A small unique place. We stopped in just for dessert. Everything was delightful and very tasty. I also enjoyed some coffee along with mine. I highly recommend venturing to this little taste of Germany in Des Moines, IA.

I visit this restaurant quite often. They never disappoint! I tried most of the items on the menu, had breakfast, lunch and dinner on multiple occasions there. I absolutely love their Goulash, Wiener Schnitzel, Trout and their signature salad. Strudl House also serves a variety...More
