Couldn't wait to try their new Hendersonville,NC location!

All the classics that you've come to expect from a fine German restaurant are now available in Hendersonville, NC. 1/2 block off Main Street, in a quaint, two-story setting with lots of old wood and stained glass. My "go-to" favorite here is the veal Jaegerschnitzel with chef made spaetzle and... read more

There was a traffic wreck so it was hard to get there other than that the sample platter was what I like because no one in my family will cook krout.

She looks a little past her prime, but the food and service was superb! The server was knowledgeable and had just the right level of interaction. I despise it when the waitstaff is trained to be my friend. The spaetzle was perfect - that's the litmus test! The selection of beers is terrific, and again, our waiter was quite versed... More

Enjoyed this restaurant very much. We were from out of town and drove passed during our vacation and put it on the "list" to do before we left Asheville. The staff was very courteous and they even brought a carafe of diet coke .. so they scored big on that. They serve German food and Italian -- we picked Italian... More

My wife and I had dinner with a friend two days ago. Excellent choices of German beers and various sizes. My wife and I shared one dinner, our friend put half of his dinner in a carry-out box. Good sized portions so no one went hungry. Prices range from $13 to $25. I think ours was $21. Food was excellent.... More

We were a party of 5 and showed up for a late lunch. I had read previous reviews and expected a lot. The food is very good but the portions are a bit small for me, especially considering the prices. I ordered the sauerbraten from the lunch menu and was served about 3 ounces of sliced beef with 2 small... More

We had a celebration dinner with family on a Friday evening. The restaurant was not very busy, so our party of six was seated promptly. Our party ordered a wide variety from schnitzel, knack wurst, Reuben sandwich, steak and I ordered the grilled seafood trio. The menu here has evolved nicely over the years and offers quite a variety of... More

We had a group of about 20 for dinner on a Saturday night at the Black Forest. We were seated in a private rooms and given a choice of a half dozen dishes -- a German sampler, a schnitzel plate, an Italian plate, seafood and a couple of others. Overall, the group dinner went well, with good, timely and friendly... More
