This restaurant is a trip into Europe for guests. The decor, the staff and the food, all truly Black Forrest. Great patio in the summer. Cozy restaurant all year. Best schnitzel anywhere. Great menu selection. I always have the schnitzel burger .. Not a burger at all, just a smaller piece of schnitzel, smaller but not small at all. Meals... More

Those that want exclusive German type food won't be disappointed, others won't find to there liking as very much authentic. Friends come from Kitchener and we go there with them and enjoy for birthdays etc. Variety to choose from and good size portions and luscious desserts if you have the room left.

Went for dinner after attending the Cabaret mattinee show at Theatre Aquarius. Had to wait for an hour but it was worth the wait for the food. We had ordered the dinner for 2 and had lots to take home for lunch the next day. Would highly recommend to go.

We've been going here for 40 years and love it. Home cooked meals. The service has always been good. Get here early as its standing room only.

Great food and large portions for the price......the Best schnitzel in town! We go there all the time for special occasions with the whole family! Only downside is that they don't take reservations.

We made the mistake of going on early on a Saturday evening. They don't take reservations and there were 6 of us. But the food made the wait worthwhile. After hour and half we were able to sit in the bar section and wait for a table. The portions are large and delicious. The staff is very friendly and tries... More

Made a detour through Hamilton. I used to live there in the 60's, my first town in Canada when I immigrated. The Black Forest Inn did exist in exactly the same decor and location.....amazing nd the food still tasted just as good under 2 new ownerships! It probably could use a bit of a make over., but why change a... More

Been to this restaurant many times and have never been disappointed with the quality and quantity of the the food served. If you go, you must try the schnitzels as they are top notch.
