Friends have had steak and fish, but I always gravitate to their exceptional German dishes, especially the cordon blue with spätzle. Close behind are the sauerbraten, schnitzel, sausage platter, and the accompanying red cabbage, spätzle, and potato pancakes. It's a small place, hard to find, but well worth it.

Small, cozy and inviting..our first time there after a recommendation from a friend...the man who greeted us at the door with round black glasses seemed to enjoy his job and started our entrance with a laugh! Our waiter was great, food prep was timely and overall, we enjoyed our Anniversary dinner tons☝️

We went here kind of late (around 8:15pm). We were promptly seated. We both ordered the potato pancakes for appetizer. These were very good. I got the potato pancake crusted halibut with crab on top. It was very good. After many years of not going back, I enjoyed this restaurant. I would recommend it.

As always, Alfred's delivers impeccable taste and service. Guillermo is the man! Recommendations always on point. Bring your on wine, they have corkage fee but worth it!

I grew up in Silesia, a region of southwestern Poland that has historically alternated between being German or Polish territory. Needless to say, I have eaten a lot of great German food when I was growing up. This is the real deal. I had the sauerbraten, my parents had a veal special. It came with spaetzle, which are potato dumplings... More

Family of 14 went and not one complaint in the group. Excellent German food along with fresh seafood. The most raved about dish was the halibut special on top of sautéed spinach with crab sprinkled on top. Service was great. We have made this an annual stop in our family trip to Hilton Head

Having lived in Germany for many years and being married to a German, I cannot recommend this restaurant. The place is small and dark and appears ill-kept. The menu had typical German fare (lacking rouladen...my favorite German dish which is difficult to prepare properly). After ordering our food, the basket of Broetchen (bread rolls) arrived, and would have been more... More

Couldn't wait to try their Sauerbraten with spaetzle, unfortunately, the meat was dry. Used the cheapest cut of bottom round they could find. The powdered "gravy" wasn't enough to choke down this mess. Couldn't eat it. The spaetzle wasn't bad or the red cabbage. But, I've seen first-year brides put together a better meal. Pathetic. Partner had the standard Snitzle-... More

Alfred's is tucked away in a little center with a couple other restaurants. It's a cozy little spot with maybe 10 tables total and the bar seating. Make a reservation for sure. The restaurant offers a lot of variety from German to steak to fish to pork. The Halibut, Pork Chop, and Filet are all wonderful. Wines are reasonably priced... More

Intimate & cozy. Entertaining to sit at bar and watch the food being prepared. Always fresh food and a great service staff. Rolls served hot out of the oven. You cannot get better bratwurst, schnitzel, sauerbraten, spaetzle and the potato pancakes are over the top. Guiarmo is our very favorite waiter - we have followed him wherever he goes with... More
