Centally located this restaurant is an authentic German experience. From the servers outfits to the hand crafted booths it feels like you are in Germany. The food is also authentic Germany. We love the schnitzel but for a smaller appetite the schnitzel burger which is not actually a burger but a smaller version of the traditional schnitzel would be a... More

I went to the Black Forest Inn last week with my parents. We arrived at the restaurant at around 2pm on a Saturday. Surprisingly it was pretty busy. I ordered the Vienna schnitzel. Everything overall was pretty good. A little more seasoning was required for the schnitzel. Service was quick and attentive. I'd go back again if I was in... More

Hearty Austrian Food, good value, big portions, old world ambiance. Our family has been going there for 50 years or more. Hunter, and Paprika Shncitzels are my faves. Soups and Salads are awesome. Everything is fresh always. Service is good. If you want to dine early, get there by four, if you don't care, you sit in the booths in... More

Black Forest Inn is a family restaurant featuring hearty German food in hefty portions. It's obviously a popular spot as the waitress appeared to know many of the patrons. We went on a Thursday night and had a short wait for a table. The menu features a variety of schnitzels, some platters, and more, but the schnitzels are the main... More

Been coming here since I was a kid, and never let down. My parents came here in the 60's. Apparently it was the place to be. It still is now. Quality food and great value for your money every time. LOVE!!

When it comes to eating out in Hamilton you cannot go wrong with a trip to the Black Forest Inn. This time we went on a Wednesday evening at 6pm with a group of nine. Our hostess set up a corner table and promptly had us seated. Our waitress treated us all like old friends. The food is always plentiful,... More

Excellent food and portions with superb service. Mother's Day is a big day here, and is 1st come 1st served, but they are efficient so you won't wait long. I have been taking my family for more than 15 years regularly, and am never disappointed. Enjoy!
