Small, intimate. Had one great experience, and one average experience the next year. Gets crowded fast during festival times, soreservations are wise.

I really enjoyed the jaegerschnitzel with spaetzle and saurkraut, while the wife loved the beef bourguignon. Both were rich and tasty, and the service was great.

The only problem is that there are so many great things on the menu it's hard to choose. My casolatte was very good as was the sauerbraten; very good service. Highly recommend giving it a try if you like German or French food.

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
