Dinner for two

Dinner and service was excellent. My husband had the pork hock which was cooked perfectly and I had my favourite rouladen. The food was plenty so no desert for us.

My friend and I had a lovely dinner at the Black Forest Steak & Schnitzel. We both had the Vienna Schnitzel -- it was excellent! The pork was well cooked and the sides were fresh and cooked perfectly. I really enjoyed my meal and would go back again. We sat on the patio which allowed us to take in the... More

What a disappointment...I was a visitor to Harrison Hot Springs many many times during the late 90's and early 2000's. My favorite place to eat dinner was always Black Forest...the food was outstanding and the service impeccable. The older gentleman who owned and ran the place was a stickler for detail and ran a tight ship and it showed in... More

What EXCELLENT service this place had! I was so impressed. The food was amazing as well, I had a regular Black Forest Salad with schnitzel. Cute patio, awesome view. Friendly, overly-helpful and attentive staff. Made dining solo a total treat!

Our large party was welcomed without reservation on a Saturday night. Our server, although new, was friendly, helpful and on the ball. The food was amazing. Comfort food at it's best! If you go before 6pm there are specials that are easier on the wallet. The German beers are wonderful. An all around great meal!

Nice waitress but food was terrible. Meat like leather. Felt bad for staff but worse for myself having paid $28 for an inedible pork dish.

I took a short family vacation to Harrison and had the privilege of eating here. We were seated right away. The wait staff was extremely attentive keeping our drinks full and tending to our needs. Most important, the food was great. I had the Bratwurst Schnitzel and was pleasantly surprised after my first bite. If you are in there area... More

A group of us dined for lunch on July 20th. We were outside ( very dirty, lots of leaves, dirt etc, needed a good sweeping). The service was unbelievably slow, the it was a Monday, it wasn't even very busy. The food was fairly good but not nearly as good as Sunday when 2 of us from our party were... More

A great location right on the main strip. Excellent traditional German cuisine. The price is high, but so is the view. Excellent German Pilsner, a great ambience good staff and customers alike. Recommended for adults and families.

Huge restaurant....the interior is a rustic chalet theme. A little tired. Lots of putdoor seating...a bonus on a nice day. Busy place serving a varied assortmentbof tourists when we were there. Big Japanese group ordering everything on the menu. Must be in a few Japanese guide books. Great for business. The menu festures all types of German specialties but schnitzel... More
