Wow, what an awesome experience. The decor and servers are authentic German themes. What an atmosphere!!!! The bread and butter are complimentary and the butter is amazing. At certain times of the year they serve hasenpfeffer and also gluehwein. You can never go wrong with the Spaetzle ( my personal favorite). Also, all of the desserts are fantastic!!!

My wife and I dined here while visiting Louisville based on the recommendation of a friend. The Gasthaus delivered - best German-style food I've had in the midwest so far. I don't typically order sauerbrauten because I never found it appetizing in restaurants I visited. But,I ordered it here and it was outstanding! The meat was moist and flavorful and... More

We have been going here for 3 years. At the end of the meal the first year we said the only thing missing was roasted Haxen. They said they could do it but needed an advances order. This past time 11 of us ordered it and it was perfect. Crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. The ones... More

Dined at this restaurant this evening for my sons birthday. He spent 10 days in Germany in May and wanted some authentic German cuisine. We enjoyed a wonderful soup of the day , a creamy creation made with Brussels spouts, the featured salad, and wonderful main dishes . Between the three of us we tried, veal, pork and chicken dishes.... More

We have lived in Germany and frequently need a schnitzel fix. We were so pleased with the Gasthaus restaurant. Nice ambiance, very nice service, and jager schnitzel to die for. Also a very nice wine and beer selection. Thoroughly enjoyed. If we lived in Lousiville, this would be in our regular rotation...

I was back in Louisville and went for a return visit with colleges to Gasthaus German Restaurant. I think it was even better this time. FIrst, the atmosphere is outstanding. When you get inside, you feel you are in Germany which is a surprise based upon the low key exterior view. The people inside are equally as dressed and very... More

We really enjoyed the schnitzel. Slightly thick and very juicy/moist. Desserts were off the charts. You can absolutely tell that everything is carefully homemade. The soup (chicken paprika?) was literally to die for.

The Gasthaus German Restaurant was wonderful! We both had the sauerbraten with spatzle and I also had the potato soup. Both were delicious. The meat was easy to cut with a fork and tasted fantastic. As many have reported, the soup was to die for. Bottled beer and wine are also available. The service couldn't have been better. As might... More

Gasthaus in Louisville, Ky is a little restaurant but has a good flavor. Inside is a little dining area with some in little house style settings – watch you noggin. Its small so reservations will be imperative on week-ends. Ok the apparel is a little kitschy and the teddy bears on one house stared at me as I ate. I... More
