This is a large German restaurant at the edge of a touristy town, Fredericksburg. Pleasant surroundings. My wife's sausage plate was fine. I had the osso bucco. It was OK but could have been spiced up a bit. Salads and soup not particularly good. The...More

My husband and I went there and being German I probably had higher expectations than other people would. $20 for a small plain schnitzel is ridiculous. It comes with one side and soup or salad. Well we both chose to have a salad which was...More

Over the years the subject of why this restaurant won’t get better or fix their lighting has come up and been mentioned to the Staff many times. The ceilings are tall and for some strange reason they have poorly and far apart spaced pink lights...More

There’s GOT to be better German food in this quaint town. This is not the place. Our party of 8 was met at the door by a group of workers all laughing and speaking SPANISH. 😳. The overhead music was Spanish too. I have nothing...More
