The place was great. It's set up like a beer cellar. Food was awesome and plentiful. I recommend the smoked pork chops. As previous poster said, dinners come with soup, salad and dessert. Well worth visiting!

We loved this restaurant. Our party had at least five different entrees and all were delicious. They even had small plates for those not wanting a large meal. Service was efficient and friendly. We felt this was an experience. Loved it.

There were seven of us for dinner on 10/3/15, to enjoy Oktoberfest. The food and drink is excellent, just remember to make reservations because it always fills up, and if you want music go Friday night, they open at 5:00pm
