“Birthday Party at Student Prince”
Reviewed November 17, 2013

We held a surprise birthday party for a family member at the Student Prince on 11/16. I cannot say enough good things about the entire experience. From the time when I made the reservation to completion of the event, it was perfect. Worked with Peter and Barbara who were so helpful in suggesting things and working thru any changes. Then our waiter, Jeff, was wonderful - by the end of the evening, he felt like family. He was working two parties and managed to do a superb job. Our group was 16 in a private room (which was just the right size) - the food was excellent - we had the dinner banquet menu - everyone said their dish was great and all of the available entrees were ordered. Everyone in the group was happy and full when the evening ended and all of us will return. Thank you to the staff at the Student Prince for a wonderful evening.

“A very convivial place!”
Reviewed November 13, 2013

I went with two old friends and enjoyed the authentic food and old world atmosphere. I am gluten free and they were very able to work around my restrictions. My two friends really enjoyed the menu and the atmosphere.

“Good Solid German Food!”
Reviewed November 2, 2013

Three of us had lunch here for about 140 dollars. If I have this figured right we were in the Student Prince cafe, this is the old, original bar with booths and hundreds of steins on the wall. There is another dining room which I believe is the Fort, connected to the Student Prince, plus a deli on the corner. We entered on Fort Street. The Jaeger Schnitzel, the Wiener Schnitzel and the Beef Rouladen were all excellent. The German Potato salad was the best I have had, freshly prepared and seasoned just right. Sides included Spatzle, fresh and very buttery, red cabbage and sauerkraut. Service was fast and friendly, We will definitely eat here again next we are in Springfield.

“Bad”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

We went to the Prince for Sunday lunch. The owner came too our table and didn't introduce himself. He told my Son-in-law to pull his shirt down in the back. We were like who are you and he threw us out. It was so embarrassing. Their loss we would have spent alot of money and will never go back.

“Our favorite place”
Reviewed October 22, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

This is a family favorite as we have been going here for over fifty years. The world constantly changes, but not the Student Prince. Wonderful food and delightful atmosphere. The bar itself is worth the drive!
