I recently purchased a Groupon for the German Pantry and thought that would be a good way to try them out. I placed a To Go deli order 48 hours (Tuesday) before I needed it, just like the guy told me to do. I asked for an order of HOT spaetzle and HOT German Potato Salad for pick-up at 4:30pm... More

This is one of those little hole in the wall places that has excellent food. The food is top notch, being one of a very small number of German restaurants in hampton roads, I choose to go here for a reason

I have lived in the area for thirty years and have never visited this place! It closed for a couple of years for new ownership when I finely decided to visit. The reviews were bad, so I put off visiting, but I must say the bad reviews were unfounded. Friday we finely decided to give it a try. Kelly gave... More

We ate here the night of July 12, 2014. Food was good, but not great. Service was satisfactory. They served good sized portions and the prices were not out of line. I would try it again and the rating could go up next time. It is in a small shopping center.

The wife and I have eaten at the German Pantry twice in the last month. To start with the restaurant is located in a small shopping center with very poor parking. The restaurant itself is clean but simple with mismatched furniture and seating. The wait staff is OK but disorganized. On our prior visit. We arrived early (about 5pm) and... More

The German Pantry is the best German food we've found in Virginia. We happily drive a half hour out of our way to come here whenever we visit my mother in Suffolk. Her German background makes this a nice trip down memory lane, especially with the German potatoes, corned beef and beer. We also heartily recommend the sausage/cheese tray appetizer!
