Actually this is less a question and more a comment to you about the staff at the Katchelofen. I know the owner and did know the staff (as of a few years ago) and the place is far from rude. I am sorry that you had a bad experience with that particular waitress, but instead of getting on a website and land blasting it, telling people to never go there, maybe you should have asked to speak to the manager.
As for them "reserving good service for native Germans" this is a complete and utter falsehood.. my husband and I are Americans, and we were treated so well that when we left Germany they actually gave me a card signed by the whole staff and a beer mug and the owner and some of the waitstaff cried with me over the fact that we wouldn't be seeing each other anymore. These people were so friendly in fact that when my sister came to visit us while we lived in Germany, we were excitedly approached by one of the waitresses at the Christmas Market and she hugged MY SISTER who she didn't even know, but said that she would love just because she was my sister. Then she insisted on taking her to meet the staff who was on duty at the restaurant, and they fed us for FREE.
And before you go saying that my German must have been really good or something, I barely speak the language ... just a few sentences, because no matter how much I understand I just can't speak it. Has it occurred to you at all, that MAYBE just MAYBE you were putting off the unfriendly vibes because you were... as you said "forced" go there because everywhere else was to full? As for the food being average, that is your opinion... and I can't say anything about that... other than I will disagree with you and I have eaten at a lot of places all over Germany and grew up with a Germany Father who was an Executive Chef.
I’ve never been let down. American that’s lived in Deutschland for 7+ years and believe me they know I’m American. At first I thought the responses were to my review.... I was like who hacked my TripAdvisor haha. Better go back and take another shot at the Lumber Jack Steak and smoked beir!!
Yes, I had a great time, they were very friendly, I asked about a taxi, to get back to my hotel and they offered to call them for me. I do speak German, but to say they treat Americans differently anywhere there is an absolute falsehood. I wish I could go there tonight!
Whoa Dude, I loved the place. Gave them a great review. Our waiter was a great guy. Relax a little, nobody takes these web reviews too seriously, especially if it sounds like a personality spat. Some people just like to hate.
