“Forget it, rude and unfriendly!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

It was a nice day so we sat at one of the tables outside to have a snack, we waited for ages and had to go inside to attract the waiter's attention. I ordered one beer for me and a slice of cake for my wife. After a long while the waiter brought out two slices of cake, when I advised that I only ordered one slice of cake, he snatched the other plate away, muttering something under his breath. Well mate, same to you! Another couple who sat down after us also had to wait ages to be served. The place wasn't that busy, and now we know why. It seems like this place is only interested in one off tourist visits given its location next to the main town square. Plenty of much better places nearby. Remember the name "Baumeisterhaus" and don't go there!

“Hurried Dining Experience”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

A hurried experience would best describe our visit. The food was rushed out, and we were given our check as we ate (very untypical of the region). The food was very bland, just unfreeze, heat, and serve! Décor was interesting, lots of antlers of some small animal. They do take credit cards though…

“better to stay out”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

Baumeisterhaus restaurant is located at the entrance to main square in Rothenburg. Very nice building itself and interestingly looking restaurant extended to an inner atrium. My food was a typical bavarian dish and was good. My wife had some fried potato packets with vegetable salad. Salad did not look fresh so we pointed it out to the waiter. He appologized and brought the owner. Owner did not speak much English and we do not understand German, but we could clearly see how rud he was. He did not aknowledge our complaint at all, so we just give it up. It certainly left a bad taste in our mouth. and spoiled memoried of this beautiful town.

“Great dining experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

Recently ate here and had a great experience. Not sure why this restaurant isn't rated higher. Thought food was very good, plentiful, very reasonably priced for dinner. Historic dining room feel provided excellent environment. For lunch, however, menu is the same (no special lunch menu) and pricing is more than we typically spend for lunch. Had the jagerschnitzel; wife had the schnitzel. They let us sub different sides and dinner came with a nice salad. Found this to be one of our better dining experiences in Rothenburg.

“Nice place for cake and coffee”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012

This restaurant is in a beautiful historic building very close to Marktplatz, and the interior is decorated with hunting trophies. At the entrance there is an area selling cakes, which can be purchased to take away, or eaten with coffee in the restaurant, like we did. The atmosphere was quite pleasant, and the service was good. The cakes were excellent, but a little expensive.
