    Try Jagerhaus in Anaheim. Wear your lederhosen.

      The Jägerhaus (which is in a totally non-descript minimall on Ball Rd. right next to the 57) is probably the only game in town for sit-down German food. Happily, it's quite tasty.

          The Red Lion on Glendale Blvd, near to where Silverlake crosses it. Haven't eaten there in years, but used to be good. And very authentic as far as the wait staff in beer hall type costumes. Used to hear a lot of German spoken there, but it has been a long time.

              Besides Jaegerhaus, I would also recommend the Old World Village restaruant for some German fare. You can find out more about it here


              They also host Oktoberfest activities in the Fall, and lots of other fun things to do in the shops there. Go have a good time! Zum Wohl!

                Lowenbrau Keller on 3211 Beverly Blvd in L.A. is a very interesting German restaurant, run by a couple of old German ladies with a load of German props. Decent food, but be ready to wait. Go during Octoberfest and you'll be surrounded by rowdy Germans!

                  I will ditto the Lowenbrau Keller. Family run and definately worth it for the "ambiance" although you can't tell from the outside. Traditional german fare and nice people (and reasonable priced).

                  I'm fond of the Red Lion Tavern.

                  Several menus and photos here:
