Great value for upscale brunch buffet

Good food, good service in a beautiful country-setting. Well worth the 1- 1 1/2 hour beautiful drive from DC, VA, MD suburbs. We come here several times a year, for special occasions. Most families dress up the kids when they come here. You can tell most people treat this as a special... read more

Used to have better quality but since son's took over food quality has lowered. Won't go back at this point after trying 3 times under new regime.

We ate here several times. Had breakfast, lunch and one dinner. The breakfasts were promptly served and the wait staff went out of their way to make sure we received what we wanted. For example, my 6 yr old doesn't like melon so the staff made up fruit bowls with just berries. As for lunch we had crab cakes and... More

So, mussels as an appetizer seemed safe. But, it was unwise. They were tiny and shriveled, I'm guessing from being out of water too long. The bread served in the dish was tasteless and stale. As an entree, I figured wiener schnitzel would be a safe choice in a German restaurant. Again, unwise. The schnitzel was overcooked and over breaded.... More

Dear Beggg, I'm sorry that you did not enjoy your experience with us. We just switched to our Seafood festival menu, and your comments are actually the first negative reviews I've heard. Our mussels are delivered fresh from PEI, and our schnitzels are all made, and breaded to order. Once again, I am sorry that you didn't enjoy your meal.... More

This was our first time visiting the Bavarian Inn and we were thrilled with the authentic Bavarian decor and vibe. The dining room is dark and lavish with chandeliers made of antlers and wood carvings on the walls. We were initially seated by the window which would have been lovely but it got quite cold after dark. The wait staff... More

First time visit was what we hoped for from their Sunday Brunch. Food was always fresh and at the right temperature. Adam was over-seeing the tables in his care with a friendly, low-key manner. He didn't miss anything. A chef suggested one of the Inn's sauces to pair with the Game loaf, man, it was spot on. Oysters had the... More

We had an awesome Spring Fling experience. Unique & bountiful dining experience, many courses paired with beers & wine. Angela was an amazing server & educated us with each course. We were pleased to enjoy Angela's sister, Tiffany for a wonderful breakfast. Pleasant & yummy venture.

We took a drive and decided to head out to the Bavarian Inn, since we hadn't been there in years and always loved it. We were dressed rather casually so knew we'd have to eat in the Rathskeller pub; we called and got reservations. It was a busy night and there was a group of five or six having drinks... More

We reserved the Spring Fling package, which included our room and 4 course meal. I was so excited to finally have my husband experience the dining room. Unfortunately we were not advised when making the reservation that there was an event going on. We were seated upstairs in a small room against a wall, no windows or views for us.... More

I don't typically like traditional German food, so I was skeptical, but the food was very good, excellent, YUMMY! Everything was well cooked, the flavor profiles were very good. The service was excellent not pushy like in some restaurants. They accommodated our specific requests about foods so I can tell that the food is fresh and not pre-made. Which was... More
