The Schnaps is flavorful and smooth. The atmosphere is relaxed and fun. The staff is ready to please and helpful with suggestions of what to eat. There is a wandering accordion player, that is comical and good. Adds to the feeling of the place. If you like old world bayerisher cuisine, then you must eat here. The selection of beers... More

Another fantastic and fun experience! The Gasthof is a must anytime we're in Minneapolis. Once you pass through the doors, you're transported to Germany, where the food and hospitality are top notch. We can't wait to return. ein Prosit!

We wanted authentic German food and had heard about this restaurant from several people in our local area. We called the night before and made a reservation for next day with no problem. The next morning someone called and said their employee should not have taken the reservation and the time we wanted would not work. They did offer us... More

Great fun, particularly when with a group. Good and plentiful German beer (don't look for a lot of domestic craft beers here), lots and lots of toasting throughout the dining room, roving accordion players in lederhosen and knee socks, lots of singing -- Bavarian kitsch at its finest. Conversely, the food is just average, nothing memorable, even by German cuisine... More

The accordion player is fabulous! They've remodeled in the past year ... and lost some charm (it feels more trendy bar than old German restaurant now), but still a fun place. Our food was good, the service was as expected and our group had a FABULOUS time. We wished we'd known that the polka band is only there on Saturday... More

The Gasthof is definitely worth a try. We ordered one of the combination platters for two and there was enough food for four. For the most part the food was tasty yet maybe a little bland. Perhaps more gravy needed. Lots of tap beers. Crowd got to singing making for a fun atmosphere. Staff was friendly and helpful. Accordion player... More

You should plan on spending about $30/person here, depending upon how much you drink. (We don't drink, but we do eat a lot.) The atmosphere is fun -- love the accordion music -- and when we go there on our triplets' birthdays, they are always very sweet to us there! We absolutely love the food and come away stuffed. So,...

Had booked for our group coming in from LA - many were skeptical thinking about other choices. Ultimately, we had a blast! Beer selection was great - we ordered a "Boot" of beer and played the drinking game. The food was very authentic and very good. I shared one of the combination platters with a friend - Schnitzel, sauerbraten, spaetzel,... More

We took my Dad here for his birthday this year and were so glad we did! It was a new experience for our whole group and the staff made it a fun one! We had the BAYERISCHE HAUSPLATTE - (BAVARIAN HOUSE PLATTER) For Two. My favorite was the Beef Rouladen and the Bratwurst of course! This platter was huge and... More

We have never been to Gasthof's before, and it was an unforgettable experience! We were celebrating my mother's 80th Birthday and wanted to treat her to our family heritage and it did not disappoint!! Our waitress was awesome and the gentleman that played the accordion made the atmosphere. We had their family style platters, and let's just say we brought... More
