We recently ate lunch at the Bavarian Inn, and ordered the Jagerschnitzel. The food was okay, not great. The waiter was friendly, but his uniform was really dirty. The restaurant and building could really use a good cleaning, and freshing up. The prices they charge, should warrant a cleaner, looking establishment.

My husband and I have been going to the Bavarian Inn for over 35 years. The rooms are romantic and inviting...the food is fantastic...the owners very gracious. We have celebrated almost every special event at this beautiful Inn.

My wife and I were there about 10 years ago with our grandchildren and thought it would be nice to spend our 52 anniversary there. We enjoyed our stay as we originally did and had a nice lazy day and a half.

Interesting Old World look....staff was adequate....menu definitely Germanic Food was rather expensive for what was offered, though the bread before the meal was outstanding Food was good, but not great. Especially given the prices. The best item from our table of four was the Shepard's Pie. The place was rather sober.

Our stay at the Bavarian Inn is always special. A room with a view of the Potomac, dinner at the first class restaurant and the relaxing atmosphere cannot be compared. After checking in we had a little confusion finding our room, we saw the sign directing us to our room but didn't see the door. A maintenance person stopped his...

We have stayed at the Bavarian Inn as a special celebration of my wife's birthday for several years now. We get the Winter Special package that comes with a four course meal with matching wine and a wonderful room with spa tub, fireplace and balcony view of the river.

Bavarian Inn has solid conference space and banquet facilities and the layout overall is functional. The guest rooms are good with nice amenities (but some may find them a bit dated). The views from room balconies overlooking the river are striking. The staff were friendly and responsive. Overall, a great place to stay!

Enjoyed the inn. Was pricy for the amount of time we spent there.. There is plenty to do and see in surrounding area. Food was expensive but we tried German sausage and spätzle, a German noodle. In summer there would be more to do, as there was an infinity pool and nearby white water rafting. We were able to shop,...
