“Great German Restaurant Experience”
Reviewed May 28, 2014 via mobile

Analogous to the Brauhaus in Germany during Oktoberfest. Authentic German food with some Polish specialties as well. Big Beers with group singing when they are delivered and a big sense of community while dining. Service is great. Parking can be a challenge if you can't find in lot parking but they have valet in busy nights. A great time for a group...might not be best choice for an intimate couples dinner

“Great German Cuisine”
Reviewed May 19, 2014

This place has the atmosphere of eating in an authentic German restaurant, especially upstairs, where it resembles a real beer garden. The food was great, there was nothing that I did not like. I highly suggest the Hunter Schnitzel, potato pancakes, and corn fritters. Overall, a great experience with the family. I highly recommend this restaurant.

“Unique dining experience!”
Reviewed April 30, 2014

My friends took me here for my birthday dinner based off another friend's referral. When we originally walked in, we weren't sure what we got ourselves into. But by the end of the meal, we were glad that we stayed! The food was delicious and the amount of food you get for the price you're paying is outstanding. Plus the unique decor and experience of having an accordion play throughout the meal was very interesting. Would definitely come back for another meal!

“If you want a German ambience and food, this is a good place”
Reviewed April 26, 2014

If you would like a good German meal and beer, they do a good job here at a very reasonable price. The ambience is fun, staff are friendly, and the menu is varied with all of the German specialties. The food is not gourmet, but then most German food would not be. However, it is very nice. It is a great place to go to, especially coupled with a RockCat baseball game.
