The is great. The staff are very friendly and helpful. I had the Schnitzel dinner. The schnitzel could have been a tinsy bit bigger but the taste was great. Red cabbage was just like what I had in Germany. Plenty of fries too. Wife had the ham sandwich and salad and they were great. Highly recommend.

We had the best rib eye steak. It was tender and flavorful. The selection on the menu is terrific for someone who isn't too crazy about German food.

Great atmosphere tasty food. Try the three sausage and sauerkraut appetizer. It is amazing! If you don't like sauerkraut this is a great dish to start with. And say hi to Jewel if she's there, she lives up to her name.

We ate lunch here and were treated very well. The server had a hard time remembering what dressing I asked for on the salad (Italian) but was otherwise excellent. The food was good and the price was good. We had a reuben and a brat. The salad was good too. The sauerkraut was excellent. It is a block off the... More

Went for lunch, had enough that we could skip dinner. The daily specials are fantastic and quite affordable. Do treat yourself!

In the mood for a good slab of prime rib, we chose this restaurant only to find out that prime rib is served only on Fridays and Saturdays. We persisted as we figured the menu would be somewhat upscale. The menu is primarily comfort food. Schnitzels, meat loaf, strogonanoff, etc, with a number of burger type options too. The Chicken...

We had two meals at the restaurant. The second time we went for a meal the waitress remembered what we liked to drink with our meal. The food is very tasty, the portions are huge, and the prices are very reasonable. If in Leavenworth, I would eat there again.

We had not visited this restaurant in recent years so gave it a try. At 5:30 there was no line and we found it to be a nice respite from the busy main street restaurants. The service by their young server was excellent and the food delicious (although they did not have spätzle which disappointed my husband).

A restaurant just off the main drag of Leavenworth that has a menu mostly free of the faux-German gut bombs foisted on customers everywhere else in town. Great service, excellent food. I recommend the pulled pork salad - light and tasty and in Leavenworth light is hard to find.

We had been here before and I remembered that I really liked their weiner snitzel. We tried it again and were disappointed. Not as good. I has rotkohl on the side (in a little plastic cup) and it was very bitey with too much vinegar. My partner had bratwurst (OK) with sauerkraut, which he said was not as good as... More
