Jager schnitzel is absolutely "to die for"!! Red cabbage is the best. Creme brulee was fantastic! The owner and real boss is who makes it all happen! We LOVE this place!

They never disappoint. Beautifully decorated, 5 star service, food and drinks. In my humble opinion the best authentic German food found in the upstate.

We don't know about special offerings but they may be able to do special requests if it doesn't affect the quality or taste of the food. Most restaurants can work with you for special requests.
