“Excellent place to eat”
Reviewed September 17, 2013

Great food with mixture of Austrian/German and Southern comfort foods. Food was well prepared and tasty. The fried grits cakes were a real treat. Several styles of eating areas from formal dining to dim wood paneled pub to open airy area and an outdoor patio. Service was great. Wide selection of wines and beers. A little pricey but well worth it! Also has a large room that is used for corporate or other events.

“Taste of Austria in SC?!”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

Atmosphere is very authentic and lovely. Menu has plenty of choices (few items were unfamiliar) so we had to ask... but always willing to try new things! Drink specials were tasty if not pretty. Meal was delicious and huge helping. We had plenty to take home. Desserts were awesome looking on the display tray but the actually deliver was incredible!!! Both appealing to admire and yummy to eat. This was actually our third visit. First visit we chose the bar seating and loved the casual, neighborhood meeting place feel. Second visit we chose the formal dining room. Very nice for a special occasion and special service. This visit we chose the outside area and it was perfect for a summer evening. Fans created just enough air movement and the sun sets across the building so we were in the shade. Loved it and can't wait for another opportunity to visit. Prices are high but worth it for special nights out.

“Wonderful food and great atmosphere!”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

What ever age you are, Gerhard's Cafe in Spartanburg, South Carolina is the place to go for a delicious meal. Gerhard caters to everyone, the service is excellent, the owners and waiters are always friendly and efficient. The restaurant has a large and friendly bar area with many different European beers and wines. There are many tables available for small parties and big groups, you can sit inside or out. The meals range from delicious sashimi tuna to milk fed veal and spaetzle. The Austrian touch is obvious, the decor being especially authentic. You must try the apple strudel, the best ever!!

“A restaurant with a notable wine list”
Reviewed April 7, 2013

We ate a Gerhard's for the first time. The Vienna side has a certain elegance and the service is very good. The wine list has a very good range of selections and is much better priced than most upscale restaurants. We had a gumbo soup special that was very tangy and well done. The other apps were not a spicey as expected, but it seems that the crowd tended to be a bit older and may not appreciate lots of spice. Otherwise the apps were well prepared and presented. The entrees were good and well prepared. The desserts were exceptional. We would come back for the desserts alone. We looked on the other side of the restaurant to what appears to be a beergarten setting that is nicely appointed. There is also outside seating for warmer weather. We will come back again to try other dishes, but will definitely save room for dessert.
