They were having a seafood festival the night we were there, so I ordered the seared scallops. They were done perfectly - neither overdone nor undercooked. My husband's jaegerschnitzel was also quite good. We shared a piece of linzertorte,which was a bit dry. We ordered...More

We hoped for good German fare, especially since the Bavarian Inn is touted. The food and service were disappointing - barely average. I would not go back but for the dearth of dining options in the Sharpsburg area.

A group of us had dinner out on the balcony. The place is higher scale and requires a dress code. Overall the food was good, but nothing special. The group basically was in agreement. One person asked for medium rare steak, but received well done....More

We stayed at the Inn explicitly for this restaurant and it was overpriced and not very good. I had the eggplant medallions. Very small portion. My wife had the Sauerbraten. It was cold and not an authentic recipe.

This property is shockingly dated and the German food inedible and obviously canned. We called the veal "vealicken" since it could have been any pounded white meat. The cabbage and spaetzli were not homemade. If the spaetzli was it, it was premade day(s) ahead and...More

Dear heatherlouisa, I am so sorry that the German cuisine was not to your liking. I can assure you that none of our food is canned, and is all homemade. The definition of schnitzel is heavily tenderized or pounded. Many German restaurants use pork, but...More

As much as I love the Bavarian Inn Restaurant I would recommend the chicken, not because I don't like the way they "do" seafood but because I LOVE the way they do chicken!
