“German dining in Phoenix area”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

Very nice set-up. Decorations are authentic and good atmosphere/
Had the Weiner Schnitzel with fried potatoes, average!..Have eaten in at least 50 German Restaurants from coast to coast and would not rank this one in the top 50%. Worth going if you are in the area, but ...Not a must!

“Good German Food”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

HUGE portions...this is our second visit there and both times we were very please with our choices. The menu has very good descriptions of the meals, and the waitstaff is helpful when explaining the food and the beer choices.

“A slice of Munich”
Reviewed January 15, 2013

We visited during the Glitter festival (whatever it's called when the town turns off the Christmas lights) and it was packed. It was also very cold but that's not the restaurant's fault. In fact, the place compensated well with portable heaters to keep those outside toasty.

The food was well done and tasty. My sausage was a tad overcooked but I attribute that to an overwhelmed kitchen.

The beers are what I expected and served in the correct glasses. We enjoyed the atmosphere and the oompah band (Tuba and Accordion) lent a festive feel to place. I felt sorry for the Tuba player as the temp was in the 40's, but he allayed the chill with ample alcohol ;)

I only have two complaints. The first is that our waiter was very flustered and flighty. He didn't bring out the utensils nor the condiments for our table. He seemed very lost. Maybe he had an off night or was overwhelmed by the crowd.
The other complaint is logistics. For a decent sized restaurant during a festival, the bathrooms were criminally few. One-seater for the men, two-seater for the ladies, and a family bathroom are far too inadequate for a place that seemed to hold 200 people. Especially a place the specializes in serving beer in large quantities.

Other than those two complaints, I would absolutely dine here again.

“Traditional German Food!”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

We enjoyed this restaurant on a very busy evening, Glendale Glitter & Glow. We were wise to eat early, service was fast and very cordial. The food was very good and we would definitely come back, when we're in the area. A friend and I had taken advantage of the patio a few weeks ago when we were strolling the area and enjoyed their happy hour. Both times service was very good.
