I have a guilty secret...I've developed an addiction to the short-rib sauerbraten at the Old Stein Inn! I've been known to come in for a quick beer and sneak off with a full dinner to-go - the meat is moist and juicy, the gravy is the right amount of tart and thick, the dumplings are light but satisfying, and I...

Love this authentic German restaurant in Edgewater and we try to make it to Happy Hour once a week. The food is absolutely fabulous from appetizers to deserts. Wild boar stew, pork shank, spaetzle, red cabbage, Brussel sprouts, Apple cheesecake and sausages are to die for. The beer selection and wines are very good. Love the atmosphere and service. You...

Hefeweizen Heaven! I love German food and I love German beer, especially the Hefeweizen type. They have close to ten different types of this kind alone with probably 40-50 other beers. I had the pork Jeagerschnitzel and loved it. We will be back again and again. Only wish I had found it earlier.

Beer is pleasantly cold and authentic. 10th tap always a surprise. Jason, bartender, is quick, friendly and great at recommending a bite to eat.

This is a great local place. We stopped in during the late afternoon and sat at a cosy booth in the bar area. We were undecided about beer, so the bartender brought us a taste of two different ones. We settled on the Bitburger. They have a yummy soft pretzel served with three spreads: mustard, cheese, and something with chives.

The Old Stein is a great place for any celebration. Sit outside and enjoy the music. We like the German food which reminds us of all the German places in Cincinnati, our home town. A fun nostalgic beer garten

My boyfriend took me here for an early birthday dinner this last Saturday. We started with the Bavarian Soft Pretzel as an appetizer. It was so soft and the three dipping sauces it comes with are great. For beer, he ordered the Spaten Lager and I ordered the Kostritzer Schwarzbier. Both beers were great! For dinner, I ordered the Gemüse... More

My family has been going to the Old Stein Inn since before the fire. It's an hour drive from our home so that should tell you how much we like it. The service is always good and attentive. Over the years I have tried everything on the menu and it's all good and large portions. You always feel at home... More
