Have no idea about how the food or services are as they dont take credits cards. We don't usually carry around large amounts of cash. They said they would take a check but geez it's the 21st Century. Even the darn Army's Restaurant takes them....More

Great food, neat atmosphere and we enjoy it every time we are there. The portions are huge and we always take food home. It’s old style, neighborhood dining at its best.

The food was German. It was good. The service was attentive. But it lacked verve. We haven't been back.
