Nice friendly service. Menu looked appealing but expensive. Food was definitely not worth what we paid. Small portion and not very good. Tourist rip off....but wait...we are Australian! Try somewhere else.

Huge meals and busy restaurant during holiday season. The schnitzel's were huge but slightly overlooked. The service was ok and the young waitress was trying her best but they could have done with more staff to ensure drinks service was kept up. Great view from the dining area.

Being of German decent we eat it wherever we can. This has to one of the best German feasts we've had on the east coast. Great fast service, fresh food and the best sauerkraut we've had in years. Now called Bavarian on the Beach. Well done, we'll be back!

Short and sweet. Our waitress whom I think could also be an owner, rude. This left a bad taste in my mouth, the service that is. My family didn't enjoy themselves. The whole experience made me regret leaving the house. Lift your game guys I'm sure you can do better.

Reasonably true German food. Lets face it the Germans know how to do sausages and here they are good. We liked the platter for two served by waitresses in costume. Eating is mainly outside but on the night we dined, it was windy but we still enjoyed the night. Good German beer also.

Thank Bryan F
