Chef Brigitte and Wolfgang are nice people. However the food is average and severely overpriced. Even small dishes run about $10. If you want to have some German food and beers, it's ok but I think there are better places around.

I made reservations for 7:oo pm for a specific table two days in advance personally with the owner because I was impressed with the food from an earlier visit and was bringing some special german friends from W Palm Beach. Upon arriving at 6:45 pm I found the table occupied. I approached the owner about the table and he checked his book and agreed about the reservation then left the area. A waitress approached us and said it was a mistake and wanted us to take a less privately located table. I said no as we had chosen that table for the privacy and expected them to honor our reservation. She went and got the owner who said he couldn't be expected to keep a table open for two hours (they open at 5pm. I pointed out that the couple at the table ahd not been served when we arrived and there were other tables open so it did not interfere with his businesss and requested he honor his reservation. He said he could not disturb the other people and wanted us to take the other table. I said what was he going to do. He offered to buy me a drink. I laughed and said my embarrasment was not mollified by a drink. So, he offered to buy the table a round of drinks and I accepted. That would have been fine except for what happened next. During the evening the owner visited each table and asked the people how the meal was (traditionally a german respect) and intentionally ignored our table located where he had to walk by to do this. Then when we recieved our bill it still included the drinks. I did not mention this as I was already embarrassed by his behavior in front of people who knew the protocol. He also bid patrons good evening as they left. As we prepared to leave the resturant he abruptly walked out of the room without even acknowledging our patronage as he did the others.

As a customer I choose where to spend money and I will not return to this resturant where I had hoped I found a great place that reminded me of my wonderful times living in Germany. Obviously this man has forgotten the respectfuland kind ways of his past country now that he is living in the USA. Shame on him!

What a surprise - to go on a beach vacation and find this little gem in a strip mall. We felt like old friends in this small but cozy restaurant and were served like family.

The food was absolutely phenomenal and the service was great. We shared a schnitzel dish with mushroom sauce and the schweinbraten (sp?) and couldn't decide which one was the best. The whole menu would have been my preferred order.

Can't wait to go back!

PROS: Friendly and Fabulous Food!!
CONS: None I can think of.
