Recs in Fredericksburg

Lily Dale Mar 28, 2009 05:24 AM

I'll be traveling to Fredericksburg this week for a five day vacation. Any recommendations on restaurants I should try or avoid? I was there a year ago but I know things change....

Thanks for all the tips.

    Der Lindenbaum in downtown is great German at good prices. Always dependable. Must go to Peach Tree for lunch! Awesome. They have a fabulous multi-grain bread!

      Thanks for the recs. Quick question - I dined at the Herb House last year which was very nice. Has anyone been there recently?

        Was at Der Lindenbaum yesterday, it was awful. The German potato salad was honey sweet and there Saurbraten special was so sickeningly sweet I had to send it back. Bread, brats and soup were OK, but it's definitely the Auslander for us next time.

        The Fredericksburg Brewery had a terrific Chicken Fried Steak, and decent beer when my wife and I ate there.

          We were in Fredericksburg about a month ago and had a wonderful breakfast at the Rathskeller. I had delicious biscuits with gravy that reminded me of childhood. So tasty...

          Here's the link. There are some photos and the address but no menus as they reportedly change daily:

            We had a good meal at August E's a couple of weeks ago. Expensive for F'berg, but good food and the service was excellent.

            Not as upscale, but a cool place to have lunch outside, is Silver Creek Beer Garden. I had a very good german sausage combination plate with three kinds of sausage, german potatoes, purple cabbage and sauerkraut. A guy with a guitar singing Texas music sat on the porch performing.
