“Very good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2012

I was in the mood for something a little different so stopped here as I have not been here in a few years. The food was quite good overall. A little disappointed in the salad bar but that wasn't a big deal as it was not the salad I was craving. The schnitzel is what I wanted and it was quite good, as was the escargot appetizer. I admit I have had better schnitzel but heading back to Berlin Germany wasn't really in the time budget. The atmosphere is OK, but you really don't feel like you are in Bavaria despite the music and cuckoo clock. I will go back, prices are a tad hefty I believe but still worth the price for the quality.

“Bring your appetite”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2012

We just returned from our first trip to Lake George. We were pleasantly surprised to find a German restaurant in nearby Bolton Landing. When we first walked in, the hostess and servers were waiting and greeted us warmly. This was a sign of good things to come. The menu is authentic and there are many dishes from which to choose. Our group had the cordon bleu schnitzel, goulasch, rouladen, and a mixed grill with steak, pork chop, schnitzel and sausage (only recommended for big eaters!) The sides we had included spatzle, potatoes fried with onion and bacon, and red cabbage. Be forewarned though - the portions are huge, so make sure you come with an appetite, especially since the meal also includes soup and a salad bar. There is a varied selection of European lagers and ales. Sadly, I can't comment on the desserts because we simply didn't have room for any after our meal! They did look fantastic, though. The restaurant was very clean, the service was friendly and professional and we were very impressed. We recommend Pumpernickel's highly and would definitely return for a little taste of Germany.

“The Pumpernickel”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2012

It was the worst GERMAN Restaurant we have been to. Their Wiener Schnizel was terrible, salad was soggy, service was horrible. The Schnizel was not breaded at all and the meat was tough. We will not go back to them & particularly we will NOT recommend them to any of our
friends!!! Gertrude & Hans

“Good German food and lots of it.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2012

This restaurant serves excellent German food and lots of it! The portions are huge, but if you can take some home with you, you can get two meals for the price of one. Prices are very reasonable and we very much enjoyed it. The atmosphere is casual; nothing special, but not offensive. Service was good. It has a big salad bar and a lot of space between tables. A good place for large groups or families with children.
