Something Bavarian, tasty, and with a homely atmosphere. We heard about it being a good place for breakfast, lunch or dinner. So we went there for breakfast and another day for lunch. Both times were satisfying.

You really can't find better german food than what you find here. Excellent schnitzels and great sauerbraten. They have a wonderful bakery too. Pastries that make you want to toss the diet out the window. And yes, you can have good german beer with your meal although the choices are a bit limited. The service can be a tad slow... More

Restaurant is nice. There are some fun displays of German stuff. I was there for lunch and had veal links, potatoes, and red cabbage....good, not great. There was one server for the whole restaurant. Poor guy was running all over the place. Gave him a big tip for his efforts. They have a dance floor so maybe it would be... More

We discovered this gem while making our way back to the hotel and we just had to try the fare. It was slow for a Thursday night but we came for the food, not the crowd, and were not disappointed. Service was exemplary, very friendly and knowing the entrees would take longer since they were made from scratch allowed us... More

We've been going to Bavarian World since we first moved to Reno in 1988. This is our favorite local family owned restaurant and one we always take visitors to. Don't judge it from the outside, please. I believe it may have originally been a grocery store and the interior is sort of stuck in the 1980's but the food and... More

Greetings from Menlo Park, San Francisco mid peninsula I am always on the lookout for any bakery that sells authentic apple strudel ..... and by that I mean strudel without the excessive sugar added to the crust and insided which is never needed if high quality apples are used. Santa Barbara's Danish bakery adds the most sugar of anyone and... More

This is a German restaurant in the grand tradition. The food is excellent, the service excellent. Don't let the neighborhood fool ya. We had a group of 8 and they took our lunch reservation and were all set up for us when we arrived. We all wanted to get separate checks and they were very accommodating. The menu had a... More

The food is very good and plentiful with a good selection of German Dishes. The attached Bakery is Fantastic, the best rye bread west of Chicago, and fantastic pastries that are flavorful and not too sweet. Pretzels and pretzel rolls are the best that I've ever had. Incredible selection of German Delicatessen items German Americans come from miles away to... More

This was the first time my husband and I had eaten German fare (except for a sandwich at the Frankfort airport). We don't eat pork, and would not have chosen this restaurant on our own. Most of the menu choices are pork. Our son-in-law's mother is from Germany and she enjoys eating at Bavarian World when she visits Reno. Six... More
