I've been going to this restaurant for years and it's always consistent and delicious! Make reservations though, they are often very busy!

I lived in Germany for over 6 years and traveled throughout Europe but especially Germany. I've eaten in hundreds of different German restaurants.

Get your reservation in early as this is a very popular restaurant. Many diverse and highly rated restaurants in Manitou Springs. Do some research!

We have traveled a lot in Europe focusing on Germany, Switzerland, and Austria. We have had some wonderful meals in our travels, but the Edelweiss easily holds its own with the best! My wife and I love it

Great German food and a nice atmosphere. The restaurant is always busy and we have had to wait a few times for a table. It is a little pricey, but I think for a once every now and then meal on special occasions it is fair. I have never been disappointed with what I have ordered, always left full and... More

While I really want to love this place, I always seem to leave just a little bit disappointed. Even when you have reservations, they always seem a little behind or surprised that you showed up. Even though it is a big restaurant, they seem to rush around, take your order, and bring your food like it is a massive beer... More

I'm always impressed with something when we take our family there. The staff are courteous and friendly, especially the servers. The ambience is welcoming wherever we end up sitting. The beer is great and the menu is wonderful. I started with the schnitzel, which is the closest you can get to being in Germany, then I tried the platters to... More

After spending 10 years in Germany, we have been on a quest to find authentic German cuisine here in the good ole U.S.A. We finally found it at Edelweiss! Each visit takes us back to our German life. Whether we dine inside the lovely decorated rooms or outside in the Bier Garten, we feel at home. Every meal we have... More

We love to go to this restaurant. The food is great and the atmosphere is friendly. We love to sit outside when possible, because even though it's outside, it still feels cozy.

For over 40 years this family-owned German Restaurant on the south side of Colorado Springs has served over a million happy customers. The restaurant invites guests to dine in one of its several rooms decorated with artifacts from Europe. With strolling musicians on Friday and Saturday nights, three blazing fireplaces in winter, and an authentic "Biergarten" in summer, you are sure to enter into another world as a guest at Edelweiss.The authentic menu with a variety of Old World German dishes includes Schnitzel, Bratwurst, and Sauerbraten, with newer-age items such as Flammekuchen and Maultaschen. For those not so adventurous palates Edelweiss offers other Continental fare such as Chicken Cordon Bleu, Filet Tournedos, or Fresh Salmon Filet. Imported German Beers and Wines can be ordered to compliment any of the flavorful dishes. The European-trained Swiss Pastry Chef bakes all of the desserts from scratch, so save room for one of the rich Tortes or pastries, or take some to go.
