Great food, spotty service

The food was extremely good. We had a booth with a lovely view of Clackamas and Milwaukie. We were there about 3:00 PM, and apparently that's when a shift change occurs, or something, because our service started out great, and then became non-existent. Too bad, too, because the food, decor, and... read more

German food isn't exactly on the cutting edge of food cuisine in my opinion, but every so often who doesn't want some sausage, schnitzel, and beer? Gustav's is a friendly atmosphere and the food is very satisfying, so its worth a trip when you are in the mood. I was on my own, so I sat at the bar and... More

The Gustav and Rheinlander restaurants have been some of our favorite places to go to get a glimpse of Germany, but they have continuously gone down hill in terms of authenticity. The food is pretty good. And you can't beat the fondue. But why is there American music playing? Last time we went they were completely out of Hofbrau Helles... More

Fondue W/ bread & sausage is a must. We order two links, which are good size and you can try two different favors. Schnitzels are good, as well as the chicken schnitzel club. Huge and always take 1/2 home. Try the happy hour on Sunday's all day!

Great Ambience! Superb Server (Kimmie)! Food was delightful - very authentic cuisine. We had a hiccup on our meals being served - warm, not hot. Kimmie got on it immediately, insisting the kitchen do it all from scratch. The Manager on Duty served the replacement food, and apologized profusely. He also suggested we leave room for dessert, as it was... More

My husband and I love Gustav's and typically sit at the bar. At our last visit, we had such poor service that I feel a need to comment. The server never once asked us if we needed anything else. Every time we needed a drink, a menu, to order food, silverware, etc. We had to flag him down. And it... More

Visiting the area for the first time a friend suggested Gustav's, but had not been there herself. Atmosphere is welcoming and inside is roomy, so even though other reviews mentioned it being a family place, we were not next to nor bothered by kids. In fact upon entering the hostess asked if all persons in party were over 21 then... More

If you are looking for a fun family friendly restaurant Gustav's is an excellent choice. We have visited on and off over the years when we are in town and always have an great experience. The Original Fondue here is also a must, everyone will love it.

We happened to be at this restaurant during happy hour so we ordered a couple of drinks and an appetizer from the happy hour menu - a glass of wine, beer and the cheese fondue which were great! Since we we both super hungry we ordered from the regular menu, German sausages and the schnitzel. Both were excellent and very... More

To starting my review, I'd give service 5 stars! I wish we took down the name of our server. We ordered the Original Fondue (which was ok). I'd recommend you try the other fondues. For our main course, we ordered the 3 links combo and advised the server to pick the combo links for us and that my brother and... More
