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.

Went here with the family, the food was excellent with many menu choices and is very family friendly. I would recommend this place to anyone who is looking for an out of the way spot to enjoy a fine meal and authentic experience.

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!

We stopped in for dinner and brought my German in-laws. The server was friendly, and dressed in German garb. She brought hot rolls, and more when we asked for more. They have an OK selection of German beers on tap. The food was ok. My father in law said he didn't like it because it wasn't like his mom's cooking.... More

My first visit to Gasthaus Bavarian Hunter was with two Germans who like real German food and this restaurant was a big hit. We all had some form of meat with dumplings and cabbage and had a lot to take home because the portions are very large. We asked for an Oktoberfest beer and I wish I would have asked... More

The day was beautiful so my husband and I took off after work to check out the leaves. The drive to the Gausthaus was brilliant with color. When we arrived the place was hopping but we were seated rather quickly. One of their waitresses had called in sick and everyone was going above and beyond to make the customers dinners... More

I have never been to Germany, so I can't say if this is authentic or not. Gasthaus is tucked away: bucolic, yes. Hard to find in the dark, yes. View of rolling land, yes.... from about 3 tables. Beer, yes! Some of us shared the 12 glass sampler--it was generous. The Oktoberfest beer was good. The menu is all about... More

I have been going to their Oktoberfest for over 10 years and always have had a great time. We stopped once in between our wedding ceremony and reception and got amazing service considering we had such a big group. Their brunches are amazing too but go with an empty tummy!

We had been here 3 or 4 yrs ago in early spring and enjoyed it, so being in Stillwater this weekend thought we would go again. Note to self, in summer make reservations. We got a small table in the bar area and it was the last place they had available tonight. The outside deck was overflowing, and the inside... More
