Food was good service was nice and fast. The food was a little bland for my taste but good all the same and very authentic. And the baked goods are very good. I will definitely be returning on a regular basis.

Delicious reuben sandwich and even better Jager schnitzel! Ordering through their website was really easy. Haven't tried their desserts but they looked amazing. This place is a solid choice and will be coming back.

Hands down a local favorite. Cookies are sooooo good you will come back just for them! Chicken tortilla soup? Yes, please! Matzah ball soup according to Gunther is a cure all soup. And I believe him! I always get it when I’m feeling a little under the weather.

I placed my order by phone. The Reuben sandwich was good. I requested the 1000 island dressing on it but got mustard instead. I ordered a Caesar salad without chicken and was told the cost would be $10.95. I confirmed that it would have Parmesan cheese and croutons. I wasn't confident with the person who took my phone order. When I p ... read more

Outstanding diner! Gunther’s gets a lot right on their menu which I could go into at length. However, my go-to is the Rueben. Simply great. Lots of meat, the right amount of kraut and everything else. The other must eat is the chocolate chip cookie. My strong recommendation is to take a few home for later. Then when you are ready, pu ... read more

Slowly moving my way through this menu and they haven't put a foot wrong yet. Try the Knockwurst sammich, add bacon to that bad boy, absolutely sublime! Matzo ball soup is on point.
