Old building with a lot of history. Plenty of German food choices. We choose the pick 3 sampler. Way too much food for two. We enjoyed the goulash over spatzele and the beef stroganoff. The German Chocolate cake was yummy. Service was superb

If you like German food and a wonderful selection of bees then you must not miss the Gerst Haus. Noisy but still great. A converted hardware store.
