A relaxed and friendly atmosphere with a large fireplace inside for those cold winter evening and a great beer garden for those hot summer days.

Have eaten here 3 times, probably not again. Very hit or miss! Depends how you like your schnitzel - oily or very oily.

Very informal, rustic atmosphere created not only by the unique decor but also the continental patrons that frequent this popular restaurant/pub. The service was excellent and the food is wholesome, well prepared and tasty. The specialty of the house being various schnitzels and Eisbein (which you need to order in advance) and guests at our table were all more than happy with their choices. The salad could do with a renovation, but that could have been due to the season and limited availability of produce. Excellent German beers on tap and a place well worth a revisit with friends!

I was looking for a place to take my mom, and her friends who are from Austria. I looked up on the internet for local German cuisine and asked around on a local page on a social network. Im Eimer came up a few times, I was warned its mainly for drinking and a party BUT we were going for a lunch. How many parties are there lunch time When you get there its a dirt road that leads up to the place and it does not look like much, there were a few other patrons, the inside decor could be a little more German and not so uhm out of place and stuff everywhere, the lady from Austria was a little concerned as to how nice the Jäger Schnitzel, Mushroom and Cream Sauce with Spätzle's she ordered would be looking around at the restaurant. The three of them ordered the same and I went for the Wiener Schnitzel, crumbed,with Lemon and Chips. I asked for salad instead of the chips and they were happy to oblige. We all received our food and we were all impressed as to the portions and the taste. It was definitely nicer than we expected and I would recommend Im Eimer for a Traditional German Meal.
