Just like the Gerst House in Nashville, very boring flavors. No way were the meals reminiscent of original German fares. About the only items with any flair were the sauerkraut and draft beers. Spatzle was out of the box, at least the gravy was from...More

Had lunch her. Loved the Rueben sandwich, one of the best I've ever had. Our group shared the sausage sampler and potato pancakes which were also very good. Good veer selection. Service was good. Note: portions are big/ Good atmosphere for this place.

The title of this review means "Good Food" in German, and that's exactly what I enjoyed at dinner. Cool vintage building, complete with bouncy wood floors. Great beer selection. Had the sausage sampler and smoked pork chop, and both were very good. Service was swift.

The service is good, nice selection of food, ethnic German food. The ribs were delicious and enough for the price. Overall, food is good but not outstanding. I like the reuben.

If you are German (or not)...you will be reminded of all of the tasty things you grew up with around the table! Corned Beef & Cabbage is outstanding! Many things are great...pick your favorite food memory and I am sure they have it.

Great German food with a large variety. Try the pig knuckles, they're really good. Located in a historic area with many other restaurants and bars to visit

Don’t miss a trip to this nostalgic German Style restaurant. This former hardware and seed store decor was integrated into the renovation. There seems to be a full menu of generously proportioned meals to choose from. Prices are very fair and includes a wide selection...More
