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!

We eat here 2-3 times a month and always enjoy it. There is a great beer garden, with a great selection of beer, including a rotating 10 th tap . We've had about everything on the menu. Favorites include: pork shank - the gravy is awesome over the spaetzle. Pork schnitzel. Cheese and crab soup Wurst and cheese plate Onion... More

I've been going to Old Stein for years. I highly recommend going there for authentic German food. Best place in the area, well the only place, so it's a bonus that it's GREAT good!

I went here with a friend and the hostess who seemed ditzy took 10 minutes to seat us when several tables were open and clean there was not many people there due to the weather and time, it was winter and she asked if we wanted to sit outside. The waiter was slow and not attentive and he only had... More

I have eaten at the Old Stein on several occassions and seems each time is different. First time was great, then poor, then so so! Won't return!
