This German restaurant never disappoints. Varied menu, dinner rolls are outstanding (take some home!). Liv e music on some weekends adds another dimension to the dining experience. About 20 minutes south of Staunton on I-81. Reservations suggested for weekends.

If you are in the mood for traditional German food, this restaurant will definitely fill the bill. The menu features plates that you would find at most German restaurants along with a nice selection of German beers on tap. I went with the special, Schweinshaxe...More

I'm always looking for good German food and was not disappointed here. I had the daily special--cabbage rolls--and it was delicious. The service was slow as there was one person handling the front, seating, ordering, serving, etc. However, I will be back again because there...More

So excited to try this place, but walked away disappointed. The atmosphere was great, with live music and rustic cabin-vibe. However, the food my girlfriend and l ordered was bland and unappealing, the only redeemer was the sauerkraut which was flavorful. And the waitress was...More

While visiting the area, my husband and I decided to eat here because I am always on the lookout for German restaurants, which seem to be "scarcer than hen's teeth"! I was doubly happy because they serve beef rouladen - the special meal my Mom...More

I have previously eaten at this restaurant in the early 2000's and thoroughly enjoyed the food, the ambience and the live music. This visit was entirely different. The saving grace during this visit was the music and service. The food was tough and inedible. My...More

Get the sampler plate so you can try a little of everything. The rhubarb pie was delicious, my first time trying, loved it. And don't forget the beer!

I've eaten there only at lunch as that is the time I am traveling through the area, so I do not know if the menu is a separate lunch menu. The good food and kind service is worth it, lunch menu or not!!!!
