Food was terrible - and service was not great. Food tasted old and frozen. Poor quality, especially for the price. DO NOT LISTEN TO REVIEWS - it is awful!
After living in Austria and traveling in Europe, the food here was just okay. We had the gulasch and the sauerbraten. The atmosphere was cozy but definitely needed some air circulation. The waitress, single-handedly managed hostess duties as well as taking orders. Professional, efficient- she was great.
Just an average meal
My wife ordered the cabbage rolls w/ fried potato cakes, applesauce, spinach and carrots. The potato cakes were inedible. The cabbage rolls were a bit soggy and just ok in flavor. But the vegetables were very good. I ordered the beef goulash with spaetzle. It was good, but not up to true Tyrolean standards. The Hefeweizen beer also lacked in flavor. All in all, just an average meal, and less than we had expected.
Great food and service
If you like German food, this is your place! Blue Heron is rght downtown and has a very cool decor. The food is excellent with large portions, fantastic desserts, and good service.
I ate the barbecue brisket and it was tender and flavorful with a vinegary finish and it has become my standard against which I measure other restaurant brisket. The decor and music were delightful and it felt like a real get away to Bavaria.
