Consistently good.

I go to this restaurant at least once a year for the German food. So far, I have yet to be disappointed. The service is always good, although it seems quicker at night when its busy, if you go there for an early lunch and there aren't a lot of customers it tends to be slow.

When we walked in, there was a raucous wedding dance going on, accompanied by accordions and lederhosen. It looked fun but I nearly lost control of my bowels as I realized what kind of night we were embarking upon... Even as the wedding party mercifully fled, we continued to be regaled by the musical stylings of the gentlemen in the... More

This is a German family style restaurant. Just off the beaten path on 7th St. W. in St. Paul, MN. Very tasty, authentic German eats and beverages. This is a great place for family, friends or large groups. Friendly staff and easy to find. Meals can be served family style for sharing dishes. Yummy!

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.

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.

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
