We had always loved this restaurant and went by Saturday to satisfy ourselves that it was closed. There was a construction permit in window, so maybe there is hope that they will remodel and reopen sometime in future. We had found another great German restaurant...More

Although I was never overly impressed with the food or the friendliness, it was the only German restaurant for miles around. It will be missed (something was better than nothing at all).

This German restaurant could easily hold it's own in a city like New York! Reservations a must to get a table.

Consider by many people as one of our region and nation's best German restaurants. Pretty good access from US321 and I-40. Worth a trip just to eat there.
