    If you're thinking about ordering an appetizer, go for the Kartoffelpfannkuchen (potato pancakes), they're delicious. Also, choose a table by the river, in their Biergarten.

    If you don't mind waiting for a table for several hours then don't bother getting there before 8pm. Also they say no reservations on Fridays an Saturdays yet many people had them?

    I'm all about the pretzels here! Even without the cheese dip, the pretzels are great. Not much of you don't eat pork, like me.

    Gets noisy and crazy at night, hard to navigate when you're in a small group. Get the pretzels for obvious reasons.
