    on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays from 7-9pm, Silvia plays German tunes on the accordion for guests. She's absolutely adorable and so fun.

    The delicious and massive Fried Pig Knuckle on top of sauerkraut and potatoes is a must order item but it's only available during Oktoberfest.

    In addition to the restaurant in back, there is a pretty substantial German grocery portion in the front, complete with toiletries, deli items, and ice cream.

    As an Exchange Student from German I can fully approve the quality of this restaurant 😉 The Schnitzel, Potato Pancakes, Roulade and Bratwurst are very good and like at home!

    Do *not* get the "vegetable patty platter"! The vegetable patty is a regular old commercial veggie burger, heated up and served plain with no sauce or anything (and not even one of the better brands).

    Truly horrible. Is this what you people think German food is supposed to taste like??

    Food is great, accordion player gets old and loud after a while. Could do without her for a more pleasant meal.

    Great service! I love being called "dear" by a lady I don't know. I recommend the Austrian potato salad, potato pancakes, red cabbage, kaese spaetzli and venison sausage.

    The bar and restaurant is past the grocery in the front. Have a few liters and buy some delicious mustard or other German treat on the way out.

    Hoagies are an Italian-American invention, but the 'German Cold Cut Hoagie' here is worth a try. This version piles German luncheon meat and Swiss cheese high on a soft roll.

    They play the 1812 Overture and have a woman that yodels while playing an accordion. Seriously, what other reason do you need to eat here?

    Beer? That's nice. Beer is everywhere in the city. But schnitzel, goulash, and spaetzli? Its the kaiser's own food, the Holy Roman Empire right here in downtown D.C.
