Authentic Bavarian cuisine, not "Americanized". I've been dining at the Stube since it opened in 1989. The service is always the finest. The servers are exceedingly professional and attentive, not overbearing. The servers dress in traditional Bavarian clothing. The atmosphere is perfect - photos of...More

I was seated by a gracious hostess at a table in the bar. Was not acknowledged at all. No waitress presented at my table. Was ignored by the bartender in an empty bar as she visited with a friend. Walked out and dined at Bulls...More

Nice little Bavarian restaurant in quaint downtown Hagerstown. Has a really nice menu for both lunch and dinner, some good beers on tap, and something for everyone's taste. The bread is delicious, and the deserts are to die for. They get creative with the food...More

Fairly good service, one dish was excellent the other was dry and overdone. Appetizers were excellent, dessert was one good , one so-so. Waitress a little over bearing. Parking hard in a neighborhood loaded with street people.

This is our favorite German restaurant! Food is exceptional. Always greeted in a friendly manor most of the time by the owner, Charles. Love the German attire of the waitresses. Can't ask for a better restaurant! Highly recommend it!!

What a wonderful place for lunch and a conversation. The food was delicious, the pace was more leisurely, and service was so good it actually stood out because you don't see it like that in this country anymore. I had a piece of cake for...More

We love when we are able to dine at Schmankerl Stube. We live 2 hours away, but try to stop every year since we found this place about 20 years ago. We made reservations for a busy Friday evening and we were seated promptly. Our...More
