Midwest Living Review
"Oma" means grandmother in German, and this casual eatery, one of the many restaurants contained within the Bavarian Inn complex, serves meals like Grandmother would, with lots and lots to eat! Although Oma's serves three meals a day, breakfast is a popular for its variety of dishes including French toast made with stollen bread (containing raisins and currants) and potato-cheese dumplings (like Tater Tots with a sour cream flavor). We sampled the featured breakfast, which was a tasty trio of pancake flavors -- two plain, two with pecans and two with blueberries (breakfast for two was $16.60). Lunch options include a variety of sandwiches, salads, the ever-popular chicken, pizza and a couple German options (such as a sausage plate for $9.95). At dinner, the menu expands to include pastas, steaks, fish (such as walleye and cod) and a wider variety of German fare, such as veal or pork schnitzel and bratwurst (from $10.50-$20.50). Service is friendly and efficient. Children are happily accommodated; although should they become restless, there's a peacock pen just outside and the glockenspiel at the original Bavarian Inn featuring an enactment of the Pied Piper of Hamlen is a short walk over the Holzbrucke covered bridge.
