The food was definitely not gourmet. The menu was the basic schnitzel with fries found throughout this area of Switzerland. Two of our children are celiac so the manager came out and made sure the food was gluten free to accommodate our children. While our server seemed to not speak a word of English, the manager took over and helped her complete the meal for us. Overall the service was prompt and attentive. The restaurant is right on the main town square which provides an excellent spot from which to people watch and generally enjoy Appenzell life.
