Rheinlander German Restaurant Restaurant Review: There's always a celebratory feel at this distinctive German restaurant, opened 50 years ago by celebrated chef Horst Mager, and still operated by the Mager family. Singing servers, a roving accordion player, and the corny castle décor add whimsy to the setting. The menu offers all the German food standards --- cabbage rolls, sausages, sauerbraten, spätzle --- and most dinners include a cheese fondue. Occasionally the traditional menu gets a modern twist, say a slab of local salmon atop a bed of pineapple-habanero sauerkraut. For those in need, gluten-free dishes are also available. The best accompaniment to this fare is a stein or two of robust German beer. Or choose from the many local microbrews, plus other selections from the full bar. Be sure to complete your dining experience with an order of flaky apple strudel. Note: If you arrive without a reservation, a lengthy wait is guaranteed.
