I have always been disappointed with German food here in the US. I've eaten at several in Texas and New Jersey and they always fell short of expectations. I am of German decent, had family members who were born there cooking me food and spent a month in Germany. This is the most authentic German food I have ever had.... More

Enjoyed an excellent meal of "Schweinboxe" (pork on bone") with my family. All had different items including sauerbraten and pork loin, for example, but there are also many non-german items available. Great draft beer assortment.

The location, host, service and finally the food are all outstanding. The sauerbraten is my favorite. All types of guests are welcomed. Spacious and old style German flare atmosphere. The dinningroom fills up fast. Oktoberfest is coming to this fine location this fall. Plenty of parking is available. Entries run from 18 to 28$. The homemade Apfel Strudel is like... More

Some of the best German food you will experience. Homemade sausages and dishes are very well prepared. Dining is casual. Portions are large.. Nice salad bar. Great variety of German beer on tap.

My family of four recently ate at this restaurant. It was the worst meal I have ever ordered in a restaurant. I shared the " Mayors platter for two" with my son. It looked like a nice assortment of food. I wanted my son to be able to try a variety of German foods. Within ten minutes of placing our... More

We love German food and were very happy to find this gem of a restaurant. Different and much better than the usual steak and burger places. We ordered the Mayor's dinner for two and were very pleased. More than enough food for two and everything was just so good and authenticly German! Their homemade sauerkraut and red cabbage were perfect... More

I went to this place with a group of people, and we ALL loved it. The food was just great, the servers were professional, and you just have to see that amazing cuckoo clock. My advice is to bring a bunch of storage containers for the meal, and leave some room for dessert. Really great place, and say hi to... More

We stumbled across this restaurant on our way to our hotel. The food was excellent. The spaetzle reminded me of how my grandmother used to make them. My husband had the wurst plate and loved it! The service here was also excellent. Will definitely go back here!
