Just OK

This is an odd one. Some of the food was really good (red cabbage, spaetzle), while the main dish was extremely dry. If the beef did not have gravy with it, it would have been hard to get down. It had a good flavor, just hard to eat. It seemed like precooked, reheated food. The beer was very good... read more

I recently just visited this establishment! The food was absolutely amazing and the customer service was outstanding! We had the platter for four and it was delicious and all of my family loved it as well! I would defiantly recommend this place!

Heard about this place. Ate there. Not impressed. Food was not to the standards that I would serve to people. It tasted like Mexican interpretations instead of European fare. Music didn't last long enough. They quit at 9 PM. Where to now? Not a European experience at all.

This is a fun beerhall in this faux-Bavarian enclave in central Washington. I went as part of a tour group. As such we had a pre-arranged meal that featured the King Ludwig's Platter Family Style for 6 ... in actuality for about 85. The variety of meats and side dishes were impressive and tasty ... and no one went away... More

Being from Munich, Germany, we come to Leavenworth every now and then so that I can experience a piece of home in the US. A couple of days ago, we decided to give the King Ludwig's a try. This was the worst German food I have ever had in my life!!! We ordered a platter for two and Käsespätzle. The... More

Had a great lunch here while in Leavenworth. The service was top notch.We chose to sit in the beer garden where it was a little more casual compared to the dining room. Oh and be sure to order a nice cold German beer

The guy playing the accordion was a neat touch but that was basically the only good thing about this place. The food was terrible, and for the most part had no taste. I doubt the wife and I would ever go back.

The service was mediocre, the food was worse. Dry piece of meat, a sorry excuse for sauerbraten, with a crappy pasty microwaved sauce on top. Authentic looking interior couldn't make up for lousy food. The beer was good, but it took forever to get a waitress, and there were not a very many people in there. Don't bother with this... More

This was highly recommended by staff at World Mark not to be missed. Even gave us a coupon. Service was very bad, only making it worse was the food. We ordered brats and a few other things, kraut was horrid. Asked for hot tea as it was freezing inside - we were the only ones there. Got a cup of... More
