Nice place for German food! Menu is limited to a few choices; nice ambience, good service, family oriented!

The town and the food is like Bavaria. This is an experience that you should not miss. Be prepared and come hungry because there is a abundance of things to try and of course, places to shop.

Nice waitstaff and super quick service. The food is not authentic Bavarian by any means. A tourist experience but not good food.More

If you buy a chicken dinner it is expensive but you get a lot of food. We could not eat a third of what was brought out but it was very good but expensive for a chicken dinner.

Yes, we do! We have a gluten free menu and a vegetarian menu available. You can view them online ahead of time if you like. Then when you arrive, just request the menu from the hostess when you are seated. Thank you!
