Great meal with a view

We enjoy eating at the Bavarian Inn dining room -- they have German dishes like schnitzel and sausages and sauerkraut, along with contemporary, seasonal dishes. Nice wine list, and now they offer some specialty cocktails too. If you're there for CATF weekend, book early enough to account for the... read more

My husband and I asked to be seated on the patio to drink in the view while we had our lunch. I ordered a hamburger med-rare to rare, and my husband, the schwineschnitzel. My hamburger was delivered well done and the German potato salad was similar to luke warm mash potatoes with a little vinegar for taste. My husband ate... More

My wife and I recently took a house guest to visit the Antiatam battle field and stopped here for lunch. We have stayed at and eaten several times at the Bavarian Inn. Unfortunately, this time the lunch was mediocre at best. Our guest and I made the mistake to order the Fish and Chips "Salad." Not a salad - one... More

Full of atmosphere, food is great! We always make a reservation when in town. They have lodging and an infinity poll, have never stayed here, too far away from everything. It is a college town, though we have only been to the restaurant

Our party had sausage, sauerbraten, and two pork dishes. All were well done. Excellent sauerkraut. Very nice room, and friendly, fast service. Easy to get to from Antietam. Well priced

Nice room, nice view; the seafood terrine (amuse-bouche) was flavorful and interesting; good bread; two of four entrees were dry; the seaonal appetizer, caprese, was disappointing; schwinebraten with spaetzel was authentic but uninspired; service was good: helpful sommelier.

Go for the pairing. The food the wine the fun is priceless. We had the best time and stayed in a great room that overlooked the river. Our accommodations were well appointed and we had plenty of room to have friends in with a seating area and large gas fireplace before attending dinner.

Wait staff awesome, food fair and overpriced for the product. The food was too disguised with salt and seasoning to enjoy the dishes.

We go up to the Contemporary American Theatre Festival each year, and for the past several have always stayed at the Bavarian Inn. Mostly for convenience we heat about half of our meals in their dining room. They are very good.
