It's Our 55th Anniversary!

Established May 15th, 1965

We've seen a lot of things over 55 years. In fact, we thought we'd seen everything. And then there is a global pandemic that causes us to be closed on our 55th Anniversary! Don't worry, when the time comes, we will celebrate.

When it all started

Erich Christ and his brother Gerhard started the restaurant together after Erich got out of the army. They opened on May 15, 1965. It was a small 3.2 bar that had been a series of bars and clubs over the decades - few of them lasting more than a couple of years. We are definitely the longest tenured business here!

Changing and growing

Erich and Joanne bought Gerhard out and made it their family's business. Over the years, they expanded the restaurant, the menu and the property. The business hit its stride in the mid seventies, and, with the opening of the beer garden, continued successfully for many, many years.

Going with the flow

We're making the best of the wurst, and staying open for take out orders. There has been nothing like this in our 55 years - and we've had shootings, streakers, proposals, bomb threats, bar fights, fires, weddings, family reunions, dance lessons, break-ins, fog machines and almost anything else you can think of. So call us for some food! We're here. And when this is over, join us for a proper celebration!
