This is our "go to" restaurant when friends and family come in from out of town. The schnitzel is tender inside and crispy outside. The trout special was prepared perfectly. The dessert was sumptuous. Thank you, Fritz and staff!

The food is nothing but great. Love the wiener-schnitzel and spaetzle. The pate & mussels are a must have. Very nice wine list. The place is very small be prepared to be seated close to others. Good to call ahead.

Stopped in after a five hour drive, and was very pleased with the restaurant. Very cute, small, and a very definite European flair. Focus on French and German food, it was nicely prepared and presented, and all around quite good.
