The Braising Pan is an excellent choice for breakfast. Start out with one of their bloody marys; try it with cucumber vodka. The fixings are plenty and delicious! As far as food goes, the french toast with a side of their double-smoked bacon is a must have. Their eggs benedict with hashbrowns is good as well. If you are looking... More

I was looking for German food and instead got an American restaurant with a few dishes one might consider German. They were out of the item ordered so I chose another dish. This was okay, nothing great. They did provide a free dessert. Very good service.

Their breakfast menu is vast and most dishes are very good. One fault they use ham and not Canadian bacon on eggs benedict and they have no espresso/cappuccino. They make good bloody marys with a lot of vegetables on sticks and a beer chaser. The wait staff is very friendly and efficient.

Hi Bill! Thank You for your review, we are glad to hear that your experience with us was enjoyable. We apologize for not having Canadian Bacon, we do use our Black Forest Ham to maintain the German flare in our dishes. And thank you for mentioning the espresso! We are happy to hear folks would like that as an option... More

My wife and I stopped by for lunch on our way to do some shopping in West Bend. We were pleasantly surprised. Our waiter, John , was excellent and so was the food. We'll definitely be back

I've been here several times and I've never been disappointed yet. The food is excellent, the soups look homemade and are sooooo good. Their burgers are tasty and juicy and the German portion of their menu is delicious and authentic. Friday fish fry has been great as well.

We arrived at 7:15 on a Saturday night and the dining room was full, but there was a table waiting for us since we had called 45 minutes earlier. Server was pleasant and helpful. We had deep fried mushrooms for an appetizer. There were plenty and they were very hot and delicious. The soups are homemade. The beef vegetable soup... More

Good food and good service. A smaller place with a nice atmosphere. You may want to make reservations before you go.
