WOW it is still as good as always. Thought maybe with new owners the food may have deteriorated but I was wrong. Will definitely keep coming back.

I have been going to the Black Forest since I can remember. I am never disappointed with their food. We go there for family gatherings too where they do a special menu for us. I would definitely recommend eating here.

They’re is a small step on both entrance and exit but I would consider this easily managed. The washroom is accessible but I can’t say for sure about the toilet with bar. Absolutely call them, they’re very accommodating.

We went with a large group-most had a meat based order but some did have non meat dish. The salads were great and very well portioned. Everyone did rave about the schnitzel and spetzel.
