We were lucky enough to arrive in time for Happy Hour and I got 2for1 wine. Extremely disappointed in the Potato pancake. We should have sent it back. The sausage platter, hot German potato salad and spatzzle was delicious!! We were hoping for Apple Strudel...More

We've visited multiple times and had great food and service. This last visit was not as great. So, it depends who the cook is at the time. You can get well prepared schnitzel or over cooked, too thick and so salty you can't eat.

In the kindest words possible this place is well past it's prime. I was told it opened in 1999 but given the dust thickness, dirt of like rings on a tree, suggest far longer. The staff is not all that interested in being there. The...More

Amazing Food yet sub-par service made this only a 4 for me. The food was off the charts amazing, just wish I had the same rave review for the service

Had the sausage sampler and the Jagerschnitel. Both were very good. Had an oompah band, if you like that sort of thing. I do not, but it did not bother me. Probably will never be back in Nashville, but if I am, I will be...More
