The food is consistent - large variety of schnitzels with a few other items if you aren't craving schnitzel. Their soup and salad are consistently satisfying. Bread basket is generous. Good selection of beer. Closed Mondays, and they do not take reservations. Main complaint is they cram you in like sardines. Servers are pleasant and service is quick.

I was very impressed with the help the staff gave our friend who was using a walker. They got a ramp out to make it easier for her to get down the one step into the main dining room and also out the exit door. I was thinking about ordering the hunter schnitzel but the waitress suggested I order the... More

Date night with hubby & we decided to checked out BFI, really to see if it had changed since new ownership earlier this year. Glad to report, it was busy (had to wait & have pre-dinner drinks in the open seating area) with the same enjoyable vibe and delicious meals.Our server was excellent - very busy, but we wanted for...

Hadn't been there for a few years and decided to go back, dinner was amazing! Our waitress Allen recommended the navy bean soup and it was "to die for"! The entree was huge - had to take at least half home - and it was delicious! To top it off our waitress had heard my daughter wish her dad happy... More

My date and I met there and I recommended a booth so that we could talk. It proved wise to do so. The service was great -- our server seemed psychic. The schnitzel was bigger than our plate. We had a leisurely lunch, two hours of food and conversation.

Visited with family for a recent meal. The food was good and plentiful. The price was decent and the service was excellent. The question from our visitors was when we would return. It was a good evening.

This was one of our very favourite restaurants ever but on our last visit mid March we experienced the cutbacks apparently instituted by the new owners. There were only 2 servers for the entire "main dining room". No idea how many served the booth area. But seriously it was so disheartening to see the change in service--not too mention how... More
