The place was packed but we only waited 5 minutes for a seat. Glad we waited as the food was great and the staff were very sociable. Tried their traditional Thier Pils beer and schnitzel. Food didn't take long to come and atmosphere was great....More

Very well run Restaurant. People served great food without much wait. Cole slaw (cabbage), potatoes with onions, and Rosen wurst were delicious. Manager (from Thailand) really kept everything organized and made for a most pleasant meal.

Was recommended by a friend to try here for some lunch. Had the dortmunder sausage with roast potatoes, sauerkraut and mustard and it was delicious! The food is well worth the money.

Visited the bar for lunch before the Dortmund v Bayern Supercup Final. Friendly staff and atmosphere, very good traditional German food, decent beer and rustic decor. Enjoyed it to the point that we went back for some drinks later on.

We wanted traditional German food and our German relatives took us here. The food fulfilled our expectations (plenty of pork, goods-sized portions). They serve Hovel beer, a Dortmund favorite. We were there on a nice August evening and had a table in the first row...More
