Dreamland Palace treats taste buds to authentic German flavors with a menu brimming with schnitzels, wursts, and Deutschland specialties. Potato pancakes arrive to tables slathered in mushroom gravy ($4.75), and bite-size bratwurst slices await dunks into pools of german mustard ($4.95). While an alpenschnitzel's cut of tender pork ($14.95) tumbles into diner mouths, a toasted pretzel bun cradles knockwurst steamed in beer ($8.95). Culled from co-owner Joan Lang's family recipes, traditional German specialties such as tender braised rabbit marinated in red-wine sauce ($17.95) enchant palates as rivulets of German, Belgian, or Czech beers flow down tongues. The rustic building that houses Dreamland Palace has gone through innumerable incarnations since its erection in 1875, such as a general store, stagecoach shop, dance hall, and mother of younger, smaller buildings.

Dreamland Palace German Restaurant

Steeped in a rich history that includes incarnations as a general store, a dance hall, and a stagecoach stop, Dreamland Palace dates back to 1875. With more than a century of laughter and good times embedded in its walls, the well-loved building exudes cozy German charm with its architecture, decor, and most important of all, cuisine. Beer steins and the occasional cuckoo clock line the walls of the cottage, and low-hanging Tiffany-style lamps illuminate aromatic plates of wurst, often accompanied by savory cabbage and potato pancakes.

Customer Reviews

Authentic atmosphere made us feel like we were in a little rural Inn out in the countryside of Germany. The food was delicious as well!

Very fun place with a fairly accurate German ambiance. It is somewhat out of the way but that depends where you are traveling from. Food was reasonably good and authentic and the owner greets everyone personally. Nice place to have a fun meal.
