This is a German restaurant. It is very, very German. You get German food,. They play German music on the accordian. For what it is, it is very good,. But you need to like all things German, especially the food.

It hard to believe the Rathskeller Schnitzel Haus is destined to close within the month as it will definitely be missed by those who enjoy a good German meal.While everything on the menu is great the Jager ans Zigeuner Schnitzel are outstanding. The service is friendly and the portion are large - what more could you ask.

Excellent German food in a very cozy environment complete with live accordian music and beer. We sampled quite a few dishes and found that all were delicious and home made. Unfortunately this restaurant is closing soon, so if you haven't been, I highly recommend making a reservation. One small point is that the beer glasses have lines on them and... More

too bad they are selling. i've never understood why the place isn't packed. it's amazing value. they serve lunch from 3 to 5. for around 15 or 17 CD you can get a full meal: salad, schnitzel, potato pancakes & a beer. students ought to fill the place. best deal around.

If you like German food, you will enjoy the schnitzel , red cabbage, German potatoes - those are my favourites! The atmosphere is what you would expect for a German setting. Food is good, service very good and enjoy some fine accordion music on the weekends . Close to central downtown, easy to walk to.

The Escargo was the best I've ever had. We also had the Seafood Schnitzel which was excellent.. We are planning to take some family members in mid August. I know they'll really, really enjoy the experience.

Traditional old style German venue. Seating was quick, service slowed appreciably as dinner progressed. The menu is predictable. Good choice of beers. The schnitzel was very overdone. This place needs a better cook. We did not stay long. Mostly disappointing evening. Not recommended.

I stopped because of the Rudellsheim coffee! I loved it and it was served in the same mugs they do in Rudellsheim! Memories and a yummy drink makes me happy! The bratwurst and pretzels were very good... My favorite was the escargot! I would go back over and over! The girls were friendly and helpful!
