Always a Treat

We always stop here traveling along I-81. It is a real treat to settle in at this little piece of the Black Forest knowing that we will have dependably delicious food that you can't get elsewhere.

We stopped off of the interstate for some authentic German food, and were not disappointed. True German food and beverages and ambiance. The restaurant was a bit slow at lunchtime, but we enjoyed our meals and were enticed into making this our major meal for the day! I thought that it was a little expensive, especially for the lunch hour,... More

Our whole family totally enjoyed our "Edelweiss" experience here. The space is so charming and delightful. Our service was super nice and very gracious. The food was very delicious. All of the entrees were very generous portions with the exception of the sauerbraten which was on the small side. We loved that the side dishes were put on the table... More

We had never tried German food before, so my boyfriend and I decided to stop in. It was a beautiful evening so we sat out on the front patio. It had a lovely atmosphere with the lights overhead and the plants all around. The food was good (a little pricey), but the sides were all vegetables so we weren't full... More

The recent visit was our second to Edelweiss. The first, some years ago, was for an excellent dinner with all the trimmings. This time we stopped on a road trip from PA to SC for lunch. Instead of eating indoors, we chose one of the tables outside. We had a roof over our heads, which was good when the rain... More

We had heard from a friend that this was a must stop. We drove 30 minutes out of our way to PA from VA just to eat at Edelweiss. It was totally worth every second. From the moment we drive up the winding driveway, we were taken with this place. It was like it had been transported from Germany. The... More

Always try to stop here when in the area - lived many years in Germany and Edelweiss is the real deal. Great selection of German beers and the food is as authentic and delicious as you can find this side of Bavaria!

First I will say I am married to a 100% German man and my mother-in-law was an amazing cook. Now, We would often pass the billboard on I 81 for Edelweiss restaurant. I had decided to take my husband for his birthday as a surprise. Took a nice drive to get there. We were excited to go. So-so is how... More

I have wanted to take my husband here for months (I started working in the area and saw it). We love German food, so we were both pretty excited. Both of us ended up getting the samplers, which came with Jagerschnitzel, Sauerbraten, Goulasch, Schnitzel and Rahmschnitzel. The family style sides were bavarian cabbage, red cabbage, green beans, and Spatzle. The... More

Authentic German food. We enjoyed the accordian player and the overall ambience. Service felt rushed, though.
