Stopped here last Saturday for lunch. We ordered beer and appetizers. Cheese plate, sausage and kraut plate and their giant pretzel with mustard. Everything was awesome 👏

We had a super fun, Wed evening dinner! Restaurant wasn't very busy, but everybody was enjoying themselves, drinking beer & Schnapps, eating massive quantities of wonderful, authentic German cuisine, and singing along with the strolling accordion player! Highly recommended for a great evening with friends!

All of the food is authentic German. The schnitzel was wonderful and the desserts are to die for. Ate their on a Friday night. The service was excellent and we really enjoyed the strolling accordion player. I wouldn't come here if I was counting calories...More

I've eaten in many charming, century-old restaurants throughout Germany and Austria but this place looks old and neglected. One of the best (1/2 liter) Bloody Marys, even though the garnish looked like a grade-school craft project. Plain dinner salad with fresh, crisp lettuce, a slice...More

Visited with some coworkers and this is a fun place to eat and drink some German beer and food if that's your thing. The service and food were very good. The accordion player was a delight. I recommend this restaurant if you're visiting the area.

The bigger the group, the better they like it! Very family-type of place. Personally, i'd feel comfortable with folks from 0 to 120 years old in the group.
