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

Whenever we are driving down 81 to see our daughters, we try to stop in at the Edelweiss. In addition to our favorites of weiner schnitzel and brats, they had beer mugs for sale this time. Great music and service. We always leave having had a great time and with full bellies!

We were driving down from Boston to North Carolina and spotted this place as an option for dinner on the way down. We arrived around 7pm on a Saturday. The place was pretty empty, but there was an accordion player going, which was really cool. I have always loved Jagerschnitzel...so I ordered that, while my wife got the beef stroganoff.... More

For a Wednesday the place was just about full. There really needed to be more servers. We were seated quickly by one of the wait staff. But the two servers were so busy, took a while for just about segment of the service. Food was ok, there was plenty of it. Just wish they had planned better and had more... More
