    Don't go here for the food - it is as far from German food as Your local Chinese take-out is original Chinese cuisine. Tried the jäger schnitzel and the sauerbraten - both mediocre.

    Love the fried chicken blt. The warm chipotle turkey sandwich is amazing too. For beer get the speak easy baby daddy session IPA or the Jake's house Lager.

    A legendary Boston restaurant which badly needs a reboot. Standard American fare with some German dishes is pretty good. The sing alongs are fun too.

    Looks like time stopped here. Definitely my favorite German place in Boston. One small thing: I suppose the level of service could be a little bit better. The food is really delicious though.
