Description
Edelweiss German-American Restaurant is one of Chicago’s favorite German restaurants. It has been a family-owned dining destination for over 30 years. The menu features an impressive array of traditional, well-crafted German specialties along with classics like the American steak, chicken and seafood dishes. A kids menu is also available. We offer 16 beers on tap as well as a variety of craft and international beers, wine and schnapps. Our bar area is an excellent venue to watch sports and play the slot machines while enjoying our daily bar and menu specials.
