I really liked the Authentic Bavarian experience. The view was amazing. Overall service rivals that of a good Bavaria Inn. The Weinerschnitzel was delicious. The German Chocolate Cake was incredible! What a wonderful experience. Wünderbar!

As much as I love the Bavarian Inn Restaurant I would recommend the chicken, not because I don't like the way they "do" seafood but because I LOVE the way they do chicken!
