Nice to be back out to eat at a local restaurant.

Wish they would bring the chicken wursts back permanently. They are their best.

Second time here and I think it’s safe to say it’s officially our favorite! Staff has always been extremely friendly. The food is AMAZING and worth the 45 minute ride for us! Go there. Like now.

We enjoyed outdoor seating on our visit, though we had a choice of being indoors or outdoors. My wife had a chicken cutlet with asparagus and spaetzle and I had two different German sausages with mashed potatoes. We shared pretzel bites. They have an awesome draft beer list. I could easily have had a meal trying all the items on the list, but I enjoyed an American wheat beer and a special pineapple-papaya sour beer, which my wife had as well. They offered a dark wheat beer from Germany, which was tempting, but at 9% alcohol I suspect I would have slept all the way home.

Service was excellent--timely but not pushy, On the whole, we were quite pleased. We highly recommend the Devil's Acre Tavern and we look forward to returning ourselves.

The food was tasty, drinks were great and service was very good. The only detrimental part was the noise level. Very difficult to have a conversation without raising your voice. At that noise level the background music was unnecessary and added to the increase of noise.

When we arrived we were seated pretty promptly. No one was there on a Sunday early evening around 5:30. When asked about drinks I was old there was NO tap water, only bottled. I had no idea I would pay 2.00 for a bottle of water. I could buy a case for 3.00 and a much better brand at that. Then we ordered dinner, no bread nor salad with the dinner. The dinner was a modest size for the price and average tasting. Nothing special. It was a real let down after some of the raves we heard from people. I guess sandwiches might be the specialties but we dare not take the chance.

Food was delicious and overall enjoyed our visit. However, two gripes, need more tables that are not bar high tables and would of liked fries, chips or side dish included with the sandwich price.

Interesting menu- a bit pricey for some items on the menu. Really enjoyed the Stuffed Tots appetizer. Be careful pulling in- parking lot is crowded and if you pull in too quickly you could end up hitting another vehicle.

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.
