Waited 45 minutes before server asked what I wanted to drink. After 15 minutes and a total of one hour asked if I was ready to order. That's an hour waiting before they took my order. Server told me they had no idea when they would deliver my meal. Could be hours. I told them I wanted to leave and... More

Restaurant has been at same location for at least 40 years and has always been considered authentic German. After not visiting in a few years, went for dinner last week--very disappointing--Although service excelled, meal was mediocre, not worth the trip

We dined here last minute on a Saturday night, The place was busy and lots of German accents serving the room. I new this was going to be good traditional German cooking when the server in her traditional German dress said I could not make any substitutions from the menu! How wonderful German I thought. Great dining experience and good... More

Maybe my expectations were too high. In any case this was all very average and bland. The herring appetizer was minced into little pieces, not small filets. The potato pancake appetizer was reheated tasting and fatty, not fresh and hot. Much of the food tastes pre-prepared, and kind of old. The wienerschnitzle was not old but was greasy and flavorless.... More

Odd name - draped out in Bavarian colors and named after a town not in Bavaria (very loose links to Bavaria historically though). Service from reception not very friendly. Food was mediocre. Seemed like the evening I was there they were struggling with servers. Couldn't offer me a table but asked me to sit at the bar. Don't know how... More

Very friendly restaurant even though we had just arrived in town and had no reservations. The wait staff happily explained the menu and checked back frequently. The food was unique and very tasty.

This is one of those old style German restaurants with all of the German "stuff" on the walls. I had the veal schnitzel, which was good but not great. If you don't like German beer you're out of luck because they don't serve any other kind. The service was efficient, although the waitress was not overly friendly. Overall, it's a... More

This was our second visit in as many months. The schnitzel and lamb shank on our first visit in February we returned. They were delicious. This time the mouth watering Bavarian schnitzel was the choice. The deserts were equal tasty. Next time, who knows. It will be good.

If you want to listen to a good live music and skip on food, then definitely visit this restaurant. If you have travelled to Bavaria and tried food in Munich restaurants, then you realize that this South Florida place is a shameful imitation of German food. How can you screw up red cabbage and prepare disgusting potato salad - Is... More
