Friday Fish with outside dining last Friday night for a party of 9 The Bretzel appetizer was huge and was great for our large group. The baked cod is 1 lb. of baked fish with outstanding home made potato pancakes. They have a combo fish fry with a Bacon bratwurst that was a hit with the guys.

We waited 3 hours for food on a holiday weekend! Staffing was terrible for it being a beautiful holiday weekend. The beer garden was packed but there weren't many people in the restaurant/bar. I feel as though the customers in the restaurant/bar should take priority on food orders over those in the beer garden.

If there is only one kitchen & limited staff then limit the menu items in the beer garden & prioritize those patrons who came to eat in the restaurant. One of our tables meals came out an hour before the others, then the other meals were taken to another table "by accident" when we finally all ate & got the bill, 3 1/2 hours after getting there, we were over charge to boot! They removed a few items from our bill however we almost feel as though we should have been paid to sit there for over 3 hours! At least we had time since it was a holiday weekend & we had no other plans. There were tables around us that left before eating and many complained to the staff/management/owner about the long wait but they almost seemed to argue with the client's! One table finally got their food before us (even though they were seated well after us) and got up & left before even eating! Plan in advance & focus on customer service.

This place brings you back to Germany. Delicious scnitzel, pork shank and great beer? The portion sizes reminded me of Germany too, enough to share or bring home for later.

A group of us gather recently to watch one of the NFL playoffs and have our first visit to the Old German Beer hall since its change from Jerrys. We loved the remodeling and the feel of the hall. We had great waitress and they had a great selection of beers. one problem that happened just keeps bothering me, couple of people in our group ordered shots of the German Obstler spirit (which is clear) and the proceeded to toast each other and from the look on their faces I knew something was not right. on further inquiry they both said it had ZERO taste. A few of use tried a little bit of it and confirmed it was nothing more than water. We talked with our waitress and she confirmed it was water and produced a couple more shots of the real stuff. The excuse offered was pretty weak, claiming it was a display bottle and got mixed in with the stock. I guess it is not good business practice to fill empty liquor bottle with water for display. This so put us off I don't thing we will return, too bad as for not this issue it would have been at least a 4 or 5 visit

First I would like to apologize as this should never have happened. Yes we do have display bottles filled with water and marked on the bottles H20 so that they do not get mistaken as the real thing. We would never try to pass water as a liquor knowingly. I will be talking with the bar staff to make sure this never happens and agin and hope you will return and give us a better review.
Sorry again
