Contemporary German
We have one major focus: the popular German street food - schnitzel. We also have wursts made by local German meat market legend, Binkert's (Rosedale, MD). Other partnerships include a Black Forest Ice Cream Sandwich by Scoop & Paddle (Clarksville, MD).

We use fresh meats and vegetables, never frozen. The pretzels are made by hand by an Army vet who learned to make pretzels in Germany after his service. The sauces are made from scratch. Our cocktail program features both popular and obscure German spirits. The wine program consists of small-production family-owned wineries in Germany and Austria. Beer offerings include a healthy diet of imported German beers and local breweries who make German-style brews.

Join us inside our cozy beer hall, outside on our biergarten, or for take out or delivery! Thanks for being a part of the #schnitzelgang.

    The German style coleslaw and spaetzle are outstanding. The Weiss wurst was super flavorful and mouth tender. And do they know how to make a cocktail absolutely!

    Overall great German food. I wasn’t too sure if I would like the items on the menu when I reviewed online. We ordered the family dinner and it definitely was enough for 2 to 3 people and everything was amazing down to the sauces. The crab pretzel is enough for two people to share, it’s huge and very tasty. The service was wonderful. We went there for a birthday and our waitress was very personable and knowledgeable about the food. We sat downstairs in the bar and it can get quite loud so if you prefer a little more of a quiet atmosphere then you may want to sit upstairs. Will definitely return to try other items on the menu. Oh And my husband lived in Germany for over 10 years and he really enjoyed this German food.

    The room can be noisy but the food, staff, and beer choices make this a common stop for us.

    Thanks so much! Please feel free to request the quieter upstairs area. We'd be happy to accommodate!

    What a great place! We had a reservation for dinner and were seated upstairs in a quieter space. Our server was excellent, as was the food and cold German draft beer. Everything on the menu looked delicious, but we decided to try the specials, which included a brsised, perfectly tender beef with dumplings. Potato cakes are a must try. Warm apple strudel with fresh whipped cream for dessert capped of a perfect evening. Highly recommend and can't wait to come back when it's warmer and outdoor courtyard is open.
