I have always heard that this place had great German food and excellent Prime Rib. My wife was looking forward to Viener Schnitzel... They don't serve it..so she asked for the pork version with an egg on top..the cook wouldn't do it, even though that's the authentic version of the dish. So she... read more

this place does not look like much from the outside, but the friendly service, skilled chef and bartender and large portions will bring you back. I had the crab stuffed flounder and it was wonderful (took half home); my husband had the prime rib and this is the first time he took home extras. PORTIONS ARE LARGE. Long Island Ice... More

Don't waste your time or money. Just awful, the only good thing was our waitress was nice. We ordered Prime Rib. It was a big piece of tasteless raw meat. The manager was rude. Sad to write this always wanted to go there and once we did it was just terrible. Our bill was $80.00 the biggest waste of money... More

it has been a while since we have been there,but I remember the 1st time I was there for dinner- I ordered prime rib and when it was delivered to the table it looked like a side of beef- the plate was huge and the prime rib was hanging over the edges of the plate

We've been eating at Henry Wahner's since the 1980's when Henry stilled owned the place. We've always enjoyed the food and go there for special occasions. They are well known for their meat entrees. My wife loves the sauer braten and I always get the Hungarian goulash & spaetzle. People sitting around us often have a steak hanging off both... More

Thank goodness we didn't order appetizers! The salads were tiny and the dressing was bottled not made in house as we were told. The rolls were the cheapest you can buy at any market and not warmed. The prime rib was $30 of tough, raw unseasoned meat. My schnitzel was just ok and the gravy on it was too salty... More

It was an excellent meal though slightly expensive and they do not except credit so bring cash. The ambiance was very good quite German and the service is excellent. If you don't mind spending a little extra you will like this restaurant.

Went with a group of 8 who typically come here. We both ordered filet mignon (I the small, my boyfriend, the large). It was a little expensive but not outrageous considering this is the best cut of meat. I liked that my steak tasted like steak & not the stove nor charred nor smokey. Ours were both cooked to order... More

If you would like to feed a family of 4 order the prime rib. The dinners are large in size and very tasty.
