I have been going to this place since it first opened. It used to have decent German food--nothing special, but okay. But the menu choices have narrowed to where they only have wurst and little else. But even so, it wasn't bad, until recently. Now...More

Excellent, knowledgeable bartender. Wonderful sausage, we had the Pheasant & Cognac, Rabbit & Swiss, and basic Bratwurst. I downed a HUGE Aventinus, it was delicious as was the sausage.
