You will NEVER find food this authentic and this delicious on unless in Austria or Germany. It's a small place, reservations a must or you will wait forever, but once seated and served, you are in for a treat. There is nothing commercial about this place. It's small world and a small dining room which means every dish is truly... More

The waiter / barkeep was rude and his sense of humour was not appreciated. His attempt with friendly repartee with was borderline rude. You do not ask one guest what they want and look an another guest and when the guest you are looking at answers say " I wasn't talking to you". We almost left at that point but... More

Great German food, portion were large and tasty. On the down side the restaurant was cold and there is no parking but all in all great value and you sure don't leave hungry.

Every December we meet with close friends at Christmas Party and this year we came back to Zum Linzer after a 2-year break, during which we explored 2 other restaurants. And this comeback was a really great decision! For as low as only $20 per person for food (drinks extra) we experienced a very well organized and absolutely friendly service... More

Zum Linzer is a charming German/Austrian food restaurant lost in the middle of barren Main St East. It's a welcoming surprise for someone who likes that kind of food, and they also have traditional beers. There's a small but neat patio, and the inside is also quite inviting. The food was very good and we felt quite welcome.

It took three last minute attempts to get reservations before we realized a little planning was required if you want to eat here. Not the first place which came to mind for German food in Hamilton but only due to low profile location and lack of advertising. Why spend money to advertise when you are always busy? It certainly isn't... More

This place has so much to offer. Call ahead and make reservations. Get the fried mushrooms as an app or one of their homemade soups. Then try the country pork platter if you are coming off a hunger strike. Their schnitzel entrees are unparalleled in Hamilton. The Steak Madagascar is huge and cooked to perfection. This may be the best... More

This place is a small venue so if you are going on a busy night (Friday, Saturday) you are going to need to make a reservation. This cozy restaurant serves fantastic food such as schnitzels. It was very filling so we ended up bringing some home.
