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

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
