Good food mostly German but also Greek items, Italian pastas and Hungarian Goulash. Schnitzel tender, Goulash tasty, Laiberkase also. Sides of Spatzle, red cabbage, potato pancakes, sauerkraut well prepared. Expected more of a happy German atmosphere but a lederhosen clad accordion player and American tunes turned us off. Didn't risk trying the Pastas.

We had à nice dinner at Sandra's tonight, we found the service very nice friendly and fast. Food tasted well we missed the capers and the anchovies on the winer snitchel, but with some sauerkraut compensated. Nice surroundings and music in the Resturant produced a German atmosphere.

Very good food and the atmosphere feels like you are actually in Germany. Owner is on site and doing the cooking. Never disappointed.

Six of us had dinner last weekend and we were quite satisfied with the food. The schnitzel was very good. There was live accordion music which really set the stage for the German cuisine. The waitress was a little muddled and often forgot to bring things. She also told us there was no more Black Forest cake but a few... More

You will spend your hard earn money on frozen pre packed food. This place is only good for drinks that's it. If you are expecting to have a nice dinner do not go there

I reviewed Sandra's last in 2013 and it is still wonderful. Visited last with another couple and we all had a great meal and service, plus Sandra has added music--a singer on accordion. I had the Schwein Haux (pork hock) and others had the Bratwurst; Zürcher Geschnetzeltes (Tender beef tips cooked in our delicious homemade onion-mushroom crème sauce); Wiener Schnitzel;... More

Whenever people come to visit us, we take them to our favorite new restaurant. The food is superb, the service was attentive, the beer was awesome and we were lucky enough to have live music the Saturday night that we came in. My guests wanted to come back again.
