Excellent German fare

They are so many choices for German food in Leavenworth, Washington, as this town is all based on an alpine barvarian theme. We chose King Ludwigs as they had several variety platters. We chose one that had the traditional sausage, schnitzel, kraut and red cabbage. We also included scwein hauken... read more

Pork weiner snitzel and beef goulosh were very nice with complementary sides of red cabbage and spaetzel ... but who wants a country bar singer in a German restaurant at dinner time?

We stopped in because we all wanted schnitzel for dinner. While the portions were great I rated the food as average. Being of German heritage I was expecting more flavor...the red cabbage was very tasty and the gravy on the schnitzel was good but not enough. There was a great offering for kids and they also had a polka band!... More

Ordered King Ludwig's family platter for 4. Just too much meat to finish. The red sauerkraut helped a little. The leftover was good for re-cook (pan fry) with variety of vegetables.

Cool family style seating, band in the back. Big beers and platters of food. We did their platter for two that had a couple sausages, schnitzel, "German meatloaf" potatoes, cabbage and kraut. So yummy. Service is okay, i had to flag them down for refills which wasn't a deal-breaker but would have assumed they would want to sell more in... More

Not what I expected. Food was ok, service was ok, atmosphere was awful. Really a let down for this town. Not a fan at all of the cabbage.

I went here after Munchen Haus because I was still hungry after the hot dog. Ordered Schweinshax’n and apple strudel. The hock was well seasoned, crispy on the outside. The meat inside is a bit tough, but nevertheless it is still very good. Apple strudel was also good. Sauce was sweet but not overly sweet, balanced well with apples. The... More

This restaurant is interesting...it has two seating areas, one for the regular dinners which is small and intimate, and one for tour bus passengers which is full of picnic tables and is cavernous. There is a good selection of various German foods including options with chicken instead of veal or pork. Wait staff was attentive and friendly. I really enjoyed... More
