Excellent food. Excellent service. Great beers. Nice people. A bit pricey. They handled our party of 15 without missing a beat.

Reputed to be the best authentic German restaurant in the area, my expectations were high. The decor is authentic, and the list of German beeers and wines were great. As I turned my attention to the menu, I was pleased to see sauerbraten shortribs, red cabbage and spaetzle. But the excitement ended there. I missed the tangy sweet and sour... More

Old Stein Inn is awesome. When it burned down a few years ago, we thought all was lost, but they rebuilt it now even better. Food is great, service is awesome. As close to authentic German as it gets.

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
