Sort of "off the beaten path" although right on the highway. Small classic German restaurant with good food. We had the sauerbrauten special as well as a schnitzel. Food was very good. Service was courteous and prompt. Prices are very reasonable. We will go back.

Stopped in today and was pleasantly surprised. The place reminded me of a typical Gasthaus in Germany. The aroma of sauerkraut greeted my nose. I ordered the Tour of Germany, shnitzle, bratwurst, red cabbage, sauerkraut, and mashed potatoes. I added a dunkel weissbier and was...More
