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.

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.

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
