Unless you are a lumberjack with a big appetite you might want to share an order of schnitzel. It's delicious but I could easily have shared the meal with another. And still been full.

We found the oven roasted potatoes in the buffet to be far too salty. Overall, it was o.k. I would recommend ordering from the menu instead. Schnitzel is always excellent.

This is a quaint restaurant. The music is easy listening and the service is great the food offerings for seniors on Mon Tues and Wed evenings is just the right amount.

It was the first time for my parents and my self with my boyfriend. We were greeted immediately and had amazing service. The buffet was so good. Lots of German food with different variety. We will for sure be back.

If you feel like comfort food in an environment that celebrates all seasons all the time and is punctuated with Bavarian themed posters and memorabilia in every nook and cranny, you have found the right place. The schnitzels are accompanied by a host of starchy accompaniments from spaetzle to perogies. Interestingly even the vegetables have hollandaise sauce on them in... More

The decor is what sets the mood for the food. There are trinkets adorning every nook and cranny and it is very interesting. We both had the buffet and it was very tasty. I'd recommend to try as an alternative the same old chain restaurants that are everywhere!

This small corner restaurant on the fringe of Brandon's downtown is located in a historic house and has been going for over 20 years. Filled top to bottom in Bavarian kitsch it is personable and friendly. The menu is not extensive, but the schnitzel is great, the salad fresh and the potatoes to die for. Although we enjoyed a freshly-cooked... More
