The best salad wraps I've had, and I've tried many. Very filling and portions are good. Food comes hot and on time. Busy place so it can get a little loud. Servers are the best.

This is a German restaurant. It is very, very German. You get German food,. They play German music on the accordian. For what it is, it is very good,. But you need to like all things German, especially the food.

The Escargo was the best I've ever had. We also had the Seafood Schnitzel which was excellent.. We are planning to take some family members in mid August. I know they'll really, really enjoy the experience.

Traditional old style German venue. Seating was quick, service slowed appreciably as dinner progressed. The menu is predictable. Good choice of beers. The schnitzel was very overdone. This place needs a better cook. We did not stay long. Mostly disappointing evening. Not recommended.
