Good food, good service in a quaint old house. This is a family owned business with home cooked food. Lots of locals frequent this restaurant Often have Getman smorgasbord.

We travel to Germany frequently because we have family there, so we have eaten in a lot of restaurants during the last 10 years. Hoover's buffett has a great choice of items, all with an authentic flavor.

I use to come here with my parents in the 1970's when it was the Nursery Tea Room. I was a little disappointed with the Weiner Schnitzel and probably never order it again. The potato pancakes were...

Although we don't have much to compare this to (as far as authentic German food) we found the food to be appetizing, tasted fresh not frozen or boxed. The Potato salad did taste like my grams, the red cabbage was perfectly done. We both ordered the buffet and it was worth the money. The staff were very friendly, place was... More
