Teske's Germania Restaurant And Beer Garden
by Marc Wilson (san jose.)
Best german food in the states. Better jaegerschnitzel than in Germany. They have a beergarden with live music and dancing. Beers are poured in the proper mugs. Great atmosphere.

255 N. First Street & Devine • San Jose, CA 95113 Tel • 408.292.0291
by Janet Eichmueller Wild (Windermere FL USA)
AUTHENTIC German food and beer !!!!! They are located on Myrtle Ave in Glendale(Queens) NY 11385. We moved down to Florida last February(2009) and we threw my stepmom her 70th surprise Birthday party there.
We used to go at least once a month from Long Island where we lived, to Stammtisch and take my Dad ( who is Bayern) and stepmom with us. OMG...My absolute favorite meal is the Zwiebelrostbraten..The ONIONS..unbelieveable!!! so crispy, but not greasy and tons of them....My mouth waters just thinking about it...with spaeztle and rotkraut...THE BEST EVER!!Other than by my Oma's town- Schaafheim.
If you are in NY, you must try this place...you will become addicted. They have Bauernteller, Sulze, Weisswurst, Leberknodel Suppe, Leberkase, Krautsalat, Semmelknodel, Bratkartofeln, all kinds of Schnitzel, Sauerbraten and Schweinbraten, you name it. I feel a trip to NY coming up.... :-)

Restaurant in Katterbach
by Jamie L Dakota
It was a little restaurant located in Katterbach. I never did find out what the real name of it was, we called Stinkys because there was a farm right by it that always had the farm smell in the air. They had the absolute best jagerschnitzel and cordon bleu I have ever had. To this day I always compare jagerschnitzel and cordon bleu to theirs and nothing even comes close.
Hofbräuhaus in Munich
by Barbara Landshut, Germany
They have great German dishes, prices are low for Munich and food is great. I can recommend the leberkäs with potato salad and the Wienerschnitzel. One thing I did not like there is the baked potato, would not recommend it to anybody.
Stone Hill Winery Vintage Restaurant - Hermann
by Gerri Balius (Deepwater, MO)
There is a rich German history involving the Vintage Restaurant and its physical location amidst the Stone Hill Winery and several other winery's of Herman, Missouri. Germans settled in the area back in the 1800s because the terrain was like that of their beloved Rhine back in Germany. I'm not well familiarized with German culture, but my boyfriend is, and he took me here on a surprise road trip. The food was AWESOME! I had eaten in another town in one restaurant touting German cuisine, and was not impressed, but at the Vintage I was extremely impressed!
I ate a German sampler dinner which included the red cabbage; some kind of sausage with kraut and whole grain mustard; a breaded pork cutlet with a mushroom sauce over; some kind of shaved beef; potato pancake with side of applesauce; and dark grain bread rolls; with my favorite white wine, Stone Hill Vignoles. I know there are names for the items I described on my sampler plate, but I can't say them or spell them off top of my head. My boyfriend ate the same but had a German beer, and right after his first taste of it he exclaimed it was indeed German beer (there's a brewery in Herman also, which makes several recipes of beer too), and my boyfriend, quite familiar with German culture and cuisine, was as impressed as me. I mentioned to him more than a couple times already that I really liked that restaurant and I'd love to go to again for sure!
Mom's Restaurant Spangdahlem
by Marty Wells (Richmond, Kentucky)
Mom's Restaurant in Spangdahlem near the air base. Most awesome food that I only dream about since leaving in 1992. If I ever get the finances to return to Germany, Mom's is a must on my list. Checkout their Face Book and other web links discussing others experiences. My favorites is the salad as well as schnitzel baked with cheese and also pork cordon bleu.

