Has anyone ever been? Looking for the 411 on this place...

    EVER been? Yes...about 20 years ago. I don't recall it being anything special, and completely forgot it existed. Now I'm curious to see if anyone can tell us something about how it is now. Keep in mind that it's close to Seton Hall; my guess is that it's just a local hangout...

      Haven't been in awhile. Love the extensive menu, which also means some things are good, others not. It is reasonable, good and in an interesting area. Also like Harrar (Ethiopian) around the corner and Eden Garden market with a cafe.

        I have been there quite a few times, the most recent trip being a year or so ago. The menu is very interesting because they include a lot of traditional German foods. Most of the food is quite good and they have some very interesting in house brewed beers. Plus they got a shuffleboard table! Only bar I know around me that has one, besides the Elks...

          Skip its very uninteresting fare and go up the block to Cafe Arugula. Their regular menu is pretty good, but their specials are almost always terrific, especially the salads and pork entrees (they use heirloom breed pork and cook it beautifully).
