The meat (beef and pork) was very good and tender, and the spaetzel was wonderful! Would have liked the food to have been a little warmer, though. Definitely recommend the food. Note: There were not a lot of acceptable side dishes for those who don't...More

I'm from Germany and have yet to find a place that serves decent German food - it's mostly pretty awful for me! So we gave this place a try during a trip to Hagerstown and were pleasantly surprised! Had the Wiener Schnitzel (very good) and...More
