We went late on a Sunday night and this place was still hopping. We enjoyed the homemade taste of the dinners and the side dishes. We enjoyed the sauerbraten, red cabbage, German potato salad and wiener schnitzel. Good, friendly service.

Stopped for dinner and had a stein of beer, 2 brats and a beet salad! It was all delicious and the decor has German writing on the walls and a very courteous and prompt wait staff!

Very good food, nothing exceptional, but everything overshadowed by the drink menu. Service was very friendly and helpful. Will return on our next trip to Ann Arbor.
