The sausage sampler was excellent and more than one person can eat. Our waitress, Lisa was very friendly and gave excellent service. I only wish they had played German music.

Bosco was great! The food was amazing! They accomodated my parents request for brown mushroom sauce on their schnitzel rather than the regular. Portions were huge which was perfect for us all to share and sample multiple things. Dessert was incredible as well!!More

So convenient for Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, wonderful raised deck overlooking Parkway with very comfortable high tops. The breakfast is wonderful and reasonably priced. Dog friendly on the outside area. Do not overlook this Restaurant and tavern with German food.
