“Great, authentic introduction to German food!”
Reviewed December 30, 2012 via mobile

I am studying in Frankfurt, so when my boyfriend came to visit I wanted to introduce him to proper German food. This place was the best way to do that. Traditional salad, schnitzel and potatoes, you really can't go wrong. It was so tasty as well!! Such a typical German pub too with the traditional benches and coat hangers on the sides too. Definitely will go there again.

Thank Rchlyng

“Great food, great value, great atmosphere”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

Traditional dinner place, with tables for 16 (you have to share of course). Its a bit noisy, and the stools/benches are a bit hard but who cares. The service was prompt and friendly, the portions are massive (my liver and rostbraten was just great). That and a beer for <20 Euros. Nice.

“The Best Schnitzel in Frankfurt!”
Reviewed September 22, 2012

Kanonesteppel is an Apfelweinwirtschaft (Apple Wine Pub) with an excellent kitchen. We come here often as it offers simple, traditional German food at great value.

The schnitzels are huge the best I've ever tasted, the Applewine (Ebbelwoi) is good and the service, unlike many similar places, is friendly. (I walked out of the more famous Adolf Wagner's after being ignored for 30 minutes and will never go back!)

Definitely one of my top 5 restaurants in Frankfurt.

“One of the TWO BEST Schnitzel Restaurants in Frankfurt”
Reviewed August 25, 2012

having grown up in Frankfurt (now living in Menlo Park/California), my twice-yearly visits with friends and family always takes me to the authentic applewine restaurants of the southern suburb (walking distance across the Main River from downtown Frankfurt) of Sachsenhausen and a bit closer to the airport to Neu Isenburg (most great restaurants there than any other Frankfurt suburb)

Kanonesteppel offers wonderful outdoor seating which allows for mingling with locals and American business people alike. IT'S ONE OF TWO OF BEST SCHNITZEL (huge portion, you may want to split it with your partner) RESTAURANTS IN SACHSENHAUSEN (and please skip Wagner's or Gemahlte Haus, which once were at the "top" .... the food there has gone downhill over the last two years) .... the other great restaurant for wonderful authentic German food (a great atmosphere in a scenic auto-free square) is Applewein FOEHL's in NEU ISENBURG, just a short ride from the airport and a bit further southwest of Sachsenhausen

“A friendly busy Apfelwein Lokal”
Reviewed August 18, 2012

I visited on a beautiful day which may have influenced my view of this lovely bar. The outdoor Apfelwein garden was comfortably full but we found a shaded table for the seven of us.

The welcome was warm and the atmosphere was much better than the similar Germania a few doors away.

This local business has been here for over a century selling the excellent Apfelwein and not many other drinks.

I would definitely recommend a visit.
