Have eaten here twice over past year. Once in pub and once in main room. Main room is very pretty. Service was good but food on both occasions was average at best. Like diner food, not what you would expect given the reputation and the overall attractiveness of the facility.

Very nice place we stayed there when we attended a concert at the Hollywood Casino. I had no desire to stay at the casino and this place was a great location. The setting beautiful.

We went for the Sunday brunch which is not cheap but you get what you pay for and it buys you one heck of a brunch. There is so much good food that even if you took a single spoon at each station one could not sample everything. I had shrimp, scallops, oysters and caviar to go with my prime... More

I went to this restaurant corn anniversary friends, and the food was very good. The restaurant draws a lot of older visitors and you can see that it has been a staple for a very long time in the community. The food Is American and German and the brunch buffet that we went to was a lot of fun.

We have eaten at the Bavarian Inn on several occasions, and it is interesting that it has met our expectations each time when they were quite different: First, was a casual lunch with kids and grandkids full of gumption. We were seated at a long table in a place where we could all relax and enjoy a casual meal without... More
