I have been to the Gerst Bavarian Haus several times over the past ten year, and my last visit was just as good as all of the others. The place is very comfortable, the wait-staff is very attentive and friendly, the food seems very authentic Bavarian, and the extensive beer selection is this beer drinker's dream. The folks at the neighboring tables are friendly, and it is just a good place to go to eat or to go for a drink with one or many friends. If you are in Evansville, it should not be missed.

The Gerst Haus is an old Evansville tradition, with lots to look at in the restaurant. Features a large, draught beer selection. I do love the red cabbage side dish! However, I was disappointed in my food selection, possibly because I was not able to spend a lot of time studying the menu due to a very chatty dinner companion. This is the second time I've been here and so far, not overly impressed with the food.

Went yesterday at lunch, Saturday. They were not busy. Got Ruben and it was good as usual, but German fries. It w as if they had just cut up a potato and fried it. No onion, no taste. The cook needs to go up to Hilltop and take lessons. Had them in the past and they were good, not this time.

My wife split an order of sauerbraten as the portion was too big for one, especially after an appetizer of kraut balls. Both were excellent! The choices of beer are extensive, but I love their frosty fishbowls of Gerst dark beer. I try not to miss the Friday clam chowder or the Sunday Bloody Mary Special.

German, through and through! So many beers on tap - they have their own menu. Historical building was a hardware store and brewery
