Good Old Place

No, it is not the very traditional, dark and conservative "Goldenes Kreuz" it was before. More modern, lighter food, but the typical Badenian dishes, as served in a Brew House restaurant. The quality is excellent, service very good, and prices reasonable. We enjoyed a dinner with watching a... read more

A nice beer house restaurant that gets a bit too noisy when full. Friendly and efficient staff. At a quarter to 10 pm they had run out of two of their "Wirtshaus-Klassiker" (the Schweinshaxe and the Schweinekrustenbraten) so we took the "grosse Wirtshaus-Schnitzel" and "Lehner's Rosti Burger". Both were ok and came with good homemade fries. All correctly priced. A... More

Nice place to spend an evening with friends, also suitable for larger groups as they have a lot of large tables. Food is decent and they serve good cocktails. But I've to say I didn't like the red wine I tasted... Not a location to go if you lock for a romantic dinner with a date, but as said great... More

The price was OK, around 17 euros, but the Schweinhaxe was spectacular! Bier is a little bit overpriced on that local

Service a little slow, but good atmosphere, good beer, and the Flamenkuchen was great, so didn't mind a little slowness to enjoy the surroundings.

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
