Dined at the Inn's Ratskellar

The food was fantastic. I had NY strip with amazing spinach and potato sides, my husband had the surf and turf. So good and service was lovely.

The setting is very nice, the staff is friendly. The German food is decidedly average. Stay away from the leaden potato dumplings. The place is convenient to nearby Harper's Ferry and Antietam but for good eats, go downtown.

We ate at the inn on two separate occasions both in the evening. I had Wiener schnitzel on one occasion and pork chops on the other. My partner had a portobello mushroom for the first meal and fish for the second visit. We were both overwhelmed with the meals as they were perfectly done. Preparation was perfect , the tenderness...

Came with my wife on an unplanned visit. We started weekend just driving and ended up in shepardstown. Decided to get a room and grab dinner. Upon checking in it had an old world musty smell. Felt like we were back in the 50's. This place was probably very cool back then. The grounds were clean and neat. Because we... More

Dear Josiah H, I'm sorry you did not care for your stay. We usually receive rave reviews about the menu items mentioned. In fact, those two items were so popular with our Seafood Festival menu that we kept them on for our Summer menu. I will mention this to the chef, and see what possibly could have occurred. Hopefully a... More

Treated friends to the wine, dinner overnight package. Had attended a wine dinner 1 1/2 years ago and the meal was outstanding. Last night was disappointing. Plated hors d'hoevres as opposed to buffet like the first, so you had no choices. Lobster bisque good flavor but croquet in soup was spongy, weird. Meat dishes were overlooked (ok, it's a German...

The Bavarian Sauerbraten, Beef Roast marinated in Vinegar and Spice Red Wine Ginger Sauce, Potato Dumpling and Red Cabbage (DF) has an overpowering vinegar taste, and the potato dumpling texture and flavor was definitely not what I experienced throughout Germany, chalky and not moist.
