Delightful restaurant with comfortable atmosphere and friendly staff. My husband enjoyed the NY strip steak, my daughter the short ribs, and I had the pan seared scallops. The food was excellent!

We were really excited to try Guglhupf for dinner after seeing all of the positive reviews, but boy, what a disappointing experience. It started with waiting 20 minutes after being seated for our waitress to even acknowledge us. They when we were finally able to...More
