I have been going to this restaurant for years and am totally disgusted in how they treat you now. I guess business is very good as they don't care if you stay or walk back out the door. Had planned a group of 15 people for dinner last night. I arrived at 4:30 to hopefully secure a table for 5... More

We went for dinner last night and there were 6 of us. They do not take reservations so we had to wait for a table for about 1/2 hour, which was ok. We had drinks in the waiting area and the waitress in there was very friendly and funny. The time passed quickly. They initially said they didn't have a... More

Always wanted to try a german place out and this did not disappoint. Big portions and everything was very good. I'd go early as it does get quite busy but well worth the wait.

German styled restaurant with numerous types of schnitzel. Mmmm so good. Large portions, friendly portions. Very popular so you may have to wait in the smaller bar area. Can't say enough good things about this place

Bring your appetite when you visit the Black Forest Inn because the servings are very generous. The staff are friendly and wear the traditional costumes so it makes for a fun night out and the decor is charming.

One of the greatest things about this place is that whenever you go back, you know exactly what you're going to get. We ate out on the patio, and our server was friendly and nice. The place is always welcoming and the price is great. So tasty! We're not from Hamilton, but we drive about a half hour to go!

Have been going since it opened in 1968, food is consistently always great, portion sizes have not change. Good home style German food.

One of our favourite restaurants in Hamilton. Staff is very friendly, restaurant is clean and food is absolutely delicious, decently priced for the large portion you get. The desserts are finger licking good!

Go there 3x a month; always good service and the food is always fresh and well cooked. Only 1 complaint in 12 years - and they fixed it - recommend it fully. R. Braun, Dundas ON (some days specials, always fresh and wunderbar)
