The Rhineland is one of the few German restaurants in the Kansas City area. The restaurant has a good feel and the food is top notch. If you're wanting something a little different to try in a restaurant, I can highly recommend going to the Rhineland.

Always good for lunch or dinner in the German style. Brings back memories of living there. Schnitzel, mmmmm!

I have visited here several times and always tried something new. I have never been disappointed in the genuine German cuisine.

I love German food and my husband visits Germany frequently, so we jumped at a chance to get away from the kids and eat here for my birthday with my inlaws. I also scoffed at the negarive reviews and now have buyer's remorse. We were greeted with a Rotorooter truck outside and "It will be awhile, just so you know"... More

If you're looking for authentic German food, go no further. We have eaten here multiple times, as the food is awesome and I enjoy the atmosphere (especially when they have live music :) The owner can come off a little grumpy, but she's actually nice. We have always had a good experience with the staff as well. There is a... More

I find German food to be bland and maybe it was what I ordered and my expectations, but it wasn't my "cup of tea". That said, it has been around at that location for a long time, so they must have a following!

As the Kansas City area doesn't have many German restaurants, this is one of the best I've been to. Food is wonderful (although, at times, it can be a little off), service is great, and is always a place I go whenever I want a taste of German food.

We just ate here for the second time this evening 12/30/16. It's been a few years since we've been here. When we came in, the waitresses weren't overly friendly and actually seemed angry at people who came in with no reservations, thought it's not mentioned anywhere on their website or posted inside that they are needed. There were many empty... More

This place is small and very good food. A friend of mine who is from Germany said their food was the closest to German food in the Kansas City area. I say give it a try.
