Nice, relaxing mealing have traditional Chateaubr and. Well worth going. Service is slower than your typical rushed American restaurant but great for spending time with the people with you.

Couples vacation and we had our first dinner in the Rathskeller at the Bavarian Inn. Schweinbraten, Elk chops and more. All perfectly prepared. Don't forget dessert... German nutball, Black Forest cake 😀 All very yummy!

The restaurant has beautiful outdoor seating near the river. The staff were very accommodating. The food was good but did not live up to the hype. Crab cakes were a bit dry. Beet salad was a favorite. Dessert options were plentiful and delicious. The ambiance...More

Dinner in the bar was a disappointment. Piano player drowned conversation and food quality really no better than a carvery. Size of serving is no indication of quality, despite the over enthusiastic waiter. Breakfast in the dining room was transformed midway through from enjoyable to...More

As much as I love the Bavarian Inn Restaurant I would recommend the chicken, not because I don't like the way they "do" seafood but because I LOVE the way they do chicken!

There is outdoor seating available, as well as eating in your room. Yet, I can not say if the Inn is pet friendly. It would be of great use to you to call ahead to clarify. There should always be accommodation to service... More
