We took our daughter here for her 24th birthday and had such a wonderful time! Authentic German food and beer made for a great cultural experience. We started with the German pretzel, crispy Brussels sprouts and fried Camembert. All equally delicious but the pretzel is a must! Our dinners consisted of short ribs, lamb shank, schnitzel, bratwursts and goulash. The spaetzle was a delicious treat; similar to gnocchi. Because we went the week before Christmas, the restaurant was decorated beautifully and an added bonus was a group of carolers wandering through the dining rooms singing beautiful Christmas carols. They sang Happy Birthday to our daughter as our server presented her with the most delicious piece of German chocolate cake! At one point, the lights in the restaurant were turned off and the carolers sang Silent Night. The only lighting was coming from the Christmas tree in the dining room so you can image just how beautiful it was. The servers were quick, attentive and so friendly! The dining room was crowded and it was close quarters but it really made for a warm, homey atmosphere. This was an all-around wonderful experience and we thank the staff for making it a special birthday for our daughter.
