I was almost alone in the restaurant on a chilly evening, but staff were attentive. I ordered the special German combination meal, which was huge--schnitzel, rouladen, braised cabbage, sausage and more, plus the delicious deep-fried biscuits with apple butter AND a small salad bar. Needless to say, I was much too full for dessert, and that's a rarity. Everything tasted... More

Traveled about 30 miles to get away from the Franchise restaurants. The food was very good and plentiful. We visited on a Friday which featured live soft music. Very comfortable. I think some other reviews of smoke pertained to many years ago.

One of my daughters bought me a gift certificate to the Sherman House in Batesville, IN. When we arrived, we were greeted promptly and courteously, however it felt as if we had gone back in time. I don't think the decor has changed in the last 40 years. I ordered the prime rib which was very good, and my wife... More

My husband had a meeting in Batesville, and some years ago we stayed at the Sherman House. I called and made reservations for him to stay two nights assuming the rooms were still nice. He said his room was terrible - had chipped paint and badly in need of a thorough update. The bathroom was worse than the sleeping area.... More

We were searching for a German restaurant and found it here !! Starts with buffet salad bar, then assortment of sausages and then Apple Strudel. PERFECT !! Waitress could have been a little more enthusiastic since we were so happy on vacation.

This is an old hotel and restaurant. The hotel is very interesting. They have much of the historical information available. They have a german restaurant on site that is good but a bit pricey for the location.

We have stopped here before when traveling through the area and enjoyed it very much. This time, however, we stopped for a late lunch and were disappointed with our food. As usual, the restaurant sparkled and the service was good. We both had the French onion soup which had little flavor and large pieces of onion which had not been... More

We went this evening for dinner with friends. They first serve you with little pastry donut type with fresh homemade applebutter for dipping. Oh my goodness they are wonderful. We started with the appetizer platter that had potato pancakes, fried pickles and sauerkraut balls. That was amazing. The best sauerkraut balls ever. I ordered the beer battered cod sandwich with...
