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

This restaurant offers the best German food i have had in the U.S. (I am originally from Germany). I can confirm the many previous reviews about the quality of food and staff - and as well the prices, which are not at the low end ... But then you have to consider the quality you are getting! We are planning... More

It is a little bit of Germany on a side street in Hagerstown. Because of wider sidewalks it is not easy to find a parking place but we did at 4:30 on a Sunday afternoon. If it had not been hot, the sidewalk café would have been very inviting. European style chairs behind boxes of flowers under an awning could... More

My husband and I were going to be in this area and just for grins, I checked 'TripAdvisor' for a restaurant; this one came up and am I glad it did! We had a combination dinner for two, with a bit of everything on it. It reminded me of my trip to Germany a couple years ago! The food is... More

The food is very good, and the atmosphere is truly Bavarian. The food is a little pricey so ask for a menu before you decide to eat there.

While in Hagerstown recently, we decided to try Schmankerl Stube to celebrate a family event and we were not disappointed. The service, atmosphere, food and the beer and were all terrific and it made me want to visit Germany, something I never wished for before! Start with the beer. They have about 30 imported German beers by the bottle and... More
