Tasty, semi-authentic food in a fun environment

Great atmosphere, don't be intimidated by the queue! We were surprised when our currywurst didn't come out as a traditional currywurst, but it was still very good and you can load up on curry ketchup at the condiment stand. The mustards and kraut are delicious. The pretzel was good and we loved the... read more

Hidden in the corner on Front Street in Leavenworth is probably one of the best bratwurst I have had in a very long time. You order at the counter (the German Potato salad is a must try as well) and it is open/family seating. We also got a German style beer but it was local from Yakima WA. We arrived... More

If you like Brautworst, or hotdogs of any kind this is your spot. Many people eat here daily! They are fast service and have seating and drinks available. Beer on tap as well as other drinks to go with your meal.

I read the reviews on this place and was so disappointed in the brat. The Big Boy was supposed to be a good German brat. It was not. I lived in Germany for many years and this was not good or even close to authentic. The sauerkraut was also not good. The staff were pleasant. I'm sorry I wasted a... More

Great beer, sausage and pretzels. they have the largest mustard selection that I have ever seen. I must go back just for that. it's great place for a snack or lunch. it is outdoor seating and a very popular place. I wish I could have went back another time before we had to leave.

Not a restaurant...sausages..lousy at that. The wine was terrible...tasted all and decided on expensive beer. There were tons of people in line for sticky, unclean bench tables. The quality belies the Trip Advisor comments I read.

Maybe German pretzels are supposed to taste hard but the pretzels I enjoy are soft. The cheese sauce tasted like flour and butter only not cheese. The place was crowded so maybe the other food is good.

My husband and I did a lot of Trip Advisor research before going to Leavenworth and KNEW Muchen Haus was the place for us. We each had a brat while the kids shared a soft pretzel. Everything was great, even the lemonade. The worse part of it is choosing which mustard to have! There are so many choices! I opted... More

I have been too Leavenworth several times and have never eaten at this popular place. We finally decided to try it on this trip. I have been missing out all these years! Will definitely make this a must when I go again!
