Local favorite. Excellent fresh food and large portions. Friendly staff. Weekend breakfast times always crowded as well as Friday fish fry. Call ahead for reservations if you can.

This small, local restaurant offers German foods and American foods. The potato pancakes for breakfast are the best I’ve eaten and the German Mixed Grill as well as the Sauerbraten are excellent for dinner! The staff is friendly too!

The German nachos are delicious and so is the Schnizle. Very welcoming place as well. I brought my 70 year old Dad and 11 month old baby. Worked for both!
