Wonderful experience. Will definitely return. Although the check in process was a bit hectic they made it work with smiles on their face. The food was beyond great. Highly recommend the pretzel it is HUGE! Great dinner!

Had lunch her. Loved the Rueben sandwich, one of the best I've ever had. Our group shared the sausage sampler and potato pancakes which were also very good. Good veer selection. Service was good. Note: portions are big/ Good atmosphere for this place.

The title of this review means "Good Food" in German, and that's exactly what I enjoyed at dinner. Cool vintage building, complete with bouncy wood floors. Great beer selection. Had the sausage sampler and smoked pork chop, and both were very good. Service was swift.

The service is good, nice selection of food, ethnic German food. The ribs were delicious and enough for the price. Overall, food is good but not outstanding. I like the reuben.

If you are German (or not)...you will be reminded of all of the tasty things you grew up with around the table! Corned Beef & Cabbage is outstanding! Many things are great...pick your favorite food memory and I am sure they have it.

Great German food with a large variety. Try the pig knuckles, they're really good. Located in a historic area with many other restaurants and bars to visit

Don’t miss a trip to this nostalgic German Style restaurant. This former hardware and seed store decor was integrated into the renovation. There seems to be a full menu of generously proportioned meals to choose from. Prices are very fair and includes a wide selection...More

Went with a large family, good service & good food...went with a sausage sampler & was a lot of food. Prices are what you’d expect $15-20 for dinners, sandwiches in the $10 range. Kids meals were good.

The Great Haus is a staple for Evansville. Great food, great atmosphere, and really large beer selection. I’ve been here many times. My favorite on the menu is the Reuben sandwich and the potato pancake appetizer. The wait staff is somewhat curt, but they’re fast...More

We had 2 friends from Germany visit and thought this would be an excellent place to take them. What a mistake. The German fried potatoes tasted like they had been boiled first and then fried. Flavorless. My BBQ chicken was baked and had cold BBQ...More
