    This restaurant has genuinely fallen in hard times and I won’t be going back. Whoever changed the schnitzel from what was a typical German dish, to a marinara covered atrocity is making some very interesting choices and liberties with the definition of German food. The Demi glacé they used for the mushroom sauce is now just tomato paste and mushrooms. My wife ordered the mushroom cream sauce veal schnitzel, it came with said marinara sauce. When she said it was supposed to be a cream sauce, they took it back and then served the same cut of meat with tomato sauce with some cream added. It’s just not an actual representation of German food anymore. Whoever the chef currently is needs to do some serious soul searching. The front of us comped the dinner that was totally different and our waiter was a really nice guy, they did everything they could. But I don’t know if the chef who originally reopened it is even there anymore, or who is currently at the helm, but it just isn’t good anymore. Stop cutting corners and focus on ingredient quality and dish consistency and you might attract some customers back. I genuinely hope you figure it out, I used to love this place as a kid and I was excited when it reopened, but now it’s falling hard.

    Food was delicious, drinks were tasty. Nice touch to listen to a live band. Tables aren't too close to each other. All food and drink came out quickly and cooked perfectly. Can't wait to go back and try other things on the menu!

    Good food and amazing service. I haven’t been there in 30 years and it’s still top notch. Also a great value considering between 5 of us with appetizers and entrees the bill came out to about $67 per person including tip (and we aren’t cheap tippers).

    We had a good time. WAs there about 30 years ago and was still good. However, I saw that my charge account was charged for the dinner but not the tip. Very upset since I know I put it on the check. Now I will have to call the restaurant to see what happened.

    This place is incredible. Interior and exterior were as clean and neat as you would expect for a German restaurant. It all comes down to the food. There 4 of us that went to eat and every dish was perfect. We ended up picking from each other’s plates. The amount of food on the plate was remarkable and the German pretzel appetizer, which would seem pretty mundane, was obviously home made and the dips were all excellent. The big 3, food, service and atmosphere…….all 5 star. We will be back.

    Food was excellent and service was good. However, we were disappointed after having made a reservation that we were seated in the room by the bar. When we asked to switch in the main dining area we were told that the area was reserved. Nice restaurant!

    Joanne was great, seated us at a nice table in the bar, food was all we said it would be. My son and is girlfriend had never been, but had wanted to try it. Drink specials were good, food was outstanding and overall, a very good time. One slight problem, they were out of German beers due to supply chain issues. If you want good food at a reasonable price Jolly Onion is the place.

    Overall a great dining experience. The service was a bit slow, but in fairness, there was a party going on at the same time. The quality of the food was unaffected however. The appetizers arrived hot. My wife had the Bacon-wrapped Scallops. She raved about how good they were. I had the Bitterballen and they were equally delicious. The filling was a tasty beef mixture with just a hint of nutmeg?? maybe?? The accompanying Dijon mustard was creamy and tangy and an excellent compliment to the dish. The main courses came out of the kitchen hot too. (I know I shouldn't have to explain this, but other reviews I read stated the opposite. We had no problems like the others.) Her chicken sandwich came with a spicy aioli, which was too spicy for her taste, but I tried in on a few of her fries and enjoyed it. My Jaegar schnitzel was seasoned and fried to a crispy golden brown. The mushroom gravy added a savoriness without drowning out the flavor of the meat. The potatoes also really well prepared. They were crunchy on one side and chewy on the other with just the right amount of salt, pepper and parsley. The red cabbage was probably some of the best I've ever eaten. The balance of sour and sweet was just right and it almost melted in your mouth, with just the right amount of crunch. As I stated earlier, the service was a bit slow, but it's understandable. There was a party and we saw a sign advertising for help. We left feeling we were well treated, that our food came out of the kitchen properly prepared, delicious and we received plenty of value for what we spent. I also wanted to say "Thanks" to Andrea for making our first visit to "Jolly Onion" a memorable one.

    We went for Easter brunch not a good experience looked better online - buffet trays to high and not labeled no idea what was in them - no tongs to pick food up with - dessert, rolls etc. covid is still a problem so I was surprised - found hair IN my chocolate chip cookie - a 20% gratuity was automatically added to my check. We were two people so that is ridiculous. I understand big parties that is usually the norm and it is 15% but we were 2 Will NOT be back

    This dining experience was disappointing. Many of the food items we received we could tell we’re sitting under the heat lamps for a period of time because they were dry and cold. The potatoes were unevenly cooked. Our waitress forgot about us twice during the course of the evening. The experience was sub-par to say the least which was a shame because we had previously had a lovely experience dining here pre-Covid. Not sure if we’ll ever be back.

    We went for the Valentine dinner for two. First of all the place was a refrigerator. They put the heat up to 90 and it never got warm. We saw a fireplace and they said it was broken. We froze the whole time. Our soup came out hot but was cold almost immediately. The sale next. Very petite salad to share. Unimpressed. It said mixed greens which we only had some kind of lettuce I’m not sure what it was. Very tiny. The steak and lobster Tail were to share? It was a pretty big steak that was bland and an average lobster tail. Lots of multi colored tiny potatoes and tri colored carrots. A little too hard. Needed a few more minutes. Dessert was 3 choices and the Strawberry cheeecake had 1 strawberry slices in half and a scant of some sauce. Tasted old. Chocolate Torte was ice cold and almost too cold. And kinda fell apart. Seemed old too. Overall experience not too good. We went last year for Mothers Day and we like it a lot. There was lots of help just standing around. I hope they can fix things as we may not go back.

    My husband and I had a wonderful experience at The Jolly Onion. Our server was pleasant and attentive. We enjoyed the veiner schnitzel as it was very tender and the ham and cheese were an added bonus. We did, however, miss the beets that used to be placed on the table with the bread.

    We were only in the area for 2 nights, visiting family, and they chose this restaurant. When we arrived the host asked if we wanted trivia. I said yes. The music was very loud. At first we were put off by the volume, but ended up having a really good time. Great wine list. We all had the prime rib special and it was fabulous!

    They were understaffed and that was fine and understood, but literally everything we ordered: veal schnitzel, potato pancakes, Mac and cheese, chicken salad, black dirt burger; were all very bland and not flavorful at all, which is sad because my family of 7 enjoys coming to the Jolly Onion for dinner but the only food that was consistent from previous visits were the Bavarian pretzel and the buffalo wings. It will be sometime before we come back unfortunately.

    I will say to try the Jolly Onion, however, know what to expect. Our server, Elizabeth, was great. In fact, without her, this would have been a very disappointing experience. The food was mediocre. The Salmon was literally a small 3-ounce quarter-inch-thin piece of fish and way overcooked, and the Chicken Madeira was served with a watery mushroom brown sauce tasting like from a can. Our app, potato pancakes, were missing any fluffiness or flavor, paper-thin, way overcooked, and no taste of potato. It was clear to me that the culinary chef they re-opened with, was no longer there, and I mentioned this upon receiving our meals. You may want to stick with the basics when dining here. I did try their whiskey special of the day, and this was satisfactory.

    French onion soup and red cabbage side were both excellent. Service was a little slow but that may be due to being short-staffed. Loved to see an energetic crowd of faithful customers fill the restaurant with chatter like the days before the pandemic.
