I had asked to go to this restaurant for my birthday. The reason was that it had everything - atmosphere, attentive staff and very good food. When we got to Traveler's , there several parties going on but Travelers has a really nice dinning room downstairs that is quite cozy and sound proof, as I didn't hear the other parties.... More

The service was fine. The waitress was attentive and friendly. I had the salmon which was a huge portion but was not very flavorful. The potato pancakes were fine and I'm glad I picked those instead of the spaetzle. The outside was very pretty but we didn't go out to take in the garden since it was January and freezing.... More

I sat in the bar area and looked out at the beautiful gardens all lit up with hundreds of lights. Tina , the owner, is the sweetest person I know I just love talking to her and love her!!!!. The...

Traveler's Rest still holds up after all these years. A stable menu of traditional items and fine service are very appreciated. We miss the former managers (Dave and Nancy) and feel a bit of friendliness is gone with the return of the former managers.

My friend loved the ambiance. We sat at a window table, looking out on lovely flowers. The food was delicious and Wednesday is "Wine and Dine" night, with a complimentary bottle of wine. The bill for two 3-course dinners was nearly $100. The service was excellent. The staff brought her dessert with a candle and sang "Happy Birthday." We were... More

The people are very friendly. It is a great spot for good German food. The gardens are beautifully kept and perfect for a stroll after dinner. The Yeager schnitzel was delicious as were the potato pancakes. The portions are generous.

The Traveler's Rest is an iconic restaurant. Always good food and service. When there ask for a table so you can view their outside garden. It's especially nice around the holidays. The owner's Tina and Gary are special people. They make you feel like family right from your first visit.

We used to meet friends here for dinner. The view to the grounds is lovely and the service is pleasant. We were very disappointed the last time we went. Nobody liked their food. I ordered a filet mignon that was definitely NOT a filet mignon cut.

I bought a house a few miles up the road from this place and dropped in for the first time yesterday to wind down from an exhausting week with my boyfriend.
