Nice, family-friendly

At first glance this place looks like a place that you would never want to eat. A few things are wrong with the place, cosmetically like blown light bulbs but the food and friendly staff make up for it. You ever want to visit Germany?

Good prices; great beer and wine selections; delicious, hearty foods; clean, comfortable atmosphere; with friendly service. There are other Getman restaurants in town, but this one is the best. Our first visit as a family was to celebrate a 21st birthday...and beer and food sampling. The atmosphere is couples, family, and kid friendly, very clean, with terrific service. The food... More

Jager schnitzel, red cabbage potato dumplings and beer with a little music to boost the atmosphere. This place has been featured on Vox and it's well deserving of a 5 star review.

Ugh. Why Huntsville with its rich German heritage cannot have a decent German restaurant is beyond me. I ordered the Goulash and got keef bits in cornstarch/canned brown gravy poured over goopy noodles. Really? My dog eats better than that. My friend had schnitzel and said it was a chicken fried steak. Another friend ordered straight American and it was... More

Many of my friends told me about the Schnitzel Ranch, finally I paid them a visit and the food was great. Only one negative was the service was slow (getting the check).

I absolutely LOVE German food and am lucky to have several in the Huntsville area. This one would be at the bottom of the list. I should have figured something was amiss when I went in for lunch around noon on a Tuesday and only four others were in the restaurant. Service was excellent (3 tables with a total of... More
