Good eats and location...service so-so! All the traditional German fare, schnitzels, wurst, brook trout, red cabbage, spaëtzle and knödel...try the Schweinehäxe (pork knuckle), fabulous and huge. Desserts and fine wine abound also. Just tolerate the service, which will try to rush you...hold your ground.
