Usually a restaurant meal is a mild variant of the-same-old-thing, sometimes it's just awful, easily bettered by cooking for yourself at home, but every once in a while, you stumble into a place that's just great....And one such place is The German Restaurant, on US Route 19, Holiday, Florida, on the East side of the road, a bit South of...

As a new resident of Tampa and a former soldier who loved being stationed in Germany, I sought out a German restaurant with authentic German food. After my wife and I visited a few restaurants we had discovered in advertisements -- and been disappointed by each -- we consulted an old friend of German descent who lives in the area.... More

My wife and I went with 2 friends to The German Restaurant a couple of days ago and ordered several of the earlybird special dinners. The waitress was very sweet and efficient and the German beer was cold and delicious. Two of us started with the soup of the day which was just delicious while the others had a house... More

We ate here out last night. We had a choice of a couple places and decided this one would be the most "different". We chose correctly! We were greeting promptly and warmly. Very attentive waitstaff. Free bread and butter while you wait. Everything was tasty and fresh!. My husband couldn't even finish his meal it was so big! I did... More

Stop in for dinner on a recent trip to the Tampa area. This is a real treat for lovers of german cuisine. As it was Father's Day, reservations were a must. Arrived a little early for our 6:45pm time and were seated promptly. Wait staff were friendly and attentive. Food was fantastic. Our fare of a party of five included... More

Wonderful friendly staff, amazing food, loved the nice touches like the variety of adorable salt & pepper shakers, to the photos, steins and live music. Our first time here, we will be back. Make reservations, we almost did not get in because of the popularity, quality and live music ~ don't miss this little gem!

Fantastic food and service. Stopped here on the way back from a festival and was pleasantly surprised. The food was definitely home made to order. We've eaten at many European restaurants and this was the best. The flavor and preparation was fantastic. The service was attentive without being bothersome. Definitely going back.

My family was visiting and we all have lived in Germany previously. Decided to try this restaurant after seeing it for many years. Wish we would have tried it sooner. Was very good. Pretty authentic. Some changes to better suit Americans but overall very authentic. Actually brought back many memories and actually felt like we were back in Germany at... More

We visited friends in Florida who took us to the German Restaurant. The food was awesome, perhaps the best German food I ever had outside of Germany. and since I'm honest I had considerably worse food in Germany. No the food was delicious, the beer well tempered and the service was great. I highly recommend this excellent Restaurant to everybody... More
