Wonderful food and a festive atmosphere. The owner never fails to stop at tables to greet and welcome his customers. You will not regret dining here. Highly recommended.

My wife and I went to the Schmankerl Stube last night to celebrate our anniversary. This was not our first visit and it certainly won't be our last. As usual, we were greeted warmly by Charlie after walking in. We decided to sit outside in the beer garden to enjoy the wonderful weather. We were greeted next by our waitress.... More

BEST. GERMAN. FOOD. This is a must-go place. We love the decor, the service, but most especially the food. There are just not enough adjectives to describe how delicious it all is (as we work our way around the menu) every single time. It has become a destination restaurant as we now find ourselves planning small vacations around the area... More

I found this wonderful spot by using this website. The reviews were spot on and I was very impressed with the authentic German feel of this restaurant. There were no complaints among our group of 7 and everyone was very please with their dishes. The food was authentic, well prepared, and tasted fantastic. I believe, if you have German ancestors,...

The food is excellent! (Much better than The Bavarian Inn in nearby Shepherdstown, WV.) The dinner menu is a bit pricey, but the lunch menu has some good values. If the weather is good, the outdoor patio is especially nice now that the construction of the library across the street is completed and the noise has abated.

Its open on Sunday (Hard to find in Hagerstown). Great for meat eaters, terrible for vegetarians. Excellent desserts. A bit pricey, but if you like what is on the Sunday buffet that is a good value.. Full bar.

The food all over is average. Nothing really I don't prepare myself. But what is very surprising is that you have to pay 6 Dollars for a slice of cake. Especially the black forest cake is so thin sliced that it has to lay down on the plate. I guess the owner gets at least 36 slices out of one... More

We were traveling from Alabama to New York and stopped here for the night. We checked TripAdvisor for a place to eat lunch since we knew nothing about this area and this place was #1. We found the address and were impressed with the patio and the beautiful red geraniums. We decided to eat inside since it was a warm... More

We took a Harley ride to Hagerstown on the 4th of July because it was a beautiful day in Maryland, which we don't often have during our humid summers. Most of the restaurants in mid-town were closed for the holiday but this restaurant was open. We sat in the back beer garden and got wonderfully attentive service from our server,... More

Wow! The quantity of food on our dinner plates was more than ample and absolutely wonderful! My friend and I both ordered the cheese soup and the Ulmer Metzger Platte. The cheese soup was delicious - very flavorful with croutons. The platter was authentic German and was a wonderful reminder of a recent trip to Germany. After reviewing the website... More
