This steakhouse is lovely! The ambiance, location and staff was great. We started with the Prawns Tropaz for an appetizer. This is large enough to share between 2-3 people. The flavor was excellent! Schnitzel Champignon was amazing! Could possibly be the best I've ever had. Also, enough to share between two people. The Prime Rib 10 ounce was a perfect... More

Unfortunately 4 family adults had dinner and were all disappointed. We have been there before and have always enjoyed the food. This time is just was not the same and just average. Not sure if it is worth another try in hopes it will return to the good food we have come to expect.

Am not a very critical but gotta say something here, first frozen "Texas Toast" is a bad sign. Chef Ramsey would have a heydey with this place, everything is bland, some of the sauce I saw with others meals looked like it had been sitting in the corner of a freezer for weeks. Been here twice both times during dinner... More

I've been here many times with family and friends. The wait staff is always great and the food is always served hot and promptly. They serve steak and traditional German food. You can't go wrong with either selection. The salsa are excellent too. I enjoy eating here.

We had a very good dinner with regards to the food on a recent visit. We had 2 different schnitzel dishes, which were excellent. The sides (potatoes, red cabbage, and beans) were also excellent. Unfortunately, the service was subpar. I think it was because there were only 2 servers in the dining room. After we got our food, our waiter... More

Stumbled on this place and found it quiet, the staff was friendly and the food was good. I ordered a beer I didn't know about and they brought me a sample of that and another to try before bringing my glass. I appreciated the thoughtfulness as I didn't like the one I had first ordered and preferred the 2nd option.

We arrived at 7:30 on Sunday. The bar seating was only half full. We seated ourselves outside so we could listen to the live piano music. A waitress eventually walked by us. She visited with people near us. We had to flag her to acknowledge us. Took 20 minutes to get 2 beers. I ordered to appetizers. My husband decided... More

After reading the reviews most were either ones or fives. Very few in between. Had a good meal, steak for me, wife had the schnitzel. Both were good and filling, couldn't finish and so much we did not even have dessert. Dated decor, but not bad. Heard some good things about the steak. Had the low end and it was... More

We were in the mood for steak. We both ordered the rib eye. The steak itself was very good. We ordered the fried calamari and it was toooo salty and the sauces were just not up to par for the prices although the sour cream sauce for the baked potato was outstanding. The salad was good and the blue cheese... More

We went out on Friday night with friends. We have been here several times in the last year. Most of the time we go to the bar. The last two times we went to the restaurant. Our last visit was not pleasant and as I look back they have been getting worse. We wanted prime rib but they were sold... More
