I love their slightly kitschy "beer garden" section in back. The food is heavy, as you might expect of German cuisine (schnitzel, sausages), but early on it's a decent place to bring kids (who will enjoy the giant soft pretzel on the menu).
They have my favorite German beer (Flensberger!) and the food was fantastic! I've lived in Germany, so I'm always on the hunt for some good German-esque food, and this was the spot!

The rudest treatment I've ever received from a restaurant in my life. We never even made it in. When I called to get directions and contested them sending me south of Franklin instead of north, I was asked if I had a map and when I said yes the man I was speaking to said, ""Good luck!"" and hung up on me.
My family and I were so looking forward to trying them out and enjoying a nice Sunday supper. We'll be dining elsewhere tonight. Can you even believe they hung up on me? I wasn't yelling, I wasn't being rude, I was just disagreeing with their directions and trying to get them to understand that we would be driving east on Franklin and that their directions to turn right on Griffith Park Boulevard would take us south --- AWAY from their restaurant. I wonder if their food is good? We will never know. Nor will any of our friends or relatives. It's amazing how even a stranger's rudeness can ruin your day...

I was a patron of this place for many years and yes I am German. The food is great here, the neighborhood is awesome. unfortunately I showed up on a Tuesday night where they had a German version of Austin Powers lounge singer that wears a white wig. I have never felt so insulted in my life. This lounge singer did nothing but make fun of Germans, the accent, & the culture. what an insult. I don't think I can bare to ever go back. No thank you, why would I want to go to a German restaurant where the entertainment makes fun of Germans?

There is nothing like drinking great German beer while dining in an amazing patio -- perfect atmosphere for gathering with friends. The service is always great with waitresses in Bavarian outfits. Sometimes a pianist plays live music. And the atrium has one of the largest selections of beers I've ever seen.
