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...

We liked the availability of a reservation. We could get seating pretty much any time. The staff were all very professional and pleasant. They were very helpful in making some recommendations. The waitress heard us discussing having theater tickets and helped us to complete service on time. She also willingly split a dessert for two of us and consistently was... More

I had lunch at the pool and breakfast on the patio. The menu was interesting and the food was delicious. The homemade biscuits at breakfast were a 10. The pool has a good selection of beers to choose from and from the looks of it people were loving their specialty cocktails. Only thing better would be a swim up bar!

We stayed in the hotel for a weekend while we attended the theater festival in Shephardstown. The food was fine, but nothing special. The room is quiet and the large windows give a nice view.

This inn/hotel has an authentic German menu. We ate outside. The wines are great and the hotel, which is in large separate buildings, is extensive with a lovely swimming pool looking over the river.
