“Love the German Pancake”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2013

My husband was going to eat the German pancake here come he'll or high water. We were still full from breakfast at the B&B, but he had to have it. It didn't disappoint. He loved it and was a happy camper. I wasn't that hungry but ordered a grilled chicken tortilla salad. It was terrible, but that is NOT what this place is about.
