Food is 5 star and cheap. No beer and the decor isn't great, but they are focusing on what matters. Some of the best German food I've had in the US

The food was as close to authentic as I've had in this area. Bratwurst and jagerschnitzel. Limited menu .. no alcohol, no American. The decor is very basic with folding tables for patrons of 6. They do accept credit cards.

I've never had German cuisine before so I didn't know what to expect. The food was great, the staff very friendly, the atmosphere quaint. All that was missing was beer ;)

I've eaten here numerous times since 2012 when we moved to the Mechanicsburg area. After living in Germany for eight years of my life, I've missed tasting the flavors of this underrated cuisine. I was very pleased to see some upgrades in the seating and ambiance of the interior in the last few months. It's much less an old leftover... More

A nice little bistro area that serves awesome authentic German food. The smell of just made apple strudel made our mouths water! My son had the... More

Had lunch here with my boyfriend...always wanted to stop by, so glad we did! The food was fantastic! I had the wurst platter which gave an generous sampling of their homemade sausages along with their tasty warm potato salad and delicious sauerkraut. My boyfriend ordered the Hungarian Goulasch. The hearty sauce and chunks braised beef was complimented well by the... More

Very nice food and customer service. Very friendly staff! I wish a little bit warmer in dining area for this cold winter time. We will definitely back with beer and some wine to the restaurant. Enjoyed the food very much!

We've been stopping in this little German deli/restaurant for many years. It's an unprepossessing place but it's where we can buy the German foods and meats and breads that are so dear to my heart. Sometimes we stay for lunch and it's never disappointed. Sometimes we pick up dinner items that we take home and heat up later. We would... More

I've wanted to pay it a visit for a long time as it is one of very few German restaurants in the area; however, at least 2 of the previously attempts had failed because I simply couldn't find this place!!! This time, someone posted a picture of it's exterior yellow sign, and I finally found this inconspicuous little gem. Inside... More
