Instead of braving the crowds Saturday night for Valentine's Day, my sweetie and I had a wonderful romantic brunch at The Bavarian Inn the Sunday after. We were led to a fantastic table with a great view of the river, and after helping ourselves to the bloody mary bar, we sampled as much of the buffet as we could make... More

We ate in the main dining room. German food isn't my favorite but my wife lived in Germany for a while, and she said her meal was right on. The beer was good and desert was better. The service was very friendly. Overall, it was a good experience at the Bavarian Inn.

I wrote a review about the Bavarian Inn in November and decided to revisit. I had dinner in the little bar downstairs. Selected the deer(venison) which, according to Ben(a highly knowledgeable man running the bar)was prepared in an unusual manner. All I know is that this dish was just great. The kitchen is creative and they can deliver. The Bavarian... More

Loved this place! Authentic German food is difficult to find in the area. The Bavarian Inn is a great find. The food was awesome and the service was impeccable. Well worth the trip from Northern Virginia.
