We have eaten here many many times. We have never been disappointed. I tried something different this time. I got the catfish dinner and it was amazing. I usually get the Black Forest Schnitzel and have always loved it but was wanting fish this visit....More

Dreamland Palace looks like it came straight from Germany. Authentic German food, authentic décor and wonderful desserts.

The service was extremely terrible. The dining experience was an hour and 45 minutes. It took 20 minutes to get drinks and another 40 to get a refill. The food had no quality whatsoever. No salad or soup was on their soup and salad bar....More

I'd heard about this place for some time and finally visited. Full of bad decorating statues and memorabilia. All of that was fun. But service was horrible and food was nonexistent. I left after 90 minutes, have never done that before.

Bought $60 groupon deals. Read reviews saying service was dicey, but the food was great. Made 6:40pm reservations. Arrived in time and waited 20 mn to be seated. That's not a big deal. We ordered our food, and the group waiting behind us in line...More

Good selection of classic German food. Neat decor seems like your in Bavaria. Not in town it's west in the country 4 or 5 miles out in the corn fields. Cool stone house across the street
