It was amazing! Honestly I thought everything but the chicken was great. Next time we will just leave their chicken alone. Go hungry, you get a ton of food.

Although you will get plenty to eat, there was little to no flavor in any of the dishes served for the family style chicken dinner. For the price paid, you would do well to choose a different restaurant for chicken. If you are just looking for a German style event, this place will satisfy you.

We were first seated in the inside dining room but didn't receive any service. We walked out and headed to the outside deck where we were waited on immediately. We dined outdoors on the edge of the biergarten and were serenaded by a one-man band throughout our meal. We could almost imagine we were in Germany. The hourly presentation in... More

I don't know how the theme started but it has worked for many, many years. The restaurants, shops, hotels all have a German theme. The staff wear German attire from the hats to vests. Everyone is pleasant, cheerful and helpful. It is a wonderful place to visit and have delicious food.

With reservations made two months earlier, promised a room with the country view -- we had a room with a parking lot view. We asked to change and the hotel was full, so no help from the front desk or front desk manager. Room was not worth the premium price paid for room with a view. We were very far... More

We visited for dinner 7/19/2016 & used a birthday coupon. We don't have any complaints about this visit as it was absolutely perfect. We had a family style chicken dinner and everything was delicious & fresh. The pace of service was perfect. Our waitress ( I think the name is Amber?) was courteous, paid attention to special requests, was appropriately... More

Great food, kind of spendy, but that's expected, terrific beer! Atmosphere is second to none! There are numerous dining rooms, each with its own charm, and even seating outside where there is authentic live Bavarian music played
