  1. My daughter says if the dishwasher position involves a free meal – she’s the woman for the job ☺

    The bratwurst soup and Halbes Haehnchen sound delicious can’t wait to try.

  2. We have dined at Gasthaus frequently. My husband is German and I am Italian and I do not attempt German food. So, when we want good German food we always come to your resturant. We have never been disappointed. We dined with you this past Saturday September 21st, my husbands 69th birthday. We both had the roast beef special and as always it was superb. We were stuffed so we ordered our two favorite desserts to go (Napoleon / Irish cream cake). The Napoleon was not up to standard and the Irish cake was dry and stale. We were surprised and very disappointed. Our to go dessert was obviously not taken from th evenings fresh desserts on display. I thought you would want to know. We would now hesitate to order “to go” because once you get home you can’t send it back.

    • Dear Rosalie and Michael,
      We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your dining experience and visit to our
      However, we are very sorry that this did not apply to our very popular homemade desserts. Since you took your desserts “to go” we do not know when you consumed them and they are never the same out of a box as they are presented on a plate with added ingredients. The Napoleon is not a dessert that keeps well, it is made daily just before we open and should be consumed on the same day. It is made with puff pastry and combined with strawberries and cream does not stay crisp for long. The Irish Cream is a layered chocolate cake sprinkled with Irish cream liquor, apricot jam, chocolate ganage and whipped cream. Our desserts are freshly made daily they do not contain any preservatives and we do not serve or give out stale desserts.
      We apologize for not meeting your standards. The next time you come in for dinner, please ask to speak to the undersigned, Annemarie, and she will compensate you for your desserts.

      Yours truly,

      • Hi Annemarie,
        We opened the desserts about 9pm the same evening. We left Gasthaus about 7:30. We had some friends stop by to share the birthday dessert. We always have the Napoleon or the Irish Creme cake so we are very well aware of the wonderful taste. This night we splurged on both to share with friends. Believe me the Irish Creme cake was old and dry and the Napoleon was just not the same. I know that the desserts sit out all evening in the restaurant. Even though the desserts are quite pricey (but I think worth it) my purpose for writing was not for compensation, I thought you would want to know because of your usual high standards. Thanks for writing.
