Good service, uneven floor in the gravelled outside part which made sitting a bit uncomfortable. The food was quite tasty.

We love spending time in Fredericksburg for many reasons, not the least of which is enjoying German food. Our first night we selected The Auslander for dinner. Unfortunately, the quality did not live up to our expectations. My husband really wanted Sauerbraten, but they didn't have any. The waitress suggested Rouladen as a substitution. My husband said that the meat... More

We made the mistake of choosing to go to Auslander. Serve OK -Food BAD. The "goulash" I am pretty sure is Deni Moore beef Stew just dumped out of a can. My husband got the German sausage which turned out to be Jal/Cheese sausage that you can buy any store. The green beans did not even have salt/pepper. German pot.salad... More

The Hungarian goulash and the rest of our meal hit the spot. I try to make Goulash but it never tasted so g99d as this.

I wish I could give this place a minus on the food and service! We had looked forward to some authentic German food and this place looked great. That's all the good I can say. Food was NOT authentic German food. So very sad. The service was stinky. Save your money and head elsewhere.

We've eaten at the Auslander 4 times over the past 5 years. Every time the food has been fantastic, the service has been very strong and the atmosphere is very enjoyable. The place has part of the building set like a bar/pub setting, part like a nice, romantic dining experience, and part like you are ready for an outdoor music... More

We wanted to love this place, but what you see (outside decor) is NOT what you get (inside). The staff was inefficient and had to be asked multiple times for basic things like silverware and our beverage order. The food itself was anything BUT authentic German cuisine and came to our table cold. The outdoor seating was uncomfortable (think folding... More

Overall, I'd give this place 3.5 stars. In summary I'd say this place has good food let down by lack of organization and average staff. It's not that the staff is bad, they just aren't that good. If you imagine a German-themed Applebee's or Chili's, that's what this place reminded me of. Decent food, OK atmosphere, reasonable price and staff... More

The Auslander is Germany on a plate...and on the walls, and on the tables. It is German, German, German. The atmosphere was very cute and kitschy. The food was delicious and plentiful and reasonably priced. I had the chicken schnitzel and it was crunchy and juicy. It comes with a tiny cup of applesauce and I asked for a larger... More
