Never had a bad meal. The food is always hot, very tasty and they offer a great variety! I highly recommend reservations on the weekend. The restaurant also does great parties!

I have never been disappointed with the beer or the food at this establishment. My go to beer is the Hefewezien - reminiscent of my travels through Germany.

Not a private room, but two separate areas on the balcony level above the restaurant. They are sufficiently removed from the bustle of the first floor bar and dining areas that they feel quite private. Call Tim or Neil and... More
