Special note: if they have Carl Jung "de-alcoholized" wines, give 'em a try. They make great gifts for people who have been put on cholesterol-lowering drugs, and therefore ought not to have any alcohol. You can order them on Internet from Carl Jung winery; just search for it.As for the food, it's exactly what you think it is. They make same nice mixed platters of wursts and cheeses, and I think the thing to do is get one, share it among your party over a glass of German wine, enjoy the music, and move on to Italy.

The bratwurst - very good. Be sure to have it with the curried catsup
The pretzel rolls - pretzels are my comfort food, and these were just so good! Like what pretzels in the park, or anywhere for that matter, should taste like.
And for dessert - well, being allergic to milk my choices were limited, very limited... only applesauce. But this wasn't your run-of-the-mill mots: this was fresh! I had two entire bowls... it was that good!
The oompa band was a nice touch. I enjoyed their show greatly. It would have been more fun if I had someone to dance the polka with, or someone to teach me to polka for that matter, but the wonderful food made up for the lack of dance partner.
Check this place out for dinner... it's well worth it!

The food is basically a sampler of German cuisine. Sausages, pork, patatoes and cabbage are all represented. The schnitzel was chicken and not veal, perhaps for political correctness. The spatzel was some of the best I've had in the U.S. I didn't see any sauerkraut though, although I've heard they have served it at points. Deserts include pudding, strudels and black forest cakes. The Biergarten offers the usual soft drinks, plus wine and beer. They serve beers in normal-sized (to Americans) pint glasses or in large glass steins (which will run patrons almost as much as the meal itself, about $9). The beers are German, such as Becks.
The dining hall is designed like a small Bavarian town plaza at night. The ceiling is dark with the moon over one of the mock buildings. The tables are communal and you may be seated with complete strangers. This also fits into the Oktoberfest feel of the place.
On the wall opposite the entry and buffet is a stage. At fairly regular intervals a band comes out and offers a sampling of German music. They play mostly "oompah" music like polka, but there are also demonstrations of German tradition instruments, such as bells and horns. There is a dance floor right below the stage where the bandleader invited people to dance, but nobody took up the challenge while we were there.
