Not very organized on the seating arrangements. Seems like took forever to be seated. Then took a very long time to receive our food. Food was ok, but not good enough to wait that long. Very disappointed .

We have eaten here several times; the food is good and the portions are very generous. They also have a good beer selection, it is not identical to German food but it is close, this is a good place to eat.

If you want giant mugs of beer, schnitzel, sausages, sauerkraut, and any other German food you can think of, this is the place to go. I've never been disappointed here, and consider it a required visit during any trip to Huntsville. The decor isn't new,...More

The other reviewers that call this food authentic aren’t kidding. We’ve traveled all over Germany and this food is the real deal. Wiener schnitzel was nice- go for the potato salad over fried potatoes. Jaeger schnitzel was amazing! Sauerkraut was a little too salty, but...More

A friend suggested we try this shopping center located restaurant. We learned that the business started in 1972 and moved to its current shopping center location in 1989. We arrived hungry for "authentic" German cuisine and were pleased with the great flavors. This establishment is...More

Their desserts are on display when you first walk in the restaurant. When you want a dessert, you get up from the table, look, and choose.

I do not have a desert menu but, just imagine any delicious cake you may want and they have it, plus baklava.
