Big classy hotel restaurant. Travlr and I were almost the only ones there for lunch. Located close to some historic civil war sites, which is cool. Anyways, the food was good and reasonably priced, with great service, though the tap list was sparse and very German.

Large classy place n the Potomac River. Ratskellar was closed so we ate lunch in the dinig room. Food was excellent, service was terrific. Two German beers on tap, plus a bunch of bottles - several of which I had not rated despite having lived in Germany for four years. Antietem battlefield is nearby.

Very nice German-style inn overlooking the river. I ate in the large dining area, which was elegant and very European. I was expecting a better beer selection, but was happy with my Ayinger Altbairisch Dunkel (my Merchant du Vin rep tells me that they go through more of that stuff than any place on the east coast). Franziskaner, a Pinkus, Spaten Lager, and a couple other Ayingers were available, along with some macros and Sam Smith Oatmeal Stout. Food is incredible--I had wiener schnitzel topped with anchovy and capers with cabbage. Excellent.
