    Visited the Student Prince for a birthday dinner. For years, I have heard about this Springfield institution. From entry to exit, we were treated to first class service and outstanding food! We will certainly be back!

    Not a lot for vegans- just sides really- but my companions loved their meals. The decor is very interesting, and the staff is phenomenal! Interesting drinks as well as a good selection of beer (naturally) and wine. Highly recommend.

    Not in a great neighborhood as we had people walk up to us and follow us to our car. I would only go back in a group as there is no security around the building. Food was ok not great and service could have been better pretty slow for the time of day we were their.

    If you’ve never been here before, you will come back! The Springfield icon with no equal, even in bigger cities like Boston and New York. Added bonus if you like good beer and have some German in your virtual blood. Superb and friendly service.

    Our waiter Jeff was phenomenal. I love the food here. It feels like you’re stepping into an old German restaurant. I highly recommend getting the Kaiser. schnitzel. And make sure you order the spatzel As well instead of the home fries.
