We feature an exceptional selection of German beers on tap and by the bottle, as well as a full bar.

Authentic German food is prepared nightly, with a special dinner served every third Friday of the month at our Guest Chef Night.  You can view our weekly Menu on our Facebook page.  

There's always traditional music, singing, and plenty of toasts throughout the night.

Come join the fun, and don't forget to wear your Lederhosen!
