Kind of an out of the way location where there aren't many choices, but four of us enjoyed a nice dinner with good service, German and seafood fare.

Apparently business has picked up at Karlings and a competitor noticed the influx of patrons. When you can read through comments like those written, you learn the motive and rhyme and reason for the negativity of the writer.

The restaurant does not serve hard liquor. They do, however, serve Warsteiner draft beer and you have a choice of lager or dark. The beer is not cheap but goes vert well with the meal.
