This is place is always good with delicious, fresh food, ample portions, in a very fun Austrian themed setting. They have the best pizzas in town and their creative entrees are consistently very good as well. Very fun place to go with friends .

Atmosphere is very cool. The right side of the restaurant is the more casual side. The left side (separate entry) is fancy. Go to the right side! My understanding is the owner brought back wood and materials from his home town is Austria to make it authentic. Weiners are excellent, as are the other more German offerings. They also have...

We heard about Gerhard's cafe from a business associate who travels through Spartanburg quite often. He said we wouldn't be disappointed, and he was 100% right. Great decorations and separate dining experiences. There is a casual side with the bar and a lodge feel. A fine dining area with a museum type of decor. Plus, what appeared to be a... More

We enjoyed a great meal here. They have a fine dinning side requiring collared shirts and a more casual side. We ate in the fine dining side. Our server was great and offered us options on side items. Each of us got something different and they were all good. The menu was varied so there were choices for everyone. Everything... More

This is a sweet hidden gem of an European-American cuisine in the best part of Spartanburg, SC. The menu is incredible. The service is impeccable. I have eaten here frequently, and I can tell you that the food and service never fail. Erin is my favorite server. I met Mary, the owner and Executive Chef's wife the other night. Such... More

This is a great place to spend the evening - an energetic bar atmosphere and the choice of both elegant dining or a more casual atmosphere at the bar or outside in the courtyard.

Ended up at Gerhard's traveling through town. Ordered the pizza with reportedly raclette cheese ham asparagus and artichokes. Turned out to be a pizza with canned artichokes, premise crust, broccoli . Cheese tasted like mozzarella to me. Sauce was Italian. Bad mix! Wedge salad was average.

No matter what you try here you will be pleased. I had a farm plate with local Austrian specialties such a bratwurst and schnitzel. Others had either Australian sea bass or beef stroganoff. Yummy X 3 = a great meal. The beer is about $5 each and if you are on a budget this is not likely your place unless... More

Had an excellent dinner at Gerhard's two weeks ago. The place was packed on a Friday night so we opted to eat at the bar. The Mushroom Bisque was the special soup of the night and it was something like I've never eaten before. Absolutely beyond good....it was great! The entire meal was so delicious my husband and I almost... More
