We really enjoyed this fun place. The food was wonderful and the service was even better. It was just a fun family friendly place.

I stopped by here for brunch this weekend. The beer and pretzel hit the spot and the German pancake was better than Oma's, just as advertised! The staff and customers were all very friendly. We had several people stop by our table just to chat....More

With limited seating and limited food selection, the most enjoyable part of this restaurant was the beer. Service was practically unavailable with only one server for the whole place. Food was very limited in selections and when the sausage plate was put on the table,...More

Walking into this place was like a flashback in time. I was in Munich years ago and it made me think of a beer hall and some of the beer gardens we went to over there! There was kind of a band playing. It was...More
