The hottest night of the year....well maybe not, but close and the servers were still upbeat and friendly. There's a lot of hired help and they are quick, efficient and of good humor. The food is okay....nothing special and unfortunately mine made me sick....I didn't know it had horseradish..... My husband had the smoked pork which he said was ok.... More

We keep coming back, every time our travels bring us near Jacksonville. It's a popular place for locals too. They specialize in German food. We usually go for the Schnitzel with a berry sauce or mushrooms. It's pretty moist and not thin and tough like some "cardboard" we've had elsewhere. The beer selection is very good too. Front deck is... More

Frau Kemmling serves up good, traditional German fare with an organic twist. Good service and a comfortable setting. We tried to traditional beer with pretzels and cheese sauce, german brats, kraut and potato salad. It was very good.

There are several very good restaurants in Jacksonville. Frau Kemmling is not on my list. Their beer selection is terrible for a "Brewhaus" and their food is not the kind of authentic German food I know. Pass of Frau for much better choices when in Jacksonville.

My husband and I had dinner at this charming restaurant. Maybe I ordered the wrong thing. My tender pork roast with mushroom sauce (which had little tough pieces) was the best part. The red cabbage side was good but the potato pancakes were tough, flat & manufactured looking (as if they came packaged, frozen) and flavorless (unlike any I'd ever... More

We lived in Germany for 7 years and by far, this is the best German-style food we have eaten outside of Germany! I would high recommend anyone who has a craving for German food and drink to dine at Frau Kemmling's. Service and ambiance was terrific, also.

We spent 7-8 years living in Germany but since returning to US & traveling from coast-to-coast we could not find a German restaurant that was worth a pfennig. But Frau Kemmling's is the Real Thing. I would recommend anything on the menu, but most especially the späztle.

If you're in Jacksonville you must visit this restaurant, entertainment venue. This was the original 1800's grade school to high school building which has kept it original exterior character but transformed itself into an expansive restaurant/entertainment venue. We enjoyed the food but the secret place is the back patio during the summer. They have live music on the back patio... More

Having visited the Visitor's Center in Medford Oregon, we were told about a quaint little town a few miles south of Medford called Jacksonville. My husband and I love German food and when we asked about restaurant in the area, Frau Kemmling's Schoolhaus Brewhaus was mentioned , along with history about the restaurant! The building had served as a school... More
