We have eaten here many times over the years, and it has always been a pleasure. This is a place to come to enjoy a leisurely meal. You are meant to linger, not rush in and be on a deadline. Rarely have we had issues with service, and if any issues arose, the staff is very quick to correct it.... More

As you enter this restaurant you smell the bread baking and the aroma of steaks and veal being prepared ... Had the veal slices with wild mushroom gravy and spatzle ...Yumm and of course a few glasses of cold weiss bier to wash it down ... My friend go the farmers platter and it was enough food for 3 meals... More

My girlfriend and I went to Gerhard's for an impromptu Monday 'date night'. As expected the restaurant was quiet, and we were directed to sit anywhere we wanted. The atmosphere and decor in the restaurant is great. A very 'old world' vibe with open fireplaces, bookshelves, and lots of dark wood. The menu is not the straight German we were... More

Good grief ~ what's not to like at Gerhard's! Formal or casual dining....from Ostrich to fish & chips.....and it's all so well prepared & nicely presented. Gerhard's is a fun local hang out, an excellent business venue, and the perfect special event dining experience!

My wife and I grew up in Spartanburg, and while we have been away for many years, keep coming back routinely to visit family. We had never tried Gerhard's before, but decided on a recent visit to give it a try. We expected the usual heavy food one finds at a German restaurant, but were pleasantly surprised by the abundance... More

Great food with mixture of Austrian/German and Southern comfort foods. Food was well prepared and tasty. The fried grits cakes were a real treat. Several styles of eating areas from formal dining to dim wood paneled pub to open airy area and an outdoor patio. Service was great. Wide selection of wines and beers. A little pricey but well worth... More

Atmosphere is very authentic and lovely. Menu has plenty of choices (few items were unfamiliar) so we had to ask... but always willing to try new things! Drink specials were tasty if not pretty. Meal was delicious and huge helping. We had plenty to take home. Desserts were awesome looking on the display tray but the actually deliver was incredible!!!... More

We ate a Gerhard's for the first time. The Vienna side has a certain elegance and the service is very good. The wine list has a very good range of selections and is much better priced than most upscale restaurants. We had a gumbo soup special that was very tangy and well done. The other apps were not a spicey... More
