Very pleasant staff and decor. Three of our party of six ordered the pork shank. The portion is huge and perfectly roasted. It must be ordered 24 hrs. in advance. Others had sauerbraten or bratwurst, all with sides of red cabbage or sauerkraut and a starch. They have numerous desserts made in-house. There is a full service bar and Bavarian/German... More

We had dinner here before a a show at the Maryland Theater, which was is located just a quick walk up the street. Our food was scrumptious, and I loved the beautiful decor. The owner himself was present and was checking on all the tables. A tad pricey, but worth it.

They say that "Schmankerl" is something small and tasty and "Stube" is a cozy room. Therefore, after my recent first experience here, I will refer to this as the "Den... More

We don't go here very often, because we used to live in Germany. We've found that German restaurants just don't seem to translate well to the US. The food is authentic as Herr Sekula is from Germany, and is even complete with a Stammtisch (dedicated table for regulars/events/etc.). Prices are extremely high, portions smallish, and if I remember correctly, there... More

This is one of our favorite restaurants in Hagerstown. In warmer weather the beer garden is wonderful. Great authentic Bavarian food.
