Small, inviting restaurant serving good food. All food cooked/prepared there. NOT a chain restaurant setting. If crowded, can order the food to be eaten in Paul's Pub next door.

I had house specialty-- cordon bleh which unfortunately was over cooked. However I opted out of warm potato salad for sauerkraut which was amazing as was their cole slaw. Yummy fresh greens and cranberry sauce were added as a garnish. I was quite full.

Very good food and friendly staff to help guide you to the perfect German dinner. It is a little small so plan to make reservations or get there early.

Don't know about wi-fi, but you definitely shouldn't be there for a few hours. It's small & there is often a waiting line.
