The food is delicious, obviously made with pride, and served with flair. The beer is excellent. The atmosphere is calm and friendly. The service is outstanding. You will not be disappointed by this remarkable little place.

“Best food in Harrisonburg!”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

Love it here, I've tried several different things and everything is so good. It is a simple setting, but the food is what you're going for. They have a little patio out front, which is just lovely to enjoy a beer with friends on a warm afternoon. Must visit!

“Decent German food and great beer at a fair price”
Reviewed April 7, 2013

The menu consists of a variety of standard German dishes. The portions are large and the food is good. They have an excellent selection of German beers on tap. Service is Friendly but slow.

“wonderful food !”
Reviewed March 22, 2013

We had a great dinner - we happened to see the sign "German Restaurant" and decided to dine there instead of where we had planned. We are so glad we did. Excellent food - large portions, well cooked, excellent flavors... service was great also! Definitely will be returning !

“Excellent food in a simple setting”
Reviewed February 9, 2013

I have now been to Black Forest twice with friends, once for lunch and once for dinner. On both occasions I had the Jagerschnitzel. It was quite delicious. The desserts wasn't quite as good the first time (the pockets are a bit doughy), but my strawberry/raspberry cake made up for it this week. They now finally have a liquor license. There were few choices, but the beer was good. The owner is very friendly and the prices quite reasonable for the very good quality of food and the good portions. I strongly recommend for visitors and locals alike.
