Service was excellent - servers went out of their way to help us through the German menu. Very attentive and friendly. Food was good, but entrees were limited and no kid-sized options. Would definitely recommend Bratwurst and snitzel.

We had dinner here - it was very good and not too expensive (Germany in general is not too expensive). Good portions and nice atmosphere.

Highly recommended German eatery, that did not disappoint. The prices, service, and food were all excellent, as was the beer. I can recommend the potato soup, and the Schwabian pot roast.

This restaurant is conveniently located just off the main square. Excellent service. We sat in the front room and it was quiet once a group of Texans left. We had the Rukensteak (pork steak with mushroom sauce) and the wild schwein goulash. Both were very...More

The Biergarten is located through the restaurant in the back. I liked the seating but getting some shade was difficult on an 86 F day. The food is traditional Bavarian but nothing special. The beer is palatable and enjoyable. The beer is served reasonably cold...More

Delicious. Clean. Friendly. Couldn't have enjoyed it more. It has a great location and history. It is located right on the main square in old town and is easy to find. I would also recommend its hotel for superior lodging.

We found this when looking for somewhere pleasant to eat outside as it was very good weather when we were in Rothenburg. Found this on Tripavisor and tried it. Unlike most restaurants, it doesn't just have tables on the street, but a nice garden at...More

The location is just off the market square , and the schnitzel is delicious. What really distinguishes this restaurant, however, are the friendly, happy waitresses. All this makes for a happy dining experience. BTW, try eating at the community table for a cultural experience.

Our restaurant specializes in Franconian fare with tasty dishes like marinated beef, and moist roast pork soaked in an unforgettable gravy, and a side of red kraut and potato dumplings. Try it with a glas of Franconian wine. Meet the locals in our restaurant, enjoy your beer in our beer garden - or just have a little break with soups, salads or sausages...
