“Authentic Bavarian cuisine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2012

My husband and I had eaten here before but first time inside. Beautiful, HUGE logs and beams w/ interesting antiques and a gigantic old (working) tiled wood burning heater. Food is very good. My husband ordered the Sausage Trio and I had Weinerschnitzel that covered the plate. Tender, cooked perfectly, served hot. Our server was efficient, a bit aloof at first but warmed up. Neither of us could finish our most generous meals but we did make room for their homemade Apple Strudel which was as authentic as any we tasted in Germany, Austria or Switzerland. Dinner prices a bit high but so is the quality and, the cost to run an establishment in that location is no doubt steep. I can't imagine it not appealing to skiers and snow bunnies. Would suggest calling in the summer as their hours can be sporadic.

“The Bavarian a Pleasure”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2012

Hard to get to by four wheel drive or ski lift only. Food and service was excellent. Outside dining on Bavarian motif tablecloth. Had triple sausage medley. Very tasty. Route to restaurant very picturesque.

“great place, a place you will not forget”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2012

The best views in New Mexico, Real German food that is prepared very well and great beers. Best place in country to have a beer and snack/lunch after a easy hike to Williams Lake. Summer is beautiful and best place to eat during Ski season. Can snow shoe to Williams lake in winter. Best half day hike ever.

“Great German beer, food eh...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2012

This is a great place to grab a German brew up on the ski hill. Their food isn't good. If I order anything anymore, it's the soup, otherwise their food is over priced and not tasty. Overall, it's a nice place to tan and have a stein of tasty brew.
