Schnitzel Haus: "Bay Ridge Authentic German" Top 5 Page for this destination Brooklyn Restaurant Tip by TempNomad

Brooklyn Restaurants: 103 reviews and 88 photos

This restaurant just opened in late Spring 2006. With appetizers ranging from smoked trout filet to Bavarian meat salad to camenbert cheese, it's NOT a place to start a diet. However, there is a lengthy menu with something for just about everyone. Several salads lighten the load, and the sausage platters are authentically served with sauerkraut, German potato salad (no mayo here!) or even a fresh pretzel. There is poultry, lamb, fish, and various meats represented on the menu.

What's a vegetarian to do? Well, I ordered the Reibekuchen (potato pancakes) and a mixed salad. Next time I think I'll go for some cheese, but the pancakes were SO good. There is a vegetarian platter available that has pancakes, spaetzle, red cabbage and fresh vegetables. That sounds good too.

Don't forget the desserts because the warm apple strudel and black forest cherry cake looked really delicious. There's also a decent selection of beers and wines available. A full bar is there as well.

The decor is hunting lodge Bavarian, and the servers wear traditional dress.
