We took a day trip to French Lick while visiting Louisville and stumbled on the German Cafe after checking out Trip Advisor. I ordered the lunch special which included pork schnitzel and the best Blaukraut (red cabbage) I've ever had by far. There was a big bowl of the cabbage and I didn't think I could come close to finishing... More

I was intrigued by this restaurant, but sadly disappointed. I live in an area that was settled by German immigrants but there never seemed be authentic German restaurants in our town, so when I found this restaurant with great reviews on TripAdvisor I really wanted to try it. Maybe it was just me...but everything was so salty. Not to my... More

We dined here while staying at the French Lick Resort. The food we had was excellent and the music and decor was beautiful. I had schnitzel and my husband had sausages. Both were great and our waitress was very friendly and helpful.

Very few restaurants are making homemade fare that tastes great. This place is one of those finds. This homey place has friendly staff and very reasonable prices. We had the dinner for two and red velvet cake (delicious!). It was a great meal and we were full with food left over. Great variety of meats, cabbage, potato salad and more.... More

Was headed to the pizza place around the corner and second guessed our choice. Very happy we did! We had a sampler so to speak. A little taste of everything, and it was absolutely delightful. We will make a special trip this direction just to be able to return here.

We were big fans of the German Cafe when it was in Paoli & made the fairly long drive whenever we could. This was our 1st time at the French Lick location & it's even better than before! I had the plain schnitzel with fried potatoes & blaukraut. My husband had mushroom gravy over schnitzel & potato salad. Every dish... More

Nothing fancy and food was average, but the wait staff was great and we did enjoy ourselves. Good option for dinner in French Link.
