Every time we eat here it just gets better and better. This time we took my mom, who was rather reluctant...to say the least. Well, Black Forest has a new fan! Our server happened to be the wife of the chef/owner, and we enjoyed our chats with her. We LOVED our food, and will be going back for more!!!

We stopped by for lunch two days ago. The first thing we noticed is that the restaurant was impeccably clean. The beers on tap were Koestritzer Black Beer, Paulaner Hefeweizen, and Bitburgr Pilsener. I asked our waiter (Dmitry) which was his favorite. He responded by bringing over samples. My son liked the Bitburger Pilsener while I thought the Koestritzer Black... More

We happened upon this restaurant while traveling and we were so glad we did! They saw us in the parking lot and even opened a few minutes early for us. How nice! The food was delicious. The beer was great, the service was fantastic, and the guys running it are great. Ask them to tell you about themselves if you... More

Nice little restaurant. Had many of the German favorites, all the food was tasty and the kids ate everything we had. Portions are good sized; mains are a little pricey but thought the kids prices were a good value. Wish the beer selection was a bigger.

Black Forest is one of our favorites for date night. The food is delicious, the portions generous, and the waitstaff friendly. Definitely ask about the specials!

My husband and I have enjoyed every meal we have ever had here. We especially like the pork schnitzel and the pork kebabs with sides of red cabbage and fried potatoes. All entrees are served with a mixed salad and the house dressing, especially tasty. A couple days ago we split a dessert made with puff pastry, whipped cream, strawberries... More

Saturday, December 31, 2016 - Approximately 5:15pm. Today is our 17th wedding anniversary. We wanted somewhere special to eat. Since our background is German-Dutch; and I have never eaten real German food before, I thought maybe this restaurant would be an interesting experience. It was. Here's our story. We arrived at the restaurant, as I said, around 5:15pm. There were... More

Visited this place in search of German cuisine while vacationing at Massanutten. This place was amazing! The place is small, cozy, and quiet, perfect for families and couples alike. Our waitress was a thick-accented German lady with blonde hair who treated us excellently. (Receipt said Daniel was her name) She was knowledgeable on food and drink choices and explained foreign...

We were on a schedule while in the area and was shopping next door when we decided to grab a quick bite here. Fortunately, the restaurant was open! They have limited hours and this is not as clearly advertised but mostly through word of mouth.
