Julia comes out personally to bring most everyone that visited her restaurant their food. I can't understand how people keep saying it isn't work the money. The meat covers over half of the plate. You get salad,rolls and a side( German potato salad,warm red cabbage or spaetzle.). One of these would be you choice. It is a very fast paced... More

Julia’s German Stammtisch is a family owned and operated business having earned a reputation for serving the best schnitzel you will get short of going to Germany! My wife and I ate at Julia's recently and it was one of the best meals we've had in Columbia for a very long time. Although it is tucked away in a small... More

and over priced by about $10. I am from Iowa and really looked forward to some very widely touted German food. If you go to the Amana Colonies, you get authentic German Food. This was an almost burned pork tenderloin. The mushroom gravy was thin and tasteless. The one bright spot was the house salad. I could have made a... More

My husband and I ate at Julia's recently and it was one of the best meals we've had in a long, long time. We had the cheesy jagerschnitzel and home fries, which comes with a wonderful salad before the meal and rolls. The food was absolutely fantastic and more than either of us could finish. The service was wonderful and... More

The food is not that great and it's way overpriced. I've never had real German food, but I would hope it tastes better. I ordered spaetzle with my entree and it was very tasteless. My friend ordered the potato salad and it has much more flavor. Great alternative to the 'usual' Columbia lunch restaurants, but I won't add it to... More

Through Trip Advisor I was able to locate one of the rare German restaurants in South Carolina. Julia's was rated very highly among restaurants in Columbia, so I decided to try it. My cousin and I visited Julia's for lunch on Thursday, January 24. We walked in at 11:00 and had our pick of tables. By the time we left,... More

I lived in Germany for 3 years and loved the food. It's hard to find good German food, but Julia's hits the mark every time. Brings me back to the gasthaus' where I ate regularly in Bavaria. It's tiny and you may have to wait, but it's worth it and Julia herself will come around to see what you think... More

Having lived in Germany for four years I was skeptical at first. Julia's is not large but the setting is very authentic and the food is what I remember for the little "hole in the wall" place I visited in Bavaria. Nothing fancy here but great food and large portions in a little slice of Germany. The only drawback is... More

After seeing on trip advise found it and at first thought twice about trying it because it is a hole in the wall. But the food was very good. Family run business and a I think the owner is also the cook. Serving are very large. Food cooked fresh while you are there.
