We have been here several times in the last year for lunch and each time we have had great traditional German food (schnitzel, bratwurst, spatzel, red cabbage etc) and wonderful German beer. We got to eat outside this last time in the Beer Garden/ Bier Garten and on beautiful afternoon. The staff was helpful and meals (our group was 10)... More

This is my kind of place, 2 pages of food and 3 pages of beer and wine. Enjoy your bratwurst and sauerkraut out side on the back patio and be entertained with October fest music. The service and food is fantastic and so is the entertainment. Make your reservation for a perfect table out back, weather permitting. The inside is... More

...the restaurant got busy. We had a mid-afternoon reservation and when we got there, we were one of the only parties there. However, as the evening went on and more people showed up, service got increasingly worse to the point of eventually being non-existent. Too many people and not nearly enough wait staff to take care of them. However, we... More

Friends in the Edgewater area recommended the restaurant, and we have really enjoyed the food and the outdoor beer garden each visit (and getting more frequent!). First time? Try the beer flights (light and dark) as they give you a good variety of what's offered. We have tried different German dishes each time in and have not been disappointed. Last... More

After a devastating fire, it took a very long time for the Old Stein to reopen, but it was worth the wait. The owners took a good but dated and drab German restaurant and made into a place with a terrific outside beer garden, much improved parking and a great new interior. As the restaurant is over twenty miles from... More

We live nearby, so this place was so convenient and so fun to go to. Unfortunately, our meals were just never executed well both pre and post fire. I think, however, the Stein is redeeming itself, at least in our eyes. The trick, we found, was knowing what to order, and exploring more of their menu. Living in Germany, my... More

Fried pickles to start. Great beer selection. Served with red cabbage a sour craute. German chocolate brownie for desert. Sat outside and enjoyed the music.

It was a very nice atmosphere but we discovered we don't love German food. What we had was good just weren't a lot of choices we loved. No reason to mark the restaurant down because we didn't do our research. I will say for two of us it was about 100.00 and I didn't drink. Just recommend you check the... More

So this place took me back to Bavaria 1985-88. They had food I grew up eating. I rediscovered favorites I have not had in decades. The beer was awesome. Some of the finest brews were on tap (not just German, there were some Belgian selections as well) as well as other bottled fare. The food was as authentic as I... More

Outstanding. Having visited Germany many times, this is hands down one of the best German meals I've ever had, especially at home in the US. Great atmosphere, great staff, and great food! I highly recommend the pretzel, the landjaeger, and the short rib! So good. Will definitely be back!
