Great waitress and food but all ended there. We had the prime rib which perfect. Per the website they were open all day, we got there at 3 pm, the neon sign was lit for open and the doors were open, when we went in...we were told they would be open at 4 pm so left and went back at the correct time. When we were seated right next to another party the greeted said they don't adhere to the 5-6 ft rule and don't need to wear masks. We asked to be moved which we were but she didn't seem happy about it. Overall the food was great and our waitress was wonderful but they need to be more conscious of the covid problems..More

My husband got the schnitzel with grilled onions, it was delicious. I got the chicken friend steak and it was delicious also. We both got the pan potatoes and they were very good. We ordered the calamari for an appetizer and it was some of...the best we have had. My husband loved the cheesecake with blueberry sauce. Service was good. We wondered why we hadn't tried it before, we go up there 2-3 times a year! We will return for sure!More

Not authentic German food. Spatzle was the consistency of ramen noodles. Schnitzel was decent. Stayed the night at the inn. The mattress was entirely too firm. Cleanliness was not great. No mini fridge. A bit outdated and the decor was a bit confusing. German shrunks...with Great Gadspyesqe wall hangings. Would not stay again or eat at the restaurant. Both are way overpriced.More

Good German food with great service. I had the Jager Schnitzel with the spatzle which was delicious followed by the apple strudel. The rest of the family had the chicken and New York Strip which they thoroughly enjoyed.

I can’t say enough about this restaurant the food was amazing but our server Alexander made it everything that it was! He is the best server I’ve ever seen in my entire life and I used to be in the restaurant business and I travel...quite a bit. His suggestions for food were spot on! We will be back!More

Terrific German food tonight- Doug was our waiter and he is terrific! On point service, great with refills and he was pretty busy too. Good: perfect. Amazing molasses something bread (dark brown) that was served warm. Salad was really good including cauliflower, broccoli, cabbage? Carrots,...tomato, cucumber and really good dressing. We each had the Schnitzel- I had Pepper Schnitzel and he had Holstein Schnitzel, we shared a side of potatoes. Very delicious food - sauerkraut was amazing too!! Definitely recommend. Covid-19 restrictions wear mask to table and put it on again when you leave the gable, indoor dining allowed.More

Waiter was good but no waiter wore masks Management did not enforce. Other employees mad about this. There was a little sign talking about upcharge if used credit card but no one see it--at a time when most folks don't want cash because of shortage....The food was good but not excellent. The desert lacked flair. There is so little actual German about this German town. This place just seems like a tourist trap.More

The atmosphere was nice as was the waiter but down hill from there - Jager schnitzel breading was soggy and lacked flavor- we wonder if it had been pre cooked and sitting-escargot was good - we ordered soup,escargot and one schnitzel to share- they still...tried to add $4.50 for an extra plate and $3 for a credit card fee - we paid cash and after I challenged the xtra charges they removed them- would not go back!More
