“Great food, and lots of it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2012

We enjoyed a wonderful meal with friends last night. Making a decision among all the mouth-watering choices was the hardest part of the evening. A friend and I finally decided to split two entrees, because we were so torn. She ordered a special, Pork Schnitzel, and I ordered another special, an Ahi Tuna Stir Fry, and we then we each got half of each entree. Both were amazing. Others around the table enjoyed their meals, as well, including an interesting "Louisiana Chicken of the Sea" with seafood and chicken in a puff pastry. No one had room for dessert! The service was good, the ambiance very charming, and we all had a great time.

“Great German and Italian food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2012

Always delicious, friendly service. I would recommend very highly. My family has had several larger parties for birthday dinner and they were very efficient handling 10-12 without delay. Great owners, servers and food!

“Outstanding”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2012

I eat here frequently and this is, by far, the best restaurant in the area. The German and Italian dishes are excellent and the daily specials outstanding. The staff and owners are wonderful and always focused on creating an exceptional dining experience. I absolutely love this place!

“Great food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2012

Eckhards is consistently good food with cheerful, accomodating service. The portions are generous but your server will gladly bring you a half portion of most entrees. A nice wine and beer selection is available. Dessert is always great.

“Good food and interesting varied menu”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2012

We were out at Deltaville meeting up with friends. On our return, we asked a couple of locals where was good to eat, and Eckhard's was recommended.
We found the place pretty easily, as it was opposite the small airstrip, and ventured in. We were given a warm welcome by a lady, who we assumed was the owner, and shown to a window table. Within minutes, we had water served at table and an elderly gentleman gave us menu's and asked us what drinks we wanted. They had a good wine list and being a German style restaurant, they served a good choice of German bottled beers and some draft beers.
Food orders were taken and as all of us had mains, we had choice of salad starters, each ordering style of dressing. When these arrived, it was quickly obvious that we didn,t get the correct dressings we ordered, but as we had already started eating, none of us minded. Warm bread rolls were also served, which were freshly cooked.
For mains, we had baked scallops (7 large scallops) served in a large bowl in butter with breadcrumb crusts and I had the Veal scallops in mushroom sauce (made with creme-fresch. The meal was also served with separate dishes of creamy mashed potato and peas with small silver skinned onions.
The food was very good quality and obviously very fresh and tasty. The portions were of good size, so no room for desserts.
Overall, a very good dining experience. The atmosphere was good with a reasonable buzz from the other diners, and nice that the tables had a reasonable gap between then.
Only slight criticisms were the mistake from the waiter and the price seemed a little bit high ($100 for 3 x mains and 1 paid fir drink), but quality was excellent.
