    55555 by Eric F.

  • Kyle M.For the BEST in German beers and brats (not to mention the potato salad and spatzle), look no further. Despite the name this IS a sit-down restaurant (with some bar stools) with lots of seating. Excel

    55555 by Kyle M.

  • Jason aMust have pretzels

    55555 by Jason a

    55555 by joanne

  • Ray E.I'm a potato salad snob, amd theirs is among the best I've ever eaten. That's saying something because I've eaten a lot of potato salad all over, from Germany to Calif.

    55555 by Ray E.

    55555 by Christine N.

    55555 by jody
