The Biergarten is located through the restaurant in the back. I liked the seating but getting some shade was difficult on an 86 F day. The food is traditional Bavarian but nothing special. The beer is palatable and enjoyable. The beer is served reasonably cold...More

Delicious. Clean. Friendly. Couldn't have enjoyed it more. It has a great location and history. It is located right on the main square in old town and is easy to find. I would also recommend its hotel for superior lodging.

We found this when looking for somewhere pleasant to eat outside as it was very good weather when we were in Rothenburg. Found this on Tripavisor and tried it. Unlike most restaurants, it doesn't just have tables on the street, but a nice garden at...More

The location is just off the market square , and the schnitzel is delicious. What really distinguishes this restaurant, however, are the friendly, happy waitresses. All this makes for a happy dining experience. BTW, try eating at the community table for a cultural experience.

We stopped for dinner prior to the Night Watchman Tour. The food was alright, but the service was wonderful. The restaurant is right in the town center and has a nice terrace out back.

Authentic German food served in a quaint restaurant or in the beer garden. Good price for the quality of the food.

Great German food, beer, and wine. Ate here multiple times, not just because it was convenient, but because it was good and reasonably priced. It was white asparagus season when we visited, so they had a special menu highlighting this delicacy.

We enjoyed a late lunch of traditional favorites and some interesting options here. Two of our group were non-meat eaters, but found plenty of fish and vegetarian options. Their beer is brewed off-site, but especially for them, so is worth checking out, especially if you...More

Our restaurant specializes in Franconian fare with tasty dishes like marinated beef, and moist roast pork soaked in an unforgettable gravy, and a side of red kraut and potato dumplings. Try it with a glas of Franconian wine.

Meet the locals in our restaurant, enjoy your beer in our beer garden - or just have a little break with soups, salads or sausages...
