We went with friends who love near the Rathskeller and recommended it. And it was well worth the trip. Good food (especially the burgers), good drinks (especially the beers). Service was good and the prices are reasonable. Overall, a good value.

Nice food, good service, for a "simple" meal. Not gourmet, burgers etc. Good location off Main St., out door dining area, large bar.
