A nice way to start the evening

Recently visited the Gerst Haus and the service and food was excellent. The atmosphere is very comfortable and bar area is a great place to watch a game or meet friends

Ready for something different? Especially if you are visiting Evansville, you should consider Gerst. You can decent steak houses, Chinese, Mexican or Italian food many places. Not many areas, however, have a place with excellent traditional German food. The staff will gladly help you through the schnitzel options. If those don't strike your fancy, go for the smoked pork chop...... More

This restaurant is located inside a very old hardware store with fabulous architectural details. The place is always crowded. Lots of large family groups gather here. There are many, many different beers to try, many on tap. The burgers are really good and I'm told the reubens are fantastic.

Took a friend from Indy here for dinner. We had been to October fest in Munich together, so I knew we could find the same beers here. Beer was fine, but too cold, sorry america, not all beer needs to be 33 deg. or in a frosted mug, especially in January. He was fine with his schnitzel, but it looked... More

This restaurant is an intersection between a German Beer House and a hunting lodge. There are too many tasty beers on tap to count and a great section of sausages, and other German dishes to choose from. I have eaten here many times and always enjoyed the potato pancakes, red cabbage and apple strudel desert. It's pretty much a must... More

If you're a beer lover this is the place! HUGE selection of domestic and foreign beers. Try a tasting tray. Good food with a German bent. The tenderloin sandwich is ginormous - and fantastic. Steer clear of the appetizers. The kraut balls were a huge disappointment, as was the other items on the platter. The building originally housed a local... More

Our destination was for another restaurant, which happened to be closed the first two weeks in January. The group jumped on their cell phones and found Tripadvisor. Gerst Bavarian Haus was recommended and was very close to our location. We stopped... we ate...we loved it. A total of 10 people ranging in age from 18 - late 60's ... who... More

The Gerst Haus has a wonderful beer selection and the waiter was very knowledgeable regarding what they had. The German food was rather good also. Recommend the hot German potato salad. Do not be in a hurry to get out of the restaurant as they do not rush.

Ate lunch here with a group of business associates who were from the area and recommended it. Some of the food was very good (pork tenderloin sandwich) while some was average (chili). The bar had a wide variety of beers on tap as well. Probably would go back for dinner to check out the atmosphere, but wouldn't go back strictly... More
