We really enjoyed the schnitzel. Slightly thick and very juicy/moist. Desserts were off the charts. You can absolutely tell that everything is carefully homemade. The soup (chicken paprika?) was literally to die for.

The Gasthaus German Restaurant was wonderful! We both had the sauerbraten with spatzle and I also had the potato soup. Both were delicious. The meat was easy to cut with a fork and tasted fantastic. As many have reported, the soup was to die for. Bottled beer and wine are also available. The service couldn't have been better. As might... More

Gasthaus in Louisville, Ky is a little restaurant but has a good flavor. Inside is a little dining area with some in little house style settings – watch you noggin. Its small so reservations will be imperative on week-ends. Ok the apparel is a little kitschy and the teddy bears on one house stared at me as I ate. I... More

We, two European couples (German, Dutch and Greek) had dinner here. Best German Restaurant and German food that we have had in our 28 Years living in the USA. From the atmosphere to the service to the food just one word amazing. Don't miss this gem of a restaurant at your next visit to Louisville, KY.

Gasthaus is one of my all time favorite restaurants. The service is always excellent and the food can't be beat. The desserts are delicious if we save room for them. Reservations are a must no matter how small or large your party is. They do not open until 5:00 pm. This is definitely worth your time.

Easily the best german food I have had since visiting Berlin. Sauces were amazing which really made the meat stand out. Might be one of the better dessert places in Louisville. All the food is home made and they take pride in their food and service. Family run restaurant. Need reservations. One of the best restaurants in Louisville.

The ingredients were not quality . they need to import. As are on vacation from Orlando. We enjoy the Hollarbach Wiow Tree Cafe which has its own German grocery store. We also love Epcot's German pavilion. So we were disappointed, especially because the prices were steep.

This is the second time that I have eaten at Gasthaus but the first time since I started using Trip Advisor. It is a restaurant that advertises German fare which is outside my comfort level but I was starveling with a group and this was their choice. The ambience definitely makes you feel like you have stepped into Germany. Right... More

They are only open from 6 PM to 930 PM Tuesday through Saturday. There are 2 sittings with only 16 tables. Reservations are usually a must. They do have takeout and you can call in the afternoon to order. The atmosphere is totally German. The on-site owners are German. The food is as good or better than any German restaurant... More

VERY authentic (let's call it GENUINE) German cuisine, obviously prepared by people who know and appreciate the same. Family-run business with the most accommodating staff. The owner managed to fit us in despite lack of reservation, but I would recommend making reservations so as to not miss this experience.
