Cute restaurant w ample parking in back w door to access the dining room. Staff always very pleasant and efficient. Have been here three times now. Good beer selections & German wines. We prefer the traditional schnitzel dishes but have tried the specials which have been interesting and good. A good variety of choices w ample portions at reasonable prices.... More

There was a long wait for someone get the drink order (seated outside). Ordered the Easter special dinner and it was average, nothing great. Should have ordered from regular menu. I will try again and see how the standard dishes are.

Good service, pleasant, but dishes were tasteless as least for what we had. Bratwurst was served cold and had little flavor. Red cabbage side order seemed salty. Schnitzels without a genuine German flavor. An okay restaurant for friends. Not inexpensive! Go during discount nights, but the name belies the quality if you have e re eaten in a real German...

We have been planning on dining at Munchens for 12 years and, finally, we ate there the other night. It was worth the wait, but we wished we did not wait 12 years. We started with two German draught beers. The beer started the German flavor experience for the evening. By the way, Munchens has a large selection of German... More

Cute place close to our resort. Reminded us of tour in Germany with steins, cuckoo clocks and menu. Schnitzel was tasty. Purple cabbage was also very good. The goulash was a bit salty. The apple strudel with ice cream was delicious.

We were looking for something that was open a little later and came across Checkers. Cute place with great service. Enjoyed the basket of bread and pretzels they brought to the table first thing. Everything we ordered was very good. My husband tried the apple onion soup for a starter then we shared a sampler type plate. The spaetzle and... More

I then had the apple onion soup which was great on the day, a different take on french onion but wonderful. I then had the Schweinebraten,... More

The atmosphere was wonderful, at the selection of German beers was outstanding, and the food was totally authentic and to die for. Prices were excellent and value for the wonderful meal was great. My husband had the meatloaf... More

Thought we would try something different so headed to Checkers Old Munchen. Now we are not German food experts, but we found the food different but good. The apple onion soup was the best. Sounds weird but it had a great flavor. Both of our meals were good and serving size was large. The pretzels served with mustard were great.... More

I loved how they brought German Dark Rye Bread and Hot Pretzels with Mustard to our table as soon as we were seated. The main course of bratwurst and Weiner Schnitzel was very good also. The extensive list of German beers is a little misleading, as they only have 2 or 3 of them on tap at a time. They... More
