Visited here on a warm Sunday evening and ate outside. Husband had Wiener Snitzel, I had the pork knuckle with dumplings and sauerkraut. The portions were large and the food honest. The beer was good and excellent value.

I had a pork knuckle and it was very tasteful, my friends got a special housemade sausage that was even better. Reasonably good cost benefit option.
