European and American flags crown Redlefsen's Rotisserie & Grill, symbolizing the cuisine that can be found within. The restaurant specializes in German cuisine, particularly wiener schnitzel. When preparing this dish, cooks observe traditional techniques: they pound out the veal with a German dictionary, and then bread, fry, and accentuate it with lemon, capers, and anchovies. Chefs also create French-inspired chicken Provence and draw inspiration from Italian and Portuguese cookbooks. To complement meals, the restaurant maintains a diverse collection of imported beer, including Leffe Blond and Warsteiner.

Every Wednesday and Thursday in October, the restaurant celebrates Oktoberfest. Accordion players fill the beer hall with traditional melodies and the Alpenblumen Bavarian dancers perform folk dances.

Named one of Esquire's 20 Best New Restaurants when it opened in 2005, DeWolf Tavern crafts unique dishes that blend fresh, local seafood with the culinary traditions of America and India.

Situated in a renovated 1818 warehouse, the restaurant beckons diners to gather warmth from its brick fireplace in the winter and wall-mounted light fixtures in the summer, when no heat is actually needed
