Loved the Reuben and you can grab a German brew while you’re at it! The village area provided a bit of a respite from the main drag which was nice for us and our dog.

The restaurant is in the village at the top of the cheese cupboard. They only accept cash, FYI. the Reuben is amazing! We always get that and the cheese plate. My kids had the Pretzel, turkey sandwich and bratwurst. The food is served quickly. It’s...a small restaurant with only a few tables and the atmosphere is like that of a German pub. It’s the 1st place we eat every time we are in Gatlinburg.More

This was the BEST food. Such a cool small hole in the wall place with the sweetest service and delicious delicious food. I had a reuben and my friends and I shared a pretzel. You get three dipping sauces and it was absolutely the yummiest...bite to eat. Thanks yall!More

Delicious food especially on a hot day and you want a sit down break. Go upstairs and order your food. Great place to eat and then head next door to the donut friar for dessert. Fresh meat and cheese cut for each sandwich.

My husband and I had lunch here. He had the Ruben and said it was amazing. I had the corned beef and swiss...and I have to say I'm not normally a fan of pumpernickel bread, but the bread was super moist and lots of flavor!...Great prices too.More

This place was perfect. We ordered the Polish sausage sandwich with kraut and the large pretzel and both were so good. I can’t wait to go back on our next trip to the area.

Being from Germany, it's always nice to find home food. Its was pretty good. The dining space is small but the ambience is nice. Food took quite a while to get to us. Was served almost traditionally. All around pretty good. Prices were reasonable. Cash...only!More

We were looking for a quick bite to hold us until supper. Definitely hit the spot! The Reuben sandwich was divine! Pumpernickel roll was so good! My better half had the large pretzel and was raving about how awesome it was, as well as the...REAL beer cheese and cheese spread. Definitely coming back next time! Cozy dining and real German beer! Great visit!!More
