Brisket was very good. Everything else just so so. Kielbasa and kraut was overly salty. Fried pickles, where to begin as I will consider myself a connoisseur, were odd in both their small size and taste. Whatever the batter / seasoning, it overpowered the pickle...and the pickle lacked that deep deli flavor. Burger was average. Overall a bit overpriced for the quality of the food. As for the location, it's right in the middle of a busy intersection. Not sure what is so great about the view other than you can see some woods, it's really not anything to go out of your way for. The outside area is nice and large though and that was a plus. The inside reminds me of a PA ski area with large signs hanging from the ceiling, almost like an amusement park. Dust and webs on most of the overhead items. Overall decor a bit dated and in need of some TLC.More

Reviewed 12 November 2020

Dog friendly..Outside tent dinner dining .Friday was 68 degrees and a little windy. Saturday was 42 degrees and our first experience with outside dining in colder windier conditions. On Friday one side of the tent was open and both entrances were open and my wife...wore a sweater..I was comfortable. On Saturday..one side was open and the entrances were mostly closed and my wife and other diners were cold, even with coats. Depending on which side you sat on..you were more windy. They have sufficient heaters, Its just that outside dining in colder weather presents everyone with more difficulties in order to keep ventilation sufficient. Booths have plastic in between each booth behind your head. Space heaters were plentiful and well attended and mostly next to each set of booths . Tables were wiped down after each use and servers were masked and efficient. The food portions are large and I would describe them as well prepared comfort food. The ribs are St Louis Dry rubbed and good..although I do not care for that style my server recommended a side of barbeque sauce and that did the trick. French onion soup was terrific and I usually do not order that .The Salmon is cooked well.The Mac Daddy mac and cheese is their specialty although was too breaded for my taste. Cole slaw was plentiful and good.Turkey Avocado BLT for my wife and delicious with take home sized portions. Deserts are lovely and plentiful .Double Chocolate Sundae with homemade ice cream and The Vanilla Cheesecake stood out for us. Parking lot is large with 2 designated take out spots Because of the 45-1.25 hour wait during Covid there is an endless circle of cars trying for a spot so beware! It will take some time unless you are lucky. While we were waiting we took a walk with our dog About 2 hundred yards above them there is a sister Biergarten with mostly the same food.Fire pits along a tree sheltered walkway and the main dining areas had tables and heaters amidst and some fire front couch seating. Although there were some openings in a colder area reservations are a must for the fire pits. One thing...during our Saturday dining..a family group of 12 noisily entered the tent.Three masked adults ,children and young adults ranging from 4-9-12-16-18 and a baby .The youths were mostly unmasked and loud as heck including going in and out of the tent entrance.The baby started crying ( I think an adult took the baby out of the tent at some point)...but they were a VERY loud group. At one point..the patrons sitting next to them had to ask them to quiet down and watch their language because he had kids present. It occurs to me that along with a need for better parenting..kids and teens have to be appraised by their parents that outside tent dining is not a circus environment and the same decorum should be observed inside and out.Perhaps the servers ect. should have gotten a manager but to there defence,,I do not believe there were many present at that time but after the first 10 minutes it was plainly evident the adults weren't doing anything as they should have.More

Enjoyed reading your review - thoughtful and comprehensive. I would have said something to the very loud group - having said that in today's world it can be a bit of challenge. Thanks. Respectfully, Trip R.

We are observing Corvid techniques so we were pleasantly surprised at the outside dining tents attention to their patrons while serving large portions of good food. We ate there Friday evening in 68 degree temperatures and Saturday...Saturday was 42 degrees so we had our first...experience of this future colder weather. The outside booths have plastic barriers in between each set, the space heaters were efficient. On Friday the two entrances were open and one side of the tent was open so it was breezy but manageable. The servers were efficient and the food portions were large and comfort food was served. Of one mention..the St Louis Ribs were dry rubbed and although they were good I do not care for them..our server suggested a side of barbeque sauce and that made the ribs great!. French Onion Soup was terrific..and the Salmon portions were large and cooked well. On Saturday..it was cold and breezy..one side still open but the flaps were down..it was still cold , the propane space heaters can only go so far and they had an adequate number of them in my opinion...a family of at least 12 came into the tent.with a crying baby 4-9-15-18 year olds,the kids and most of the young adults were unmasked although the parents were. So loud and running in and out of the entrances ..and finally one patron next to them had to tell them to quiet down.It occurs to me that along with a need of better parenting..many larger groups with children may not realize that outside tent dining in this environment is not a circus atmosphere and decorum should be the same as indoor dining. All in all this is a place I would strongly recommend. Tips..Seating can take 45 minutes to an 1.25 hrs..the outside parking lot is large..but it is jammed with patrons waiting to be seated ..they have 2 designated spaces for take out arrivals so there is an endless circling of cars looking for a space they have a sister Biergarten 200 yds away that has really cool outside fire pits and is all outside dining with many of the same food options..we walked there while we were waiting...I was actually sorry we didn't find it earlier .Fire pits are reservations.More
