Getting better all the time!

They just opened in April and we're getting bugs worked out of system during earlier visit. Quality of food is much better but Friday night fish fry crowd slowed down the service time.

The restaurant on a Saturday night was very busy but enough wait staff kept food flowing well and never gave the feeling of hurrying diners through a meal. The atmosphere is great. Black Forest Chicken, Liver Dumpling Soup, Sauerbraten, Pork Chops, Rouladen are all good choices from the available German entrees.

Made another trip to the Black Forest this week. The food has remained very good since it opened earlier this year, but I noticed the portion was smaller than my meals this winter. Interesting? Also, ordered a Brandy Manhattan, a staple of Wisconsin dining, but felt that it was pretty weak. That's a nono in my book, especially in Northern... More

Have been visiting Three Lakes, WI for much of my life, and have driven by the Black Forest countless times, but had never eaten there. Heard there were new owners and had good recommendations from friends of my parents, so we made a visit Saturday evening for dinner. The restaurant is cute and tidy inside and out. There is a...

the food here is mostly German food and it is very good German food but they server no bread with the meal and I find that was a disappointment

So glad to see the Black Forest open under new ownership. The food is fantastic! The wait time can be long on a weekend night but it's worth the wait.

Glad they reopened. Wonderful food and they did great with the remodeling. Anything from regular burgers to German food.

There some years ago and back in town. So thought we would give the new owners a try. Went to bar. Ordered a homemade old fashion. Never saw anything or tasted anything like that before. Awful. The meal was ok. Would come back again, but would never order that drink again.

We have had dinner here 4-5 times since it reopened and have not been disappointed! Our group size varied from 2-6 people. The hostesses gave an accurate description of wait time, waitresses were professional & proficient, meals were timely, and dishes were generally above average. Sauerbraten mit Rotkraut und Knödel, “Winzerpfanne” Geschnetzeltes, German Style Pork Shank, Chops Your Way, Cod... More

We finally got a chance to dine at the renovated Black Forrest and had a wonderful evening. There were eight of us in our party and we sat at a wonderfully large round booth that was roomy and afforded everyone participation in the conversation. Our server memorized our orders (a mark of professionalism) making only a small mistake on an... More
