    Name one other place, one other place on the whole of planet Earth, where a gnome mural, matjes herring, and a Richard Avedon photo marked with bullet holes exist under the same roof. Read more

    A must when I am in town. Love their Koenigsberger Klopse which are hard to find outside of Germany. The homemade soups are to die for & often creative combinations. Tonight's potato curry is amazing

    Voted top 10 Romantic Restaurants! As shadows play fetchingly on your darling's face, try a beer sampler (a neat array of tiny beer shots), or share a plate of tangy paprika schnitzel.

    Delicious food, the pitchers of beer are a great value, and the patio is beautiful! Worth the trip just for that atmosphere.

    i've not eaten the food, but they have Franziskaner on tap, which is enough to get me and my beer loving buddies in the door after Jasmine or one of the other jammin restaurants at this intersection

    The Black Forest Inn Haus Platte was amazing. Great beer and fantastic service. I will come back here again and again.

    If you like asparagus, you have to check out Spargelfest (May 20th-29th). Asparagus martinis, asparagus wrapped in ham and puff pastry, and even asparagus-rhubarb strudel. Read more

    This is hidden somewhere outside. If found call Maxamilan for a free dinner and conversation in German. The number to reach Max is +1 (952) 451-6459. Enjoy the hunt!

    The Wienerschnitzel is superb. If you're not sure on what you'd like to eat, I recommend it.

    Spaetzel and cheese is a great option for the kids. Or the Deutchburger casserole!

    Geschnitzeltes is phenomenal, and Red Cabbage is not optional. It is required.

    We got a table, asked for the fixed price menu we heard about and were completely ignored by our server. After 10 minutes passed (no water, nothing), we left. At least 4 staff members were there...
