Great Reuben!

Met a group of friends here recently for lunch. I really enjoyed the reuben sandwich, absolutely delicious. The restaurant definitely has that old world feel! Worth your stop!

Enjoyed the German food. The place is small but the food is good. On the weekend there is music provided by a couple which is very nice.

This is a restaurant off the Independence Square. Not elegant interior, but fantastic to the palate. I had a chicken with a white sauce that was smooth and memorable. Perhaps the best red cabbage I have ever tasted. A good wine list and service that was excellent. I wanted to try more entrees, but...

The atmosphere seemed very authentic and I felt like I was traveling through Austria somewhere in a small town and stopping off for a bite to eat. High ceilings with bas relief and an old world feel made the experience sweet. The sauerkraut was out of this world authentic...not the vinegar laden stuff we buy in a jar. The Burger... More

Even the signs in the restrooms are in German... Four of us stopped for casual lunch before going to Truman Library and totally enjoyed. NOT fast food so allow time to enjoy... We really appreciate the fact that there is plenty of space between tables allowing good conversation. Try a side dish of spatzle (small round noodles made from eggs,... More

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
