We arrived for an early dinner, were seated right away, and had our own bottle of wine to share among four people. The bread was hearty and our appetizers of potato pancakes were scrumptious. The people I was with ordered the schnitzel and sauerbraten, while...More

Read the reviews and it was nice to take a break from the portland foodie scene and have a restorative meal made with love. The menu bends german and you should take advantage of that, also pack your own booze. The food took some time,...More

Had dinner at Schulte & Herr with my German father and mother. The food was 100% authentic German. My parents were thrilled. What an amazing surprise. We had the schnitzel, saurbrauten and the Wurst Platte. I'd recommend all 3 to everyone.

One of my favorite restaurants in Portland. I have had brunch here several times and love the roast special especially the mushroom gravy. I finally had the opportunity to have dinner and I was disappointed. The goulash was excellent! Everthing is always fresh and homemade....More

We go there regularly for brunch and supper. Limited menu but wonderful tastes and the owner and staff are always very friendly. A truly hidden gem in Portland.!

Having lived in Germany for two years and speaking the language, I had been wanting to try this Portland restaurant about which we'd heard good things. We were well received by a pleasant waitress who alerted us to the fact that had no license and...More

Funky German small 9 table restaurant with an eclectic mix of furniture. This BYOB German restaurant tucked away on Cumberland ave. offers authentic German fare. The always smiling and friendly owner Steffi waited on us on a cold Thursday in March. Shortly after open we...More

Went here for brunch. This is flat out authentic German food. There are options (scrambled eggs, omelette) for people who aren't that adventurous, but I highly recommend the German food. Sundays they do a traditional roast, it varies from week to week, it's the real...More
