This place always impresses! For true German food there is no where else to consider. From the red cabbage, to the saurkraut, to the sausages and the other mains, it's like you traveled overseas.

This smallish restaurant is located in a strip mall on busy Main St. The interior provides a woody warm feeling to make you forget you're in the desert. The menu offerings are faithful renditions of German standards. No surprises but generous helpings and prompt attentive service. We very much enjoyed the schnitzels and sausages,and the sauerkraut which was crisp and... More

The surprise is that there are no appetizers since I don't consider rye bread an appetizer. No soup selection, salad selection as well. However, we went for the schnitzel and that was very good. This is a good pick to get your schnitzel, spatzle and potato dumplings fix.

We were debating which German restaurant to go to, both in same area of Mesa Bavarian Point or Zur Kate. We ate at Zur Kate it was great! After dinner we walked over to Bavarian Point to look at it and look at their menu. The place smelled like an ashtray! There was no one in the dinning room at... More

We've tried German restaurants all over the Phoenix area and this one is the best! It's cozy and has a great atmosphere. I love the accordion music - I can never keep from tapping my toes. The food is wonderful and reasonably priced compared to other places. There is plenty of food and I've never had room for dessert! My... More

Excellent food and service with music on Friday and Saturday. Had my favorite "schweinhaxe" the special for the first Friday of the month. Very much like what I have had in Germany and just as tasty. Hock was so big I made three meals out of it. Be prepared to wait if you go at regular eating hours as the... More

If you want to move customers quickly have good service. The kelbosa was good. But was small. The red cabbage and potato dumpling had no flavor. The Schnitzel cordon bleu had no flavor also. It was very busy. Most of the older generation were at the bar getting beer. This is probably why it is popular. Highly recommend don't go.

The food is authentic German, good portions and reasonable prices. My husband who lived in Germany loved the brats & sauerkraut, not to mention the yummy, fresh rye bread. Tasted just like my most recent visit to Germany. We'll be back for another visit soon.

Our party of 11 arrived before 4 pm on a Saturday (opening time). This place is HOPPING! There were already quite a few parties waiting for the place to open. There are several large, family style tables which is traditional in Germany, even if you aren't with the same party at the same table. Our large party ended up with... More
