Traveled about 30 miles to get away from the Franchise restaurants. The food was very good and plentiful. We visited on a Friday which featured live soft music. Very comfortable. I think some other reviews of smoke pertained to many years ago.

We were searching for a German restaurant and found it here !! Starts with buffet salad bar, then assortment of sausages and then Apple Strudel. PERFECT !! Waitress could have been a little more enthusiastic since we were so happy on vacation.

This is an old hotel and restaurant. The hotel is very interesting. They have much of the historical information available. They have a german restaurant on site that is good but a bit pricey for the location.

We have stopped here before when traveling through the area and enjoyed it very much. This time, however, we stopped for a late lunch and were disappointed with our food. As usual, the restaurant sparkled and the service was good. We both had the French...More
