This bar restaurant has some great beers, and traditional German food. Service was good, and the food was excellent. If having a beer, I recommend you take one on draft.

The food was good, not great. The server was very friendly and helpful, but not attentive. The hostess was a bit confrontational. As for the atmosphere, cramped and dark. Finally, I did not see a ramp for those who have disabilities.

I had a sausage platter with a variety of different types of meats and a couple of kinds of mustard and it was all very tasty. Combine this with your favorite beverage and you've got a winner!

This is a gem in Peoria. Our favorites include the combination platter (bratwurst and Thuringer sausages), the ham shank (to die for) and the Schnitzel. While the spatzel, mashed potatoes and sauerkraut are amazing, the nachos are the best in Peoria. Once you try them,...More
