I read other reviews about service but I didn't let them stop me and I am glad I didn't! We had a great experience from the time we walked in until we left. The restaurant itself is rustic with heavy wood decorations, chairs and tables, appropriately decorated to make you feel all Germany. Our waitress and other staff were very attentive and friendly. They were knowledgeable about the menu items.
I drove the 2 hours having seen an article about it. I looked up their menu online and was intrigued by a pretzel to feed 4. Seeing not many vegetarian options I thought I was just going for the pretzel--I was pleasantly surprised to see a Vegetarian black bean burger on the actual menu! I was also happy to find out the spaetzle was not made in a chicken broth also making them vegetarian friendly!
The pretzel alone was worth the drive. Not only was it tasty but it was bigger than my head! It came with 3 dipping sides--but my preferred was the the ale cheddar. The black bean burger was not your run of the mill store bought kind--and it was delicious! It came with fries but I opted to have the spaetzle instead. They were a bit plain, but some salt and pepper made them perfect.
I found the portions of the sides more than worth the $3. They were huge! I also sampled the smashed red skin potatoes and found them to be super flavorful--a great choice! We ended our meal with both a carrot cake and black forest cake. The carrot cake was just as moist as the menu described. The black forest cake was also great--(I always worry about these cakes being dry--not a worry here!)
It definitely is worth a trip! But they are only open Monday-Friday so plan accordingly!
