The Jägerschnitzel was really good. Very disappointed that they don’t carry any fruit Brandy’s either from Germany or Hood River.

A good bar/restuarant scene - post modern style. We went there when it is not too busy so it is difficult to assess what it is like when it is busy (a true test to how they handle the flow). Food was enjoyable and presented well. Beer - good pour. Location - can be a busy spot since it shares with Best Buy, Winco, and others - but in theory, it is good for the restuarant to keep business flowing.

This continues success of the Gustav's chain is really good. The fondue is to die for, the schnitzel is wonderful. It comes with two sauces, Madeira and paprika, both excellent. The sausages are authentic too. Give it a try.

This isn't authentic German food. It is a fusion of German and I don't eve know what else.

Two of us went there with Open Table reservation (didn’t need reservation BTW) and the table was ready. Service was good, eggs benedict was excellent as was a burger. Special requests were followed through on. Beer was good too though first choice was not available.
Wish they had used all the TV screens for different game, some old NCAA playoff was on all channels....in July.

We went here later to replace Gustav's that had already closed. Food was good and wait staff was helpful and nice. Happy Hour after 9 was a great option. It was all worth going again, but nothing magical.

Food was awesome and uniquely German. Service was refreshingly friendly. We wish the restaurant itself were tucked away in a more quiet neighborhood...it is a bit of an oasis in a giant parking lot...but you never escape the view of, ultimately a parking lot. That's a bummer, because the food and beer were awesome and we'd really like to go back.

Food was great, but the service was slow. We had to go ask if we had a server after waiting a long time after being seated. The waitress did not check back with us very often. I would go back and try it again though for the atmosphere and food.

We waited for over an hour after we ordered to get our food & the food was just okay. Nothing super memorable. Sausage was too salty & the spatzel’s meat to breading ratio was off. We had kids too & they sat nicely for an hour but they were getting antsy. The table next to us who got seated about the same time left because their food was taking too long. They need to get a system down to get food out faster.

My husband wanted to eat here for Father's Day brunch. We had been here for a Saturday brunch before and it wasn't too crowded, but we figured that wouldn't be the case on Father's Day at 11am. It was about half-full when we arrived, and nearly full when we left. Since it took awhile to get our food last time, we ordered the BarGarten Board as an "appetizer" - wow - lots of great food on the board - bread, 2 kinds of sausage, mustards, butter, radishes, pickles, cheese wedge, prosciutto, warm german potato salad, and a green salad. We took about half of that home. For our entrees, we each ordered the chicken-fried schniztel, which is served with mashed potatoes and an awesome sausage gravy. So good you wanted to lick the plate clean! We'll definitely be back to try more of the brunch menu (only available on the weekends) and the regular menu.

After having another restaurant cancel our Father's Day reservation twice with no information I was desperate for some place to go. We're a family of 7 so finding seating for that many is tough. I've driven past this place a few times so decided to give it a try. Well worth it! Server was polite and attentive, food was delicious, drinks were kept filled. And it was priced very reasonably. Our budget was $200 and we came in way under that.

We sat outside so can't really judge the noise level but everything was very good. Waiter was efficient and food was good, with a nice selection of beer. Didn't know until we got there that there is no Happy Hour on Saturdays as I don't remember seeing that on the website. Will definitely go again.

We really love the food, but this is the 3rd time the service has been less than great. We went there for my sons 24th Birthday (he is in the Navy and was on leave). There were 5 of us. It took over an hour to get the fondue. The meals were about 40 minutes after that (it was not busy). The waitress brought 1 of the meals, then told us they were out of one of the items that two people in our party ordered. About 10 minutes later two of the other meals came, and there was 1 left of the dinner that my son and husband ordered so they brought the 1. My husband ordered soup and his came last. So by the time all the meals came - the rest were cold. The waitress seemed out of it and did not care. The manager/bartender seemed to care, but it didn't make the food warm.

We enjoy this place very much. The management is TERRIFIC - they are always seen and they walk around and check on things. The service staff is exceptional. Very aware, attentive and knowledgeable. When we are looking for someplace with "energy" this is a good fit. Not a place for a quiet, romantic dinner.

LOVE that they allow for a reservation.

Wonderful food. It brought back great memories from life in Germany where we thoroughly enjoyed the food. The entire staff was attentive and welcoming. Although we are only visitors to Oregon, we look forward to our next trip back to this particular area where we will, most definitely, come back to this restaurant!!!

The food was delicious and moderately priced. The beer selection is great! Outdoor seating is enjoyable. Inside is less pleasant; music was too loud for dining and talking, and the high ceilings made sound reverberate even more. But, we were quickly accommodated to the patio, which was great!

Easter Sunday was our first visit. We started with the cheese fondue which was very good. My wife had Prime rib and liked it. I had the veal jagerschnitzel which I thought was over-breaded, over-seasoned, and under-sauced (absorbed by the breading, probably).

We had the Easter brunch buffet. The food was delicious! Great variety. For a buffet $28 per person was a little pricey but it was a holiday. I would say the Buffett was worth more like $20-24

We are a couple of old retired guys who enjoy going out once a week for supper. The service was very good, saw this place while we were in that part of town so, I made reservations, the greeting was friendly and we were seated as soon as we entered the facility. The drinks tasted good although the whiskey sour could have used a few more fruits in it, like an orange, lemon, or pineapple slice, it only had a cherry. The take-home boxes are very small, we couldn't even fit half a Rueben in them without crushing it almost folded it in half. The price is moderate, about what I expected for a German restaurant and was right on par with Gustov's. All-in-all, we enjoyed ourselves, plus it would be a good place to watch a sporting event as well. We shall return one day, but it will not be on our routine places to visit, it wasn't that good. But good enough for every once-in-awhile.

Great place to socialize at. Atmosphere is lively but extremely LOUD. Poor acoustics makes it very noisy. Food is ok, spirits are good. Ok to bring kids.

Hello there! Thank you for your review. We installed baffling to dampen noise but the noise levels continue to be too high when the restaurant is full. We are working with an interior designer to have carpet installed to reduce the noise levels.

We celebrated my mom's 80th birthday there, everything was great, a little noisy though because of the high ceilings. Food and service was fantastic.
