We thoroughly enjoyed our visit here. Outside of Germany, this is the best German food I have had in years. The service was great, the servings plentiful and the restaurant brought back great memories of past visits to German Gasthauses. We will definitely return again.

Happened on place walking from Candlewood Suites. Had lunch day before cruise. Enjoyed German draft beer with very nice lunch. Service good, reasonable charge. Apparently the chef owns it and it has been there for many years.

Walking distance from our hotel (H. Inn Express), pre cruise, Good menu of traditional German old style food and music. Good menu selection and service. A good choice for my wife's German heriatage in decor, food and song to be revisited

Check with the restaurant but they had a flier out for Christmas dinners after I believe 3PM. They are doing Christmas goose among other things. A great place.
