“Great beer, delicious food and friendly/ attentive service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

We came here to eat after a wonderful 3 hour visit with family to Schloss Schwetzingen. We were 2 grandparents, 2 parents, and 5 (precious) grandchildren - 9 hungry travelers. It was a bit breezy outside, so we went inside to be seated - we were in-between the lunch and dinner times with only a few other couples. In short order, we assisted the staff with putting tables together for a family dinner. Grandpa & I were visiting and couldn't wait for REAL German dark beer - it was everything the resident family had said it was. The wait staff were wonderful with the children, providing them with small coloring books. The food was delicious, hot and prepared exactly as requested. We agree with the other review about the potato salad and the Texas Burger, and my veal was extraordinary. Desserts all around, pictures, with an impromptu history about the restaurant and the brewery operation completed our German eating experience. If there was a higher rating for anything, we would give it to the staff. We understand it was a quiet time period, but we were given the feeling that we had been invited into their home to share our family meal with them. Two family groups went visiting the resident family members at other times in the past year, and each family group enjoyed the same great food, beer and service. They are a true example of the historical European innkeepers whose philosophy underscores "old world elegance and service " to visitors.

“So-so food, world-class beer: Prost!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

We stumbled on this place more or less by chance after visiting the gardens of Schloss Schwetzingen. The locals told me that this restaurant happens to be one of the well-known breweries in this area including the famous city of Heidelberg, so the expectations were set high.

While the service on the pavement was effective, the food was less than satisfactory. The herring (Matjesfilets nach Hausfrauen-Art) was full of bones with a rancid sauce and burnt potatoes. The local 'pizza' (Flammkuchen) was OK, but rather salty. Much better was the Apfelstrudel that we had for dessert.

In contrast with the average food, the beer, both the blond (Heller Ritter) as well as the dark beer (Schwarzer Ritter) were very tasty with a long aftertaste. Definitely one of the best beers I know and a reference for the time being.

In a word: Prost!

“Solid German food, great draft beer”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013 via mobile

Went to Zum Ritter twice while in Heidelberg for 3 days. Good solid German food, but great beer! Had the draft dunkle (dark) beer and the pils...both were excellent. the Potato salad was delicious and sitting outside on a beautiful summer evening was a wonderful way to complete my stay!

“Great food, beer and atmosphere!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

The Texas Burger is delicious and good-sized! This place is located right in front of the palace with lots of tables inside and out. Our waitress was fun and took good care of us. It wasn't the busy time of day so we enjoyed looking around at the décor - a casual, interesting place.

“Best place for a spring day in Schwetzinger”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

The location of this Brauhaus is located right in the man square which is great for people watching and the parade of car that pass by on aweekend afternoon. The food selection offers a broad selection of traditional dinners as well as lighter fare. I also found the service adequate for what can be a busy place.
Sunday afternoon is a wonderful time to go.
