Hungry, the menu read very well. We decided on the appetizer sampler where you pay 9 Euros per person as there was a good variety of chicken, ribs, potatoes, etc. What we did not expect was how HUGE this would be-upon arrival we immediately took the baked potatoes and packed them away for later. We told the kids to eat... More

We just visited for a quick bite. The first waitress was very accommodating and continued to do so throughout. However, the lady lady that took our drink order was rude, aggressive and offensive when I placed my drink order in broken german. I was just trying to be polite and speak some German. However, she was aggressive and condescending! Not... More

I spent an evening there and had an excellent burger and amazing salad. The food is truly decent and tasty. Location is great and service was nice as well. Definitely a good choice.

We arrived on Thursday evening at 7.30, it was busy but we had no trouble getting a table. We were given a grubby menu and our order was taken. About ten minutes later our drinks arrived. At 8pm we ordered more drinks which took until 8.20 to arrive. At 8.30 we asked where our food was to be told they... More

You rarely get the pleasure of seeing hygiene standards as low as this in Germany so overall i'm amazed that this place hasn't shut down yet. Right off the bat as I sat down I could already see the dishes weren't really clean as I looked at one of the guests orders, and to make things worse if you looked... More

I popped in her with my son on a Saturday afternoon. There were a few tables but they were not busy at all!! I walked in and grabbed a table. We sat for 10 mins before I decided to make sure it was okay to sit anywhere since no one even made eye contact. I had 3 ppl walk right... More

Shared a T-Bone steak with my wife, delicious is all I can say! Very good lively atmosphere with clientele mostly in the 30's & 40's. Good service. Average value.

Stopped in for beers and maybe a snack during our walking tour of Nuremberg. We figured we would see Nuremberg's take on California styling. It was not close to what we would have thought it should look like. We didn't get a chance to sample the food because it took so long for our beers to arrive we did not... More

We were looking for a place to eat for breakfast then we found this. I loved their breakfast burritos!! Reminds me of home.

This place is an excellent café and grill serving very good American/intl dishes. The guests are mostly young people and the romm buzzes with laughter and activity from guests and staff. The staff speaks good Englisg and they re helpful in guiding you through the menu card. It is a place where you can spend hours or have a party... More
