“Once Great, has fallen notably”
Reviewed September 11, 2013

We were among this restaurant's very first customers when we lived nearby and went literally weekly. We returned after a moderate absence all ready for really exceptional food and got merely very good. Once one of the best restaurants in Denver area, period, it is no longer. The Red Cabbage is like out of a can, new recipe unappetizing. Main entrees and some desserts are rather good, but some are average at best.

It is still a very good value and things such as the wursts and schnitzel are rather good, but the sauces are compromised vs. the originals. My heritage is the three cuisines featured here - German, Czech and Polish, so i should know. Not up to the old standards, waaaah. Still a great place nonetheless and a great spot for European Beer instead of all that "Craft" stuff that is so out of balance.

“Taste of "home"”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

If you're missing Central European cuisine offered in larger cities, this is a perfect place for good Czech and German food, not to mention an excellent representation of proper European beers (pivo!)

“German, Austrian, Czech cuisine”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

If you like honest straightforward German food in a unassuming location, eating with locals, and having very large portions of tasty food, this is the place for you.

Try the liver dumpling soup - they serve it every day. They are famous for their Svickova. (Czech style sauerbrauten - lightly marinated beef topped with sour cream gravy). The servings are very generous, including the sides. The sauerkraut and red cabbage and spaetzle were authentic and delicious.

Save room for the apple strudel with ice cream.

You won't go home hungry, but you will go home happy.

They are closed Sundays and Mondays and the month of July.

“Good food”
Reviewed July 26, 2012

I enjoyed our meal here. It was very good. I ordered the duck and it was prepared very skillfully. Duck can be greasy if not done right. The pork cutlet was also yummy.

“Very Good, Why Did We Wait?”
Reviewed May 19, 2012

We have lived in the area for over 15 years and have driven by this restaurant at least once per day and were always skeptical. We recently visited Germany and wanted to find similar fare locally and decided to give it a try based on reviews. We are so glad we did and are sad we waited so long. The restaurant was packed when we arrived but we were accomidated quicly with friendly servers. We were quickly served drinks and bread by a firendly Gentleman. The schnapps was very good as was the beer. The Roast Beef was tender enought to cut with the fork and very delicious. My Husband order the Weiner Schnitzel, Pork Sausage and Duck combination which was more than he could finish in one sitting. While not all of the food tasted authentic to Germany, we did not expect a perfect match but were very satisfied and will definately be back.Good Service, Great Food and Very Clean and Cheery!
