The hamburger soup and the cabbage rolls are wonderful! This place is beautiful, quaint, and a throwback to a better time of local shops with home cooking. Only this home cooking is authentic german cuisine. Only open for lunch on weekdays I believe. Don't miss this experience.

Wanted something better for lunch for Grandma and the boss, and I remembered the Cabbage Roll that has been at 27th and Lafayette for years. GREAT Choice! The owners welcomed us, held the door and set us up a table convenient to Grandma in a wheel chair, attention you don't find much anymore. Now remember, This is German food, and... More

We had a very pleasant experience at this quaint little German restaurant. The owner, Mr. Halamar, was extraordinarily pleasant, gracious, and generous. He went to great lengths to make sure we had a pleasant experience. The restaurant has two small dining rooms along with two clean bathrooms. The atmosphere around Christmas time is especially festive as the rooms are decorated... More

Ate there many times, with a group or friends. Good choice of German and Amercan food. Lots and lots of desserts. All buffet style.

We visit The Cabbage Roll as often as we are able. The food always exceeds expectations no matter if having the lunch specials, ordering from the menu, or participating in the Friday night buffet. Andy and Larry, the partner owners are two of the friendliest people you will ever meet and they make your dining experience special. Don't miss out... More

Stopped at the Cabbage Roll because I love German food and this did not disappoint. Andy and the team prepared some authentic food quickly and with great flavor. I thought I was home again with Granma. Stop for lunch or any Friday night for the buffet.

Just heard about this place, so went to investagate. Place not fancy, but lots of German decor, knick knacks, etc. We had a sampler plate, very good. We would love to go back for their Friday nite German buffet. Y need a reservation for the buffet. They may need to improve upon their exhaust system.

We decided to stop here after reading the reviews on Travel Advisor. Food was very good. My husband had the hunter schnitzel and declared it was some of the best he has ever had. I had the sausage sampler. The hot german potato salad and red cabbage were excellent. Plan to go back for one of their Friday night buffets!... More

Went for lunch as we were in the area. Took 2 picky preteens, and we all cleaned our plates. Amazing food. The staff was great. Wish we were going to be in the area for their buffet. Whatever you get save room for their homemade pies. Amazing just doesn't cover them.

I absolutely love this place! This place has the greatest German theme you can find. The walls are covered in photos of German castles and lots of memorabilia from Germany. Best of all, they have delicious food. Their holiday bars sell out so fast. If you want a seat at a holiday event, you'd better call ahead. The staff is... More
