Very nice atmosphere, great staff, great service. If you like German food, very good. If not, you may not like the food. I have a spicier taste. I found the food to be a little bland. But, that's just me.

In Hagerstown on business and ate here for dinner with a colleague. Nice atmosphere, greeted by the polite and friendly owner. Food was flavorful and cooked to perfection. Attentive service was perfect. I will certainly return when in the area again and would highly recommend this location.

My family and I made our way to "The Stube" after exploring nearby Antietam National Battlefield. The fact that the restaurant was packed at 2 pm on a Saturday says something, it was great! We really enjoyed our meal and indulged on appetizers, entrees and dessert. You can not pass up that dessert tray! Our server was great, too. They... More

I lived in Germany from 1970-1973 and this restaurant brought back many pleasant memories. The food was typical German and the sauerbraten my wife had was excellent and debrezinerwurst was as good as I remembered eating in Oburusel. The service was timely and courteous and the price was reasonable. It has joined the Bavarian Inn in Shepherdstown VA for scratching... More

This is the place to go for good German food in and around Hagerstown. The meals are nicely flavored, seem genuinely Bavarian, and the beer selection is good, too. Service is great, as is the ambiance. Right in the heart of the downtown area of Hagerstown, with some lovely parks and walking areas around it, too.

We had stopped in here before for dessert just to check out the place and where it was located since it was Number 1 on Tripadvisor and a few people had recommended it. We decided to have dinner here one night with the entire family for a birthday. We are not really educated in German or Bavarian cuisine, but the... More

If you enjoy German food, this is the place to go if you are in the Hagerstown area. I always stop there for lunch after golf when I travel to Frederick. I love the German beer, the staff dressed as if this place was in Germany. You must try the schnitzel for desert.
