I am ok with overpriced food and average service. However, I am not ok with bland, tough and gamey pork in watery sauce. Frozen meals taste better than this. I am disappointed by the restaurant and the positive reviews. Sigh.

Tired of stopping at chain restaurants while driving interstate. When the map on my iPhone showed this as a restaurant within a reasonable distance we decided to stop since it was very close off I-81. Glad we did. There are so few authentic German restaurants and I was in the mood for something different. With every meal you get sides... More

My husband and I love this quaint restaurant service authentic German food. Everything I have eaten there is amazing. Husband was stationed in Germany in the army and he said the food was spot on. Servers are very nice and love music night. A must try!

Outstanding German food and beverages! Every time I go here I leave completely full and satisfied. Very quaint setting, authentic look, feel and taste. You can even get good German beer to go. I look forward to coming here every time.

We had our dogs and could eat outside on their darling porch. The food was fantastic! We will be back whenever in this area!

We stopped in while traveling and were delighted with authentic German food. Our waiter was so very pleasant and added to the experience. Their service is quick so if your traveling this won't take much time. Everyone must try the Black Forest cake! It was the very best! Truly authentic!

We really enjoyed this restaurant. We arrived midway lunch and dinner but we were served happily and quickly. We both had Austrian/German type food...it was so good, it reminded us of food we had had on (and off) a river cruise in Germany/Austria. We will definitely return on our next trip to VA, NC.

A friend of mine from Germany recommended this lovely gem months ago. A second recommendation came from the owners of Beagle Ridge Gardens & Herb Farm. I was born in Wiesbaden, Germany and managed several German Restaurants in my younger days. My guests and I had a very memorable experience after dining here recently. The Schnitzels were excellent as were... More

We've seen the sign for this place many times on our travels up and down 81. We finally found the time to stop in and we were not disappointed! The service was very friendly and the food was delivered fairly quickly even though we were there on a crowded Saturday evening. The three of us each got a different fish... More

This was my third visit to this folksy German restaurant. Well, the owner is from Austria, that is close enough. There was a lot of pounding going on in the kitchen which I had to explain to my family. That is how the schnitzels are tenderized, German style. This place is so authentic,they even have rauch(smoked)bier. When you visit be... More
