Set by the gate to the tiny Main Street and centre of town, this down-to-earth place features sturdy good quality food in the Frankish tradition. The family-run place dates back to 1658 -maybe earlier- and does ooze history from the outside and within.
Including prankish roof lamps with a barebosomed lady sporting stag horns and a mermaid tail. After partaking this delightful view, I enjoyed a excellent roast duck and savoury dessert for dinner.
Nicely cooled regional wine is served by the glass.
Prices are comfortable and helpings generous indeed.
Well recommended maybe even worth a small detour.

My husband and daughters and I were seated in the outdoor garden. Although very German herself, the chef kindly spoke English to us. We ordered Schnitzel but the chef had her own recommendation and brought glazed beef and noodles, and pork shoulder with dumplings to our table. My beef and noodles were FABULOUS: I will dream about this meal forever (no joke!) Our kids ordered fries and brats, basic fare for most German restaurants, however I am so glad the chef had us try her favorite dishes. The ambiance, authentic food, and hospitable staff was highly enjoyable during our European trip.

We started with an appetizer, 3 components: Schinken with a side of pesto, Spargel soup (Asparagus) and Lachs (smoked salmon) with a mild horseradish sauce. All served with fresh bread. It was a feast for the eyes. The plate was not over filled, which in my opinion takes away from the dining pleasure. The quality and presentation were worthy of a Michelin star.

For the main course we had the Tafelspitz with cranberries in a light horseradish sauce served with band noodles. We also had the Wild mit Knödel. We ordered the two course with the suggested wine for each and it was a very good way to try regional wines knowing that they'd fit to what we were eating.

This was an outstanding experience with all the components that make up a great experience not only with the food and presentation but with the ambience and the wonderful staff.

We didn't eat here, but had some beers. The service was fine and based on the other tables, it looked like the food was good. However all tables were reserved the time we dropped by. We were also unable to eat here during our 3 day stay in Prichsenstadt since they have rest days on Mondays and on Tuesdays.

Over the past decade we have eaten many meals in the Storch and always found the food well above average, the service good and the atmosphere very pleasant. On our most recent visit, four of us drove half an hour, expecting a treat of a meal. We ordered four different entrees and each of us found ours to be nothing better than average. The service and atmosphere were as we had come to expect during our many past visits.
We hear that this family-run restaurant has been taken over by the next generation. Whether this was the cause of our disappointment, or perhaps a substitute chef, we have no idea. But, each dish lacked the robust flavors we had come to expect in the past. My pork steak dish not only lacked flavor, but the meat was tough, the gravy watery so watery that I had to eat my French Fried Potatoes out of the serving dish.
On the positive side, the staff is still friendly and efficient, the wines good as ever and the ambiance still a positive. Alas, the food was not worth a half hour drive in each direction. We will try this old favorite again when we are nearby and hope this last experience was a one-off. If the quality has truly changed, then the Storch has become no better than an average 3 Point restaurant.
