Split the sampler with my wife and it was to die for. We also got a side mashed potatoes and a soft pretzel, I highly recommend the mashed potatoes. We ended with the apple crumble and it was as wonderful as could be.

It is rare to find a comprehensive menu of quality German food anywhere: a unique gem in the middle of rural Shenandoah Valley VA! The originators built this establishment from scratch to transplant good German fare here more than 35 years ago. We ate here...More
