Schnitzelfest!!!

My husband and I have been going to Barb and Ernie's for many years! In fact it was in high school I first came to Barb and Ernie's and the decor (most of which is gone now) inspired me to travel to Europe at 16 on a group trip. Now I've been to Europe 5 times! Dining at B&E's is... read more

Great service, good food and lots of it. The building is dated, but it is full for a reason. I had the eggs Benedict and a pancake. Both were good, but the pancake was huge. I am a big guy, but I did not come close to finishing both. Prices were reasonable as well. Great fun.

Several trips to Edmonton, driving by and i always said we should try that place. Well finally today was the day. I was excited to try it based on past reviews. It was an hour wait at the door. I thought based upon this the food would be fantastic. It was indeed full of diners and very loud, we could... More

Very dissapointed. Six of us went to Barb and Ernie's Saturday at 5pm for dinner. A good friend is moving to Germany Friday and asked that his going away be at an authentic German Restaurant. Convenient to book, great staff, great meal. Five had the buffet, I had the liver. Were asked to go to the cashier to have our... More

This place is wonderful . Great family run biz the old fashion way . Everyone needs to try the Eggs Benny . They are by far the best in the city . Most times there is a line up . It moves fast and is worth the wait . Just go and taste the real food .

Barb and Ernie's Old Country Inn has been an institution in south Edmonton since the 1970's. It has always been a very popular lunch stop for the light industry crowd that work nearby and although it is still in need of a good facelift there have been some positive improvement in the quality of food. The restaurant management has been... More

Have been here several times over the years. Always busy on the weekends, but worth the wait. Has not changed much since it opened in 1975, but now Barb and Ernie have passed the german restaurant on to their son, and it looks like it is in good hands. Schnitzel was great as an addition to my crepes and eggs... More

We've been meaning to go for a while now. Finally enjoyed breakfast/brunch this morning at this Edmonton institution. The eggs benedict was indeed one of the best I've had. Perfectly poached egg and tasty Hollandaise sauce. The serving sizes are generous! Service was friendly. Will try to go back next time I'm really hungry!

Went there for breakfast. The omelettes we had were good - but there was NOTHING German about the food. It was ok. But still it was a weird cobo of an omelette with melon and a quarter of an orange. I am from Germany - and I can tell that the place would be shut down in Germany - for... More

I went here for brunch and I got the platter ($18) with schnitzel and eggs/toast/hash browns/fruit. It was a huge dinner-sized portion but was yummy. My dining partner got the same platter but with sausage instead of schnitzel. The house-made mustards on the side were a nice touch but individual servings (not jars that go between tables, yuck) would have... More
