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

We went there for breakfast and all had great food French toast, eggs, bacon, hash browns all cooked just right. They also keep your coffee cup full. Great service. Went back for happy hour special. .. only place that has more than sausage for appetizers. Good food and drinks.

Such delicious meals!!! It was a little difficult choosing as there was no gluten free items on the menu. As a newly diagnosed Celiac, it would be great if there were options, but I made out ok, tossed the bun to my Chicken ranch burger with avacado and was good to go.

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 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.
