Lovely setting, great German food. All were more than satisfied with their meals. The schwein hauxs are great. Located near the Heartland trail. A must if you are in the area!

This authentic German restaurant is located near the Chipawa National Forest tucked back on the scenic lake country highway. The hostess was awesome giving the kids coloring book and crayons to keep the busy. We were seated with a free appetizer. The menu is very German so check the website before you go to get an idea of what to... More

We and our friends enjoyed a wonderful German style meal at the Brauhaus Restaurant. The decor, background music and food all make you feel as though you've just stepped across the ocean. Gaby runs the restaurant with an attention to detail that only one who is German can do. We arrived early and within an hour the place was almost... More

Our first time here after seeing a story on WCCO featuring it. Nicely decorated place between Akely and Nevis, bigger inside than the outside appearance. Nice variety of offerings. Found the duck to be done nicely and quite large, a little too sweet for my taste but that is an individual preference. My wife had the pork, excellent. Our service... More

We've had meals at German restaurants in Milwaukee, Chicago, Indianapolis and elsewhere and this, by far, is the best of the best. It's out of the way, for sure, but SO worth the drive. Every fishing trip to Leech or Cass or Winnebegosish, gives us the opportunity to once again experience the wonders of their menu. And the array of... More

I love German food and have enjoyed it in Germany, Austria and Milwaukee, among other places. This place is amazing and you will not find a Schwein Haux (sp?) like it anywhere else in the world. The small one is huge, so I'm not sure how you'd describe the big one, other than huger?! :) The sides are all authentic... More

My wife is German and I have spent enough time there to recognize good, authentic German cuisine. The Brauhaus is excellent; their food is superb, the service is perfect. We eat there at least once every time we are at the lake.

My husband and I went with a friend to eat at this 30 year old restaurant in north central Minnesota lake country. We'd eaten here several times in the past, but this is the first time back in seven or eight years because the last visit was disappointing. However, at this visit the food very good, our waitress (Shannon) was... More
