Very disappointed, I have eaten here several times back in the 90's before the location changed so I was excited to bring the family here on this visit to Nashville. The gerst fishbowl ( a house amber) was still good, unfortunately, the food was in contention for the worst meal I have ever been served....anywhere. I would detail the problems... More

We stopped in on a Tuesday for a late lunch. We ordered the Gerst Sampler which included fried oysters, ham rolls, kraut balls, and potato pancackes. Then we chose to try the Gerst House combinations and had the bratwurst(pork sausage), kasseler rippchen (smoked pork chop), weiner schnitzel(fried veal), German potatoes, and spatzel. All of the food was wonderful. The service... More

This restaurant was authentic German and amazing! First time ever here, and I've visited Nashville for years! What a place and a Nashville tradition, since the 1950'S! I had the polish kielbasa with onions and peppers! German potato salad (cold), was awesome! The red cabbage was great, also! A friend had the kielbasa sandwich with fries, it was amazing too!...

Excellent atmosphere and the fishbowl size beers are frosted. The food was good but can get a little pricey depending on what you order. Our meals were around 12 bucks. They can go up to 25.

We had a great server, were excited to be able to find my husbands favorite German beer that he had not been able to have since leaving Germany. When the band finally began, it was fun to have going on and they even began with a happy birthday to a customer. We had high hopes with the beer and the... More

We visited Great Haus on a Saturday evening while in Nashville to attend the Antiques and Garden Show at the Music Center downtown. It was a wonderful escape from the Saturday night crowds, the exorbitant parking and traffic the long waits for a table to relax and enjoy the evening at the Gerst Haus, a venerable Nashville landmark with the...

The first time I ate here was over forty years ago and still look forward to each return visit. It is not quite the same, but neither am I. German dishes are featured but other items are offered. One of the daily specials was blackened catfish and it was spicy good. Upon arrival, about 12:30p, the place was almost full... More

Wonderful music and even better smoked sausages with sour kraut, baked beans, and great rye bread. The apple strudel is to die for. Enjoy this Nashville treasure!
