This is a cool spot if you’re looking for a full-on German experience in a low-key setting. There’s plenty of kitschy stuff, German decorations, and staff dressed in traditional German garb. We stopped by for lunch on a Sunday. It wasn’t crowded at all — maybe 4 other people in the whole place — and were seated right away in a booth towards the back. We had our three year old in tow and the waitress even brought us a box full of toys to keep him occupied. Apparently, the owner brings in her kids toys whenever he out grows them and keeps them in the restaurant in case any other kids want to play with them. That’s what I call a family-friendly restaurant!

As for the food… well, I know nothing about German food. I opted for the spaetzle ($11) since it seems to be a popular dish. What came to the table was a large plate overflowing with egg noodles, topped with melted Swiss cheese, and surrounded by sliced tomatoes. For an additional $4 sauteed mushrooms and onions were added to it. The serving was large enough for two, maybe even three people. It was a little on the bland side, despite the toppings, but still tasty.

Their beer list and desserts sounded intriguing (especially the apple strudel) so it may be worth a return visit. You can find coupons on line for buy one, get 1/2 off a second entree at http://www.citycoups.c….
