.Seated at dusk on the patio and warmly greeted by server, we were looking for something special. The appetizers were good, but the German specialties ranged from okay to not great. Also, the portions were small -- green vegetables to accompany would be nice. Hungry, we ordered 3 courses each, and weren't very satisfied.

Dear frugalm0m, Thank you for your second review. I'm glad you enjoyed the atmosphere, and service. From your other reviews I see that large portion size is certainly something very important to you. I am sorry that ours did not meet your needs. Perhaps some of the items like the 3 German sausages with smoked pork loin, mashed potatoes &... More

I didn't go to the BI for a long time after a few meh trips. Nothing awful, it just seemed to be getting a little seedy and mediocre, tired menu and indifferent presentation. But I'm very happy I gave it another shot for lunch. The new management has definitely put the spring back in the employees' steps. The service was... More

Five of us had lunch in the dining room, each getting different entrees from seafood to German sausages. We were all pleased; the service was great. Two of us had breakfast there, once again with great service and many choices. We both had omelets, which were very good.

After a long day out with the kids, we stopped at Bavarian Inn for a good meal. The staff were very accommodating, however the food took over an hour -- so long, in fact that we inquired several times and considered leaving. That's just much too long for any restaurant, especially one that was not even half full. Unfortunately, we... More

I've had dinner there on several occasions and have not been disappointed. Good food, nice ambiance, etc. I also had lunch there one time which was also very good.

We recently dined at the Bavarian Inn while traveling through the area. We chose the Rathskeller since it offers casual dining with the same menu as the formal rooms. My cream of crab soup was excellent as were both our German entrees. I ordered a chocolate tart for dessert, which was amazing.....warm, soft chocolate with fresh cream. Our server was... More

We haven't been to the Bavarian Inn in over 2 years (moved away from the area) and our past dining experiences have ranged from average to excellent. This visit was the latter. We had the Tenderloin Tips and Jaeger Schnitzel in addition to a medium priced Malbec. Everything was very good. Our waitress, Holly, was very personable and efficient. A... More

The Bavarian Inn is one of only a few authentic German/Austrian/Bavarian restaurants in the area that offer quality Bavarian cuisine. The service is quite good, atmosphere is excellent and the food is also very high quality. The setting is quite nice along the banks of the Potomac River. If you are in the area and have a desire for Bavarian... More
