Had the platter selection with the kransky, sausages, pork knuckle, sauerkraut and potato salad. Pork knuckle was over cooked but the rest of the food was delicious, especially loved the potato salad.

Lovely spacious venue & friendly staff. Good music. Decent sized menu with something for everyone. A huge feed for a very reasonable price. I had roast pork & could not eat it all. Hubby had 3 different sausages.

The food choice is good, from light to full meals. The food itself was also very tasty. Lunch was great, but at dinner time they seemed to be understaffed and service was a little slow. However this did not detract from a good dining experience.
