The food was nothing terrific compared to other German restaurants that I have been to. The little bowls that the sampler was served in made it difficult to eat and took up way too much room on the small table. The restaurant was really busy which was a problem because the tables were too close together. Service was okay.

We stopped for lunch on our way up I-81. We were intrigued that there was a German Restaurant on a side road outside of Staunton, VA. The building has the charm of a small chalet hidden away on a small hill in the country. Inside you enter the world of a country German restaurant. It is quite pleasant. We had... More

German Atmosphere – Got It! Great German Food – Got It! This is as close to an authentic German restaurant we have found. If you were traveling around Bavaria and stumbled onto a quaint restaurant, this would be it. The interior transports you to Germany with quiet class. Our favorite is Schnitzel but the menu has a great selection to... More

We had rinds roulades weinerschnitzel and sauerbraten. All were great. The cabbage is also top notch, spatzel was al dente, and sadly the green beans had been scorched and that flavor dominated. Large selection of German beers on draft and in the bottle available in 12 or 20 oz. size. Desserts were homemade and excellent. Black Forest cake is their... More

We are lucky enough to live close by and this has become one of our favorite restaurants. Food is consistently good, good size portions, friendly staff that makes you feel welcome as soon as you are in the door. I love to get the German sampler! Good selection of wines and beers. We love it when the accordion player is... More

What a great little restaurant. The food, the service, the accordion player, the atmosphere, the view. Cant say enough wonderful things about Edelweiss. Huge portions of delicious, authentic German food. My dad and I extremely enjoyed the music and could have stayed there for hours. Will definitely be back. Danke!!

We have eaten here three times. Once many years ago when our son was a preteen. We all enjoyed the experience and when Casey walked the AT we picked him up and went to eat here again at his request. Again, good! Recently my husband and I were traveling on I-81 and decided to stop again. So, here's the deal.... More

Don't go to Frankfurt--just go to the mountains of Virginia. We frequently have stopped by in the evening when there was live music, but had just as much fun at lunch with the recorded German music. Great selection of authenic German food--weiner schnitzel, sausages, spaetzel, cabbage, etc. Service is family style. They also sell beer mugs and t-shirts. Fun time!

Get the German sampler. It comes with a lot of food and it's well worth your money. Definitely a taste of real German food here. And the people who run it speak German well.
