We have loved this restaurant and property for years and enjoying returning on our visits here. So much so, that when we had a rough experience dining on the patio last Wednesday night, we didn't hesitate too much taking our family there the following week, big mistake. First, last week 7/11, we had reservations on the patio, were on time,... More

Dear Valued Guest, Thank you for your feedback. I whole-heartedly apologize for the delay in service on your recent visits. Theater season along with a large amount of guests arriving without reservations has caused us to be even busier than expected. Combined with the implementation of a new computer system at a rather inopportune time, we have faced a few... More

We have eaten lunch here many times and have always gotten good food. The restaurant has many German dishes that are well prepared. The dining room is beautiful as is the view seen through the panoramic windows.

very nice atmosphere and very clean. Food was excellent including desert. It is a little pricey but it is an upscale restaurant. Waitress was above average but not exceptional.

Classic German food, generous portions, charming dining nooks and large, well lit areas, reminds me of being back along the Rhine, had favorite sauerbraten and great dry Riesling...perfect eggs Benedict and charming server at breakfast who kept the coffee coming

the Bavarian Inn is a long standing tradition in the eastern panhandle of WV. It's menu, especially it's Sunday brunch, is quite extensive. It is quite expensive but a nice place for a special occasion.

I ate at the downstairs restaurant and it was pretty good. My mom is from Germany and I grew up on German food and it's pretty authentic but to be honest I like my mom's better :-) but still very good. They have a lot of German beers and wines. Even the pub menu is pretty expensive.

We stopped here as we were traveling through on the C&O trail. It is one of my father in laws favorite places to eat. The food was wonderful but 2+ hours for lunch was a bit slow and frustrating.

We ate outside on a Sunday night 4th of July weekend. Nice sitting outside as it was not too hot that night. Nice patio with a distant view of the Potomac. I noticed citronella tiki torches but they weren't on. Several flies and bugs so it would have been nice have. Our server Anna was very nice and sweet but... More

We've been coming to the Bavarian Inn dining room and rathskeller on and off for several years whenever we have something special to celebrate as the food is consistently excellent and the ambience welcoming and pleasant. Tonight we started with drinks in the cozy basement rathskeller served by a highly competent and friendly bartender. We then went upstairs to the... More

My wife lived in Germany until she was 17 years old and we like to try European restaurants, when we can, to see how they compare to what she remembers. The Bavarian Inn did very well. We sat in the formal dining room with a nice window seat and a view of the grounds. Chelsea waited on us and we... More
