    Hands down the most authentic German restaurant. Ranks #1 in all my favorite German across the U.S. Don't forget the butcher shop around the corner called Magnolia market. yum.

    Love this place. Try the schnitzel Hollander art, the white asparagus really makes it great. There's live music if you go on the weekend, but try to get a reservation, place fills up fast!

    They have little accordians for the kiddos, and make a mean Shirley Temple. Ease kids into German cuisine by asking for Leiberkase (mixed meats loaf, fried, delicious!) with potato pancakes... prima!

    Upset that one man can't have a boot! Besides that food was filling and the beers were delicious. Pricing was high. Maybe make it a special occasion night.

    As a German this is as close as it gets to real authentic German food. Some items could be added to the menu, such as Schweinebraten, and Rehbraten, wildschweinbraten, leberknödel

    If you leave hungry it is your own fault. Best German food around. Have not experienced anything from the menu that I did not like. Dine on an entertainment night for a real gasthaus experience.

    Watch beerfest movie and then stop by for a "DAS BOOOTTttt!" The food here is great. Stop by the market next door afterward for the chocolate cake balls.

    Fiery owner who yelled at our Dachshund meet-up group even though we made reservations. Aside from that, try the Schnitzel w/ fried egg, anchovies and capers it was awesome!

    Anyone who thinks this is authentic or tasty has never had real or truly good German food. The only "good" thing here is the beer & the band.
