The owner is nuts. A sarcastic funny dirty old woman. The food is great. Schnitzel is delicious. Very small. A unique dining experience

Food is always good. Never rushed. Very fine service. Elle makes it fun! If dining late Elle may join in when finished in the kitchen. Beer selection is quite good!

This isn't just a meal, it is an event. Wendy is the youngest 75 year old restaurant owner and cook you will ever meet. Her stories are amazing and a bit off color but told with spirit and heart. The menu changes often but all the food is family recipes and delicious. If you are a beer fan, this place... More

I had been planning on going to Gasthaus Zur Elli for about 2 years now. I finally made it and I'm sorry that I ever waited! My extended family and I made the ~1 hr trip to Prosperity. We were celebrating my son's HS graduation and I can honestly say, he probably will never forget it! We were able to... More

me and my family had a wonderful night of fun dinner and a wonderful atmosphere of good food and Great Fellowship. The food is fabulous if one is willing to try something a little different. If you are stuck on McDonald's crap, then don't bother Miss Wendy. Always a pleasure to dine there.

I've traveled to Germany many times and love the food, the charm and the people. So I thought I'd relive a bit of those wonderful experiences. Surprise! While the place was busy and we were warned not to rush, the first of four dinners arrived about 2 hrs. after we arrived, burnt to a crisp. Another dinner arrived about 30... More

Don't come if you want fast food or you are in a hurry - Get reservations- small place and only 1 seating each evening. 4 courses of traditional German food. Homelike atmosphere and very friendly service staff. The owner is very hands on! Each dish is prepared fresh as ordered and worth the wait. German music and decor make it... More

This is one of the most memorable experiences I have had in a long time. Sally & her team were awesome. She confronted us the time we walked in the door and her professionalism and friendliness never stopped. We had reservations for 6:30 and was informed that the table was ours for the entire evening. Our dinner consisted of soup,salad,entree... More

Owner threw something at me that hit me in the back when I walked in and yelled at me to take my hands out of my pockets which all the locals apparently thought was really cute and funny. From then on it was all down hill. No one came over to bring drinks we had to flag down the only... More
