traveled from OK with a stop in Asheville for Black Forest

Great food as expected but service was alittle slow especially for 5:30. They were not busy but were setting up for a large group in the back. There was one questionable thing. I asked about a glass on wine that I had not had before so she brought me a 'taste' first. It was delicious. I ordered a... read more

Back home in Bellefonte, the historic hotel that housed the county's only German restaurant burned to the ground. Even though the owners opened a new restaurant, it wasn't a German one, and we dearly missed the German food. We decided to try the Black Forest, and we were not disappointed. I had the Rahm Schnitzel and my husband had the... More

Great German food. The entrees came with 4 sides - sauerkraut (amazing!), red cabbage, German potato salad and spaetzle. The Black Forest Cake was very good.

I have tried at least 4 dishes and all have been of high quality. the sausage plate, schnitzel, Reuben sandwich, and sauerbraten. the red cabbage is flavored mildly and not over cooked. the spätzle had just a hint of nutmeg, perfect. the salads are also good. service has always been professional and attentive. appropriate beer selection too. the included bread...

met some friends who were traveling through Ashville, NC, so we chose this place to meet. When entering you get that stale tavern smell mixed with sauerkraut, but after all it is a German restaurant..This property could use a good renovation. Food was excellent, on the pricey side, but again where else are you going to find authentic German food..

My husband and I went for dinner on a Saturday night, and previously made 7:00 pm reservations. Arrive at 7 pm and was seated immediately. After about 3-5 minutes, the hostess that seated us came back and asked us what we wanted to drink. She left with the order and never came back. After sitting there for almost 15 minutes... More
