We arrived for lunch almost exactly at 12 noon and given a nice table near the window looking out on Potomac St. The menu had lots of teriffic choices and we had a tough time deciding what to try as everything looked good. We had the bratwurst on a potato roll and a turkey, bacon & swiss. Both tasted great.... More

Four adults all enjoyed lunch-the chicken breast stuffed with spinach and cheese platter. Strudel for dessert was delicious. Service was excellent and the noise level was low.

Charlie Sekula is the host and founder of the restaurant. I challenge anyone to find a finer host. The quality of the food is very consistent and the staff knows their menu. Can't say enough good things as I have literally had hundreds of meals there.

We enjoyed dinner here before attending the symphony. I had the pot roast and spatzel. Th meat was very tender and the sauce was mild. My husband had the sauerbraten and also found it tender. The portions were large without being too much. The dessert tray was a thing of beauty and all made fresh at the Stube.

My husband and I stopped in for lunch last Saturday. We split two carafes of wine, the Wurst Sampler (array of sausages) appetizer, and the Sauerbraten Lunch. The food was great and we had no complaints about the service. The restaurant decor and server uniforms were perfect....I felt like I was in Germany! We'd definitely recommend this restaurant.

The three of us walked in on an early Saturday evening thinking it would be empty. It was already filling up but we were shown to a table immediately and greeted by a very friendly waitress in Bavarian dress, as were all the wait staff. My husband had soup and an appetizer which he said were delicious. Our entrees were... More

We went last minute on a Saturday evening without a reservation. Our server was so friendly and helpful giving us a few definitions on the menu. Although the decor is a bit dated, it's charming and warm atmosphere with good German food and comprehensive drink menu. Would definitely return!
