“Great food”
Reviewed April 25, 2014 via mobile

Took my wife here for anniversary dinner. To say it was great would be an understatement.
Crystal, our server, was very knowledgeable about the menu. So much so that we went with the Jaeger Schnitzel and was not disappointed.
That, along with a stein of German Octoberfest, you won't go wrong.

“Dinner at the Rathskeller @ the Bavarian Inn”
Reviewed April 23, 2014

This was quite a nice meal. Low key and very inviting. the meal was hearty and the sounds of the place made it come alive. the place was full when we were there and the service was very attentive even with a small (2 I think) Wait staff. We will be back for this experience.

Dear Valued Guest,
Thank you for your review. We are so happy your Rathskellar dining experience was enjoyable. We offer the same menu here, as in our fine dining area, but just a bit more casual. It truly has become the most popular spot. We hope to share many more great meals with you in the future.
Sincerely,
The Asam Family

“Inside and out, German style”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

The Bavarian Inn is not a fooler. If you like the style as you see it dominating the view crossing the bridge over the Potomac, you will enjoy a meal there. The food, the ambiance..the wait staff in cute little costumes...all German.
I have had many meals here over the years, but only when dinner party choosesit. The food is too heavy for my taste. Not thrilled with the vegetable dishes, myself. Not, apparently, fresh and local like so many Shepherdstown establishments.
It's the priciest of many good restaurants in town.

Dear ma w,
Thank you for your review. I'm glad to hear you enjoy the authentic European ambiance. I'm a bit surprised to hear you question the fresh and local ingredients??? We get our meat from Creekside Farm, only a few miles away, and much of our produce from the local Morgan's Grove Market. Everything is prepared to order. If there is ever a vegetable dish you prefer us to prepare for you, just ask and we'd be happy to meet your dietary needs. We hope that you get invited to many more dinner parties with us, and perhaps even venture out on your own.
Sincerely,
The Asam Family

“Lovely dinner”
Reviewed April 7, 2014

We were there on a quiet Monday night in March. The food was very good and the service was excellent. Their variations on traditional German dishes were nice to see and very good. We had an excellent Austrian red wine that went very well with our food. Overall, a lovely dinner. We will return when we are in the area again.

Dear Walkintall26,
I am so sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy your experience with us. What you described certainly seems out of the norm for us, and I again apologize. We do hope that you join us again to experience what so many other have thoroughly enjoyed. If I can help with future dining, please feel free to contact me directly.

Sincerely,
The Asam Family
