About
Established in 2013. The Bavarian Bistro and Bar was founded in 2013 in Leavenworth, WA by the ownership team of Carl and Chef Gavin Evans, father and son, and business partners. After taking ownership, much time was invested to fine tune the true German style menu that is served in the bistro side of the restaurant. The next stage, the Bavarian Bar, was completed on September 12th, 2013. Here they feature a full bar, specialty cocktails made in the classic style, many with an updated twist. In addition, a unique tapas style menu is featured that is a blend of German, Northwest, and International styles of cuisine. We also offer two televisions, one quite large and Happy Hour, Monday thru Friday,

Came here for dinner on our night in Leavenworth. Being that I lived in Germany growing up I was excited for some yummy German food. Two of us got the jaeger schnitzel and two got burgers. The burgers were the favorite. The schnitzel was just...ok, a little greasy. The mushroom gravy was delicious though. The side dishes left a lot to be desired for. Just ok, won’t be back.More

The best burgers we have ever eaten! Simple delicious and the service of our waiter was great. I don't know if I would be back to this cozy small beautiful town because I live far away (I wish to return) but I definitely recommend this...restaurant!More

Took the family out for a burger and it was great. This place is clean with great service. The food was fresh and hot. We had a bacon cheeseburger 🍔 it was a large amount of food, but it was good. The nice thing was...we were seated quickly. We will be returning!More

Had a negative experience with a takeaway food order. What I paid for was mistakenly combined with my friend's order and given to him, while I was left waiting with an explicit explanation it was my friend's order only and that I needed to wait...for mine. After 20 minutes, I decided to get inside and check. It took a waiter a really long time to figure out the status and to promise me to call for a manager. I knew that life happens and the food in the venue was good. But their reaction to my problem was unprofessional. I was in a hurry and had to give up and leave after waiting for like 30 minutes. The manager never showed up. Later, being in another city, my friend found my meals among his ones. However, the order missed a strudel. Such a mess. And it didn't seem to be a rush hour then.More

Wish we would have found this on day one! We had the Obatzda appetizer. Very different, authentic taste. It was fun to try. We had the Brandy Peach Burger (with a vegi patty) and it was AMAZING!!!! Ella was our server and she was super...sweet and attentive. Can’t wait to come again!More

Was welcomed by 30 minute wait from hostess, said something to passing waitress, seated within 5 min, great service after and waitress received 30% tip. Wanted to have an another cocktail and didn't want to keep table from other costumers from having a table so...ordered to go cocktails with them telling us we could go outside in the street area and sit and enjoy them, upon asking hostess outside for a seat she said 25 minute wait with obviously 6-9 tables open. There was no reason given why we were not seated to have our cocktails given so many open tables other then tables were reserved. Pointing out that we had just bought 2 beverages from there bar inside with them saying we could go out and sit and enjoy our beverage!More

The blackberry jalapeño burger was incredible. My fiancé had the caprese burger and she really enjoyed it and she’s not typically one to finish a whole burger! Service was great, everyone was professional and friendly and made our visit great!

We were over from Scotland in September and got a table without waiting. If you're dead set on going here I'd make a reservation though.
