Nestled in the beautiful Shenandoah valley just outside of Staunton, Va is this quaint little German restaurant. It is as authentic as you can get on the inside and the flowers and views of the mountains make it a great place to come to. The food is just okay. I have to agree with the previous write up about the... More

We loved it. Delicious. But it is SYSCO food. But you know what, they know how to make it taste fresh and homemade. The 16 Sysco food boxes were pilled in the back of the quaint house. The staff was super. The place is adorable. Easy to find, easy parking. Dessert strawberry cake wonderful. Chicken meal wonderful. Wish it was... More

Our second annual trip to Edelweiss did not disappoint! My mother ordered a stuffed cabbage special. She is a light eater, and still somehow managed to eat nearly both large stuffed cabbages for lunch! I ordered the same thing I did last year, the spinach pie, made from layers of thin crepes. There are many small side dishes that come... More

Stopped here on the way back from a girl's weekend in Charlottesville, VA. WOW! You enter the restaurant and you feel as though you have stepped into Germany. There was a gentleman playing an accordion. The fireplace was burning and it was so quaint. We placed our orders and enjoyed the ambiance of the place. Prices were reasonable and the... More

We spent the night at the nearby Hometown Inn and the Edelweiss sounded interesting. The restaurant is in a log building and had great atmosphere. Our visit was on a Friday night and after ordering our meal were surprised to hear live accordion music,featuring familiar German tunes. Our meal was served family style with the sides served in separate dishes.... More

Although we had driven down this section of Highway 81 several times we had never stopped at the Edelweiss Restaurant. It is a delightful log building just a minute off the freeway, with an exceptional choice of authentic German menu items. The Rhamschnitzel was outstanding and it came with red cabbage, German cabbage, green beans and spatzle. We even had... More

Great place to stop on our way home from TN to NY right off 81. They even accommodated our dogs we were traveling with by seating us outside. The food was good, could be improved but the atmosphere, location, friendly staff made this stop over well worth it!

On a recent road trip through Virginia my husband and I were looking for a non-chain place to eat. We happened to see the sign for the Edelweiss in Staunton, Virginia and we were so happy we stopped. It is a cute little place that serves authentic German food. We very much enjoyed everthing we had and they have a... More

Although we had seen the sign for the restaurant on I-81 in the past, we never had time to stop or had already eaten. On a trip back through Stuarts Draft, we stopped at an antique mall and inquired about local food. Edelweiss was suggested, and we decided to give it a try. I was so glad we did. The... More
