Great place to eat if you are craving good German food. The portions are enough to satisfy the biggest of appetites. With that said, make sure to save room for the delicious homemade desserts.

Seated immediately, cold beer within minutes...I had the Jager Schnitzel with fresh spatzl and red cabbage. Great little place, all food is prepared to order, so there was a bit of a wait but it was worth it!

Small diner with very good food, The Rouladen was especially good; however, everything else was tasty too.

I love their Onion Schnitzel. I am no expert on German food, but friends that have been to Germany tell me it is really good. I also like their deserts. Generally it is pretty fast and friendly service.
