I arrived at Danzer’s with my friend Kylee on a chilly march evening. We were immediately greeted by the friendly hosts and shown to our cozy booth. We were both in the mood for some hearty German cuisine on this particular evening. We initially noticed the charming Bavarian décor and we talked about how nice it would to be on vacation somewhere in the Black Forest instead of in Syracuse during this never ending winter! We decided to begin our meal with German Potato Pancakes, fresh grated potatoes with just a touch of onion, pan fried to crisp perfection and served with apple sauce or sour cream. They were crispy and delicious. For an entrée Kylee decided on one their best sellers, the Big Reuben with lean corned beef, hot sauerkraut, Russian dressing and Swiss cheese, piled on rye bread and grilled open faced and a side of delicious fries. I was feeling a bit more adventurous and ordered the Pan-Fried Liver which was sliceapril2015-dine-greend liver, pan fried with onion, bacon and green peppers and served with gravy and house potatoes. Both of our entrees did not disappoint and totally hit the spot!

At Danzer’s you can always expect to have an authentic meal and a charming, homey atmosphere. Stop by today for a dining experience you won’t soon forget!
