Good food, but service could be better

Your salad and grilled chicken sandwich was great, but you could do much better on your service. There is one server at lunch time for the whole restaurant, and she has to run around, which she is not doing very well. Our friends had a Veg wrap and a salmon sandwich, which they also liked, but had... read more

Went here for a quick bite to eat with a whole bunch of family. We came in without a reservation there is 11 of us. And they found space for us and were very accommodating. Everyone seemed to enjoy their food and I found a bourbon that I really like. I would go again

Rathskeller has a cozy pub vibe with an active bar scene. I am going to pick up their Nachos platter to go tonight to bring to a friend's house as part of our Cinco de Mayo night. It occurred to me that I go there a couple of times a month, at least, to meet friends or my daughter. They... More

Traveling on business and wanted something close to our hotel. Came across this place and loved it. Interesting, yet simple menu. Good spirits, great food, great $$.

The place is small but not overcrowded. There are booths and a nice place to meet friends for dinner or a snack. The restaurant also has a lovely bar.

For years we didn't come to the Rathskeller. It's location is sort of tucked away, and the menu reads as somewhat pedestrian; however we've been going much more often lately, and it's actually quite special. The environment is pleasing, the staff is friendly, and the food is consistently good. The burgers are top-notch, but it's also the kind of place... More

Girlfriend and I went here one night. Absolutely loved it from the moment we walked in. Greeted and seated right away, small, quaint place perfect for a couple date night. I had the salmon burger and she ordered the veggie burger. Both dishes were delicious. We will return!

If you are looking for something out of the ordinary, this is the place to eat. Great gourmet food and costs comparable to other fine restaurants.

It was good night, we could find a place to eat, so we googled Rathskeller. We were a little nervous when we approached, but the seating and staff were great. The menu was good, and the red wine was fine. Food was execellent. I would eat here again and recommend it.
