When you're not in the mood for yet another Leavenworth bratwurst, this is a great alternative. My wife and I stopped here late night on a Monday after hiking to Colchuck Lake. Not too many restaurants were still open at the time, but we noticed that the bar at Tumwater was. We stopped in, grabbed a couple beers, and ordered... More

The Food was just okay. There are definitely better options in town. Service was also slow. They do have a large variety to the menu.

This is a nice little restaurant. The food was very good and the service was excellent. We has the Reuben and it was very good.

This is a good place to have a traditional hearty meal. By no means gourmet, but for tired travelers it fits the bill.

The bar is small, but friendly and has great food. Usually will find music on the weekend nights. Fresh salads and love the southwest chicken. There's a TV for sports fans.

Poor service with only two tables being occupied. Waitress spent her time in the bar. Food was mediocre at best and then was served Luke warm to boot. No Bueno.

We stopped at this place for dinner based on prices even though it didn't appear to be very busy. The soup was obviously home made and the best I'd had in a long time. We enjoyed our entrees so much, we ate dinner there our second night as well.

We were just walking around the village and came across this lovely bar and restaurant. The atmosphere was so comfortable and cozy. We did not select German food, but what we did order was fabulous. We were delightfully surprised at the quality and presentation of the food. Our waitress was charming and attentive. We actually wish it were a real... More

Although this restaurant is a family restaurant, they only have one waiter (on a Friday night) and he was not good at his job. I made a reservation and he knew who I was when I arrived but he didn't bring a kids menu (even though I had a 2 and 4 year old) and he did not bring crayons... More
