Been there once. Food great and service friendly and efficient. The place is always packed during tourist season (spring/summer). Prices are moderate to high.

All visitors must eat at the Brauhaus. The kids love the train. Adults love the German atmosphere and the great breakfasts. We heard they were being sold awhile ago. I sure hope not!!!

We tried the goulash recently, with disappointing results. Potatoes and carrots were so over cooked they were just tasteless mush. We ordered our meals and the food was delivered before our drinks arrived. This tells me they must have a big pot of goulash in...More

Sorry for the late response but unfortunately we will not have one this year. Our main goal was to get the basics down first before we try anything of that scale. Next year we will make up for it.

Unfortunately her husband died from cancer and then her son died from a medical condition. It was a very sad time for her and she decided to sell the restaurant.
