Stopped in on a Friday evening to finally try the Bierstube. So many people have raved about it, but I'm convinced it's the staff, not the food that keeps people coming back. Our waitress was excellent; she made suggestions and answered many questions. It still took almost an hour to get our food and what we did get was mediocre... More

Worst food and service we have ever experienced!! We will never, ever go back again, overpriced food and terrible service!! We waited over 1 hour for our food and the restaurant was not busy, we were the only table there lol order food!! The bread on our sandwiches was old and dried out, hamburgers were not juicy but tough, salad... More

In town for Covered Bridge festival and looking for something for dinner we don't get at home. This sure hit the spot. Lots on the menu, although a bit pricey. Service was very good. Their red cabbage is different. Not sure I'd order it again. Sauerkraut was awesome!

Hadn't been there for awhile so was pleasantly surprised to find the quality of the food and service up to standard. Our meal was excellent and the service good. I am sorry that the torte from Heidelberg Haus is no longer on the menu, but my rouladen was exceptionally good and the sauerkraut balls are still something special!

Food is on par with what I've gotten in Germany (Bavaria). I can't think of anything I haven't enjoyed. Sometimes they are out of certain things (such as bratwurst this past visit), and it's not cheap, but the portions are filling and the staff are great.

Long wait and very crowded, but believe it was overbooked because of holiday. Food excellent, except had run out of first choice. There again, think they got "slammed:" with customers. Same for service. Too many guests for staff.

I have lived in Germany, and was happy to stumble into the Bierstube. The food has an authentic feel. The sauce on the Rahmschnitzel was outstanding. I lucked out by choosing a Tuesday night, when draft beer (with many German choices) is available at half-price. The only sour note concerned the "Fancy Pickled Beets" side dish. These came right out... More

Really nice little place. Great atmosphere - with great food and beer to match. Lots of favorites from the old country, well prepared and cheerfully served. Definitely worth coming back to - though the fresh streusel may be the death of me!

What a great place for a memorable family meal. Definitely go for family style. For just a few dollars extra per person, you get all sides brought to your table, along with your entree. You really cannot beat this! The servers are extremely helpful and very knowledgeable about the dishes. When are you in Terre Haute, make this a stop.... More

We had not had German food in a long time so why not? Maybe for Terre Haute this good but I would rank it as average. Weinerschnitzel is what we both ordered along with spaetzle. I had the red cabbage and my husband had fries. I have always had capers with weinerschnitzel but here were none. The spaetzle were tough.... More
