Authentic German Food in an old fashioned setting

I have been to this restaurant twice. Both times, the service was excellent and the German dishes were great. Their menu is not diverse but what they serve is high quality. You do not feel like you are in a "Chain" restaurant. There is a children's menu. Their Black Forest Cake is a local favorite.

I grew up in a German family and love Eastern European food. I have always wanted to go to Edelweiss. We drive through Staunton several times a year but just never seem to make it there. Tonight was the night! Service was excellent and the place has a little quirky charm. While the overall experience wasn't bad, it wasn't amazing... More

This is one of my favorite restaurants to eat at. The decoration is very authentic and I like the atmosphere of the place. My personal favorite is the Jaeger Schnitzel! The beer here is exceptional. The food is served family style and you will not leave here hungry. If you are in the area stop by and enjoy some German... More

Stopped at Edelweiss based on TripAdvisor reviews while driving through the area. Having lived in Germany I was more than disappointed with my meal. That being said, the food wasn't horrible and they offer a gluten free menu. My husband enjoyed his German beer and many of the side dishes. Unfortunately, we would not return.

We were looking for something different than the standard "big box restaurant" and this filled the bill. It was just off the highway. The food was very good and served quickly and hot. It was a great stop for us!

This is a fun restaurant in a log building. The good German food served with family style sides: German cabbage, green beans and spätzle (Black Forest style noodles). A selection of German wines and an extensive selection of German beers. Live music Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday evenings. Fantastic homemade deserts. We love to stop by when we are in the... More

It was getting late and we were hungry. Instead of fast food, we wanted something healthier. We decided to try Edelweiss because we both like German food. Despite arriving shortly before closing, we were greeted with enthusiasm. We ordered Wiener Schnitzel and Rahm Schnitzel. Both were on par with the best we have had traveling in Europe. They were accompanied... More

Simply the best. We can't pass this restaurant up and plan our trips so we can stop here. The food is wonderful as is the atmosphere and service. This time we had sauerbraten. Yummy. And as always we needed extra of the red cabbage (veggies served family style).

We got stuck in traffic on 81 and decided to give this place ago. Upon entering we loved the cozy log cabin feel. We were even more pleased when we were served yummy German good and beer, all very authentic from the Black Forest Region. Service was prompt and friendly. After relaxing, we agreed it felt like a mini escape... More

We stopped for lunch. The knackwurst and jagerstizel were excellent. Comes with red and a white cabbage, spatzel and green beans family style. Real German beers on tap.
