Yes - this is authentic German food. I grew up in Milwaukee where German food is a religion. The spaetzle was outstanding. HOWEVER - limited options for non-german dishes. Very limited wine list - about 10 wines with nothing special. Our service was lacking. Two orders arrived - then the next 2 - but the last was almost 5 minutes after the others. Finished with strudel which was excellent. Lots of local regulars which is also a good sign. It is the best german food in FTW - solid - but it does not match up with the best in Milwaukee.