Bayern Stube, Gibson City, Illinois
by Steve Kain (Muskego, WI, USA)
I have eaten here several times. The food is always well prepared and the prices reasonable. The decor is very "German." The owners are from Bayreuth in northern Bavaria. Their menu is on their website "Bayernstube.com." I have had the schlachtplatte, schweinebraten, and some other entrees. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone. It is probably the best German restaurant I have been to in the USA.
Cafe Europe Santa Rosa California
by Sydnee Mortensen (Ojai, CA)
This has become a family favorite. Best German food I have had in California. Fresh Mushroom soup, Wiener and Jaeger
shcnizels and strudel are to die for. Many say their home made meatloaf is the best they have ever tasted.
Steitz's Resort, Antioch, IL
by Jeanette Schwarzbach (Wickenburg, AZ)
This restaurant is on the shores of a Lake in Illinois. It has been there for decades. The atmosphere is amazing and I LOVE their Liver Dumpling Soup!
by Thomas Zinsmayer (Cleveland OH)
It is at W 130th St and Lorain Rd in Cleveland OH. It reminds me of the many Gasthaueser I visited in Germany. The food is super with many favorite German specialties. My favorite is the Saurbraten with spaetzle and rotkohl.They have over 50 beers to choose from and numerous german spirits.
by Amy (Bath Maine USA)
Family owned and run German restaurant in Brunswick, Maine with a long history of great German foods in addition to the best prime rib in New England. Great German Beers. Have never been disappointed.

by Joyce Colvin (Port Alberni, BC Canada)
I have tried a number of German Restaurants and cannot fine any other to compare to the service and taste of this little piece of heaven.
Ol Heidelberg Cafe
by Dave (Syracuse, NY)
6125 University Dr NW # E14 Huntsville, AL 35806 (256) 922-0556 Sun-Thur: 11am-9pm · Fri & Sat: 11am-10pm http://www.olheidelberg.com
I went to this German restaurant several times over the last 15 years. It was excellent. Twice I went with a co-worker that had been in the Army, stationed in W. Germany. He came back married to a German woman, so while in Germany and back home he was exposed to extensive amounts of genuine homemade German food.
When we ate at Ol Heidelberg, he raved about its authenticity.
On my end of it, the food was fantastic every time I ate there. I have eaten Beef Rouladen, Slachtplatte--
Choice of three sausages - Bratwurst, Knackwurst, Rauchwurst or Polish, Wiener Schnitzel, Jaeger Schnitzel, and Sauerbraten. All of my meals supplied plenty of food to eat and because I was staying in a hotel with no refrigerator, there were leftovers that I begrudgingly left behind. The flavors of all of my meals and accompaniments was phenomenal, also. No bland flavors in anything I ate.
Should I get back to Huntsville again, this is at least one of my meals!
Gasthof zur Gemutlichkeit & Mario Keller's Bar

Das Wald Cafe - Warwick Boulevard, Newport News, Virginia
by Donna (Greensboro, NC)
We go frequently when visiting my family in the Williamsburg, Virginia area. The food is delightful! Flaedle soup, gulaschsuppe, gulasch, saurbraten (only on Sundays) and more - it's all wonderful. For the non-adventurous folks, they have the best fried chicken ever! Sides like spaetzle, rotkraut, saurkraut, kartofel knodle, etc., just make it even better.

by Suzanne (Plantsville, CT)
Nick Augustino, Owner/Burgermeister Authentic German Cuisine. Interesting European Interior Design with much to look at of interest. Staff outfitted in traditional German Attire. Family owned since early 1900's.
Beer Garden.Prost! "Ticky tocky, ticky tocky, Hoy, Hoy, Hoy!". Good food! Excellent place to celebrate a person's Birthday! I studied abroad in Darmstadt,Germany during the 1980's so as a surprise my PA Dutch(Deutche) Dad and my mom brought me and my children here for my Birthday. It was so much fun. It is in an unexpected place in a residential area.Everyone in New Britain knows about this place.
They recently have had several billboards throughout Connecticut letting other people know about them too. People are very friendly, good hosts. Family owned and operated since early 1900's! So many of the recipes listed on this website are on their menu.
D.J's Bistro in Concord, California
by J.W.Conrad (Oakley CA)
It' is owned and run by czech's who are very gracious and warm folks. The Chef is German, and has a excellent grasp on tradition. It's a small place but comfortable like you would find in Eastern Eroupe. They have an excellent beer and wine selection that compliments their dinner fare. I and my family give it full honors and a sold 10 on staff cuisine and atmosphere.
