The place is quaint but that’s all it’s has going for it. The food is something you’d get in a high school cafeteria. Large portions of bland food. My potato pancakes were cold and not crisp. The sad thing is that they could have been...More

Outstanding German Food with an extensive menu; Service was excellent! Located on Pittsburgh's Northside. Several dining areas besides the bar with TV screens to watch NFL/NHL sports.

Stopped for dinner in the bar area and were not disappointed. We had the beer sampler, and a beer each to go along with our meals. We started with the Bavarian pretzels which were fantastic. Then I had the sampler of schnitzel, bratwurst, Knackwurst. Came...More
