We were at this restaurant several years ago before Covid. This was our second trip to Leavenworth as my husband was hiking the PCT trail. Not only was the food really great and very reasonably priced, but the staff was so friendly and accommodating. We...came for dinner rather late in the evening and asked if we could sit outside on the rooftop area overlooking the city and the mountains. They accommodated us even though there were only a couple people sitting up there and it was getting late. From the moment we walked in the door the young man greeting us was super friendly. Recognized my husband from two days before after he got off the trail. After being seated the young man who brought our water and silverware etc. asked if we needed anything before the server came and was also super friendly and accommodating, even being as young as he was. Our waitress was Danny (or Deanna?) and she was adorable. Gave us good tips on what to order and the food was yummy. Spent a long long time talking to us even though we were the last ones up there finishing up and she probably really wanted to go home but she did not show that. They visited the table numerous times during our dinner to see if we had everything we needed, more drinks more sauces etc. etc. etc. all staff was very congenial the entire time, even as we were going out the door!More

I was surprised at how few people were inside and on the upstairs deck. It took a really long time for waiter to come see us. We placed our order and then again waited a long time for the food to arrive. The food was...not bad, but seemed to cost more than I would have liked. They should have more options on the menu, and multiple items we tried to order they were out of. The interior is really nice with wood. The server who cared for us at the end was friendly.More

Worst experience in a restaurant. They sat us at a table that was in everybody’s way. Other customers had to awkwardly step sideways to get around us. The food took forever to get to the table and when it did it was terrible. The fries...weren’t cooked through and were cold. The burger I ordered was sitting in a puddle of juices and the bun was soggy. The waiter basically ignored us all meal. We managed to finally snag him to bring us napkins and the water we ordered, he quickly brought them to the table and then took off again.More

We ended our day here, and the food was great as well as drinks. The staff was kind and the restaurant is dog friendly! This was our first time here and I couldn’t be happier with my experience!

The ambiance was nice, but that was about the only thing that was nice about this place. Service was extremely slow and the food was less than mediocre. I had one of the worst Reuben sandwiches I've even eaten and my wife's bratwurst was the...worst. The sauerkraut was really awful. And need I even tell you how disappointed I was with my beer. I lived in Germany for three years and was hoping for something a bit more authentic. So disappointed.More

Great food, awesome service. The schnitzel burger is something new I tried and it was one of the best sandwiches I have ever eaten! Outstanding service as always!

My wife had a Gustav's burger and I had the cordon blue burger. Both were great. A small fries was plenty for the two of us, and the icicle ale was crisp and refreshing. The chocolate cake was almost too rich...almost.

We went up to Leavenworth on a Friday to beat the weekend rush. There was no snow so travel was easy. Not too many people yet, and kind of a laid back atmosphere. Before we headed out we picked Gustav's because it had some ok...reviews and had no wait. I'll say it was ok. Service was good, but not super friendly or attentive. We were looking for some German food and this is not the place. There's a Bratwurst patty sandwich and I had the Pork Schnitzel "burger" . They were good but nothing memorable. I did ask for rye bread instead of pretzel bun and that was tasty. My husband had the Guztav Burger. Just a cheeseburger. Each burger was $14.50 and $13 for just the burger!! Fries were $5 or $7.50 extra!! They were not worth it. Bland and oily. Service was adequate but our table seemed to be an afterthought to see how we were doing. Soooo if you're hungry and will take "whatever" is available, then this place will satisfy. We won't be back.More

We had lunch there. It's a burger / bar place. I would think this is a good evening place for a burger and a couple beers. Good atmosphere for that. Food was ok.

A lovely outside deck with good cold beer but the service and food were average at best. Not saying don't go but temper your expectations or stick to beers and the scenery.

Service was great, food was awful. This place needs a new chef. My salad had room temperature tasteless chicken chunks, hardly any dressing, very little feta, and not a single candied pecan as described in the menu. The strawberries looked and tasted like they had...been sliced a long time ago. There were two pieces of garlic bread...room temperature, stale and tasteless. My husband's Rueben sandwich was plated sauerkraut side down so the bread was soggy. There was no point in complaining about the food....whoever fixed it wouldn't have a clue.More

They where really accommodating as we came in late just for cake, really nice staff. We ended up going back to the hotel to eat the cake by the pool and it is heavy. It is really rich, thick and almost fudge like which is...not what I was excepting.More

Friendly staff and great Reuben (hot with lots of meat and sauerkraut, cheese and 1000 island on the side), fries are hand cut, beer is cold. Eli was a great server. Good spot!
