stars? They do an excellent grouper entrée. Grouper is a fish by the way. All my friends who have the German... More

Restaurant does a Groupon offer that is fantastic. The food is always hot and fresh. Potato Pancakes are good, Schnietzel is delicious, homemade Spatzel is off the charts. Service is always friendly except for the host, a little abrupt if you don't have a reservation. Parking is an issue. Highly recommend

A regular stop for us when in Pompano. Great atmosphere, great food and terrific service. Beer selection nonpereil! Everything on the menu is the real deal. If dining on Monday night, request coupon for future Monday night forays; 50% off all food on menu.

We have been coming here for years. The food and service is outstanding. The beer selection is second to none. They have over two dozen German beers on tap and in bottles. There's a beer tour offered. If you drink a boot of each of their beers (no time limit) you get to be a member of their boot club.... More

Outstanding restaurant! Great food! Large portions! Just love the place. Its a smallish restaurant and bar so any large parties might have to call ahead. I HIGHLY recommend this place.

We took advantage of a Groupon deal ($24 for an appetizer, 2 entrees & 2 beers) to eat at this quaint German restaurant. The place was very cute though small with beer steins decorating the walls and a decidedly German motif. There was a full bar towards the back where customers sat and drank a variety of different beers. We... More

To date, this is the most negative experience I ever had in a restaurant EVER! I was muscled out by a GAY couple because I PICKED a stein after I finished my beer German tour. I was being called all kinds of names right in front of everyone in the bar and to avoid a confrontation/fight because there's where this... More

This was our second time eating here. Food is very good and service is excellent. On the weekend you better have reservations. They also have valet parking as there is not much parking available.
