Yum! Best German pretzels in town!

This my favorite German Food restaurant in the Twin Cities. The fare is excellent most of the time. The pretzels are THE BEST. I am also very partial to the weisswurst. It's a little loud if the place is filled up, but so worth it.

My husband and I visited the Glockenspiel restaurant this afternoon for lunch. We always frequent our favorite restaurant in another city-but today, we were looking to try someplace new. The Glockenspiel is in the heart of downtown St. Paul and is easy to find. Just inside the entrance is a cozy little bar with all the ambience of a true... More

Went here for lunch and had the Hungarian paprika chicken with fries. It comes on a pretzel bun with peper jack cheese. The chicken was awesome. I will be eating it again when I go back. Fries were also good. The restaurant looks German in every way.

Our family loves German food and so we gave the historic restaurant a try. The food was good, the waitress was very attentive and all-in-all a good experience. It was Mother's Day, but not too busy for dinner. The atmosphere is probably awesome during October.

The food was good, but didn't stand out. we were hoping for something delicious, but left feeling we should have went to our usual german place in minneapolis. I think we'll try again when it's not so near closing time for the kitchen.

The Glockenspiel's menu advertises Fish all you can eat for $14.95; the cod was heavily battered in a beer batter,and the pieces were cut in small quarters. Our fish was served with a 2oz plastic cup of tasteless coleslaw, and cold limp french fries. We asked our server for more fish for the three of us and 2 pieces were... More

My wife and I went here for my birthday. Thankfully we were warned to check what was going on since it was during the St. Paul Winter Carnival. The bar up front was very busy and noisy. With the hard wood floors and plaster wall the sounded carried throughout the restaurant. We arrived early (4:30 pm) thankfully, by 5 the... More

This is some of the best German food outside of Germany I've ever had. Just wish they'd bring back the ribs with sauerkraut which was to die for!!

My favorite is the Hungarian chicken sandwich. Anything ending in "schnitzel" is a treat, especially the jaegerschnitzel with the mushroom cream sauce. Robust selection of imported beers on tap or bottled! Dopplebock being my favorite.
