The food and service were great. Seating is limited so be sure to make a reservation. Sauerkraut was just like my Grandmother made.

There were no children the night we were there and I don't recall a children's menu but if your children are well traveled and enjoy German food , I don't see a problem with taking them to the restaurant.
