Good pork and Jaeger schnitzel. Generous portions. Jaeger schnitzel was covered in mushroom gravy. Red cabbage was excellent. Pork schnitzel was good but I had to request extra lemon which were half slices which are good for beverages but difficult to squeeze on meat. Wedges or a half lemon would be a better accompaniment. Spaetzel was good but dry, there was only about a teaspoon of gravy on it. Service was poor. There was only one server for the entire restaurant and she had trouble keeping up. She never returned to our table to see how the meals were or to refill our beverages. Took over 5 minutes to get menu, our beverages arrived after 15 minutes. It was another 15 minutes before our food arrived.

What a nice surprise to find this place! Loved the schnitzel, red cabbage and potato pancake. Getting ready for dessert. Service was outstanding!

The small place, modestly decorated, greets you with a large screen TV showing aerial scenes of Germany and has Bavarian folk music playing on the speakers. The menu features the kinds of dishes you might expect from a family-type German Restaurant: wienerschnitzel, red cabbage, knockwurst and kraut, spaetzle, and potato pancakes. I had a decent jaeger schnitzel with mushroom gravy. My wife had the wienernschnitzel. Two generous breaded cutlets came with each order. Enough food for take-along. We shared a Black Forest cupcake for desert. Okay, a decent German meal, but not the best I’ve had in the Virginia corridor (By the way, that would have to be a tie between the Edelweis Restaurant, south of Staunton, VA, or a little place in Weaverville NC called the Bavarian Restaurant and Biergarten).

Went for dinner on our anniversary. We were greeted and seated by a delightful young man who was an exchange student from Germany. He engaged in conversation and took our orders. After about half hour he came back to say there were "technical difficulties in the kitchen". He came back to say our food should be out soon. Finally an hour and 15 minutes from when we arrived our food was out. The potato cakes I ordered were burned on the edges and on the underneath side. The red cabbage was good and the pork schnitzel was perfect. Portions were large. The young woman who was also serving guests came over twice to apologize for the wait. She brought out a complimentary Black Forest Cupcake as an apology for our wait. She stated she had only one chef. Even with one chef service should have been better. There were only 4 other couples there during our time there. Probably would not try again.
