What a bummer! I will never go there again! They refuse to allow two people to share! So, as far as I am concerned, NOT a friendly family restaurant.

They have great German Weiss beer and very good platters for sharing. We also had dinner there and I can recommend the Eisbein for the very hungry traveller.

Food and service was terrible, bread buns previously frozen. The sausages were over cooked and staff were rude.

We had an okay lunch here, food was good, but not the German quality I'm used to, the service was average we had to find our waitress a few times, the Erdinger on tap was fantastic. Great views over the mountains.
