I ordered Pork Schnitzel with gravy. We knew it would be a large meal, so didn't want to fill up on soup or salad. We shared a bowl of Potato Leek Soup---delicious!! When the schnitzel came, I sampled the sides--very tasty. Then tried to cut a piece off the end. Finally sawed it off and after chewing and chewing removed... More

When everyone else in this restaurant is German, you know you have hit the dining jackpot. We went for the early bird special and could not be more pleased with the price, service, and food. I had the pork schnitzel with Bavarian potato salad---be sure to specify if you want the potato salad hot or cold and the hot, creamy... More

Great food, great service, beautifully decorated. Waitresses in full german dress. Always have great results here and often take friends with us who have not been there before. There is also an early bird menu.

I saw the place while driving down 19 and just made it in time for the lunch specials. Great German food, and beer for a reasonable price.

This is a great German restaurant for those who've never been to Germany or don't remember how dining there is enjoyed. The schnitzel is roasted (pork or veal) but deep fried if chicken. The potato salad was quite good though while the potato pancakes were greasy. So.... it was okay. BUT there is Paulaner on tap. And that is all... More

Really good food in a charming setting. There is only beer and wine here, but the choices are many with a slant obviously to German. The waitstaff is good with a little bit of fun sarcasm. They turn a normal meal into a fun evening. Everything on the menu is good. Do not go here if you are in a... More

Driving past this restaurant a few times I always thought it looked small and kind of dumpy, but since we love German food we decided to give it a try. It was a Saturday afternoon at 4:30 and I didn't think I would need a reservation but made one anyway and I am glad we left a message on their... More

The owner is German and so are the waitresses. Great German beer on tap. The clientele is mostly older retired people. Atmosphere is low key quiet. A little expensive but worth it when your on vacation. I will definitely come here again.
