We were traveling and spent a few day in Independence so tried this place. I had cord on blue which was good but too dry, veggies were very good and the potatoes were good. Service was excellent and presentation of food was good

Very good food. Children liked burgers and warm potato salad along with pan fried potatoes. We will return our next visit to this city.

While reading other less flattering reviews of this establishment, I am left wondering whether they dined at the same place that I did. The Jagerschnitzel was nicely prepared and I chose a side of sauerkraut to stimulate my palate. The excellent food was only equaled...More

We have been going to Reinland for 10+ years. The beef and pork dishes are always great. This time I tried a chicken dish, and WOW was it great. We each get something different and share. It's a great way to enjoy all they have...More
