Fodor's Review

Impressive beer-stein and corkscrew collections and dark-wood paneling lend this restaurant inside an old fort the feel of convivial hunting lodge. The fried Camembert and a few salads notwithstanding, the menu is decidedly meat-centric—beef, chicken, veal, lamb, pork, and sausage—with a nod to Bay State fish and seafood. The main attractions are German dishes such as hoppel poppel ("farmer's omelet," with eggs, onion, potato, bacon, and hot dogs), jaeger schnitzel (veal steak), sauerbraten served with potato dumplings and cabbage, eisbein (pig knuckle), and very good sauerkraut. In winter, try the weisswurst (sausage made with veal and fresh pork bacon).
