We split a Schweinshax’n dinner. This is a unique pork dish. You can see it on the rotisserie in the window. We ate in a large room where there were a lot of tables and a musician playing songs like 'Edelweiss' on the according. It was a fun and unique experience.

We loved Leavenworth but had only a short time to visit. We decided to have lunch at King Ludwig's. There were only three other tables with patrons. We had some typical German fare, which was all very good, but a little pricey. I really expected more food for what we paid. But, it was still a nice experience, the decor... More

Although the restaurant was only half full, we were ignored by all the servers for about 15 minutes. When we were finally able to flag one down, she denied she was our server and said that she would let someone know. Ten more minutes go by. My husband finally hunted down a menu and then 1 minute later the same... More

My family and I went here for dinner on a Friday night. We ended up being the only table in the place. The decor and food are what I would want and expect from a German restaurant. The irritating part was the service was so bad, they refilled our water one time but only for half of the table. There... More

Ludwigs is a very family friendly restaurant and would be perfect for large groups. They serve typical German style food. However the food was over priced and not the best place for couples. We stopped for the German food and to get out of the cold. Okay experience not my favorite.

For the price, I was a bit disappointed. The food was bland other than the sauerkraut. The spaetzle in particular was flavorless. The family platter is your biggest bang for your buck here.

There was a long queue when we got in but was seated relatively quick. Service was great and warm. Owner goes around to check everything is okay. Food is average. The pork knuckle was a little tough. The pan fried bread was amazing. Sausages were also good as expected. A little disappointed with the meatloaf though. Not as tasty as... More

My family was so looking forward to eating here, and we were not disappointed. If you want good food, you have to be patient and remember that this restaurant is always packed, cuz people keep coming back for the food. My personal favorite is the Schweinshax’n, Pork Hocks, it is the Best. Try the Cucumber Salad too, for me, it... More

We stopped by for a friends birthday. There was polka music and a lot of people drinking beer. The food consisted of roasted meats, potatoes and sauerkraut. I particularly enjoyed the spaetzle.
