Visited the Bavarian Chef after a few positive reviews from locals we spoke with during our weekend stay. All recommendations mentioned large portions, authentic offerings and an overall memorable experience. All of the aforementioned were "right on target". The server was knowledgeable, prompt, courteous, available when needed. The food was delicious, proper temperature and brought back memories of my days... More

Food is so good and very filling especially the pork chops or sausage plates. Deaserts are Delilah - love the apple pie one. This place is great for couples and/ or families and special occasions. Waitresses in costume. Make reservations or there will be a long wait.
