I had heard about this place from numerous folks over the years but this is my first time visiting. DW and I came here for a late lunch recently. Enjoyed some very good service and were happy with our meals. We tried the pretzel and...it was quite fresh. The variety of beers was also nice. We had the tasty bratburger and the breaded pork chops for entrees. So much food we had to take some home. That left a little bit of space for the yummy strudel that we had for dessert. Will definitely try this place again.More

Went for lunch there with my wife and Father-in-Law. We had the goulash soup pork knuckle, and strudel. It was excellent. The ambiance, service and food were great! It was very enjoyable and I will go back.

My husband and I have been going to Zum Stammtisch for many years. Unfortunately they do not take reservations for two people which is a policy we think is absurd, however we still tried our luck this week and were willing to wait BUT the...hostess (short blonde hair) completely dismissed my request to eat inside, even though I told her three times I did not want to eat outside. She basically ignored me and said the outside was warm, but this was not my concern. Also, there was an empty table sitting right in front of the restaurant but she said she needed it for a reservation. I reminded that I called for a reservation but their policy of not taking one for two people apparently left the table open for a party of four. What if I had made a reservation for four and then the other couple cancelled? Would I be allowed to sit there? RIDICULOUS. Had she been at least attentive and courteous I would not have minded, especially given that restaurants must be suffering these days. I really do not understand how a restaurant benefits from this. I am tempted not to return but will give them another chance since their food really is good. Service and courtesy certainly count too though, especially after wandering around looking for parking for 20 minutes and taking a half hour ride to get there. Remember your hostess manners Zum Stammtisch!!More

I’ve been to many cities in the world where I should have had the best German food, etc. This includes cities in Germany, Austria, and even the US. Zum Stammtisch remains the best German food restaurant I have ever visited. The sauerbraten is to die...for, along with the dumplings and Spätzle. And for dessert, you can have the delicious vanilla ice cream and raspberries. And as always, their Dunkel beer is the best. Kind of a hassle to get to using mass transit, but it’s worth it.More

This Is a classic German restaurant. The interior will send your imagination right to Bavaria and the cuisine will satisfy your palate as if you were in Munich. The portions are more than generous. It seems everyone goes home with a take home package. I've...gotten 3 meals out of my prime rib - FLintstone size!More

Most people say that the Florida Keys where I live is paradise, but one thing is missing - Zum Stammtisch with its fantastic Goulash Soup is over a thousand miles away! I first found Zum's over 20 years ago when I lived in New York,...and the food and service are as good now as they were then. After enjoying a delicious meal, you can visit the deli next door where you'll find a wide variety of German delicacies to take home, including frozen containers of Goulash and other soups. One caveat - a bowl of Goulash Soup is a meal in itself, so if you want to enjoy some of the entrees on the menu perhaps ordering a cup of the soup would be wise.More

I don’t often drink beer but I love there beer flight with dinner. Four different beers that are excellent. My husband loves the three different sausage plates, and I love the spatzle. They have all sorts of Bavarian German foods. Topping off the meal with...Black Forest cake is a treat when we are not too full. Good sized portions. Last night all four of us were so full we couldn’t even share one piece for desert. Well worth the 45 minute wait to be seated at 3 pm on a Sunday afternoon.More

I’ve been to Munich a few times and Zum Stammtisch rivals any of the restaurants there .The food was absolutely phenomenal.The veal dishes where tasty and quite flavorful and the apple strudel was the best I’ve ever had. Everyone in our large party was more...than satisfied with their meal. The service fabulous. Our servers were prompt but not overbearing and very pleasant. Finally the ambiance made me feel I was right in Bavaria. And the music was wunderbar but not too loud. Finally, the beer was authentic Hofbrau . It was a an evening not to forget. Thank youMore

We havent been here in over 15 yrs and we came for new years day dinner with the family-I have a German father in law so this place is sentimental to him. Every order was.made to perfection, and reminded us how much fun it was...to go out for a nice German meal. The service was excellent, but is was 15 yrs ago as well! Thanks for an amazing meal. My 3 boys licked their plates CLEAN!!More

It has been a long time since we had authentic German food. We've heard that this restaurant has an excellent reputation so we gave it a try. We each drove over 50 miles to get there and the trip was well worth it! My wife...and I had Sauerbraten served with Potato Dumplings and Red Cabbage. It was delicious. Our cousin had a combination Brat dish which she said was delicious as well. For dessert we had Apple Strudel and for me it was the best Apple Strudel that I ever had. I would easily go back just for the strudel alone. So we had great food with good service. Another successful Cousin's Luncheon. Thank you Zum Stammtisch!More

Unfortunately there is none. You could probably get off at Rego park station and take a taxi.
