This place is ridiculously bad. How anyone can say it's good is beyond me.
The menu is boring, let's start with that. My other half had the French Dip which he said was bland. I had the salmon burger which was dull and uninspired.
It gets worse.
Never have I been to a full-service restaurant where they use PLASTIC SILVERWARE. Look, this isn't the airport. And this isn't Chick Fil-A. It's actually a restaurant with a bar, waiters, and waitresses. What possible reason could you have to serve people with plastic forks and knives?
Next -- several of us ordered entrees in addition to a starter salad and an appetizer (onion rings or fries.) The server brought ALL OF THE FOOD AT THE SAME TIME. And then she left us with a glib, "Hope you can find space on the table for all of that!"
And, as I said above, the food sucked.
So why are all these writers in love with this place, I'll never know. It's really awful, I kid you not.
If you're still reading: You should know that we waited for two hours for a table. (This part was somewhat understandable -- it was the Saturday night before Xmas, probably the busiest night of the year in Leavenworth and we were a party of 10.) However, when we checked in, we were told it was a 45-minute wait. 45 minutes later, we were again told it was a 45-minute late. After 2 hours, they showed us to our table. I should say TABLES. They had split us into a group of 6 and a group of 4. We said "no way" and were instead squeezed into a nearby table set up for 8, and we brought in two extra chairs.
Oh, and in case you think it's a German restaurant, it's not. It's basically a burger joint.
