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!

My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Andreas Keller on our last visit to Leavenworth. We happened to go on a no-music night. We were disappointed (we enjoy the accordion player and the German music), until our big, warm pretzel and the great beer arrived. We both had the goulash. It was delicious--full of tender very lean beef... More

Went to visit Leavenworth with my wife this weekend. Beautiful scenery and atmosphere, very romantic all around. Decided to eat at Andreas Keller. No long wait to be seated which was great after the long drive there. Staff was very polite, welcoming, and willing to answer any questions about a particular dish. We had the large pretzel with two beers.... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our restaurant. I am very happy that your experience was a great one.! For 25 years we have been serving guests in this 100-year-old building, and while we understand that more restrooms would be great, there simply is no way to add them. As it is, people wait in line on busy... More

This is the genuine German restaurant in Leavenworth. The food is authentic and the atmosphere reminds me of Bavaria.

Enjoyed the food very much, although not totally authentic. The beer was very good. The 'button box' player on Friday was fun, engaging, full of life and we had a great time dancing & singing. We returned on Saturday night just for drinks, of course the beer was still great. But the second night (4-11-2015) we had an entertainer who... More

The music was wonderful, and the food - HUGE portions! My partner and I had the Pork Hock and Sausage Platter and drank the gluhwein and hefeweizen! Service was great (friendly staff) and the food was very very tasty.

Having spent a a few years stationed in Germany, it was so much fun for us to feel like we were sitting in a traditional German restaurant. The food was authentic German fare, but average. Definitely worth going for the experience!
