Great German food like Grandmom used to make. The wheat ale went perfectly with it. Reasonable prices.

Went for Mother's Day brunch. The food is outstanding. Nice place, well run. Could do without the 80s music blaring, but outside of that, great.

The food was excellent! Great selection of beer to compliment our meal. We sat outside, road noise was a bit much. We will be back!

The food was excellent! This restaurant is great for families. The noise level the Saturday night we were there was very loud because there was a soccer team there but it was fine with us. We enjoy all the chatter after being cooped up for so long! We will definitely go back this time with the whole family!

Glad we tried this restaurant! Great atmosphere, and our waiter, unfortunately don’t remember his name was great. He was pleasant and very attentive and his service was spot on! I had the crab and kielbasa mac & cheese-unusual combination but amazing! My date and I thought the prices were a little on the higher side, but Definitely enjoyed our meal and will be back.

Trying to go out and support more local restaurants. Found this one & thought we would give it a try. So glad we did! The food, service & atmosphere were terrific. (And the prices were very reasonable too!)

We will be back frequently!

Danny, the waiter, who said he was new, was very attentive to us and constantly checked to be sure we were okay.
I was quite surprised when I asked for a 7 and 7 that they did not have Seagram's Seven. I was also a little disappointed at the dessert menu - no cheesecake and no chocolate ice cream. they did give me chocolate syrup on my vanilla ice cream but the vanilla ice cream didn't really taste too good. I thought $7.00 for ice cream was a little high.
My niece recommended the place and said it is her favorite restaurant. I am sure she will enjoy going back with the gift card I got her. I enjoyed the pork Schnitzel. I was also surprised (we got there at 3:30 PM on a Sunday) and all three ordered pork Schnitzel and they only had one. Two of us had to settle for the chicken Schnitzel. They enjoyed it.

As usual, the food was excellent. We were "celebrating" our 1st Covid19 anniversary. We were having lunch here when the first shutdowns were announced, so it seem appropriate to dine here again on this date.

Our one complaint/concern is how easily the noise level can become almost deafening. A few loud patrons and it is almost impossible to hear someone at your table.

Food, drinks, menu, and service were great. But it sure seemed like more than 50% capacity. Every table was taken and they were spaced less than 6 feet apart. Other than that, Devil's Acre can't be beat.

We love Devil's Acre! The food and service, beer and cocktails are always great! It was surprisingly crowded for our last visit on a Saturday night and the kitchen was a little slow. We'll probably stick to a weeknight for dinner there until the pandemic eases.

Great selection of craft beers. Food with a German influence which is tasty and fresh. Appetizers, burgers & entrees, something for everyone. A daily drink, pierogis, entrée and sausage/wurst special add to the menu. We have dined there several times and always enjoy our meal. The only drawback is the noise level when the restaurant is full or if large groups celebrate.

Jennifer, the server was very quick and helpful.
Clean, safe place.
Cocktails were great. Food was plentiful and tasty.
The place looked like industrial bar, not bad, but not personal favorite. High ceilings, tables far apart and cleanliness matters more right now.
Quick getaway with my husband and it was quite fun!

My husband and I enjoy going to Devils acre for the atmosphere. It’s small town feel yet upscale, trendy and a bit eclectic. I always get the same entree; Beef on a Weck with cucumber salad and a Polander beer. A nice dinner out with my husband!

DA never disappoints. We usually like to sit in the bar area, but with Covid that has been impossible. We were sat tonight at a two top in the middle of the dining room which afforded no privacy, but had a great meal and a great server.

Great Find with a fun twist on German food. The pretzel bites were a wonderful place to start. My boyfriend ordered the Two links and a side and I got the chicken schnitzel - we were both drooling over our respective choices with enough envy of each others that a few bites were shared. Looking forward to our next visit already!
