Great food, great ambiance. Very busy on a Saturday night but worth the wait. Service was prompt and friendly

We have been going to the Black Forest since we were married and that's 40 years. And in that time little has changed at this Hamilton landmark. The food is as good as always and we've always had friendly service. Both my wife and I...More

Lunch for 7 was served speedily. Wish I had tried schnitzel instead of Rouladen, which was a bit chewy. None had room for dessert!

That's right! Forget everything else. Try the schnitzel. It is to die for. And the staff are friendly and helpful. A great place to eat.

Six of us went to dinner on March 27 ... each of us ordered something different. Food was good and no one left hungry. A few had food to take home since the portions were so large.

Great food. Service is a bit slow due to it being packed all the time. The only part I don't like is how chaotic the wait is before your seating. If your lucky enough to get a table while waiting it's ok but I mostly...More

Food is fresh and homemade. Good quality but not terribly interesting. Lovely rye bread served with dinner. Portions are generous.

Once again we visited this place to treat ourself with delicious schnitzels and every time we come, experience gets better. We strongly suggest this place for its outstanding food dishes, very welcoming service and nice cosy setting that will remind you of Germany or Austria...More

Went to this restaurant before going to see a concert and it was good. This is one of my favorited however they do not have many items that are not fried and I can no longer have fried foods due to a medical problem.

My husband and I were in town over the weekend and we had a wonderful meal at this family run restaurant. I choose the rouladen on spatzle and he had the gulash. Big portions, tasty flavor and the restaurant has a "home" atmosphere. We live...More

They’re is a small step on both entrance and exit but I would consider this easily managed. The washroom is accessible but I can’t say for sure about the toilet with bar. Absolutely call them, they’re very accommodating.

We went with a large group-most had a meat based order but some did have non meat dish. The salads were great and very well portioned. Everyone did rave about the schnitzel and spetzel.
