The food and service were fantastic, my only complaint would be the location of our table. We were seated in the bar area and our table was located in the flow of incoming/outgoing traffic as well as outside of the men’s room. Thanks

The whole night was fun. The food was good and plentiful. The music great Suggestion: When reserving a table it would be nice to say back of the room or the front near band. Up front difficult to talk.

Everything was great. I wanted a 6:30 reservation, but it was only available for 7:00. However, arriving at 6:30, my table is already reserved for me for 7:00.

My young friend Matt and his wife loved the evening, and the atmosphere, food and German beers. I don't like beer; I drink soda or wine. Did you ever think of having Rhein wines on order?

Initially we had a dining room reservation and our server ignored our table for over 15 minutes. We then moved to a table over at the bar area and were served immediately. The schnitzel was fabulous as well as the red cabbage. However, the sausage was over grilled and dry. German sausage is not meant to be thrown on the grill but rather boiled and if necessary, pan fried for a few minutes. Our service at the bar was outstanding as usual and the selection of beer was great. As far as the ambience goes, Wunderbar! We will be back but hope that some minor adjustments can be made in the kitchen to showcase the delicious sausage that you do offer.

Maybe a table decoration steak was a little expensive some music playing and do something with the empty flower boxes could replace with shutters

Totally excited to see meatless options on the menu! The portabella mushroom with vegetables entree a few weeks ago was delicious! Hope it will be on the menu again some time. Any plans to add side salad to the menu? The desserts ...flan and the angel food cake type dessert soaked in milk...FANTASTIC!!! Keep doing what you are doing!

The only concern for dinner was they did not have the one entry I wanted for dinner available (at the time of our reservation). I chose an alternative, which was tasty. All in all, it was a good meal experience with great service.

I'm pleased that the Liederkrantz is 'back in business'. My group sat @ a table for 10 folks & that worked quite well..we were happy! ..The new chef is doing a great job..love the 'roasted' potatoes. The weiss wurst was a bit 'tuff' though I like it & would order it again. Continued 'best wishes' to the Club...

Four items were on the menu and the two we selected were not available as supply was exhausted. This has been a recurring problem at our club for years .
