What a great meal we had last Saturday night - I have been to this place 5 times and NEVER had a bad meal. We got the Caesar Salad for two at table side, then had a Chicken and a Pork Schnitzel - the red cabbage and Spaetzle sides went so well and the Oktoberfest beer the server recommended was... More

Food is good German fare but takes forever to get a meal. Tried this again after a long time, and it was the same. Good food when you finally get it but too expensive and too long even when not busy. Don't bother.

A bunch from work went to celebrate the Holidays with some drinks and dinner. Let me start with saying the the service was great we has one waiter for 14 of us and we didn't want for anything. No one was without a beer and when I asked for water he brought a pitcher. I was happy. The food on... More

My grandma was German and I've grown up on this food so I was excited to find a German restaurant near my hotel. It was a Wednesday evening and there weren't many people there. The food wasn't very good. I ordered the Bavarian mini wurst with spaetzle and weinkraut. The weinkraut was very good but I've never had it before... More

I had a hard time finding a restaurant in Springfield, MA, on short notice when I learned that my daughter was going to be free for dinner on her birthday - which was the Saturday night before Valentine's Day...so all the restaurants we called were booked solid. Most wouldn't even talk to me about a chance for a table for... More

I'm surprised at the positive ratings for this restaurant and just guess some people don't remember how good it used to be. I mean really good. Now it is, as one review said, mediocre. We were there on a week night and literally were the only people in the place. Yet service was slow and food was tepid when it... More

We went here with my 4yr old son, 13 yr old daughter... knowing nothing about German food. We kind of made our own family style meal. Naturally there was stuff we liked...and not so much. However overall it was great. The atmosphere alone was spectacular. We had a fantastic time. The bill was not that bad considering we had 2... More

Service was very good and the wine was wonderful. Our appetizers: NE clam chowder and potato pancake were tasteless, and left us worried about our entrees. The sauerbraten, spaetzle and red cabbage was SO good! The Jaeger schnitzle was also very good. No room for dessert.

We were traveling through the area and stopped in about 5:30 on Friday evening. A reservation was not needed at that time. The old world décor was very appealing. The menu was diverse with many non German offerings. We began with drinks with the cheese and crackers. We began with the fried cheese, but we do prefer a different mustard.... More

The main dining room is bright, clean, attractive,large but intimate as the tables are spaced well. There is no doubt that the decor is reminescent of Germany. Steins line the room on a high shelf. The menu features many traditional German entres with other choices for those who prefer a more American cousine. It appears that the restuarant is making... More
