Old Stein Inn
Super findWe were recommended the Old Stein Inn from our friends about a year ago. We regret waiting so long to make a reservation. The food was great with complimenting service. The proportions were exactly the right size and the food has a taste that sets it apart from other restaurants. We will be going back. I would highly recommend.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMRepeatable for sure!!!First time - wont be last. Grew up eating food prepared German style, especially with cabbage and potatoes. The beer I chose excellent to accompany the food. Dessert (apple cheese cake) wrapped up the great meal. A touch dark after the sun went down perhaps on purpose for ambiance. The casual atmosphere makes it easy to enjoy. Several families were there with children so be prepared to experience such. Definitely will return and enjoy the biergarten once the weather has warmed up a bit.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Dining ExperienceI found The Old Stein in my chance and after having our first dining visit, we cannot wait for an opportunity to return.
My only thing that I would change would be a second location closer to my house in Columbia :0)5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMYummy!Old Stein Inn is always a great place to have a beer with friends in the beer garden and try something on the daily specials menu! Reservations with Open Table are easy and I've never had an issue with a reservation.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding food and thereOutstanding food and there is no other place like it in Annapolis. A real German biergarten!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMLively restaurant with GermanLively restaurant with German music playing in the back round. The accordion player made rounds and got the crowd singing and clapping along with the songs. Food was excellent and authentic German. The beer was outstanding and the staff is uber friendly and willing to explain the menu. Great for parties of six. Eat inside or out in the beer garden when the weather is nice!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMGood German restaurants areGood German restaurants are getting few and far betweeen. The Old Stein Inn is one of those few. Since the closing of the Wurzburg Haus all on Muncaster Mill Rd out near Rockville, Old Stein Inn has been my go to for German food. What is especially appreciated is that it is smoker friendly as long as you are ok with being outdoors and in a corner. We got complimented on our choice of cigars and shared them with folks who came over. Finding a place where you can enjoy a good meal, some good drinks, and settle back and have an after-dinner cigar while socializing is a real treat. Only downside: Parking is TIGHT! Wish the lot was bigger, this place is VERY popular.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was great, but theThe food was great, but the waitress wasn't very attentive. Had to grab her attention and ask for drinks each time they were needed. Otherwise, just what would be expected in a German-American restaurant.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMIf you love German beer andIf you love German beer and fairly authentic food, you will want to visit Old Stein.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat dining experience, foodGreat dining experience, food was good, atmosphere much better since the renovation and Sylvia is fabulous as always.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMWilder und WunderbarerGerman cuisine at it's finest!

If you remember the old Haussner's in Baltimore, and miss it like I do, you'll love the Old Stein. Not that has the Haussner's artwork. Old Stein is more like a real old country inn, great atmosphere, top notch friendly fun service, and delicious authentic German dishes.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of my daughters spentOne of my daughters spent a semester studying in Germany, and loves to go to the Old Stein Inn. What could be a better testiment to how good the food and beer is there?3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had been to the Old SteinWe had been to the Old Stein several times before the fire and were curious about the reconstruction. They did a terrific job of recreating the German gasthaus ambiance. The staff was courteous and friendly. The was fantastic and the beer was so good! On our next trip, we will sit out in the biergarten, it was a tad to chilly this time.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWhile the new after-fire buildingWhile the new after-fire building is nowhere near as charming and romantic as the original the food, if anything, has gotten even better. We ordered a good variety of dishes and everything was excellent - especially their red cabbage.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious, great service, A++In my first visit to Old Stein Inn, I was completely impressed. While the location is a bit small, our reservations were honored the second we walked in, even though the restaurant was already PACKED.
My husband and I ordered the Bier Kase fries as an appetizer. DELICIOUS! The fries were a bit salty, but the smokeyness of the cheese and the sweetness of the dip canceled out any over-saltiness.
For our meals, I got the port schnitzel (perfect size, perfectly fried, delicately seasoned), and my husband got the wurst (great portion, cooked to perfection).
For our wallet, this will be more of a "special occasion" place (also due to the fact that it's an hour drive from Baltimore), but we will DEFINITELY be back again.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThe ambiance in the new additionThe ambiance in the new addition is much improved over the last time we were there, especially with the Christmas decorations. The 4-person booths are a cosy addition, though the noise could be loud when seated near to large parties at the center tables. The beer list is fantastic; 10 types of German beer on tap, and many others in bottles. Though the menu had changed since the last time we were there, the kitchen still made a special dish off the old menu for us. All in all, it may be a bit of a drive for you, but if you like good German food and beer, this is definitely the place.12/28/2012 12:00:00 AM
