The restaurant in on the trolley line and near some of the Memphis attractions. Also, it's in "The SOUTH MAIN ARTS DISTRICT" which is an attraction unto itself. Not only was the food tasty and reasonable, bu the staff is great.

Authentic German cuisine in a beautifully, restored historical building. The service is excellent and the hot potato salad is something you just shouldn't miss! You'll be hooked!

Nice place in downtown Memphis. We went before the theater. Good German food with friendly service. Much less crowed compared to Beale Street. Good value.
