“A German restaurant at the foot of Skyline Drive, Shenandoah National Park”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

On a road trip through Georgia, Tennessee and Viriginia to enjoy the spring flowers and Skyline drive. An interesting little restaurant, a break from the BBQ places all over the south. I had the homemade brats, sauerkraut and rosti potatoes while my wife had skewered beef. Ample and very good portions. The brats and grill beef were delicious. Also tried their signature dessert: Angel Wings. Strawberry filled dumplings served with ice cream and strawberry sauce - delicious.

“Loved it”
Reviewed April 27, 2013

Nice alternative to cookie cutter restaurants. The service was outstanding and helpful. The food was great, ample portions. The lunch items were mostly around $10 or a little less. Both indoor and outdoor dining. Plan to hear German folk music the whole time you are there (with some yodeling). Hey - it is a German food place...I would recommend anyone visiting this area to stop in for a great bite!

“Best food in Harrisonburg!”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

Love it here, I've tried several different things and everything is so good. It is a simple setting, but the food is what you're going for. They have a little patio out front, which is just lovely to enjoy a beer with friends on a warm afternoon. Must visit!
