One of the big surprises in downtown Hagerstown MD: An absolutely fantastic, totally authentic, zero-kitsch German restaurant, complete with a staid proprietor to greet you at the door, and lovely, Dirndl-clad waitresses to serve your thoroughly delightful meal. We couldn't decide among the varied offerings, so we ordered the Combination Platter for 2, which had a great selection of classic... More

If your looking for a great dinning experience then this is it, great German style food at a fare price. Nice atmosphere, very helpful and friendly staff. We travel all over the world and this is one of the best meals for the money we have ever had. When in the area we will dine here again.

This restaurant in Hagerstown's historic downtown has an abundant supply of traditional Bavarian cuisine options including appetizers, soups, entrees, beers, wines, and desserts. The decor is very fitting of a traditional German tap room and biergarten. All the wait staff even wear traditional and authentic German clothing as well. More importantly though, the wait staff were attentive and pleasant and... More

We went on a Sunday afternoon with a party of five. Being unable to decide on the many interesting menu offerings we opted for the buffet so we could sample many of them. It was a wonderful choice. Every entree was excellent, flavorful and tender. From the soup to the dessert we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The atmosphere is quaint and... More

Excellent authentic Bavarian cuisine. This is my favorite restaurant on the east coast. When passing through Hagerstown, make sure you stop for lunch or dinner. You won't regret it.

We have, for several years, traveled 50 miles twice a year to celebrate birthdays at this "taste of Bavaria," where we spent eight years total from the 1970s through the 1990s. The Schmankerl Stube prepares the closest you can get to a real Wienerschnitzel this side of Garmisch-Partenkirchen, not to mention the superb Spätzle (egg noodles) and other dishes. The... More

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,...
