German Restaurants in Fredricksburg or surrounding area
Any very good German food available in a San Antonio to Fredricksburg to Austin trip? I see a few listed in Fredrickburg; any experiences with them?
I like Friedhelm's Bavarian Inn in Fredericksburg pretty well. The sauerbraten and jägerschnitzel are consistently good. Sauerkraut and rotkohl are good. The spätzle not so great; get the potatoes instead. There are several other German places on Main Street, which I won't name, that aren't nearly as good. Friedhelm's isn't expensive. About $12 or $11 a plate.

"Friedhelm's isn't expensive. About $12 or $11 a plate."
Strange, Jim. When my husband went in to check their prices a couple of weeks ago he said the majority of the "German" dishes were $18 and up. He said there were maybe a couple of plates around $11 or $12, and burgers for $8, but anything with veal or pork were pretty pricey.
I just ate at Rathskellars. We did not order any German food, so I am not much help. However, the beef/cheddar/bell pepper sandwich with the poblano au jus was incredibly delicious. One of the best things I ate all trip. I also love the ambience down underground. Plus it is right beside Der Kuchen Laden where I spend all my time.
I have to agree with WasabiP regarding Der Lindenbaum, we are literally just back in the door from a 4 day trip to Fredericksburg, eating at Der Lindenbaun, Auslander, The Biergarten, and Altdorf. In our novice opinion Lindenbaum far outshined any others. They also do not take Visa, thank God I didn't leave home without my other card. Just our .02.
Thank you for the Der Lindenbaum suggestions! Both my husband and I have lived in Germany and the German food we had at Der Lindenbaum was as good as what we had in Germany. The jaegerschnitzel was fork tender with fresh mushrooms; my husband's gulasche with noodles and red cabbage was also very tasty. It was a wonderful way to enjoy Fredricksburg!
Bumping this: Anyone have current German suggestions in Fredricksburg?
For the record, I love Der Lindenbaum; of the places I've been in town, it is currently my favorite.
