The Rhineland doesn't look like much from the outside. Inside is "quaint" looking like a causual café from an earlier time. But, it's clean and the staff is friendly and inviting. The real treat is the menu and the product the kitchen produces. Our family is of German descent and my parents have travelled Germany and Austria several times. My... More

Heinz and Rosie do an amazing job with this restaurant. The Reuben is excellent and so is the Jaegerschnitzel. Just go. They've been in business for over 25 years, so they must be doing something right.

Lunch was delicious here on a weekday. We had not eaten here in a couple years, and this restaurant will definitely be back on our list. My husband had the bratwurst with fried potatoes and sauerkraut at about $12. I had the best Reuben I have eaten in Independence! Tender, flavorful and served with hot German potato salad. It was...

This is a German Restaurant and the food is very good but somewhat heavy. I do love their desserts and try to stop in for coffee and some wonderful dessert. Must have a big appetite to eat a full meal!!

We went for New Year's Eve because we wanted a restaurant that wasn't having something special going on. I had the Jagerschnitzel (Hunter Schnitzel), breaded cutlet topped with creamy burgundy mushroom sauce, served with spätzle and it was wonderful. I had enough for lunch the next two days! My husband had Bratwurst Dinner, served with hot potato salad and sauerkraut.... More

Cold rolls , undercooked pork, overpriced, bland potatoes, uninspired staff and unlike any German food ever eaten. Wasted money for this meal and left hungry. TERRIBLE!

I went to this restaurant not expecting too much. It was part of the business lunch trips I had that week. I ordered the bratwurst and kraut. They sent two huge sausages and plenty of kraut. I was stuffed by the end of the meal. The food was authentic and very tasty. The wait staff was very friendly an did... More
