Very nice small German restaurant. The food was good, the staff was helpful and the beer was very good. Gets crowded so it's best to make reservations as it is a small space.

Sometimes you just have a taste for some good old fashioned comfort food and Checkers is the place for you. The servings are plentiful and the staff are warm and welcoming. Try it out!

A Groupon brought us to this restaurant and we were not disappointed. The sausage sampler was fantastic as was the pretzel bread. The veal schnitzel was good and the pork shank was a little gross to look at but very tasty. The place was very busy-I would suggest making a reservation.
