“Nice introduction to German food and menu variety if you'd rather not”
Reviewed July 25, 2014

The outside Biergarten reminded us of the time we spent in Germany, but since it was a hot day we opted for the air conditioned inside. The menu is a combination of German and American so there is something for the non adventurous eaters. The yeast rolls we soft and warm, but there is excellent dark bread available too. Our server was very good even though the place was quite crowded. The jagerschnitzel was brought out piping hot and crispy with excellent mushroom gravy that comes with either a red or white wine style. When I asked for more it was brought cheerfully without extra cost. The spätzle was properly cooked and delicious although I wish the serving was bigger, but with the meal coming with two sides, and soup or salad I can't say anyone walked away hungry. The potato pancakes were crisp small delicious medallions All of the favorite beers are there, served in tall glasses. The spicy sausage was a real treat. It is as close to Germany as you will come in Texas.

“Live music. Family friendly.”
Reviewed July 22, 2014

Love hearing the music while dining on the patio. Fun German menu. Seemed a little overpriced for the value.

“Aviod at all cost...”
Reviewed July 21, 2014 via mobile

Please read other reviews that are negative about this place. They are spot on. People who have eaten here and given it good reviews have no idea what good German food taste like. Nothing that they serve you is fresh. Everything comes from a can including their gravy. Upon tasting my food I was so upset with people who gave this place any review other than zero. It's unfortunate all I can do is give it one star I would not have given it that.

“Typical German food”
Reviewed July 21, 2014

The food here is was not as good as I would expect for German food from a recommended restaurant in Fredericksburg. The service was not the best, maybe it was just a busy Saturday night but our waiter was scarce most of the night. We were seated next to a rather loud, boisterous group of folks who were getting much better service than we were. We should have pulled up a chair and sat with them. They probably wouldn't have noticed, nor would have our waiter. There is better food and atmosphere elsewhere in Fredericksburg.
