Still a solid dining choice!

They really do their crispy schnitzel very well, and overall the German cuisine was tasty and well prepared.

Very good food and good portions. Try the goulash soup, it is little picy but very good. The service was very good and the prices very reasonable.

The food at the Black Forest is wonderful! The portions are huge, the taste amazing, and the wine list is very nice! We dined there on a Saturday night in mid January and the restaurant was packed! A good indication of a great place. I had the combo platter, so I could try several different meats. The schnitzel was delicious,... More

It had been years since I indulged in a traditional Vienna schnitzel and the offering of the restaurant was too good to miss. And it was a very fortunate choice because it was a great schnitzel which came with spatzle (option). And the serving was generous. Beer is also offered and the wheat beer I chose was a gem. So...

Staff made room for us without a reservation during the Christmas season - and asked that we use the table for an hour...No problem! With two hungry kids in tow we were guaranteed good service! Our waitress asked the kids if they knew what schnitzel was - 'of course!' they replied (having traveled to Germany/Austria) . There were the traditional... More

While on a tour of BC we stopped for a night in Harrison Hot Springs. As we already had a dinner we decided to grab something to drink. We were very fortunate to have visited this place. We ordered Krombacher beer and black forest cake (strange combination - I know). Both the beer and the cake were great. Service first... More

A fixture for decades in Harrison Hot Springs, this place looks and feels like Germany. There are three German beer varieties on tap, and a large selection of schnitzel dishes. The Jaegerschnitzel had a rich mushroom sauce, and was served with spaetzle; a schnitzel and bratwurst combo satisfied even a hungry teen-age appetite. The Bavarian mousse dessert was smooth and...
