Disappointing for us as the rotisserie spun in the window for hours whilst we waited in line on Christmas Eve. We finally got in and service was fast but the food was less than I hoped for. My pork shank was hardly edible as the skin had hardened into a rawhide around the meat. The sides served along with it... More

The touted pork hock or knuckle had meat that was dry and fatty, with a skin that was hard, not crispy, mostly inedible. Accompanying kraut, red cabbage and potato salad were pretty good. Apple strudel was overly cinnamoned, with a soggy crust. Food may be better in warmer months, when there are more customers.

King Ludwig used to be our favorite restaurant when visiting Leavenworth. Unfortunately, not anymore. When you visit a Bavarian town, roasted pork hock, German sausage and beer are must try. That is pretty much the reason we visited King Ludwig almost every time when we were in Leavenworth. Sadly, our latest visit was kind of disappointing. First of all, the... More

I ordered the sampler (the smaller one) with an assortment of different meats and side. It was great. The service quick and friendly. Definitely will be coming back

We found that 5:30 is the best time to have dinner. You beat the rush that starts around 6/6:30. We went with friends that are from Germany and they noted how authentic the food was. We were pleasantly surprised by the polka band that serenaded us, making our dining experience complete. The menu offers a wide range of options, something... More

This is a staple of Leavenworth and always pretty good. We like to order the sampler platters when with a large group because it really encompasses everything. A+ establishment

Something to do to order the schweinshaxe and have a good time with friends, but not the most flavorful food. You can usually get in here though, which makes it an appealing option on some days.

Since it's on the strip, it's definitely aimed at the tourists and since it's a sit down restaurant they can charge a lot more for cruddy food? Do yourself a favour and turn around and exit. Trust me. You might just be paying to look at the design of the place and a $4 Coke...The food was terrible. It took... More

Had this German specialty the 1st night in Leavenworth, had it the next 2 nights also!!! Unbelievably delicious, rarely found in other German restaurants anywhere..... Do not miss this!!! People were so friendly, service great, just wish the accordion music wasn't quite so loud! Will definitely come back.

I thought for sure I would get some yummy German snitzel here as I love the one with mushroom gravey and try it when and where ever I can! It was just so so . I will say the chicken and ham hocks looked to be good ! I just felt it should of been better.
