This family-owned business has been bringing Bavaria to Leavenworth for over 25 years. The chef, Anita Hamilton, has been personally overseeing the kitchen since 1991 and is a native of Germany. The made-from-scratch desserts, soups and entrees are reminiscent of traditional Gasthaus fare. The owner, Heidi Forchemer, travels to Germany yearly for new menu ideas. Her son, Max, can be heard playing his button accordion most weekends, along with other local musicians, such as Tom Tilton of the Alpenfolk band. It simply doesn't get more authentic than this!

We shared a large table with another family, which is very much like eating in Germany. We started with a very large pretzel, which was good, but I thought a bit overpriced. The mustard was very good. I had the Weisswurst with kraut and German potato salad. All tasted very good. The German potato salad is served cold (I've always... More

We stopped in for lunch and found they offered a lunch special which was exactly what we were looking for... They had some really great German sausages, very flavorful potato salad and spatzle! If you want some really good authentic German food this is a must stop. It was family friendly and prices were reasonable. Would definitely go back!

We stopped for the night on our way to Stehikin and decided we needed a German fix. The beer selection on tap was varied from light to dark and all German brews. Partner had Oktoberfest and I had dunkel. Both were quite good. They had several wheat beers which I do not like so I skipped over those selections. Partner... More

My wife and I both had the jaegarsnitzel as it was highly recommened by our server. The meat & mushroom sauce was delicious. The spatzel was ok ( would have enjoyed it more if it was fried more ). The meal was $20 & topped with a 20oz $8 beer that could have been much colder. Live Accorian music played... More

I understand that it can be expensive to travel, so we always try to offer the best food at affordable prices. The labor that goes into making our noodles, sauces, soups and Schnitzels is costly, but because we make everything possible from scratch, I feel it's a good value. Our generous portions, live music 7 nights a week from June... More

We visited this restaurant on a Saturday afternoon with family. We were not very hungry, so we ordered a sampler of different sausages . They came well cooked accompanied with sauerkraut . The food was good and the tap beer was refreshing.

After several years absence, we revisited Leavenworth to play golf and have an authentic German meal. Andreas Keller was recommended and was not disappointing. We and another couple (one of whom grew up in Augsburg Germany) enjoyed the beef goulash, schnitzel, and smoked pork cutlets along with German brewed beer that was the best since visiting Germany in 2009!

Of the three European/German style restaurants my husband and I ate at during our visit to Leavenworth, Andreas Keller was by far the best. I had a pork schnitzel with a pepper cream sauce, and this was very tender and flavorful. The dish was served with spaetzel - lumppy, but quite tasty German noodles with parsley garnish.

This is a restaurant with family tradition in the Bavarian village of Leavenworth in Washington state. We came in for lunch on a Sunday, and had very food in an authentic atmosphere. Service was quick and friendly, and the schnitzel was amazing !
