Authentic German food

Genuine, authentic German food. Dumplings, knockwurst, and bratwurst are great! Our favorite time to go is during Oktoberfest. We've always had great service.

The experience at Gasthaus Bavarian Hunter is consistently fantastic! Unlike many knock-off, so-called German restaurants, this one is the real deal. The outdoor patio provides a Bavarian-like, tranquil view of the growing hops plants and tall pine trees. Occasionally an accordion player in lederhosen roams around playing polkas. The inside dining areas and bar are tastefully decorated with incredible old... More

One of the best German restaurants I've been to anywhere including Germany. Great German beer selection, wonderful food, an outdoor deck and a beer garden complete with hops. Terrific place!

I have been going there for over 30 years. They have a great Menu for Lunch and Dinner - I have never found one that wasn't good. They have more German Beers to offer guests than majority of German restaurants - 12 Draft Beers plus bottles of non-alcoholic beer. I have been to many German restaurants around the country but...

We just finished our meal and I have to say I expected better. The schnitzels must have been made from frozen. . made from frozen. The sauerbraten and red cabbage were good, so go for those.

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
