Having eaten at Edelweiss several times in the past, we were disappointed this time. While the service was good, the food was not as well prepared as we experienced on past visits. Some German foods require hours of preparation and cooking (like roulade), other dishes should be cooked to order. All of our food seemed to have been prepared in... More

We have eaten here before. We stop when we go to Charlottesville about once a year. They never disappoint! It is an authentic little German restaurant with the most wonderful German food! I got the Sauerbraten, which was heavenly! And my husband thoroughly enjoyed his Bratwurst & Weibwurst dinner. The side are served family style and all of them are... More

We traveled with four of our German students who just won the Teen Category of the National Gingerbread House Competition from Asheville, NC home to Fredericksburg, VA. We decided to treat them with a nice German dinner at the Edelweiss Restaurant near Staunton. The food was hands down the best German food that I ever had in Virginia. Being German... More

Huge family style portions in an authentic German atmosphere. We always stop when going on 81 to visit relatives, but this was an especially cold day so the warmth of the staff and comfort food was superlative. Music and ambiance is very German and the food is great. I always have the weiner schnitzel and eat left overs for days!... More

We've dined at Edelweiss since 1984. You'd be hard pressed to find German cuisine served in Family style servings as they do. Entrees are accompanied by Bavarian Cabbage, Red Cabbage and Spatzyle--replenished as needed. Traditional German offerings, beer & homemade desserts in a cozy, homey log cabin setting and weekend live accordion music. Last night we were on a long... More

We periodically stop at Edelweiss when traveling that section of I 81. Always a treat--it's a cozy venue. Everything we've tried has been wonderful. I can't speak to the authenticity of the flavors, however I can say the food is fresh, cooked by a experienced hand and delicious! Occasionally there is an accordion player present, there are nutcrackers on the... More

My wife, daughter and I ate at the restaurant last Friday. Atmosphere was neat, a German band was playing on and off while were there. At times it could be loud because of our location, but overall the music was a nice touch. Food was very good. Since sides are shared family style, we split two meals, Rinderbraten and Bratwurst....
