For almost 15 years this small, family restaurant with a big reputation has been serving authentic German fare. Despite its heavy German lean the interior does not, thankfully, go overboard with German decor. The menu includes potato and sausage soup, weiner schnitzel, Rouladen, sauerbraten and goulash. The full bar includes a limited wine list and a nice selection of, German and European beers. Saturdays feature live music.
The name is interesting in its own right, but the real attraction here is the tableside meal preparation. Flambe-style cooking never fails to attract a crowd, and it certainly fills the tables at this extremely popular eatery. The overall feel is casual and friendly. Expect to have a lot of fun when dining here. The pepper steak is one of many delicious entrees, but the desserts are the ultimate flavor treats. Flambe cooking would be nothing without classics like Bananas Foster and Cherries Jubilee. If you are dining with others, order them both and share.
For a taste of the German experience, try this fabulous restaurant. The interior reflects the theme of the menu without going overboard. Accordion fans will want to visit on the weekend when live music is played. It is hard to say if you should order the potato pancakes or the bacon potato salad to go with your wurst and homemade kraut. Both are delicious, so sampling each might not be a bad idea. The potluck platter is the best choice for hearty diners who like to share.
