Lovely BYO dinner for 6! Limited seating so be sure to make reservations. Had a great meal cooked and served by the owner and his wife. Very friendly atmosphere and great food!

We had German dinners here with friends. Everything is made to order and the food is excellent along with the service. You will need to make reservations since you can't walk in. They have the tables in an antique shop store, it's a different experience...More

This is not like any other restaurant you'll ever go to. It's like you are having dinner in your friend's dining room. The owners are so nice and friendly and make you feel at home. The food is very good too! It's a BYOB. They...More

Over the weekend my husband and I visited this fantastic German restaurant in the Poconos. It's part antique shop, part BBQ shack, but also has a sit-down restaurant inside with a wider variety of foods, mostly focusing on traditional German cuisine. Everything is homemade and the German hostess/owner (who also cooked some of the food) was very accommodating.
