Went there last week for lunch and concluded that they were trying to be too fancy. While there is a long list of taps, not all of them are really working either. $15.00 burger for this place is too much.

Anytime is fun to visit the Horseshoe, but fall is especially nice because of the German specials. Potato pancakes, German sausages, spaetzle, and so much more to choose from.
