    Literally so delicious! We were visiting the area from Charleston, SC. & we will definitely be stopping here every time we come in the future. The pretzel was my absolute favorite, but everything we ordered was amazing!

    We sat outside. People like to drive loud vehicles on the road. One waitress stated it's like that everyday...boys driving daddy's toys! My club sandwich was supposed to have turkey and bacon, mine had something like Canadian bacon slices and regular bacon. The weather was perfect and eating outside was the highlight.

    Reservation at 8, we were told a table we wanted was reserved so we couldn’t sit there, but no one ever came to that table. Within 30 minutes we were told it was last call (9pm on a Friday?) and we were rushed “no rush!” To pay and get out. Lukewarm fries, maybe about as German as McDonalds, don’t recommend visiting.

    Our server was very rude. Our drinks were hard to get filled. Our food order must of had been missed since it took an hour and it wasn’t correct. There was not many people in the restaurant when we got there. The prices on the menu was not what we were charged.

    Like many places, very short staffed and backed up. Even though we had reservations, we still waited awhile for our table. Still staff was apologetic and did their best.

    We reserved a table for 7 in advance, but still had to wait as they were understaffed and very busy. Some of our food was very good, some entrees were obviously old, stale. The staff were hustling trying their best, and took pretty good care of us. All and all it was a enjoyable time, except the two people that did not like their entrees.

    Food was great! Service - not so good. I understand staffing issues these days, but this was not the case. The table next to us was seated after us, ordered, ate, and received their bill before our appetizer was served. Would i go back and give them another try, yes. If i receive the same service again, not giving them a 3rd try.

    We got to sit down 30 minutes after arrival and our reservation time. Owner said that they are short staffed and cannot accommodate all reservations. The food was just ok and service was slow, since they were under staffed.

    Wasn’t sure when I first saw the name and the menu but after enjoying the wonderful meal I would recommend to anyone. It’s a hidden gem, there weren’t that many people there and the food was amazing. The service was fast, although they forgot one of our items I still would rate it 10/10

    Great service and awesome beers. Food was average (very salty and greasy); lived in Germany so hard to match. Bill was funny and entertaining.

    Terrific food, horrible service. In fairness, manager apologized and gave us a credit on bill. Apps n meal arrived at same time, no drink refills, dessert took 20+ mins. Waitress had BIG attitude. Felt bad for mgr … food was worth it, but …

    There was a family in the restaurant who had a very disruptive guest with them. It was an awkward situation all around. A few people got up and left. The servers and managers were nice people. Overall, the food was not great IMO. It was too salty and overpriced. It’s a touristy area tho.
