Decor and atmosphere is excellent. Food was great as was the service. My friends and I enjoyed an excellent meal with enough room for laughter and on a budget that won't break the bank. Would definitely recommend.

Wonderful meal. Jaeger schnitzel and Viener schnitzel the best. Big portions. Family owned. Setting a little deceiving, but worth the stop for the delicious authentic food.

We travel regularly to Europe and we know how a Schnitzel should be prepared and how it should taste. This place serves an excellent Schnitzel. The food was excellent and the service was good.

We went in for dinner and had a great time, Mira was very nice to us and we must have talked with her for an hour or so. I ordered the goulash with beef and it tasted great, I will definitely stop there again when I'm in town!

Charming staff. Crispy and fresh Bosnian salad. Tasty hamburger with sauerkraut on homemade roll. Homemade coconut cream pie topped with meringue. The best food we've had in several days on the road.

This place is awesome!!!! HUGE bourbon selection and Mary is so knowledgeable. Every bourbon she recommended was better than the one before it. Had a wonderful combo plate appi and an over the top Wiener schnitzel. You have got to check this place out, you will not be disappointed.

Popped in for a quick lunch; wanted something light after a day on the Bourbon Trail and more planned. Opted for the Greek Salad and had grilled chicken added. Well-made. The server was extremely friendly; she had immigrated from Bosnia 20 years prior. Large restaurant - will be back.

This restaurant is actually in the old theatre and houses a nice size collection of art (very interesting story of how it got there, you should ask). The food is wonderful! Linen table clothes and glass but you are still comfortable in jeans. The Kreso's Chicken dish is to die for! OMG!

We were traveling on the Bourbon Trail and stopped off for lunch. It was a little after usual lunch hours so we were the only ones in the place. Service was quick and attentive, the food was good. I had a Reuben Sandwich which was good. Our party had a Chicken Sandwich, Greek Salad and Grilled Chicken Sandwich. The decor... More
