The staff was terrific!

I confirmed that I am actually not a big fan of German cuisine, but since we were in Leavenworth, we had to go to a German restaurant. The staff made the experience worth the stop--they were so cordial and pleasant even though they had more than a full house while we were there. The apple strudel... read more

Great way to keep with the German Alps tradition in this town and a very similar dinner to what we had in the real German and Austrian alps! We both had the sausage - Sorry - I meant Wurst! You could choose from 4 varieties or mix them the platter can with great roast potatoes, 2 kinds of mustard and... More

My husband is German and he wanted authentic German Food. We found it. The chicken schnitzel with mushroom sauce was excellent. The rotisserie chicken was so juicy and tender. They had a German band playing music. People were dancing and clapping. Great food and entertainment.

I had the Jaeger Schnitzel, it was great! Eat in the Bier Garten section, it has live music. Will come back for sure.

One of the things we try to do each summer is visit Leavenworth Washington. It's a kitchy, fake Bavarian village nestled in the Cascade foothills. The setting does look postively alpine. Tourists swarm constantly. One of the reasons we like visiting is having dinner at King Ludwig's Restaurant. For a long time it had the best Sauerbraten in town. The... More

My husband was stationed in Germany for 5 years so when we got the opportunity to go to Leavenworth we of course had to have German food. I ordered the Snitzel. It was good not overcooked huge portions I couldn't eat it all. Ok food but next time I will try the other German place.

While in Leavenworth, my fiance wanted to try this location. The bathroom wait sucked since there's only one stall for each gender. The tourists like to use the bathrooms there since it's right at the entrance and there are MANY tourists. As for the food, it was good but not outstanding. The restaurant was cozy with many families dining. There... More

The service was very quick but there was not a great atmosphere (no music) . To be fair it was a Monday night but when we went to another restaurant the next night it was much better. I had the Schnitzel and my wife had Rouladen which was not as tender as it should be
