the Schnitzel is wonderful here and the soups are great as well. Very friendly staff and atmosphere. The portions are large and usually take some home.

Saturday Lunch. I have been to Black Forrest dozens of time over the years. There were some issues this time including slow wait service (understaffed). Our waitress was very nice but you could tell she was doing more tables than she should. My Schnitzel was...More

My husband and I were so overly impressed with the quality of the food and how much it resembled the Schnitzel that he would have while on business trips in Germany.

A while back I had a few “average” meals at Black Forest. I can do average myself, so we stopped going. My parents invited me to dinner and I figured, oh well. It’s free. Even if it isn’t great. It’s on them. I was so...More

Servings are huge but lack greatness in the food. Pork was over processed, red cabbage limp and tasted like it came from a jar (which may have been the case). Did not live up to the memories of past dining experiences.

Used to be excellent quality food and great service, wait time to get in was incredibly long but worth it. A year after new ownership, quality and flavor of the food has gone down, wait time to get in is shorter now and you can...More

They’re is a small step on both entrance and exit but I would consider this easily managed. The washroom is accessible but I can’t say for sure about the toilet with bar. Absolutely call them, they’re very accommodating.

We went with a large group-most had a meat based order but some did have non meat dish. The salads were great and very well portioned. Everyone did rave about the schnitzel and spetzel.
