We visited on a very busy day, but as always, the food was tremendous. Authentic German food and lots of extras (cheeses, oysters, shrimp, etc). Service is always great but the key to the quality and excellence of the Bavarian Inn is the food. Can't...More

We actually ate in the Rathskeller for casual dining. The food is pricey, but delicious. I had the beef tips. Outstanding! Next time I will try the pheasant or venison. Of course I had to have the German chocolate cake for dessert!

The Bavarian dining room and patio are great venues, no doubt. Not big-city great, mind you, but great for a small town. But the Bavarian has an almost-secret, in the form of the Rathskeller. It's downstairs and has a delightfully funky atmosphere of its own....More

As much as I love the Bavarian Inn Restaurant I would recommend the chicken, not because I don't like the way they "do" seafood but because I LOVE the way they do chicken!
