Lehner's Wirthaus is always nice to visit, if you go in the summer or winter, the restaurants has always a unique atmosphere. German cuisine starts at flammkuchen in different flavors, nice as a starter to share with the whole table. Goes fast and stops your first hunger. Than it comes to taste, what do you like from a pfanne to... More

When you stroll through downtown Karlsruhe, you will find any kind of restaurant, but few with really good food, and even fewer German restaurants. Many unfortunately went the fast food way. Lehner's Wirtshaus is different: Excellent local beer, superb German food, and affordable. In good weather I only can recommend to sit outside and enjoy one of the warmest cities... More

Excellent German food and beer at moderate prices. The English menu doesn't include everything on the German menu or the daily specials but the waiters are happy to assist. If a waiter doesn't speak English he/she will Sel assistance from a colleague. I visited twice during my October 20&13 brief visit o Karlsruhe. I noticed blankets were provided for and... More

We went there on a Sunday night and there were not many people. However, I know that during some nights it gets really packed in there. Service was great, food was also good. Price for the food i think is ok, but beer is really expensive.

After sampling some truly terrible food in Karlsruhe, we were relieved and overjoyed with our experience here. Friendly wait staff and a simple selection of hearty European and German foods. I opted for the traditional Flamkuchen - onions, sour cream and bacon on a crispy base and my partner had pork medallions with spatzle - we sighed with joy at... More

Food OK, though helpings not very large (my Bavarian host was disappointed). Staff very friendly, and English menus available. Beer was also decent.

We were lucky enough to visit Karlsruhe during the Badische white asparagus season, and we enjoyed several good, traditional German meals that featured this local delicacy. One of those was at Lehner's. The experience was made even nicer because we were able to enjoy our meal in their outdoor seating area on a beautiful spring evening. Our server was great,... More

I have been here a couple times with a large group (we had the entire restaurant). The service is excellent. The food is average. There are somethings that are better than others. Desserts are always good as is the fish. I think this is probably better as a bar (amazing selection if liquor) where you can get solid food.
