Dinner German cuisine

Went for dinner knowing nothing about their menu. Met the owner and fell in love with her accent. Finding out that everything is made from scratch, which was. Most delicious meal I've had in ages. Potato cakes were a perfect way to start the meal. Followed up with beef kraut and taters. With... read more

How have I been missing this place for years? My bad. It's SO HARD to find any German food any more, much less outstanding German fare. Thankfully my neighbor tuned me in. I had a pretty marginal experience in another German restaurant recently, and it left a bad taste in my mouth (pun intended) -- I had to get it... More

Duesenberg's is a tiny little breakfast place located just off the main drag in Catonsville. Their menu is really interesting, with many of the old standards, but clearly specializing in Eggs Benedict and a few others. I was impressed with the "Try This Breakfast" which had many non-traditional selections (at least for this area.) My catfish with eggs was great.... More

The daytime American cafe has amazing, incredibly thick, & tasty sandwiches. The evening German restaurant is 5 diamond, gold star "real" German food. Button bursting, darn good food!

We had an excellent German meal here on a Friday night recently. Everything was delicious! The puffer (potato pancakes) were really good and the schnitzel and sauerbraten, too. A lot of thought and energy obviously goes into the food preparation. It is authentic German cooking. A special note goes to the rotkohl which was not too sweet and full of... More

Very nice food. Seafood club is outstanding with the exact right blend of OLD Bay for my taste. Fries are warn and crispy - just thew way I like them. The seating is tight and you are on top of everyone when seated, waiting or walking through the restaurant. Very friendly staff. One of the few places in Catonsville that... More

The food was authentic the owner is from Bavaria and does all the cooking and greets every customer to see how they are doing and then again how the meal was. A place not to be missed

With good friends, we visited this quaint local restaurant in the heart of Catonsville. At first glance, the menu appeared a bit pricey for a sandwich meal, but when the 3 inch hot corned beef entree arrived with old fashioned potato chips and kosher pickle arrived I understood why it was not. The lean corned beef was delicious and overwhelming.... More

We have been going to Duesenbergs for years now and this is one place I do not hesitate to send friends to. They are consistent with their menu items. The staff and service is great. We also have used Duesenberg's to cater our club parties and have never had an issue. Our members rave about them for days afterwards. One... More
