We showed up with a group of six during a busy lunch period and were seated quickly. The food was excellent - large portions and tasty. My partner had a Reuben sandwich - piled high with corned beef and sauerkraut. Her side was warm German potato salad - don't pass this up. I had the day's lunch special - jaegerschnitzel... More

Dear EdBike, Thank you for having lunch with us and for taking time to review your experience. The Reuben is a guest favorite here, as is the Jaeger Schnitzel, and I'm glad these dishes hit the mark for you. I personally love the chicken salad grilled on our rye bread! Thanks for saying something about the butter, too - we... More

If you are looking for good simple German food, Hildegard's is it. The veal was quite good and not over cooked. Potatoes were like homemade! It is simple food at a good price. Good service. Black Forest Cake was really good but needs more cherries.

Amy M, Owner at Hildegard's German Cuisine, responded to this review

Dear rritchey, Thank you for this nice review. I'll certainly look into the amount of cherries we're putting on the Black Forest cake - it's a delicate balance: too few, not as decadent as it could be, too many, and it falls apart! I hope you will come and see us again soon. Sincerely, Amy Miller More

Hildegard's is tucked away in a small shopping center, centrally located but easy to miss if you aren't looking for them. It is a quaint little place with a decidedly old fashioned feel inside. Simple, but comforting, with tables, a small bar and a couple of refrigerators where the dessert options were on display. Visited them for the first time... More

Dear smmarkfan, This is by far one of my favorite reviews of Hildegard's German Cuisine! You did catch us on Saturday when we were unexpectedly busier than usual for that time, and I appreciate your understanding. We are in the process of hiring more staff, so hopefully, the next time you're here, your service will be flawless. What I most... More

So good. My family goes at least a couple times a month. Service is outstanding, especially Kati. She always knows what I want and brings to table before I can even get sat down good. Their menu has so many good items, it's hard to decide. And a lot of food. I always have leftovers. The desserts will make you... More

Dear Regina B, Thank you for taking the time to post this good review for us! It is always nice to see you and Bill, and while it might not be right, we love helping people abandon their diets.

When Hildegard's first opened up it was there was far more attention to detail and quality. The 6 of us went there tonight at my recommendation and it was far less than what was and at a higher price. The smoked pork chop was small, and what you buy at any market from Hormell, and not restaurant quality or special... More

Dear Umfrid, Thank you for reviewing us. I purchased this restaurant over a year ago and the improvements that we made to the food quality and service have been very well received. However, we failed you in this case, and for that, I'm sorry. We have gotten extremely busy as of late, and have new folks in the kitchen, so... More

We ran by at lunch for a reuben sandwich. They were very generous with their meat but the bread wasn't very toasted and absorbed a lot of the sauerkraut juice. Since they were so busy, we barely saw our waitress. I would like to give them one more try and see if it is better.

Amy M, Owner at Hildegard's German Cuisine, responded to this review

Dear Cerelia, I'm so sorry that you had a mediocre experience here, but I do appreciate the honest feedback! Today, I will meet with the kitchen and we will come up with a way to better drain the sauerkraut for our Reubens. You should have gotten the most excellent service and attention while you were here, and I'm sorry that... More

I liked being able to try new foods as well as my favorites. The pan fried potatoes were very good. The service was excellent especially for a buffet. The inside does have a garden feel. I was a little concerned about food safety because the food is warmed over traditional chafing dishes. Are they monitoring food temp? Did not try... More

Hello, GMRPH, Thank you for reviewing, but Hildegard's German Cuisine only serves fresh and made to order German meals that are served to your table. Our place is too small to have a buffet!
