We had a great dinner here. Nice atmosphere with comfortable seating. A little different menu with some unusual selections. Food is well prepared with ample portions. Service was efficient and friendly. Nice wine list. I even found a new favorite. Fair pricing. Would definitely return.

Eiderdown focuses on German cuisine with American/Southern accents. House made sausages and pretzels are some of the favorites. There's a full bar and 21 taps featuring many German beers. We have liter mugs also!! Outdoor seating and seasonal specials and cocktails are also available.
