This hidden gem is the best German cuisine that you'll find in Louisville. The food is all homemade by a German family that owns the restaurant, and the amazing bakery desserts are made fresh each morning. I would definitely recommend the cream of potato soup and the sauerbraten with spaetezel. The portions are generous and you never leave hungry! The... More

First, make a reservation! We have tried to go on several occasions, spontaneously, it won't happen. The food is just incredible and authentic. It's pretty heavy, but for a treat, it can't be beat!

This was such a worthwhile visit to see good management at work, great German food (including great desserts), a fun inside atmosphere, and a hard working operation. We believe this restaurant is underrated in TripAdvisor.

If you are looking for authentic German food, have à meal here. My meal was wonderful and my four guests were equally impressed. I had snitzel a La Holstein and it was a great compilation of a fried veal snitzel with two sunny side up eggs garnished with capers and anchovies. The desserts are made in house and are exquisite.... More

Food here is good. Servers are prompt and not intrusive. Call ahead as this is a small place and you simply cannot get in on the weekends without a reservation. Hostess could be friendlier and more attentive....seems not to care at all how long you wait. Have gone here for years but on a recent visit noticed that servers do... More

I can't say enough good things about this restaurant! My family has been going to this restaurant, which is just around the corner from our house, since we moved here. Anna Marie the owner is the best! The wait staff she recruits is normally from Germany or another country in Europe. They are very friendly and knowledgeable about any questions... More

The shop was amazing and the food was great also. Too many selections but we selected the sauerbraten and red cabbage. It was great with so much tender meat. Save room for desserts. Home made and tasted great. We will be back.

Visited this restaurant for dinner with two other family members. The service was great, the atmosphere was homey and pleasant. The food was excellent. I had not visited an authentic German restaurant for years and the Gasthaus was a really pleasant experience. Each of us had a full course meal with desserts and paid in the range of $110.00.
