Coming from a half German half Austrian ancestry, I grew up eating all kinds of German food. Black Forest does it right. Their schnitzel is perfect, and their portion sizes give you dinner that night and lunch the next day! Well priced, decent beer selection....More

Located in a small shopping plaza off Market St, could be easy to miss. Has indoor and outdoor dining. Décor is not much to look at (German-wise), but very clean and the food is ample and quite good. Staff was very friendly.

This place is a gem and I love going here when I am in Hburg. The food is prepared artfully as the vegetables are not over cooked and the meat does not arrive in a bed of grease. The delicate, flaky pastry for desert crackles...More
