With fewer German restaurants available in Chicago, the Edelweiss is very good and more affordable than the Hofbrauhaus in Rosemont. Good selection of items and prepared well but service can be slow at times.

Went with groupon didn't notice it was only for lunch but guess we're gonna go back anyway because it was great!!! Friendly staff, good beer selection, huge pork shank(3 lbs), and a traditional band... Everyone there was involved in the party atmosphere so we felt comfortable. Only thing was that it got really loud sometimes but not a bad thing... More

(Actually 3 1/2 stars): We've enjoyed Oktoberfest at Edelweiss for the past 15 years. Next year, though, we may go elsewhere. Why? First, the schnitzel and other Teutonic standards remain good and hearty, but yipes! the dinner menu has been pared down to just 10 appetizers, 10 entrees, and 5 desserts. Menu prices remain unchanged, however entree prices now include... More

Had a wonderful lunch from appetizer to entrée, and on to desert. The schnitzel was delicious Jäger style with mushroom and bacon in a hunters sauce, my guest had the baked cod with mash potatoes and spinach that was done to perfection. Dessert, toasted coconut creme brûlée, need I say more? Go and experience delicious German cuisine !

We loved the food, ambiance and our waiter. Live musician was perfect. The building and decor is a bit old but the friendly atmosphere make up this shortcoming. Service was excellent.

We try and get here at least 3 times a year. Quite disappointed with our last visit with their new but not improved menu. Understandably, prices have gone up. However, you used to get choice of soup of the day or a dinner salad and two sides to accompany the entree. Now you only get the soup (salad is $3... More

We really enjoyed the food. The sausages & sauerkraut were excellent. Really liked the many selections of beer. But we were seated alone, in a far off corner & forgotten (a few times). When we finally were able to pay, the server seemed to have communication issues. After some awkward moments, we sorted it all out. Many other reviewers commented... More
