We were visiting the historical Zoar Village and decided to keep with the theme and dine at a historical tavern. A good choice. We enjoyed the Pork Schnitzel and Tavern Sausage Plate, both excellent and served piping hot. A nice atmosphere and excellent service. Enjoy.

To be honest, I accidentally stumbled upon this place thinking I was going somewhere else, but once I pulled in and entered the place, I loved the ambiance. They had a guitarist playing in the background, and the back patio area was awesome as well....More
