My husband and I wanted to eat lunch at The Troll Tavern because it was a beautiful day and the appeal of eating on the water was ripe. We went by at 1:30 and there were 3 tables on the water that were available but we were told they were not allowed to sit only 2 people at any of... More

A swarm of "AMMO TROOPS" descended on the TROLL TAVERN. Instead of trying to ration with "AMMO" they appeased the Hungry and Parched Air Force Veterans with ample servings of German Food and pitchers upon pitchers of COLD BEER.

Their platters are a decent deal; a couple of sausages along with some kraut and cabbage (and, if you want it, german potato salad which doesn't do anything for me.) The beer is good as well; I liked their stout in particular. Service was prompt and attentive and the outside tables are right near the waterfront, so you get a... More

Food was OK, our poor server was overwhelmed, she had tables on the patio and more inside. I'd say she was working 15 tables. As a server myself I know how hard this can be. She remained friendly and positive. They just needed more staff that evening.
