We both had Beef rouladin, and it was very very good. I have been to many German restaurants in the Twin City area, and this surpassed all of them for its food. It was very busy on a Sunday night and they did not take reservations. We had to wait an hour but the food was worth it.

Highly recommend! The atmosphere and food here are both great! It's like a little German chateau with an American flare. There are big booths and big tables. Tables are spread far enough apart that you enjoy your own conversation. They have a flight of all the beers on tap for $1 each, which was extremely reasonable. The other drinks we... More

My husband and I finally got around to eating at this restaurant. Although it's a German restaurant, I'm ashamed to say I didn't get a german dish(even though I'm german)! I'm always a sucker for ribeye dinners when they're on the menu, which was very, very good. The ribeye was a little fatty but I'm one of those people that... More

We just love all the choices/selections on the menu at Black Forest. We have never been disapointed with the food quality, in fact most often delighted. The German food it authentic and taste great. The drinks are very good also.

A gem in the North woods. Just happened to stop and we were blown away by the food, waitstaff, ambiance. Real food prepared on site. Delicious and attractively presented. Everything one could wish for in a restaurant, and then some ( including good coffee). We are telling all of our family and friends; will definitely stop again on our way... More

common tradition in Wisconsin is Friday night fish fry. Years ago it would be perch or cod but now people want salmon or other better white fish. Food here was great. we both had the salmon and I ordered my favorite boiled red cabbage as a side. both were delicious! Try it!

We were there on a Saturday evening. The bartender was pleasant but the drinks were overpriced. We were not hungry for German food but were told by the waitress that the pasta was delicious. We both had pasta and the portions were small and nothing spectacular. The salad was fresh but also very small. They don't serve any dinner rolls... More

The Black Forest lives up to it's name in specializing in German food. On this visit, I had the saurbraten ($21.95), served with dumplings and red cabbage, and my wife had the black forest (veal) schnitzel ($22.95) which came with red cabbage and spaetzle. All were authentically German (and I know, having grown up in a German family and enjoying... More

My wife and I have always struggled to find reliable places for date nights when we visit Three Lakes. Three years ago we found The Blue Heron and were very happy. But this year we wanted something different and everyone we ran into said we had to try the newly reopened Black Forest Pub & Grille. Five years ago, when... More

Get there early! The line forms early on a Friday nigh-- and rightfully so. This establishment offers a wide variety of dishes... from healthy to decadent... and the service is genuinely friendly. Super fresh salad greens... Steak grilled to order. Nice beer selection, too. Don't pass on desert! Mocha creme brûlée... incredibly delicious!
