Visited here on Friday with family and was really disappointed with the delays. Beers after 60 minutes and entrees after mains. I don’t think Hitler would have put up with sort of service himself! The food itself was good but the service was nein!

Schnitzel sizes are huge! Menus is a little difficult to read and definitely not enough wait staff on but enjoyed the range of German beer and the potato salad is so good

Der Metz is my choice when eating Schnitzel. It tastes just like what I have eaten in Switzerland. They do not scrimp on the potion size. Good German music in the background. They can get busy.
