Fussy teens loved the meals. “Trust the chef” was awesome. You choose meat and they bring you their special. So different and delicious. Everything made from scratch. Could hear chef pounding the meat to tenderize it in kitchen. And service was quick, too.

If you like German food you will like this restaurant. It is not crowded but the food is food. However, you must like German food to like this place.

Went with my children and we enjoyed every course! All freshly made and prepared by a family from Germany. Outside appearance does not represent the quality and friendliness of this restaurant. I would recommend it.

Family owned restaurant. We offer fresh, authentic, organic, gluten-free German Cuisine. We buy all our vegetables and eggs from the local farms. Our bratwursts are either home made or bought fresh from the farms in Lancaster. Please ask the server for gluten free options, as we have quite a few. Come in and enjoy our authentic offerings. B.Y.O.B. - and we never charge a corking fee.
