“Warm and inviting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2013

Walk into Baumgartners and you're stuck by how warm and inviting the place is. Then you're struck by the array of cheese they sell up front. . When you continue on back and see the long table full of happy people, the beer signs, the shelf full of board games and the simple menu of comfort food, you know you've come to a place where you can relax, have a good meal and a great time. Don't forget to give your waiter a crisp bill for the charity collection, You'll be happy you did!

“Awesome Food and Games Aplenty!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2013

We spent five hours (a group of 5 couples) here eating, drinking and playing Apples to Apples. They have HUGE selection of board/box games for the use of their customer. Their cheese sandwiches are amazing! The best part was having the server toss dollar bills up in the air and stick them to the ceiling. Once a year they pull down all of the money and donate it to a chosen charity. Very fun place to eat after the Minhas Brewery tour!

“This place is living on its past”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2012

It was never a great restaurant but after Huber sold it, it's a shadow of its former self. There are better options on the square, namely Pancho & Lefty's.

“This place is a must!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2012

Have the local beer and a brat served on a soft roll with mounds of fresh sauerkraut at this local spot. It does not get any better than this. I had an 8 oz glass of beer from the brewery down the street and an 8 oz. of Spotted Cow from the brewery in the neighboring town. The staff here is great-we contributed to the ceiling art which they appreciated. (You have to ask when you get there.) Enjoy.

Neat place to stop in for a cheese sandwich and a beer. See the dollar bill covered ceiling and the murals on the wall. Good service and friendly atmosphere
