We went there to celebrate my wife's birthday. There were seven of us. We all enjoyed our dishes with the exception of the almond cake. The pretzel was so good, we had to order another. We got one bowl of the cheese and crab soup and were sorry we didn't have another. The cheese spatzle was good enough for a... More

Went to Old Stein Inn on my Son's recommendation. We made a reservation for 7PM. After checking in we went to the bar to enjoy a beverage. Great beer selection and super cold coming of the draft. Long story short we didn't get seated until 7:45. Another long wait for the server to show up. Ordered the onion rings to... More

WE have dined here many times in the last 10 years and always enjoyed the experience. Unfortunately our last visit was a let down. The flavor of the red cabbage was off and the usually delicious crab and cheese soup was just warm, still tasty, but is better hot. We had the Beer Flights and onion rings to add to... More

Enjoyed Oktoberfest food and drinks w/ friends in the outdoor area which was festively decorated for Oktoberfest 2014; for a second we thought we were in Germany! Great time.

In a previous review I wrote that our server disappeared for long stretches of time and after a while, there seemed to be no service at all. It definitely changed on our last visit. Our server was very attentive and we never had to wait long for anything. Don't know she was a better server than the one we had... More

Went to a birthday dinner with nine others and everyone enjoyed their meals, appetizers, desserts, and varieties of beer. The food is truly German and cooked to perfection. I had several questions about the food before I ordered. After my food came the waitress came to me to make sure that I was happy with my meal. Service was great... More

We last visited Old Stein Inn when they re-opened after a forced remodeling after a fire. The main room was so noisy at that time that you really had difficulty carrying on a conversation. We think the staff was also getting used to the new kitchen, as the taste of the food was only mediocre. We went again at the... More

Having lived in Germany for 5 years,I believe the food served in this Gasthaus "restaurant" is as close to original German fare as you can get.At least in Md. We have tried several other quote German restaurants, but they all fell short of the mark. As for Old Stein Inn, we were greeted by friendly staff, seated promptly and drink... More

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
