Very busy! The service was good and the food was delicious. Everyone at our table was more than happy with our choices. Hard to say what was best. The salad was different and delicious. Spiral ham may be the best I have ever tasted. The potato salad is a must try.

My husband and I chose to eat here as our other food options were closed for the day and this restaurant has free parking. We split the German sausage platter. We had sauerkraut and potato salad.

Quick service and friendly staff. I thought the food was good, although not spectacular, but it's a cafe! The variety of food on the menu should satisfy even the pickiest eaters!

We love that this is right on the River. So pretty. And the food was really good as well. We'd heard good things about it and we weren't steered wrong.

Restaurant is located on river so great view while dining. Food is good with lots of variety. If you do not like German food plenty of options here. Portions are generous and service is awesome.

I had the turkey sandwich and it was awesome! We were excited to get a table overlooking the river, but the gnats were pretty annoying.

This is a great place for date night! The owner and staff are always welcoming and the view of the river is awesome! The rubon sandwich is a must have, I crave it often!

Went for late lunch, early dinner. I ordered the Alpine Chicken. My mixed vegetables were cold, the mashed potatoes were hot, my chicken which had ham and slice cheese on it......was just warmed. For 15.00 not worth it. Our waitress was very friendly.
