We love the food. We've eaten their German dishes and ribs and all of it was excellent. The prices are great, too which is why we will definitely go back again. The restaurant is not very large but has a wonderful atmosphere.

Breakfast is always filling and never expensive. Bloodys have just the right amount of garden and spice to them. Service is friendly

Been here a few times and have never been disappointed. I forget what it is called but they have this rolled up beef dish that is so tender. YUM !! Could use better beer selection but all in all great food and service.

This is my favorite breakfast place in West Bend. The food is always exceptional. All the servers I've ever had have been helpful and attentive. My only complaint would be the bussing staff or server assistants. Last time I dined here the young women who i asked for a coffee and water refill told me she was busy and to... More

Stopped in for a late lunch and had exceptional soup(home made mushroom, and Italian wedding). The sandwiches are incredible(shaved prime rib on sourdough, and Cubano on tello role). All sandwiches are paired with special breads. The best sandwiches we have had period!

Intimate atmosphere with wonderful cuisine are but two of the highlights of this restaurant; add an attentive staff who wait on each and every table with expertise and awesome customer service. I highly recommend this eating establishment as a "must" for those visiting West Bend! Be sure and make reservations as seating is limited. All-you-can-eat crab legs were succulent, fresh,... More

Breakfast was fine but the service was poor at best. Our server who turned out to be the manager took our orders and was nowhere to be found after. We had to actually go to the host station to get our bill and pay after a long wait after we had finished eating. The restaurant was quite quiet during our... More

The restaurant was small but quaint. The muddled old fashioned set the right tone right away. The wait staff was very friendly and attentive. The food was awesome especially the prime rib and snow crab. We were very happy with the meal but the raspberry cheesecake and Andes mint pie sealed the deal. Highly recommended

I have eaten here twice and was not disappointed either time! Very attentive wait staff. I had the special French toast stuffed with honey mascarpone-delicious! Husband keeps ordering the corned beef and Swiss omelet-the corned beef melts on your mouth. Very good!
