Great German food, beer, and wine. Ate here multiple times, not just because it was convenient, but because it was good and reasonably priced. It was white asparagus season when we visited, so they had a special menu highlighting this delicacy.

Absolutely the BEST true German meal we had on our 13 day travels thru Germany, Hungary, Slovakia, Austria, Czech Republic! Staff was very accommodating when we wanted to substitute sides to the offered menu selections. The BEST authentic Veal Schnitzel ever!!!! Kraut had the greatest flavor and mixed with the spaetzel it was wonderful! Desserts just as good!!! Can't forget... More

We enjoyed a late lunch of traditional favorites and some interesting options here. Two of our group were non-meat eaters, but found plenty of fish and vegetarian options. Their beer is brewed off-site, but especially for them, so is worth checking out, especially if you collect unique beers via Untappd or the like.

After having sausages, pork cutlet, pork knuckles for the past few days, I was very happy to find chicken on their menu and finally no more boiled cabbages the vegetable stew that came with my grilled chicken was tasty. The beer was good too. Service was prompt and friendly at crowded dinner time.

We stopped by for a SAs, the location is really good, a few steps from the marlet square - they have a nice beer garden in the back. The service was not great, I mean everything was working well technically but the waitress was miserable, zero smile, nohing. Anyway, the food and drinks arrives promptly - we had a steamed... More

Had lunch here twice now. Service was excellent. Nice selection of entrees. Everything we had was excellent! I tried some of the regional Franken wein, and really enjoyed it. If the weather is nice, they have a little hof out the back side and it is quiet spot! Super place!

We arrived at this restaurant at approximately 3pm. There was no one there. We asked if there was still lunch available and the person appeared to be the manager there said 'of course'! She made our food herself and also served it to us. It was delicious and very reasonably priced. I will most definitely return to Rothenburg o.d.T. and... More

This restaurant is conveniently located next to the town square. We walked in on a busy Sunday evening and got a table right away. The food was very good. It was a warm, cozy treat on a cold night. Perfect end to our day in the city.

Our restaurant specializes in Franconian fare with tasty dishes like marinated beef, and moist roast pork soaked in an unforgettable gravy, and a side of red kraut and potato dumplings. Try it with a glas of Franconian wine.

Meet the locals in our restaurant, enjoy your beer in our beer garden - or just have a little break with soups, salads or sausages...
