The place was great. It's set up like a beer cellar. Food was awesome and plentiful. I recommend the smoked pork chops. As previous poster said, dinners come with soup, salad and dessert. Well worth visiting!

We loved this restaurant. Our party had at least five different entrees and all were delicious. They even had small plates for those not wanting a large meal. Service was efficient and friendly. We felt this was an experience. Loved it.

There is, simply put, no other place like this in Santa Clara Valley. Just walking in relaxes a person as they feel like they are being welcomed into someones home. Very comfortable and very old world feeling about it. An extensive menu of traditional German...More
