Friendly and helpful service for my family. The food came in large portions and was delicious. It's not a big restaurant so it can get pretty full/

Good Food. Good Selection. Small size meals for those with a lighter appetite. The old time look with great home style cooking, good size portions for all types of appetites. It is a busy place most nights. Eat early or late to avoid wait times....More

Love this restaurant, love the authentic food. They don't take reservations. They have an area you can have a drink while you wait for your table. It is worth the wait in my opinion.

This restaurant has been in Hamilton for years and is always busy. Great German food at affordable prices. May not be gourmet but plentiful and satisfying.

I have been here numerous times, very good food, typical German/Bavarian fare. A bit limited in choice but if you like this kind of food you will be good. It's always hot and fresh, a little pricey but comparable with similar restaurants. A good choice...More

We went with a large group-most had a meat based order but some did have non meat dish. The salads were great and very well portioned. Everyone did rave about the schnitzel and spetzel.

You are exactly correct. Many people will try to say a place is authentic but have no clue what that actually means. Their standard is slop and anything slightly better is great.
