Carol and Irwin provide an authentic selection of German cuisine on the banks of the Potomac River. There is room for banquets and meetings. You will think you are eating on the Rhine.

The view from the dining room is absolutely beautiful. Ask for a table on the river side of the dining room and you won't be disappointed. The service, too, was wonderful - from the time I made the reservation all the way through to our departure we were greeted and treated wonderfully. I mentioned a birthday when the reservation was...

We ate here for our "dress up night" The service was outstanding. Questions about the menu were answered promptly. The view from the windows was so lovely. The food was good. Not outstanding but very good. All in all it was a very pleasant dining experience.

As white tablecloth restaurants disappear across the nation, we appreciate those that remain. The Bavarian Inn, in a pretty location within 2 hours of Washington, DC, near Harper's Ferry and Antietam, has very good food, correctly priced, and polite wait staff. We make it a point to get there twice a year, in July in connection with Shepherdstown's Contemporary American... More

This restaurant adjoining the Bavarian Inn offers a variety of menu items ranging from local favorites, contemporary American cuisine, and traditional German food along with a very large wine list (and more than decent Beer list). The indoor and outdoor seating seemed lovely and clean with a formal (though perhaps a little dated) dining room, a relaxed tap room (the... More

Dear Valued Guest, Thank you for your kind review. We are glad you enjoyed your experience. I apologize for the lighting. We attempt to close the umbrellas at the perfect time when shade is no longer needed, and clearly did not make it during your experience. We hope to welcome you back in the near future!

We dined at the Bavarian Inn restaurant on a recent visit to Antietam Battlefield. I would recommend that you do the same. The elegant dining room is large and bright and very pleasant.

The place was clean and typically decorated for a hotel restaurant. Waitstaff adequate. The food was ok. They use local produce which is good. The corn cream/pasta was good but their shrimp and scallops were ordinary with no special flavor. The dessert options were nice and tasty.

The dining room is very bright (several other reviewers recommended the Rath Skeller and I would probably try that the next time). We had german cuisine which was good.

Thank you for this review. When the sun is out, the room tends to be rather bright, as there are many windows. We do dim the lights later in the evening as the sun goes down to create a different atmosphere. As you mentioned for another experience, we do have the Rathskellar, which is in the lower level below ground.... More

We were staying in Charles Town but none of the restaurants appealed to us. We found the Bavarian Inn on Trip Advisor and decided to try it. What a beautiful place. Our meals were outstanding. I tried the antelope medallions which were very tender and delicious. They had a number of selections that were different from regular restaurant food. The... More

I don't know why “Dining Room” is included in the title of this restaurant The Trip Advisor search function didn't work well. My husband and I took a German guest there on Saturday after visiting Harper's Ferry. It was late for lunch and early for dinner. We were in shorts so knew we wouldn't go to the main dining room...
