Went to Eichbaum Tresen because of the schnitzel review on TripAdvisor and was rewarded with the best schnitzel I have ever eaten. I arrived early and sat outside in the 'beer garden' which consisted a tables under a few trees. In roughly 30 minutes, the place was full. A couple of people brought their dogs and the waitress would serve... More

we ordered the schnitzel and some pasta dishes. The restaurant was not very busy inside but Most of the tables outside were full as it was a warm day. We ordered and waited, and waited, and waited, and waited...An hour and a half after ordering our food it finally got to the table. No apologies, no sorry. We ordered more... More

Cozy and busy local restaurant that was truly and excellent meal. It was indeed, for me, a notch above the many schnitzel restaurants I have been to. The service was fast and the staff polite and the atmosphere was quite nice.

Go there, have a couple of beers and try to eat one of their schnitzel with cheese cream and champignons. A big big schnitzel. The biggest you ever seen. It's a sort of man vs food match. But I must say a delicious match! Go and try!

I walked to Heuser Eichbaum Tresen after a long day of business meetings. I wasn't very hungry, so I only ordered a salad. It was amazing! It was covered in tomatoes and cheese and had a creamy dressing that wasn't Ranch and wasn't Italian but was a little like both and really good. It absolutely hit the spot and was... More

This restaurant does everything right. The only thing I could almost fault them with is making the schnitzel so darn big. This restaurant easily has the best schnitzel in town and of all the places I've tried in the Hessen state. The place can fill up pretty fast, so make a reservation, and they only take cash. I would ding... More

I have eaten here before and always enjoy it. The Schnitzel is amazing!! Be careful, the schnitzel is HUGE! I have never finished one, but always take the extra home... it is that good. The service is great and the staff speak many different languages. The only thing is that they DON'T take credit cards... only cash. (minimized with an... More

In the schnitzel that I ordered, some braun string was founded! So I just complained about this to a waitress! She went to Chef and came back.. told me that was the bark of onions! And she said that "No one dies, eating the bark of onions". This time she would provide a drink for free, but next time when... More

I had the schnitzel with mushrooms and cheese, (I believe the cheese was a local german cheese called kääse). It was definitely the best schnitzel I've ever had and one of the best German meals I've ever had. The staff is friendly and speaks English. They were kind to me, like most Germans, despite being an American tourist. I tried... More

The schnitzel is the best I have ever had (50+ restaurants). Very fresh and tasted fantastic with large portions... come hungry. Make reservations! It is a small place, but the demand is so high they need reservations... even during the week. The service is good and the atmosphere is inviting and warm. Prices are mid level (Schnitzel was approximately 14-17... More
