“Just okay”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

Very pricey and limited menu to German foods. Prices are on the high side and portion size is on the small size. You need to order appetizers, main meal and desert not to leave there feeling. Hungry. Dishes are tasty and well presented. Ambiance is wonderful with fireside seating.

“Hidden gem in Southbridge, MA”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

You have to try this European restaurant to believe it. Found this gem which is in a 100+ years old house, beautifully maintained while visiting family in the Southbridge area last Sunday afternoon . There were five in our party, 4 adults and a 9 year old boy. They have a nice children's menu so he also was very happy! The restaurant and Inn is owned by a family with a long experience in good food and lodging. We were served by the owners' daughter in a beautiful Bavarian dress. She was charming, helpful and excellent in her job. The dining rooms are lovingly decorated in various old European styles. The best part, of course, is the delicious choices on the menu including gluten free dinners and desserts. We will be back!

“Das is gut”
Reviewed 5 April 2014 via mobile

We meet friends for lunch halfway between our homes. Usually we meet at the Publik House in Sturbridge but this time decided to meet at the Vienna Restaurant and Historic Inn. What a pleasant surprise. The food was delicious. My husband had the Boar Shank and I had the Weiner Schnitzel. Our friends had the Weiner Schnitzel and Jager Schnitzel. We had appetizers of potato pancakes, Hungarian Goulash soup and Caesar salad. Dessert was Sacher Torte and Mozart(pistachio) Torte. The service was slow but we weren't in a hurry. A lovely afternoon with good friends and good food. We will return.

“Character and Excellent Cuisine”
Reviewed 28 March 2014

As soon as you walk in, the dining area is very intimate and there is character from wall to wall. I had never had German/Austrian dishes before and I was excited to try something new. Everything was very tasty. I really wanted an apple dessert they had, but it was all gone (I guess that means it's tasty!). All the staff was very friendly and they all make you feel very welcomed.

“Good German Food”
Reviewed 7 March 2014

A very quaint place with lots of character. The food's not bad either. Make sure you have a lot of time because the service was a bit slow. I think it is only run by a husband & wife team or maybe the snow kept the rest of the help from coming to work. The menu has a large selection of German dishes plus they have a lot of specials. The house salad dressing was very good.
