Love dining local for that fantastic experience. I highly recommend this place for its charm, food and atmosphere. I like the Veal and Spaetzle plate. Huge portions. Been there many times and have recommended it to our guests of the Silver Heart Inn Bed and Breakfast. They always come back happy too!

Nice, small German place. The wait staff was great, and the food was unexpected. I loved everything about this place. The spatzle was my favorite.

This was our first visit and we were not disappointed. The funnel bier went down smooth. We both had the Jaegerschnitzel and I added the spaetzle, authentic at that. After living in Germany for four years, I have to say this was among the best of German cuisine in America. The only disappointment was American-style salad with thick dressing. Really... More

we had lunch. it was moderately priced. coffee is the best in town. German food is authentic. It lacks in ambiance, but the food more than makes up for it. Waitress was very friendly and helpful in making a choice. I would eat here again. We are not German, but German food is our favorite and seek out German Restaurants... More

The staff is always very friendly and accommodating when we are here. The food is always very good. We always enjoy the selection of German beers they offer. Plus, they always have our favorite side dish, spaetzle.

Delicious, authentic German meals. Jaegerschnitzel and Zigeuner Schnitzel were excellent. Red Cabbage set it all off. Side order of warm potato sald was like the dessert. 13 year old foodie Grandson went nuts ove the flavors.
