The food is amazing, the atmosphere is just perfect, and the people that make it all go couldn't be nicer. Any time we make it to the Three Lakes area, we feel so lucky to be able to dine here. Whether just the two of us or if we bring the little one's, there's something for anyone and everyone to... More

You think it's easy to cook like a real German mom ... believe me it's not. But this restaurant offers real german food. I'm German an this place reminds me when I was a kid and my grandmother used to cook for us. The food is absolute authentic and you can taste that everything is homemade. Congratulations Three Lakes !... More

Ate there most recently in December 2016, and the food was excellent. There is a separate place for young people and pool sharks to play on some table games, and the staff is attentive and competent. The chef is German. Around two years ago this establishment was completely refurbished by new owners, rewired, etc. on the inside, and the food... More

The Black Forest, in Three Lakes (across from the Three Lakes Theater & Center for the Arts) is a great choice for an enjoyable meal in a warm, comforting atmosphere. The food is consistently very good and not only limited to German food choices. Of particular note are the German-style Pork Shank (very large portion), the Black Forest Chicken stuffed... More

The food was something that anyone could make at home with a can of gravy soup poured over meat, and a package of noodles,. No bread is served, unless you pay an extra $5. Tables were dirty, no placemats. It was just not worth the money.

My German husband loves German restaurants and this place did not disappoint. He had the schnitzel and I had the pretzels along with drinks. We were both very very please. It is no surprise why it is so popular.

We both had Beef rouladin, and it was very very good. I have been to many German restaurants in the Twin City area, and this surpassed all of them for its food. It was very busy on a Sunday night and they did not take reservations. We had to wait an hour but the food was worth it.

Highly recommend! The atmosphere and food here are both great! It's like a little German chateau with an American flare. There are big booths and big tables. Tables are spread far enough apart that you enjoy your own conversation. They have a flight of all the beers on tap for $1 each, which was extremely reasonable. The other drinks we... More

My husband and I finally got around to eating at this restaurant. Although it's a German restaurant, I'm ashamed to say I didn't get a german dish(even though I'm german)! I'm always a sucker for ribeye dinners when they're on the menu, which was very, very good. The ribeye was a little fatty but I'm one of those people that... More
