We visited the Bavarian Inn Dining Room for lunch. Though the dining room was not overflowing with guests, it took a good while to get our menus. Once that obstacle was overcome, husband decided on the sausage sampler and a Cesar Salad while I ordered the crab cake from our somewhat flustered waitress who appeared to be new to the... More

While the setting is beautiful, the large room lacked any intimacy. Our waiter took our orders but seemed to be very busy and never really came back to see how things were going. My three friends thought their food just okay, but over-priced. The sauerbraten my friend had was not up to par. My shepherd's pie was okay, but overpriced... More

.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

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.
