Lunch after visiting Schwetzigen Gardens and Palace. The pancake soup was ok and the Liver and Onions was tasty!! Could use an English translation menu. We enjoyed a nice salad.

Stopped here to visit with our German friends from Hanover. The best part of the dinner was their company and second was our server. The food was traditional German food and was solid but not outstanding. Our server was extremely friendly and helpful. Wen were fortunate to have a German couple with us for translation but our server surprised us... More

We were out cycling and stopped for lunch. I had asparagus crepes. She had Flamkuchen with leeks, asparagus, and ham. We sat outside and enjoyed the view of the palace and a glass, ok I admit, two glasses of Weißburgunder. Lovely place, great food, wonderful wine.

A group of us caught "Spargel" fever during "Spargelzeit" (end April to June 24) and dropped by zum Gruenen Baum to enjoy some. Schwetzingen's white asparagus is amongst the best in Germany, and the restaurant did justice to the delicate flavors of this royal vegetable in various forms - as a soup, in a salad, and boiled. Our "Spargel" feast... More

At best, really drab food, most of which looked like it had been prepared hours (if not days) earlier. Well, that's not quite true - the beer was absolutely fine. But the food and the service were generally terrible. A number of dishes turned up with random extra ingredients (for instance, a simple leek flammkuchen turned up with sweetcorn and... More

In a big group we enjoyed the set menu with asparagus. Spargelzeit! This was some of the best white asparagus I've eaten. The soup, salad, spargel and schnitzel were all delicious and extremely generous portions.

Springtime is spargel (white asparagus) time in Germany and this restaurant in the heart of spargel country is a great way to enjoy this delicious tuber. The offerings of spargel dishes we sampled here, spargel with schnitzel and spargel over pork loin with melted parmesan, were some of the best we've ever had. Zum Grünen Baum is located at the...

We eat here almost weekly, great lunch, and dinner options... Breakfast is okay but better down the street... The food is fresh and quick! Great menu options! The kids even love it! We always take our out of town guest here... Great "German" experience!
