“Not worth your time or money”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013 via mobile

Tough to find a good, authentic German restaurant and unfortunatley this one does not measure up. We were greeted by the grumpy owner who was definately German but quite lacking in North American hospitality. Quaint and small inside with a live accordian player, but the waitress got both our order and the couple next to us wrong. Food was below average, beer was overpriced and served in small glasses. Compared to the many choices for food in this lovely town, this was a bad one. Look elsewhere.

“Authentic delicious goodness!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

This evening was our second visit to The Bavarian Haus, with many choices in Mount Dora we are so pleased that we went back! Our indulgence of Roulade and Pork Sshnitzel was perfect! The sides are amazing comfort food as well and dessert...OMG the Struedels, we had the Apple!
Just go, you will see, feel and enjoy!

“Awesome German Cuisine and Atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

My wife and I stopped for a late lunch after golf. Great food combined with a very pleasant atmosphere with friendly and knowledgable service. There is limited seating indoors but more on the outdoor patio. The food was homemade and tasty. We have never had better Apple Struedel anywhere. The Bavarian Haus definitely warrants a return trip for a full dinner.

“Local German Treasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

OMG, it is has good as the place (of the same name) in Asheville, NC! The food is authentic german and variety exceeded our expectations. And their desserts - the strudel, is to die for. It has a nice outdoor covered porch if you want to enjoy the cool weather at this beautiful time of year. The staff is very attentive and friendly. If our waistlines could afford it, we would eat there atleast once a week! HIghly recommended!

“Worth the drive.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

My wife and I were looking for a German restaurant so we looked online. We didn't know we would have to drive way out in the country, but after the lovely scenic drive, we found a jewel of a town called Mt. Dora. Limed with eateries and shops, we could have spent the day, but we were there for the German food at Bavarian Haus. The food was excellent, the decor was beautiful, and the service was world class. I would recommend it to anyone. We definitely plan to return with friends and will spread the word.
