Took Bill to the Schnitzel Ranch (finally). University Drive near Red Lobster and Richard's Lighting. Definitely worth another visit! I had the jaeger schnitzel and mashed potatoes. Bill had the wiener schnitzel with pan fried potatoes. The schnitzel comes in either pork, or chicken. We both picked the pork, of course. It was thick, tender and perfectly crunchy on the outside. Not skimpy at all. The meat took up 3/4 of the plate! We both had to-go boxes. I have to tell ya, the jaeger gravy was fabulous with huge mushrooms (which I picked off, because I don't eat mushrrooms, but love the brown gravy). We didn't get a veggie because I think all they had to choose from was red cabbage, side salad, or sauerkraut. Don't like any of those, so we both ordered a double helping of potatoes. Wish they had green beans or peas, like my favorite restaurant in Germany. (: They also served a tiny, delicious, teaser slice of nutty brown German bread, plus a slice of rye that was chewy and moist, just like it's supposed to be. Definitely different from other local restaurants where they bring you an entire loaf. The teaser pieces just made you appreciate them more. I had the chocolate nusskuchen and Bill had the apple streudel for dessert. Mine was perfect, like pecan pie but 100x better, because of the chocolate filling and the flaky crust. Bill said his apples could have been a little sweeter, but it complimented his cup of coffee perfectly. Over all, it was a great German meal. Tons better than Ol' Heidelberg. $35 for both of us. It was pretty crowded, but the waitress (I'm assuming also the owner) was quick footed and friendly and she spoke German to those who tried.
I eat here quite regularly, for both lunch and dinner. A very nice family resturant with a very friendly staff. Personally, I have never had a problem with long waits or poor service. Not as fancy as some other German options in town, but less expensive and always good food.
We eat at this restaurant quite often, and have never been disappointed. To the person complaining about the wait, well that is your typical restaurant anywhere in Germany. All you have to do is tell the lady you would like it certain ways and she will do it. She is eager to please everyone.Germans use their meal time to socialize and relax, that is why they don't react quite as fast .Communication will solve that problem . I so love this place and can't wait to go back!!
I went two or three times when it first opened and the food was OK, not great. I stopped going when my daughter ordered the schnitzel with cheese and it came with a slice of American cheese half melted on the schnitzel. Disgusting!
We have eaten here 4 times and it is definitely excellant, authentic German food with large portions and reasonable prices. As good as the food is, I have never had worse service. The staff is friendly, but be prepared for long waits, no refills and you'll probably have to go find someone to get your check. We gave them 4 opportunities and the service was equally as bad everytime. I hate to miss out on the food but it's just not worth putting up with the service.
Our extended family ate here during Christmas and the food really did remind me of German cuisine from the Karlsruhe and Pirmasens area where I lived for 6 years. What's missing is German music but I bet that will come soon. We shall return!
