Tacky decor. Lousy service. Took 35 minutes to get drinks. Another 20 minutes to take our order. When I ordered sauerbraten they said they just put it in the oven an it would take about 1 1/2 to finish. Which would have been past their...More

The service was extremely terrible. The dining experience was an hour and 45 minutes. It took 20 minutes to get drinks and another 40 to get a refill. The food had no quality whatsoever. No salad or soup was on their soup and salad bar....More

I'd heard about this place for some time and finally visited. Full of bad decorating statues and memorabilia. All of that was fun. But service was horrible and food was nonexistent. I left after 90 minutes, have never done that before.

Good selection of classic German food. Neat decor seems like your in Bavaria. Not in town it's west in the country 4 or 5 miles out in the corn fields. Cool stone house across the street

I love German food so when hubby saw the Groupon, he bought it with me in mind. We drove to tiny Fosters Pond and entered in the back door. Waited several minutes. No one came so we made our way to the dining room and...More

Well, I don't have German in-laws or family recently enough immigrated to know what good German food "ought" to be. I do know that my wife and I both enjoyed our meals which were a welcomed break from what chain restaurants and trendy places offer....More

Let me start by saying if you make snap judgements about a restaurant by looking around the dining room, don't come to Dreamland Palace without leaving your judgement hat in the car! The decor in this place is flea market vs. yard sale vs. your...More
