Let me start by saying to SAVE ROOM FOR DESSERT! The beautiful dessert tray will make it difficult to choose just one. If you are anywhere near Lynchburg, you must stop by. This restaurant is family owned and operated and our family has been eating here since we moved here 10 years ago. Our favorite time to eat here is... More

The food is always top-notch, the service always great. There is a genuine chef with 30 years experience running this place, and it shows every time we eat there. We had fried oysters and Oysters Florentine tonight, but we have also had all the varieties of veal, most of the salads ... the lobster bisque is the best we've had.... More

The food was outstanding. Have only eaten there once and it was a bit crowded & noisy, but the atmosphere was very nice. If I'm back downtown I'll probably stop in for a bite. I'd recommend it.

I always make a point of having at least one meal while in town. Terrific food, great service and a very nice wine selection.

They always treat us like family. We've tried their seasonal specials - all have been great! ! Oyster specials now going on. We're going down soon. Excited about our visit.

This is a German run restaurant. The food is delicious and the desserts are homemade with a good variety. I love the banana foster cheesecake! Great place for a date night or just having coffee/dessert.

We had dinner with friends recently at Main Street and we enjoyed the Octoberfest atmosphere. I ordered the sauerbraten and it was very good. My wife ordered pork medallions and she enjoyed the meal, but we were disappointed with the quality of the spaetzle. The German beers are an added plus and the desserts were outstanding.

What a wonderful gem to discover! We did plan ahead and made dinner reservations, and were seated promptly. Cozy place, converted space not very large. The menu was a lot more German/European than I had expected, and they were just starting their Octoberfest menu. That being said, there were some wonderful choices. It’s very often the case that I’ll peruse... More

Own your table for the night, as is done in Europe. You're entering a time-warp, so leave impatience outside. And dine with superb quality food and kind, willing staff. Top-notch food-October means German specialities and if you lie Roulade and red cabbage and pastries from The Old World...look no further. Flaws include a minimum of meat in some soups and... More

My wife and I have been here many times, and it's always excellent. They serve high quality, European (German/Swiss) food that is plated very well. The atmosphere is quiet and romantic, and there is always something new on the menu. They roll a dessert cart around to your table after dinner, but I would recommend ordering either the Crème Brulee... More
