You get what you expect here...traditional German food with large portions and wonderful taste! Wait staff is dressed in costume to finish the look and feel!

This restaurant is interesting...it has two seating areas, one for the regular dinners which is small and intimate, and one for tour bus passengers which is full of picnic tables and is cavernous. There is a good selection of various German foods including options with chicken instead of veal or pork. Wait staff was attentive and friendly. I really enjoyed... More

About a month prior to visiting Leavenworth, my family and I were in actual Bavaria. We stumbled upon King Ludwigs looking for a lunch spot with Germany food. The entryway is tight and we apparently came in right after they seated a large group of Chinese tourists. So, we waited about 20 minutes, no problem. The inside is decorated in... More

Service was good but food a bit greasy and somewhat bland. Nothing special for the price paid. I would have expected at least to have bread served at the table. Check out your options.

Decided to try King Ludwig's for some Jägerschnitzel and Käsespätzle and really was not impressed. They were not very busy when we went and were seated right away. The place was dirty, not filthy, just dirty. Dead flies on the window sills and food on the floor was a real turn off. The atmosphere was a bit cheesy, but I... More

My husband ordered the expensive pork hock, and that was good. I ordered schnitzel which was just okay. The restaurant hasn't updated their menu or look for many years, which is fine in terms of keeping the traditional German cuisine. But the quality could be improved, especially on the sides. On a positive note, the service was fast and good.

The servers all dress in German clothes. Lots of German Decor. I liked my Reuben sandwich. My husband wasn't that thrilled with the schnitzel. Beer and wine available.

Didn't get a chance to eat here but the restaurant was clean and the waitresses were friendly. We just popped in for a beer and went on our way. I had the Bavarian White. Was fruity and yummy.

Great way to keep with the German Alps tradition in this town and a very similar dinner to what we had in the real German and Austrian alps! We both had the sausage - Sorry - I meant Wurst! You could choose from 4 varieties or mix them the platter can with great roast potatoes, 2 kinds of mustard and... More

My husband is German and he wanted authentic German Food. We found it. The chicken schnitzel with mushroom sauce was excellent. The rotisserie chicken was so juicy and tender. They had a German band playing music. People were dancing and clapping. Great food and entertainment.
