“Beer is great, food not so good”
Reviewed September 8, 2012

Seems the food quality has slipped since my last visit here two years ago. The imported German beer was great as was the service.

The kitchen needs retraining or replacing I am sorry to report.

“Would be a good place for a restaurant!”
Reviewed September 2, 2012

Our server Brenda was great- everything else was awful! I think she was the only one working they were not very busy but out of SEVERAL items on the menu. The food was nasty only the pretzels were good but how do you screw up a pretzel?!? Fries were cold food just overall bad. Even the sandwiches were bad! This use to be a Nashville land mark now just drive on!

“Lame”
Reviewed August 23, 2012

I had lunch today. The "reuben" was made with corned beef cured bottom round that was tough and lacked flavor. At ten bucks a pop, it should have been the finest fresh cooked corned beef brisket. The fries were greasy and limp. The "german" mustard weak and runny. Served in yellow plastic squeeze bottles like fast food. The sourkraut came out of a can. At those prices, it should have been made fresh from scratch like good German restaurants do it.

The "german" potato salad was swimming in a runny too-sweet sauce. It came from a bucket. You would think that the management would have enough pride to make their own every day.

This place is grossly overpriced and produces food that would be OK in a jail or mess hall of yore.

Not a single member of the staff present spoke a word of German or knew any of the staat flags flying on the walls.

Waste of your time and money.

“Horrible”
Reviewed August 23, 2012

Do not go ! This is not an authentic German restaurant. The food is not good. Used to be years ago, but it changed owners or something, and has gone down hill. Not recommended.
