We drove about an hour to this restaurant for my 60th birthday. It was well worth the trip. I have to emphasize the atmosphere, the staff, the service and, of course, the food. I have eaten in some of the best German restaurants, both in Germany and in New York City. This place ranks as an equal with the bonus... More

If you're looking for real authentic German food that will rattle your taste buds, look no further than The German Restaurant in Holiday, FL on US 19. This cozy, cottage like eatery is like going back in time. The décor is authentic as are the server's outfits. We had a large group of 9 of us this past Sunday. Some... More

My husband and I went last year and really enjoyed it. We just moved into the area and we were looking forward and we were not disappointed! The food was so good, we were in heaven. We started with the Potato Leek soup, and it was one of the best soups I have had in a while. Full of flavor!... More

My dinner partner and I both ordered the same entrée. My soup was OK and his salad was nothing special. Our entrées were completely tasteless. My friend is of German ancestry and I thought he would enjoy the meal; he didn't. Service was fine; but it was institutional-tasting food. Frankly, I do not understand the good reviews. We left without... More

We enjoyed a lovely dinner at the German restaurant this weekend. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. We loved the potato soup, red cabbage and sauerbraten. Don't forget to order the Black Forest cake too! Delish!

I don't care for German food but the service was good. They were very accommodating for the large group that we had. The staff was very familiar with the menu and could comment on different foods to help with our selections.

I've been to The German Restaurant twice and have left both times stuffed and smiling. The food is excellent from the sausages to the schnitzel, the boots of beer to the black forrest cake! The decor is quaint and the staff is friendly and eager to share their knowledge of the food. A must try!

There is not one negative thing I can say about this restaurant. The food, atmosphere, staff and experience is all wonderful!!! I had a delicious German sampler last time I was there, and got to try blood sausage for the first time! I loved it! Enough for leftovers, which was a delight the next day also. I cannot wait to...

We were a party of 8 celebrating a birthday. We had reservations and were promptly seated. The wait staff was excellent and the food was delicious. The hostess (owner?) was attentive throughout our meal. She and the staff sang Happy Birthday in German to the celebrant. To go boxes were brought to us. The restaurant was very busy but not...
