Zum Stammtisch was founded in November 1972 by John Lehner, who pursued his dream of opening his own German bar/restaurant after he watched his father run his own. There’s no need to purchase an airplane ticket because the ambiance, aroma, and setting of Germany is the epitome of this restaurant. Staff are dressed in alpine costumes and it’s almost impossible not to envision the magic of Germany the moment you put your forkful of food in your mouth.
