The schnitzel was very dry, the mashed potatoes were from a box and the desserts were mostly from McCann, the rice pudding was... read more

Schnitzel on a bun better and bigger at the Kriskringle Market than at Concordia served on a plate. Service slow and part of order forgotten and brought toward end of the meal. There is a serious lacking in making a great German gravey to go with schnitzel, a key component for great schnitzel, along with thiness and tenderness. Great beer... More

By far the best chicken fingers I've had anywhere!!! If someone in your group isn't fond of Schnitzel, Saurbraten, Sausage, or other typical German food, have no fear, there are other items on the menu too!

Attended a Wed night buffet at Concordia Club. Definitely value for the dollar (could say the same thing about an amazing Sunday Brunch as couple months ago- that's what impressed a return visit). We were there the day before Octoberfest started so the place was decorated and ready: but, the chefs weren't distracted with anticipation. They did an awesome job... More

I have lived in K-W for 15 years and am ashamed to admit that I have never dined at the Concordia Club....until tonight. I felt like I was magically transported to Germany, what with the table conversation all around us in Deutsch, the waitress dressed in a dirndl, and the Bavarian-looking rough-cut dining chairs. All that was missing was the... More

We came here as a group of 10, following a meeting, having reserved ahead. Our large circular table, partially bench-seating, was ready, and water pitchers, glasses, and cutlery were already on the table. We arrived in groups of one or two or three, and the very friendly waitress always appeared within a minute of newcomers, to take beverage orders. A... More

We enjoyed all aspects of the Concordia Club Schenke Restaurant. The atmosphere was lovely with beautiful murals, large wooden beams and a quiet ambiance. The food looked fantastic and was delicious and hot. Our server was dressed in a dirndl(traditional German Costume) and had a pleasant demeanor. Overall a fantastic experience.
