The restaurant not only has great food but also one of the best beer selections in the area!. The Ruben sandwich is always excellent. The fried oysters are fresh and cooked just right.

Consistent, well cooked, well flavored meals. Had smoked mett ring, very tasty. Sides are very good and varied but should be more generous given the cost of entrees. Sauerkraut and red cabbage are very good. Beer selection is top notch. Great service at the bar.

I have been to Gerst House many times, and I would describe myself as "moderately satisfied" when I typically leave. The building is historic and beautiful, and it's in a really fun part of town. Despite the rich German heritage in Evansville, there are very few places to get German food and beer. Gerst house is one of those places,... More

Several times this summer I have met my son for dinner over at the Gerst House. We love all the great foreign and craft beers they have on tap but I must say I really thoroughly enjoy their American food menu even though I'm not a big eater of German fare like my son is. The Gerst House is one... More

Admittedly, I do have a weakness for German food. That being said, Gerst Haus is the real deal. They carry a wide array of both German and American classics. Their beer list is extensive and rotates. The location is in an old building that has been refurbished without losing it's classic charm. All around, the Gerst Haus is one of... More

OK! This is some of the best German food anywhere. We have to go here any time we travel to Evansville. German food is difficult to pull off, and it has been difficult to find places that can! This is for sure one of those places! Sauerbraten, Spaetzle, Red Cabbage, Sauerkraut, German Potato Salad, Schnitzel, many perfect Sausages and BEERS!... More

My first trip to the Gerst house was very enjoyable. My husband has eaten there many times, and I wanted to try it. Definitely worth a visit if you enjoy traditional German food. The menu has many options, including non German items. Our server was very helpful with menu selections and beer choices. The Kraut balls are excellent, huge selection... More

I have went to Gerst Haus many times and I am never disappointed. From the Rueben sandwich to the red cabbage, everything is great.

Sightseeing in Evansville we happened upon the Gerst restaurant. My friend who was with me was born in Evansville and remembers the building as where his grandfather bought chicken feed. What is especially nice is they have preserved the wonderful old architecture of the building inside and out. Good German food with an extensive array of beers on tap (49)... More
