It was a nice mix of french and German. Come with an appetite, you get ALOT of food. They had a very tasty ginger ale. The pork schnitzel was so good and crisp and the spaetzle was so tasty. The desert is definitely worth it....More

Don't know but give them a call. It is a small place and if they do have, I'm sure it will be minimal. They won't be open again until Tuesday evening, 815.777.2004
