Our recent trip to the Kitchener-Waterloo area was a trip down memory lane for me. I lived in Waterloo many years ago and the Concordia was the great place to go for German food. My husband made a reservation for us for 7 pm. It was going to be a treat to go to the Concordia again after so many... More

We went to this restaurant with a few friends. The atmosphere is very lovely. It certainly has plenty of old German charm. We found the quality of the service to be good. Our server was prompt, attentive, and offered us some great suggestions when we asked. The beer selection was a little small, but what they had on tap was... More

This Club,which is open to the public,has been in Kitchener since 1873. Anytime we are visiting relatives in the area we always plan on schnitzel at the Concordia Club. They have so many choices on their menu that it is difficult to choose. We plan on going in October to see the largest Octoberfest outside of Munich Germany. So many... More

We have been to this restaurant many times. The last time we went with our daughter, her fiancé and his parents. The food in our opinion has always been delicious, however, this time our guests just raved over the food. We have been many times for family anniversaries, birthdays, etc and have never been disappointed. The staff are very pleasant... More

We went for the Friday evening buffet again, as we had a big craving for schnitzel and sauerkraut. We enjoyed this meal the first time we came here, many months ago. This time, the schnitzel and kraut were ok. Not good, just ok. The also had pork chops and turkey sausage, which we did not like. Too dry and no... More

While in Kitchener, had a craving for good wholesome German food. Found it at The Schenke restaurant (part of the Concordia Club of Kitchener). I love to eat schnitzel and there were several choices on the menu. Decided on the chicken schnitzel with mushroom sauce with sauerkraut and home fries. Ordered their red cabbage as a side to share with... More

We went to Concordia for brunch family brunch. A child in our party of 17 has a peanut allergy so we asked to bring our own dessert (cake). It was not until we arrived that we were told that there is a cutting fee - and only when we got our bill did we realize that they charged us $27!... More

It's been one of my plans to visit the Concordia Club for several years. Finally I have done so today and now I regret having missed any previous opportunities. The food was simply unbelievable!! Being a German food lover, I had to try several dishes and everything was outstanding!! The most memorable dining experience outside if Germany!!

Finally went to The Schenke after meaning to try it for a couple of years! Atmosphere and decor were great - food was very tasty, good value. Saturday night was pretty busy (dine + dance night), so definitely make a reservation (which we did, easy to do online). They probably could have used one more server, though, just to speed... More

I often overlook the Concordia Club for lunch and/or dinner because I usually think of this place as the home of Oktoberfest. It is that but it's also a lot more than just Oktoberfest. We stopped for a buffet lunch on Wednesday and the place was nearly packed. I can understand why it's so popular. The lunch buffet is very... More
