I went there to get dinner based off of the reviews. Yes there is very limited parking, which drives stress up a little. There were people waiting outside. The inside is tiny. There is no way to stand somewhere and not be in the way....More

Didn't really see anything authentically German there. It may have been settled by Germans but not much left of that, that I could see.
