Traveling along I-81, just south of Staunton VA, we found Edelweiss just a minute off the interstate. And what a find it was! This restaurant is delightful, especially from the inside. It makes you feel as if you're in the Black Forest of Germany! The food was very good, and what is especially nice is that the sides are served... More

We were traveling north from GA to NH during the holiday season and decided we were hungry. My husband saw the sign so we ventured off the highway for a leisurely break. To our surprise we found this quaint restaurant nestled off the highway. Having traveled to Germany we thought, how good could this be? We so pleasantly reminded of... More

Stopped here on the road after Christmas and we were glad we did! Good selection of family style sides accompany the entrees. We enjoyed the sauerbraten and stuffed cabbage which was one of the specials. Generous portions and very authentic; friendly service and charming decor!

I have been visiting this restaurant for the past 16 years and although the prices have gone up, the quality and selection of food is great. There is a wide range of selections on the menu and I always get whatever special comes with the home made mashed potatoes as they are outstanding, just like my grand mother used to... More

We ate here on a Sunday night and were waited on by the owner,Walt. The food was very good. Walt spent a lot of time at our table regaling us with jokes and stories. Nuff said.

This was a cute little German place with really good food!!! The restaurant has a nice feel, it seems kind of quaint. I ordered and shared the Wiener schnitzel. The meat was cooked well and really tasty. It came with many sides but we also got the dumplings and sauerkraut. The cooked cabbage (slightly sweet) and the red cabbage were... More

I love this place! I live in Richmond but try to get here a few times during the year. Great food, wonderful atmosphere and the wait staff are helpful and friendly. The German potato salad taste just like my Grandma made.

The whole atmosphere of the restaurant is very warm and inviting. It feels like you are in Germany, and often they have musicians who really complete the ambiance. The food is fantastic. I think it is best to go with a group so that you can taste each other's dishes. The sides come served family style and there are plenty.... More

We enjoyed a schnitzel with all the trimings and just had to try the Black Forrest cake--it was great ! The decorations were great and all the food tasted genuine ,almost like in Frankfurt in Germany , well worth a stop anytime you are close by Exit 213 on rt 81 .

I have been coming here for quite some time. Over the last few visits the food quality seems to have dropped somewhat. The wait staff is OK, buton our recent visits they made no attempt to really make you feel welcome. I'll probably try it again in the future, but as of now for the cost for a couple I'd... More
