This was the best restaurant in Amana. Its just a shame that it's not there but its being remodeled as a beer hall. Also closed is the Brickhouse restaurant

This place has closed and will open later this summer as a German Bar. We are looking forward to Mill Stream Brewing opening/expanding to this location.

The food here is fabulous and reasonably priced. It is served family style and the salad is especially delicious. We purchase a container of their house dressing to bring home each time we go. I highly recommend this place when visiting Amana.

Homey, charming atmosphere; inexpensive, but with huge portions, served Family-Style. They make you feel a part of the family-- their big, German family! Great food and wonderful ambience.
