Wow! This is a popular place for many reasons. Food is excellent and service is great. Portions are gigantic. This place gets very busy so be prepared. Definitely worth a wait. Free easy parking. Karaoke and outdoor dining area. Festive ambiance.

Just tried this as an alternative to all the great seafood restaurants. Not bad, but could be much better. They did not serve Weiner schnitzel (veal), only pork. Potato pancakes were not on the menu and only found out later that they were available but...More

Really tasty German food! Every one of their schnitzel dishes is great - and the portions are huge, so come hungry. The wait staff is pleasant and the service is good. The place is small, but we've never had to wait more than a couple...More
