I ate an early supper at Gustav's and was there during happy hour. The appetizer was enough to fill me up along with the large stein of Weihenstephaner Dopplebock bier. I had visited this brewery in Freisburg Germany in 2004 and was delighted to sample their dunkelbier again. This bier comes from the oldest brewery in the WORLD!!! It started... More

I met friends for cocktails after work.... our waitress, Jen, was AWESOME. We didn't really want dinner but happy hour foods... she came by and checked on us, brought our drinks very fast after ordering and she was quite a gem... always smiling. Very helpful... we tipped her very well... by the way, their fondue is the best in town,... More

the specials for Gustav's Octoberfest were excellent ans reasonably priced. Our waiter adjusted our bill after we ordered a few beer steins that were outside the limits defined in the specials. A nice German atmosphere with an accordionist and group singing. Food was also tasty with decent portions.

I always try to stop here when I am in the Portland area because the food is always great. I was here for dinner with a few of my family who live nearby, before heading back home to Florida. The inside of Gustav"s has undergone a very beautiful renovation, and everything looks fresh and clean. They have a few new... More

The entire Gustav's chain just underwent a major "update", apparently in an attempt to broaden its appeal. It has a new, more playful logo/sign (i.e. moving away from the German "fraktur" font) and the menu significantly changed to include a much higher percentage of American favorites. While most of their popular German dishes remain (schnitzels, fondue, German sausage), some of... More

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our dinner there. We tried a beef flight while our food was being prepared -- the waitress was very knowledgeable in that regard. The food, salmon for my husband, and sausage something or other for me was very tasty. If we ever go back to Clackamas, we will eat there again!

When visiting the Portland area, we stay at the Monarch Hotel in Clackamas. Gustav's is directly across the 205 so while we have noticed it often, this was the first time to eat there. It is easily accessed from either Sunnyside or Sunnybrook off ramps. The building is very nice, high ceilings and beams, stained glass and the expected German... More

Been there about six times. Either the food is mediocre or the service is. Went today and it hasn't changed. Server forgot a side item then charged us. Told her about it. Her attitude was, oh well, who cares. Look elsewhere for good food and service.

Having been here several times, I am usually impressed. The food is good and a nice change from the typical restaurant fare. The staff is friendly and knowledgable. My only complaint is the wait time: for a table, for drinks, for food, and for the check.

One of the best German meals of my life. The food, service and decor was the best. If you like German food, this is your place.
