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!

German food in the Bavarian Village

This is a clean and bright restaurant downstairs on the main street. The decor is pretty, the beer selections are good, and the wait staff was friendly and efficient. The menu has German specialties such as schnitzel and sauerbraten. I had chicken schnitzel which had been breaded (standard... read more

Year after year this is still a very good meal and not expensive. The service is excellent and if you are gluten free they are happy to amend the menu.

Several years ago, my husband and I ate at Andreas Keller. Where did we head off to first thing when we arrived in Leavenworth this time? Lunch at Andreas Keller. We just had to have some sausages. The next night, it was dinner. We couldn't resist the Black Forest Cake.

We were not disappointed. We went hoping for atmosphere and great food and we found it. Accordion player every night playing traditional polkas and quiet songs, and quite well. Food comes super quick. We split schnitzel cordon blue and added red cabbage. So glad we did it was just enough food. Don't forget to ask for rye bread and their... More

This is a clean and bright restaurant downstairs on the main street. The decor is pretty, the beer selections are good, and the wait staff was friendly and efficient. The menu has German specialties such as schnitzel and sauerbraten. I had chicken schnitzel which had been breaded (standard treatment) and deep fried.

OMG! We haven't had German food this good in 3 years! Don't miss it! Hubby had jaeger schnitzel and I had a jaeger cordon bleu with a cream sauce. We gobbled it and rinsed down with a dopplbach beer. We were in heaven. We barely made it back to our room, we were so satiated! Please go!

Heidi, the owner of the restaurant is a phenomenal host. She carefully selected menu items to provide a good mix of authentic foods and the classic american variety at the same time.

I've eaten at every German place in town, and this is easily my favorite. Awesome food. Great atmosphere (including live accordion). Friendly service. I recommend the Andreas Keller Sampler so you can try most of the goodies. And if you like the mustard as much as I do, you can buy it to take home.
