I travel to Huntsville regularly for business. On my last trip I ate here twice and I will be going back. The first night I was surprised by their excellent selection of German wine and beer. They brought soft, warm rye bread to the table....More

If you want giant mugs of beer, schnitzel, sausages, sauerkraut, and any other German food you can think of, this is the place to go. I've never been disappointed here, and consider it a required visit during any trip to Huntsville. The decor isn't new,...More

The other reviewers that call this food authentic aren’t kidding. We’ve traveled all over Germany and this food is the real deal. Wiener schnitzel was nice- go for the potato salad over fried potatoes. Jaeger schnitzel was amazing! Sauerkraut was a little too salty, but...More

They do German cuisine so well I would give them a 5 if I were a big fan of German cuisine. I often find it kind of heavy, and so I only go there about once a year.

I have been coming here for occasional lunch over many years. Decor and food are authentic. Setting is a bit dark and old fashioned. Schnitzel portions are large.

Their desserts are on display when you first walk in the restaurant. When you want a dessert, you get up from the table, look, and choose.

I do not have a desert menu but, just imagine any delicious cake you may want and they have it, plus baklava.
