Marikka's is small but very homey. The food was good and the service was great! Reminded me of my German grandmother's cooking.

I was meeting up with HS friends, one I hadn't seen in 35 years. Since we all met and went to HS in Munich, Germany, we wanted to see what Marikka's was all about. I had a Hofbrau Maibock, we shared an app sampler and I ordered the Jägerschnitzel (with red cabbage and fried potato) and finished it off with... More

Very good service. Casual, relaxing atmosphere. Good menu selection. Everyone in our group enjoyed their food. Possibly the very best sauerkraut I have ever had!

We had 17 in our group. Loved that we weren't rushed. We stayed and visited well pasted us finished eating. I didn't hear 1 complaint, other than we ate too much, bc it was so delicious and rich. It took many of us back to the food we had when we went to Germany for another family reunion. Very much... More

Large enough menu choices, lacking some usual German options, but what is offered is well-prepared. Huge beer list, with several on draft and dozens in bottles. Second time for us; we will return if we overnight in Lexington. Not high-priced. Friendly, German-speaking wait staff.

You can get a nice dinner here for about $10. We often get Italian sausage or bratwurst with green beans and mashed potatoes. Very tasty. They have a giant fish sandwich with French fries too, for the less adventurous. Lots of German options. Occasionally they have live music..some Friday's. Go. You will like it!

Visited for dinner. Atmosphere not appealing but wouldn't matter if food was great. Food was ok. I've had great German food so I know the difference. Snitzal was not particularly good. Not good flavor. I had goulash ,it was good, noodles were not. But the kicker was the apple strudel. Terrible. Doughy and under cooked. Reheated in the microwave. Our... More
