We took my family here when they were visiting from Long Island. We waited a decent while, even with reservations, and the food was really slow to come out but when it did it was delicious!! We will be back one day!

We really enjoyed our visit to Schmankerl Stube. We got there for a late lunch on a Saturday, and they weren't too busy. We got a nice window table in a quiet dining room. The server was very pleasant, attentive, and helpful. We tried the Kӓseschnitzel, a breaded pork cutlet with two kinds of cheese, served with spaetzle and carrots.... More

We were exploring the Hagerstown area and I found an ad for this restaurant. We checked with the local visitors bureau and the friendly woman there told us this restaurant was the one she always chose for her birthday dinner. If we lived near by I know we would do the same. The food was amazing. Tomato soup with spinach... More

The food here is great and authentic. I spent a year in Germany and I think the food at the Bavarian restaurant was much better. If you have never eaten German cooking this would be the place to try it out.

The food is very good! Just be prepared for the bill at the end. Pros: food tasted great, great Bavarian-themed atmosphere, indoor and outdoor seating, friendly wait staff Con: price Info: this authentic Bavarian find in (what appeared to be sleepy) Hagerstown, MD, was a surprise find for us out-of-towners. The entrees were mouthwatering as were the desserts. Everything was... More

We visited the Schmankerlstube in June with our extended family - son, daughter-in-law, and 3 young teenage grandsons. This was the boys first exposure to German food and we weren't sure how they would like this type of food. Much to our surprise, they made their own choices from the menu and loved their meals. We usually choose the schnitzel... More

The food is always excellent and the drinks are authentic. The lettuce salad is great. If you order the shrimp, they come on a lettuce salad. The fried Camembert is good as well. They do not allow substitutions that are not inline with the entree sobs prepared. They have great spaetzle. The wine lantern is a wonderful drink and the... More

The Schmankerlstube is always awesome. Food great. Atmosphere very realistic and German. Best of all is Charlie Sekula. Charlie is such a wonderful host and makes you feel very special every time you walk in.

We live about 40 miles away and it is well worth the commute. Parking can be a little bit of a hassle if you don't go at the right time. There is parking down the street behind the restaurant but you have to go slow to see the small green lettered sign. We found parking along the street but we... More
