We have eaten pork knuckles in many countries in Europe as well as back home in Australia and this would rate as one of the best. Crackle to die for and meat that was so sweet and tender and juicy - just falling off the bone. We had 2 between 3 people with a side of roasted brussell sprouts and a small fries and were so full we had no room for dessert.

This place also has one of the biggest beer lists I have ever seen anywhere.

A crackling good feed and we would gladly come back here again!!!!

We had a very good visit with great German food and a list of German beers too numerous to count or drink. We arrived at 5pm on Thursday and the atmosphere was quiet. When we left, the noise level was up a little but you could still have a conversation. The Laugenbrezel (pretzel) and the Sauerkraut Kroketten (sauerkraut fritters) are a great choice to start a meal. You are on your own for which beer to order. We had the Wurst Brett.with a selection of each of the 5 wursts (4 made in house). Nice dinner, great service and loved the place.

Very good authentic German food, excellent German beer list. Atmosphere is a little cavernous and loud, service was good.

We were here for first night of Oktoberfest week. Don't ask me - I know it's September.

Enjoyed the selection for the beer flight. Small flight, like a piper cub with only 4 beers

We were shown to our table with no explanation that it was restaurant week. No explanation about the fixed price menu or the price. Our waitress seemed to hate her job - totally unfriendly. Sad she works with the public.

Beer cheese soup, potato pancakes, and schnitzel were good. Apple strudel was odd as it was made with filo dough.

We liked the food and the beer, but the service was pretty bad.

Wanted German and found this on trip advisor, and went Tuesday 9 September. We didn't have a reservation but didn't need one at 6:30, but the place got very busy later so get reservations. I lived in Germany for eight years and this was excellent German food. As Oktoberfest is approaching they had a special Oktoberfest menu available, a four course meal for $35. We had three people in our group and we all try different things. No one had any complaints. It was a great meal at a good price.
