For me, the German Butcher is very close to an Italian Salumeria in that not only do they sell fine meats, they have a great selection of other prepared foods, salads, packaged items and desserts. I have yet to go there to find the parking lot just short of full. Inside, take a number and the line moves quickly while... More

The shop is filled with choices, if you cook from the ingredients or want it ready to place in the oven. Lots of tasty options ... and the BEST homemade weiners!!

An excellent place to eat or pick up meats, prepared foods, cold cuts or German imported items. Being German I love to go there and buy authentic German foods and items. Guten Appetit!

Good assortment to choose from and the associatessential v ery helpful. But way overpriced, so I might go there for a special occasion. I would like to go ever week. But I can marinate any piece of meat and have it come out great. $$$$$$$

I've been a customer at the German Butcher Shop for perhaps 20 years. There has never been a time I or my family have been disappointed in the quality & consistency of their products. Whether eating in or purchasing meats or fish to cook at home the food is of excellent quality. The service is very competent & friendly &... More

This is my go-to place for meats and cold cuts and breads and pie! It gets a little crowded but everyone is friendly and the staff has efficiency down to a science. Best butcher for miles around with great homemade sausages and hot dogs for the grill along with the steaks, chops and chickens! If you don't see it, ask... More

Great service - friendly and professional! The prepared items are divine! Had the crab cakes -- wow -- all crab and not much 'cake' -- large pieces of... More

The butcher shop is excellent and so are some of the prepared foods. I would stay away from the Italian dishes. Try the smoked or brined pork chops and the steak rubs are great.

We do not buy or meets in supermarkets. We buy or meats at the forking River German butcher and have done so for the last five or six years. Very high quality beef, pork, chicken, turkey and lamb. What we enjoy the most is the extremely large selection in all products Karen categories as well as their homemade salads, sausages,... More
