The potato pancakes were tasty but also thin, the red... More

We travel to Germany frequently because we have family there, so we have eaten in a lot of restaurants during the last 10 years. Hoover's buffett has a great choice of items, all with an authentic flavor.

Although we don't have much to compare this to (as far as authentic German food) we found the food to be appetizing, tasted fresh not frozen or boxed. The Potato salad did taste like my grams, the red cabbage was perfectly done. We both ordered the buffet and it was worth the money. The staff were very friendly, place was... More
