Good brats, pork tenderloin, beer, cake & schnitzel. But if you don't like German food, difficult to find anything to eat, other than the desserts!

I had the Rahm schnitzel and my wife had the seasonal lamb dumplings and they were both amazing. Great atmosphere and wonderful German beers on tap.

Authentic, fresh, tasty German cuisine with delicious beer. Friendly and accommodating wait staff and a fun albeit pricey little German "laden" to purchase some speciality items.
