“Better than I had in Germany”
Reviewed April 23, 2012

Found this restaurant when it was in Cole Camp, MO. Followed them to the lake when they moved and visit them every time we are in the area. The German food is simply outstanding. I have made business trips to Darmstadt Germany and eaten in their "best" restaurant. This place is better. It is run by a couple and I believe his wife came from the French/German border. They serve both American and German dishes but I can never get to the American dishes. For newbys try the Jaeger Schnitzel. Once you have finished your dinner you must save a little room for their upside-down German chocolate cake. It is the best I have ever tasted and is an absolute must. The food and the service is the star here. From the outside it looks like a little local restaurant in the fork of the road. Get past the normal looks and enjoy some wonderful food.
