“Greasy spoon”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2014

We had occasion to eat here a couple of times over the last three years and we always hope it will improve - it has become steadily worse. Yesterday we ate chicken club with fries. The chicken was prepackaged frozen grill-marked rubber chicken. THE FRIES WERE LITERALLY DRIPPING GREASE into our plates. It's like they had been re-dunked into hot oil over and over with no draining. Terrible food -- lovely setting and décor which is what attracts people in the first place. We complained to the waitress - we got an apology. That will be our last visit. there are other restaurants in the area that offer much better food.

“Pub in Peachland!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2014

There are two eating areas here. One is the more formal Gasthaus area, which is open evenings for dinner. We were there for lunch and the pub has indoor/outdoor seating. The outdoor area is nicely set amongst trees and flowers with cobblestone flooring. There is a wheelchair ramp for easy accessibility. It was a cool, cloudy day so we entered the indoor pub area. It was very busy, crowded, noisy and dark. Two large tables had pre-ordered the Medieval feast, which is a specialty there so that accounted for the lack of regular seating. We managed to get the last available table in the back. The server arrived fairly quickly considering the crowd. She was pleasant and smiling. The menu is varied and the food was very good with ample portions, although my husband found the buffet lacking as consisted of soup (4 choices), limited salads and buns. Three of us had the specialty burgers with crispy fries and salad. One person ordered the Thai salad with shrimp and pronounced it delicious. We would return but only if outside seating available.

“Awesome Food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2014

Awesome food, had the crispy chicken sandwhich! Can't wait to go back again this year! Love sitting on the patio but can also be fun to sit inside since the building has tons of character!

“Great german food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

Have always enjoyed the food here. The portions are extra large and very tasty. My favourite is the hunter schnitzel with red cabbage and spatzel.

“Pricey”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

Have been there on several occasions and found the food average. It specializes in German fare and that seems to be the attraction. There aren't any other restaurants in a large radius that cater to German-like food. Their schnitzel entrees are buffet-style where you pick up your accompaniments and then the server brings the schnitzel to your table. There are other options you can order from the menu. The price seems to be high for what is served. Whether from the menu or from the buffet, the food is only average. The restaurant is often very busy and tends to be on the noisy side. There is also a nice eating area outside.
