The meals where delightful The desserts were very enjoyable. My favorite, apple strudel with real whipped cream. Try the pork knuckle sauerbraten, potato dumplings or red apple cabbage. My wife had the schnitzel and enjoyed it. Would recommend this restaurant.

I’ve dined at the Gerst Haus a few times. After this most recent visit I’ve decided no more for me. It smelled bad. It smelled like a moldy bar. I had the sausage sampler with kraut and German potato salad. I’m unsure what the 3...More

This place was recommended by the hotel staff and I'm glad I took their recommendation. Great food, large portions and a friendly staff. Definitely worth the visit.

We were alittle disappointed this time with the service, no music what so ever and the food wasn't as good as last time we ate there Nov 2016! We love eating at this place but this time was disappointing

Visited restaurant for early Saturday lunch with family. Wasn't crowded or busy. Friendly, attentive service. Best oysters I've ever had! Did not care for Kraut balls or ham rolls. Knackwurst was salty and underwhelming. Goulash excellent. But the German potato salad? Raw!! Completely inedible. Bathroom...More

Stopped in here for a bite on a Sunday evening. Staff seemed overwhelmed or something but the restaurant wasn't busy. Had a Rueben sandwich and a pork tenderloin sandwich which was very good. Huge schooners of beer. Would have been very nice if the service...More

I really, really wanted this meal to work.  Our party of seven arrived Monday eve to a mostly empty restaurant.  The dimly lit space was more lodge-like than beer hall.  The bar is connected to the dining space with no separation.  Instead of German music...More

It may have been from cross contamination. It was not very clean. The sewage smell is overwhelming at times. There were several comments regarding roaches as well. They are known to carry germs. I didn't see any, but... More
