Off the beaten path but worth finding. Authentic German food and beer selection. Stopped in for lunch & was pleasantly surprised. Food was good, service very friendly & strudel :). Try the goat cheese app.

Came her with some German friends... place is very busy and they only take reservations for parties of 6 or more. Short wait at bar... several good beers. Food was good - not great ( duck a little dry ) but edible.

Yes, I called the Waldhorn and they said you could purchase a gift certificate with a credit card and they would mail the gift certificate. Happy shopping.
