    I was happy with selection of beers. Food was very good. They did not have rabbit. Probably not offered because few Americans eat rabbits

    Schweinhax ftw. Best goulash and beef stroganoff also. Rare treat, if it's on the specials menu, get the bison steak, you won't regret it.

    If this is your first time here, your party can choose one different plate per person and ask the waiter to serve family style, then everybody will have the chance to try a little bit of everything.

    Everytime the meat's flavorful & tender! Love the jaegerschnitzel, the Spaetzle, & potato salad. Ask for a Spezi! (Half Cola half fanta) When it's busy, service gets slow.

    After 1 hour and 29 minutes we just got our dinner. We were on our feet to walk out when it came. Our waiter actually said "If you want good service, come when it's not Oktoberfest." FTW!

    Vegetarians beware! The menu changes during festivals (dates on website) and gets almost 100% meaty. Learn to love Vorspeisen! Oh, and they run out of those fast! :-/

    Love the sausage plate appetizer and the jaegarschnitzel. Delicious! Went there for Springfest, and my only problem was the children there late at night. The band couldn't play the fun songs.
