Had one of their dinner salads, nothing outstanding but satisfactory for this type of restaurant. Service was good. Three friends had steak entrees and said they were satisfied with their requests on how they wanted theirs cooked. We sat outside where smoking is allowed. Unfortunately...More

Restaurant is situated on the edge of the harbour. You sit and watch the sailboats floating in the sunset. The food and service was also fantastic. My eisbein was cooked to perfection.

Exactly what you would expect from the dros, nice bar area with a jukebox and the locals seem to love it. Good vibe.
