What is Your Cover Charge for Entertainment?
There is never a cover charge in our Biergarten or Restaurant. All Entertainment is always free of charge.
Is your restaurant smoke free? Yes, the restaurant, Banquet hall and Arcade are smoke free. You can smoke in our Biergarten or anywhere out side our building. Just make sure it's out when your done.
Can I bring a cake? Yes, if you're having a special event. However, unless you make special arrangements, you must bring your own plates and serving utensils.
Do you have Accommodations for RV parking or can I set up a tent? Right now, No, but We have 5 acres behind the Biergarten for future RV parking and camping. We are currently seeking a 2nd party investor to install all the required utilities. When finished, the RV/camp site/laundry mat/ would be open year around.
Can I bring my pet? We do not allow pets in our Restaurant or Biergarten. We have had just too many dog bites. Our Biergarten is family friendly with lots of kids. If a child pokes your dog in the eye and your pet bites, you are liable for damages plus your pet is impounded for 2 weeks as per Williamson County. It's just not worth it.
What is on your Buffet? Most of the menu items are on the Buffet. We start with a large Salad Bar consisting of; our Homemade Potato Salad, Broccoli Salad, Cucumber Salad, Tomato Salad, Green Bean Salad, Mushroom Salad and Tossed Salad, with sides of Cheese, Black Forest Ham, Eggs, Croutons, Salad Peppers, cut Pineapple, Fruit Cocktail Pudding and our Homemade Potato Soup. Entrees start with our; Famous Bratwurst, Schweinebraten, Sauerbraten, and Wienerschnitzel. Followed by Red Cabbage, Sauerkraut, Catfish, Shrimp, Grilled Salmon on a bed of Herb Rice, Homefries, Spaetzle, Texas Style Brisket or Ribs, Meatballs, Seasonal Casserole, Cabbage Rolls, Jaeger Gravy and Baked Bread. Sunday Buffet is a smaller version of our favorites.
Do you need reservations? We recommend reservations due to the large amount of seating we have. Unlike a small restaurant that seats 40-50 people, we seat 250 plus. Reservation's allow us to staff properly for the amount of customers. "we have a staff of over 30 " A must for Friday and Saturday evenings and large groups on Sundays. Walkin's are always welcome, but you could experience a wait sometimes. We do not reserve tables in the Biergarten unless it's a party of (150+)
How Long will you hold my reservation if I'm running late? On weekends, when we are extremely busy, we will hold your table 15 minutes from your reservation time. After 15 minutes expire, we consider your reservation as a "no show"and give your table to someone waiting in line. If your running late "caught up in traffic" just give us a call and we will hold your table.
How much does it cost for your Banquet hall?
Our Banquet hall seats around 60 people. We do not charge for the hall when you "wine and dine" with us. It is upstairs & we do require a minim of 40 in your group.
Do You accept Credit Cards? Yes we accept all major Credit Cards. But, we prefer cash or check. Credit card processing cost us up to and over $3,000.00 per month. "I know unbelievable" But It forces all businesses to raise their prices on their product just to cover the cost of the skymiles. American Express is the Highest!
What happened to the original front doors?
Sadly, We had to remove them to keep our old building up to today's safety codes. We do try our best to preserve everything original as possible and still satisfy the Insurance/ County Fire requirements. "We still have the original mercantile front doors and the large fan that operated for 80+ years to use somewhere else on the property". The same thing with the the old mercantile stove. It was not safe to light anymore. So we replaced it with a fireplace using old brick and lumber to fit the building decor.
Does your Buffet only have German Food? Our Restaurant has both German and American Cuisine. We have mainly German, however if someone in your group prefers American, we have it. In fact our Chicken Fried Steaks are one of the best in the area.
How often does band play inside the restaurant? During the warm seasons, we have our Biergarten open and the bands preform outside under the tent. Our entertainment moves inside the restaurant when the Biergarten is closed. If we have cold or rainy evenings the band plays inside the restaurant. During festivals we also have live entertainment playing inside as well as the Biergarten. We always have live entertainment on Friday and Saturday starting around 7:30 all year around. We are open Rain or shine. There is never a cover charge.
Why is the event calendar blank for next month.
We always have live entertainment every Friday and Saturday with no cover charge. Most bands travel to different gigs, so we can't post where they will be until that month. We try and keep at least two weeks in advance notice.
How does your online reservation system work?
When you make an online reservation you will receive an automated reply from our web server. (Your reservation is not confirmed.) When we receive your E-reservation , we check availability for your party and e-mail you back with a conformation. All reservations are on a first come first serve basis. We can't guarantee all request like (we want a round table, close to the band, sit by the fireplace) etc. The earlier your reservations are, the better your chances for a special request. On overflow nights, we seat reservations upstairs in the banquet hall. If you don't type your e-mail address correct, you won't hear back from us. If you have spam blocker, our conformation might not get through either. If your party is larger than 10 please, make a comment on your reservation.
