We have made 2 trips to Grunauer. The first by chance, the second planned. Grunauer is in KC and we live in Nebraska 4 hours away. It is worth the drive! I had the liver pictured and it was to die for!

Went with another couple to celebrate a birthday, and was not disappointed whatsoever. The food was truly real Vienna (having visited there over ten times). The only thing missing was there were no Gosser bier!!!

The restaurant was beautiful with huge wooden ceilings and brick walls. The meal was acceptable. High priced for Jager Schnitzel with a side of red cabbage. The red cabbage was inedible as it had way too much nutmeg or cinnamon. I paid $5.00 for a...More
