The German food was good especially the red cabbage. Service was great. The place is small and can get noisy

We had lunch here on a Weekday in early March.

We wanted to eat at a unique / genuine German restaurant while we were walking around on main street as we had never been to a German restaurant anywhere. We had asked a local shop employee for the best German restaurants on the main street, and she had recommended this one and one other - the other restaurant was closed for the day, so we ate at this one.

As soon as you enter, you are told payment options which don't include all credit cards. I can't understand any business not accepting any / all forms of major plastic these days.

The interior is somewhat small - maybe less than 15 tables. Somewhat oddly decorated - did not have an old world feel.

Our server tried to be nice, and we enjoyed her accent. However, she appeared to be new or not very knowledgeable. When asked questions she had to look at the menu first.. We overheard here being confused about drinks with another table.

The basket of bread placed on table looked like packaged rye bread from any grocery store chain - thin, not tasty, etc. Paper napkins, cheap plastic plates, etc... did nothing to give us a German experience.

Our lunch entrees were potato soup and Schnitzel. The soup was bland tasting. The Schnitzel was dry and crunchy - not very tasty. Came with a small side of hot potato salad and slaw - they were just OK.

Disappointed with this restaurant. Cannot recommend.

My friends and I came to eat authentic german food. I lived in Germany for 10 years and my friends mom is German. We were greeted at the door, "We don't take Visa or Mastercard' I was expecting "Hello" The menu does not have pommes frites which is a german stable. The potato salad was more like mashed potatoes. They only had 2 beers on the menu but only had one in stock. The table who was seated 15 minutes after us got their food before us--same waitress, same number of customers --3 Never did see a smile on any of the waitresses or a thank you. Will not be going back anytime soon!!!

Food was AWESOME. The server we had was not very good. We sat at our table for roughly 15 minutes before she took our order. This restaurant only takes cash, check, and American Express. For three people it cost $71 but it was still worth it.

They have some wonderful food. Prices are reasonable and staff is friendly. Nothing fancy. Friends had beans and cornbread. It was delicious. Potato soup was yummy.
