Food was really delicious. Came out nice and hot which is awesome. But took quite a long time to get the food. I often don't notice if the wait for food is long, but I noticed this time as it was a particularly long wait time. Even so, I would totally recommend this place.

The house is very quaint and the restaurant has some very delicious Bavarian cuisine. I recommend the combo platter which includes schnitzel, beef rouladen, bratwurst, and spätzle.

Please note that this location is busy most days of the week but they do have quite a few tables. However, if you desire a more quiet time for dinner, I recommend coming after 7:30 pm.
Enjoy :)

As usual, we were immediately seated. The service was just right, prompt but not intrusive. The highlight, of course, was the wonderful food. We all enjoyed escargot as an appetizer. It is always difficult to choose the entre, but this time we enjoyed Chicken Breast Tofino, Schnitzel Rockefeller and Roasted Garlic Potato Pancakes and Spatzle "Taegar Art". Oh, the Black Forest sauce and the red cabbage is to die for. Until next time!

We booked our table 2 weeks ago through Open Table. We arrived 20 mins earlier and not all my friends had arrived. However, we had our table within 5 minutes. Few minutes later, a waitress told us they needed our table for next customer and giving us less than 2 hours for dining. Normally this is enough for a dinner but this is Christmas friends gathering, we told her that we were not told when we made the reservation and we couldn’t gauranteed about that. For the whole dinner, everything was in rush like no water, no clean up, no follow up, no service just want to give us the bill and leave. Anyway, not worth it overall unless you don’t mind paying restaurants price but getting fast food service aka NO SERVICE.

We attended for a family member's birthday. Cheryl, our server, was fun, personable and efficient. Food was great and we were pleased that they could split one meal between our two grand children. Great wine selection as well. I was the only one who had been there before and the rest of our party was very impressed for their first time there.

Generally we enjoyed our meal, and we were pleased that our server spoke German. We were disappointed in the table we received though. We did make our reservation 2 months in advance, and I informed the restaurant that we were bringing in a young girl from Munich to celebrate her 16th birthday. We thought the decor would remind her of home. The restaurant was decorated for Christmas, but the table we were given was right by the door and in a drafty location. I asked if we could move to another one in the middle of the room, but was informed it was already reserved. That is understandable. However, There were other tables set up for 4 people that would have been fine, and I believe that the hostess could have offered us another option.

We arrived for our reservation. No one met us at the door we had to wait about 5 minutes before we rang the bell and someone came. Table wasn't ready but it was getting cleaned and set up. We waited a little bit before we were offered water. A bit longer and a lady came to take our drink order we also ordered our dinner at the same time. Loved the waitress she was funny and had Good sense of humour. Food was very good .. I had the Hawaii Chicken. Big portion to much cheese melted on too but other then that very good.

We went for Thanksgiving dinner and were very impressed. The mashed potatoes, the gravy, the stuffing, homemade cranberry sauce...excellent! All for a very reasonable price that included a delicious slice of homemade pumpkin pie. A really nice experience. We can't wait to go back and try the schintzel!
