Had a lovely meal in this quaint Bavarian restaurant. There was a promotion for a sharing platter which had a variety of sausages, Pork bell, Pork knuckle, pork chop and some sides. I shared this with my husband and it beat both of use. Everything was well cooked and very tasty. Great value. Some excellent beers available too.

We loved this place. The schnitzel was so good. I had the pork and my husband had the beef. Both were great. The service was excellent also. Everyone was so nice. Loved the free pretzels!! We will definitely be back.

Great beer and love those over-sized pretzels. Potato soup is also good. However, what I really had the yen for was wiener schnitzel. For some reason, it turned out dry and somehow just not to my liking. I think the raw materials were there but it was prepared indifferently and just didn't hit the spot (although by no means a...

I came with a serious sausage craving, in particular a serious hankering for a big juicy currywürst. John was amazing. He helped me order the tastiest food I've had in a very long time, very attentive and really wanted to make sure we had a first class dining experience... I will be coming back ASAP. Great atmosphere, I love the... More

They have tried to create a bier keller setting and it does work. I'm not sure how long it's been open in this form but the wood looks very new and stark. Good selection of hops, grape and schnapps. Tasty bar snacks! The preztles come a wood 'tree'.

Unfortunately the service and the portions are getting worse from year to year. Der Keller was perfectly managed till around 2010 but in recent years it goes downwards. We had out last visit last night until we see massive improvements. When you order a Schnitzel you can count the number of fries on the plate. raspberries were delivered when the... More
