A definite must go place. Food is great and service as well. So much to choose from and German food is the bomb. Make sure to try the kraut balls and schnitzel. German Fries are a must.

My first and second visit was the best. But since then it's not been as good. The staff is a bit rude and the food isn't as what I used to have. Portions are small. Great building though. Great beer selection.

Really like this place, definitely not your standard chain restaurant. The menu has a great variety of food and some cool German dishes. The food is all good...not healthy, but really flavorful and good. Prices are very reasonable, beer selection is outstanding! Service was friendly. Don't miss the fried oysters. I know what you are thinking... Fried oysters in Southern... More

We love the Gerst Haus! The service is always friendly and attentive! The menu has a large selection of both German and American food. My favorite is beef stroganoff. You can eat inside or on the patio. The restaurant is in a former hardware shop. Lots of fun!

This is the best German restaurant in evansville. All the traditional German food and a large selection of draft beers. I have ate there for years and NEVER had a bad meal or service.

I have been to the Gerst Bavarian Haus several times over the past ten year, and my last visit was just as good as all of the others. The place is very comfortable, the wait-staff is very attentive and friendly, the food seems very authentic Bavarian, and the extensive beer selection is this beer drinker's dream. The folks at the... More

The Gerst Haus is an old Evansville tradition, with lots to look at in the restaurant. Features a large, draught beer selection. I do love the red cabbage side dish! However, I was disappointed in my food selection, possibly because I was not able to spend a lot of time studying the menu due to a very chatty dinner companion.... More

Went yesterday at lunch, Saturday. They were not busy. Got Ruben and it was good as usual, but German fries. It w as if they had just cut up a potato and fried it. No onion, no taste. The cook needs to go up to Hilltop and take lessons. Had them in the past and they were good, not this... More

My wife split an order of sauerbraten as the portion was too big for one, especially after an appetizer of kraut balls. Both were excellent! The choices of beer are extensive, but I love their frosty fishbowls of Gerst dark beer. I try not to miss the Friday clam chowder or the Sunday Bloody Mary Special.
