Stopped for lunch. Right off interstate 81 at exit 213. Had the Knackwurst and Jagerschnitzel. Both were excellent. The dishes come with all you have want green beans, Bavarian cabbage, red cabbage, and spatzel. Real German draft beer, and Black Forest cake for desert. This place was a great surprise.

My car broke down nearby during a crosscountry roadtrip so I had a day or two to kill while I waited for the repairs. I wandered over to Edelweiss for some breakfast the next morning and ended up never leaving. Not only was it the best German food I've ever had (get the fried fish! And cake!) but they even... More

Six of us stopped in for a late night dinner at Edelweiss. Even though it was fifteen minutes until closing, our waiter was very gracious and patient. I had the sauerbraten which was some of the best I have ever had. The sides, all served family style, were ample and delicious. This delightful little German restaurant, though a bit off... More

My wife and I stopped here on the recommendation of the local KOA staff, and we were very glad we did. The ambience is rustic and feels like it came directly from a Bavarian town with food on par with the same. Several of the staff speak German and were very knowledgeable of both the food and culture. I had... More

What a wonderful find near Staunton. Our reservation was honored promptly & we experienced great (and very humorous) service from Walter! Highly recommend the German sampler dish. We've never had better Sauerbraten anywhere!! The various schnitzels and gravies were delicious. The special of the day was cabbage rolls - excellent. My wife ordered the Bratwurst & Weirwurst; again, absolutely delicious... More

Several years ago we stopped and ate here but none of the three of us were pleased with the food. My wife and I stopped again to give it a second chance and we were pleased with the food this time. I had the sauerbraten and it was good as were sides that came with our meals. The service was... More

We drive the I-81 corridor a great deal for a variety of reasons and we're always looking for new places to stop, either for food or sites or shopping. I will go miles out of my way to try a German restaurant and I've wanted to stop at Edelweiss Restaurant for more than 10 years but there just hasn't been... More

I love eating here on my visits to the Shenandoah Valley. The food is just delicious. Although I've never had an entree that was lacking (I've tried the Knackwurst, the rindsrouladen, and the schweineroulade), I think my favorite part of every meal is the side dishes, particularly the red cabbage and spatzel. I also enjoy the savory Bavarian dumplings. There... More

This is my favorite restaurant along I81. The ambience makes me feel like I am in Germany, especially on the days when they have live music. The food is fantastic, reasonably priced with generous portions. The staff is always friendly. I highly recommend this place for a authentic amazing meal.
