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.

It's always a great night out! Really good, attentive service that's not stuffy. Excellent beer selection on tap and truly authentic German food in downtown Hagerstown! Treat yourself to a nice meal with European style service and quality cuisine.

My family and I were passing through town on our way to visit the Antietam battlefield and decided to stop here since we hadn't had German food in some time. Having been stationed in Germany for three years, my wife and I were interested to see how authentic the food was. Although the atmosphere was very nice, the food was... More

Traveling is all about trying new things and new places. On a Sunday night in December, while in Hagerstown to visit Antietam Battlefield, I attempted to get a dinner reservation here only to be told it would be way late in the evening and way beyond normal dinner hours, on a Sunday night, no less, before we could be seated....

I used to work here as a waiter 20+ years ago, then moved out of the area. I recently came back and decided to have dinner here one evening. I was thoroughly impressed, the food was much better than I remembered. The chefs have changed, but Charlie Sekula the owner has kept the atmosphere and food fantastic. I had their... More

My wife and I were on a short road trip the other week and decided to stop in Hagerstown for lunch. Driving around town, there didn't seem to be many appetizing options. We weren't necessarily looking for German food, but Schmankerl Stube seemed like the most interesting place to eat that was open on a Saturday afternoon in the historic... More
