Nice atmosphere

Was impressed with the interior of the restaurant, set up quite nicely. The food was good and so was the beer with a good selection on offer. Service was quick and staff friendly!

It is the deceit that I can't get over! The Chef who plated my over cooked, stiff as a board, Salmon and old, inedible, woody Arugula stalks tonight must have known that he/she was serving substandard food but sent it out anyway. Unbelievable!

Went here for lunch based on Tripadvisor reviews. Not crowded at all. We weren't real hungry so we split the two sausage entree. Waitress recommended Bier brat and Boar sausage. They split the order in the kitchen for us. There was plenty of food as the sausages came with a really good potato salad, red cabbage and sauerkraut. Both sausages... More

They did a great job here with the attractive wooden decor with fireplace that has the nice personal German flavor. A good variety of schnitzel and nice import beer selection. A little pricy, but nice change of pace from the standard restaurant fare.

Gustav's stands out as a great place to go for unique food offerings in the area. We usually start off with the fondue and then move on to sausages and schnitzel. Even though it is a large restaurant, it is relatively easy to hear one another speak and to not feel too crowded. The service has always been top notch... More

Happy hour is phenomenal! It changes on occasion to keep it fresh. Regular menu has plenty of options, potatoe pancakes, fondu, brats... And the beer menu is amazing. Good for big groups.

My husband and I are on this 'try new places' kick, so we decided to try this place. I am so happy we did. We got the pretzel fondue which was amazing. I had the spatzle alfredo, which was fantastic. I love pasta's that are buttery and cheesy and this was just that. My husband got the bratwurst and a... More

I've been going to Gustav's for awhile, but I haven't been back in a long time. One too many menu changes for me! This is the place we went for happy hour burgers when our daughter was little, but once the menu changed and took them away there was no need for us to go back. The quality of the... More

We enjoyed our experience at Gustav's. The food was great but a bit expensive. The waitstaff was friendly and attentive and the restaurant was very clean. Fun experience.

Went here for Mother's Day Brunch Buffet. It was a bit pricey, but the food was excellent. Good variety of breakfast and lunch items, including German specialties. Service is always excellent when we eat here, and it was on Mother's Day as well. The only negative was that the location of the buffet caused a lot of congestion and extra... More
