Thank you for your review and I hope your overall experience was a good one. I'm sorry you didn't like the Schnitzel but I can assure you they are all made in house with freshly pounded pork loin. Glad you enjoyed your Sauerbraten! More

Been coming here once or twice a year for years. Will be restricting my visits to ocktoberfest or takeout in the future. I love their food but they have several waitstaff that has been working there for years and are very rude. Our Valentine's Day dinner with a group was over the top. I have never been treated so bad... More

We visited Gasthaus for Easter Brunch and found the meal as good as the sit down meals we have previously had there. Wonderful spatzel and rich spicy goulash. The buffet featured traditional Easter ham and turkey with a wide variety of other items. The wait staff was very accommodating of our party of eleven, and took good care of the... More

If you want authentic German food, this is the place to get it. Everything is amazing but if you like chicken, get the Raum Puten Schnitzel. It's wonderful. Also, if you get a chance to go to one of their brunch buffets, it's worth every penny! Just try to avoid this place during October Fest, if its your first time,... More

This cozy Bavarian restaurant near Stillwater, MN, offers a reasonably priced, all you care to eat buffet of "old world" ethnic food choices. On this mid-winter Sunday, the dining room atmosphere was bright and festive with live background accordion music. The staff was friendly and attentive. Food choices included a variety of salads, deviled eggs, a delicious smoked liver pate,... More

Very delicious meal and the wait staff was wonderful. Prices were fine, the food hot, and the beer cold. German music downstairs to usher in 2015. A very good time!

Rude hostess to my 93 year old mother, she was mad because we did not have a reservation even though there were only a handfull of people in restaurant. She totally dismissed us and greeted the family behind us. Food extremely bland and uneventful.

My family enjoyed a meal here and we were taken in by not only the very delicious food, but the amazing scenery. This restaurant is tucked into a wooded hillside - which have it an authentic German feel! I felt as though I was back in the Black Forest again!

My family and I go to the Gasthaus every year for my Dad's birthday and it's always, always good. The atmosphere is cozy and authentic and the service is always good. I have never had a bad meal here, that's for sure! Great German food!
