THE FLAVORS OF EUROPE WITH A PERSONAL TOUCH
"Nice to have a new restaurant in town with fair prices. Food was excellent, and service was great. Very friendly inside. Great to see a family owned restaurant with authentic German food. I like how there is a lot to choose from on the menu also. Don't Hesitate to try this place..."
"Great food with lots of thought put into every bit of it. They are new to the city, but I highly suggest you check them out."
"The unique to the area cuisine is a big hit in my opinion. The food was delivered to the table hot, delicious, and by an extremely friendly staff that is on top of making sure you are pleased in every aspect. Will absolutely be going back to try more of the menu!! Prices: Amazing value / very affordable. Flavor: New, refreshing. Atmosphere: Cozy and warm. Staff: Extremely tentative."
"As soon as I read that there was a new German restaurant in town, I told the husband and we quickly made plans for a visit. Essen on Main did not disappoint. We went for breakfast this morning; the owner greeted us with a big smile and an eagerness to tell us all about the place, especially the carefully chosen menu. We went with the quiche lorraine, german potato pancakes and the French Ham and Cheese sandwich (Croque Monsieur) with béchamel and gruyere cheese on top and broiled. We enjoyed every bite and brought the rest home for lunch. There are a lot more dishes we are anxious to try...so we will be going back very soon. You should stop in...you won't be sorry!"
"Friendly staff. Creative menu. Nice setting."
"Relaxing atmosphere. Excellent service. Affordable Menu. Variety coffee selection."
"We enjoyed the German Breakfast skillet and the Schnitzel Breakfast! Warm, friendly owner and help. Good Luck!"
"I had the opportunity to try a few of the featured plates at this unique, new restaurant. The food was absolutely incredible! Great experience overall."
"Just got done with breakfast, John and crew for only being open a few weeks is doing a great job. I have spent 8 1/2 years in Germany and this brought back a bunch of memories."
"Had breakfast at Essen today after reading about the restaurant in the newspaper last week. The staff was very friendly and my German breakfast skillet came out hot and was very tasty. Looking forward to trying more of the menu."
"Excellent food! A nice change of pace from the Pub Food scene in RO. The farmers breakfast, curry wurst, potato pancakes and French onion soup were outstanding! Authentic and delicious! There’s something for every palate too. Owner is terrific and the staff is friendly and efficient. Check it out."
"I had the farmers skillet and it was delicious. Service was excellent also. Shelby recommended a couple items and she was right about them both! I will be coming back to try more of their menu."
"Service is great, I would recommend Jodi or Shelbie. Owner is very nice, friendly and makes the atmosphere comfortable. Crepes are delicious, so is the coffee. Will be coming back, for sure. Also, bryan is a great chef."
"My buddy and I were driving to another place to eat when he spotted this place and told me, Essen is German, meaning eat. So that is how we ended up here. When we came inside, there was a lady playing music on the Keyboard, which I thought added a nice touch to the late lunch experience. We get seated, and then we are greeted by our server Brie. I will never forget her name because she said Brie, Brie like Cheese. LOL
Brie was accommodating with recommendations. I ended up getting The Schnitzel Breakfast with a side of bacon. It was delicious, and My buddy got Crepes with bacon on the side. I also got dessert, and Brie recommended the Austrian Fluffy Pancake Dessert with vanilla ice cream. Everything I had, including the Ice Tea, was delicious. I have told five people already that they should come to check this place out. I will be coming back."
"Drawn in by the crepes and the farmers breakfast online pics. Staff was friendly and service was good. Understanding this is a new local restaurant, there are always reasons to choose to wait to give it a try, but we are so glad we didn't wait!! We will work this in to our places to eat routine!! Yum"
