This is my second trip to the restaurant. The owners are wonderful people and they take time to sit and talk. The antiques shop is certainly unexpected in visiting the restaurant, but the tour of the place on your own passes some time while the...More

Over the weekend my husband and I visited this fantastic German restaurant in the Poconos. It's part antique shop, part BBQ shack, but also has a sit-down restaurant inside with a wider variety of foods, mostly focusing on traditional German cuisine. Everything is homemade and the German hostess/owner (who also cooked some of the food) was very accommodating.
