Great comfort food. Gotta love that snitzel, many different types. This is a great restaurant for those who like big meals, you will not be disappointed.

Both of us had schnitzel and both enjoyed it. Lots of types to chose from on the menu. Lots of other food choices too. A little too loud.

It was one of the best choices for dinner and moderately priced. We liked bratwurst with veggies, but wasn't impressed by schnitzel. Amount of food was anormous and I only wish they had small plates options. Food was freshly cooked.

Very busy night when we were there. The server was excellent. The food was ok. The schnitzel I had was kinda dry. My hubby's steak and bernaise was good.

Took some friends visiting from Europe to the Black Forest Restaurant in Harrison Hot Springs for dinner. The restaurant is a favourite and spells 'German' both inside and out. Service was (and usually always is) great. Friendly waitress who, recognizing the European visitors, made a good attempt at speaking some Dutch...to the delight of our friends. Great beer and wine.... More

The german architecture is what draws you into the restaurant in the first place because there are no other restaurants in the Hot Springs area that looks quite like the Black Forest. I wandered in here late one night just to have a couple drinks. So unfortunately, this review is not for the food because the kitchen had just closed... More

This is a fantastic restaurant, we have been there many times and each time it was a wonderful experience. The food and the service is always great. In the summer there is a patio which overlooks the lake and has a beautiful view.

Went there with whole family. Waitress was excellent and friendly. Between us we had steak (so tender and flavorful), schnitzel (tender and moist), curry (surprisingly good), beef roulade (taste is good but slightly dry), chicken and spatzel soup (so good, I don't like those real salty ones, this one is just right). No room for dessert. The bus girl is... More
