Diner Reviews
  • "Barvarian Inn did not have our reservation. They had lots of room and sat us in the empty half of the restaurant. Then the space filled up over the next hour and everyone was served food while we waited for our orders. 20 minutes before water was served. Another 20 before bread. Reservation was at 12:30 and we received our food about 2:15 and were out of there about 2:30. I would have left but it was a family lunch. Should have talked to the owner but didn't have time."

  • "We enjoyed a nice evening with good friends at the Bavarian Inn. While always busy (reservations recommended), it was easy to have a conversation without having to raise our voices. Food is always consistently good and portions are generous."

  • "Awesome staff, very accommodating. Food was really good, patio is nice. We were seated next to a very loud table, but other than that it was nice."

  • "The food and selection of wines at the Bavarian Inn are always topnotch. The service on this night wasn't great and that was a bit of an anomaly for us as it is typically very good as well. If you are looking for a very good dinner in a woodsy setting, choose the Bavarian Inn. It is well worth the commute from Calgary."

  • "I sure waited long enough to get out to The Bavarian Inn and I already can't wait to return! We came here on a Friday evening & were happy to be seated on the patio to enjoy the scenery. Our server was very attentive throughout the meal without being overbearing. He was quite funny too! We enjoyed some German beers with our starter, the Alpine Teller, a delicious assortment of meats and cheeses - perfect for sharing! My boyfriend ordered the Salmon special for dinner and enjoyed it a lot. I had to stay true to the ethnicity and absolutely enjoyed the Jager Schnitzel. It was prepared to perfection and reminded me of Sunday dinners that my mom used to make. We shared the Apfel Strudel for dessert & it was divine! We'll be back!!"

  • "Stopped in with the kids & my mum after a long day at Calaway Park. The kids' meals were very nice. Adults shared the Carpaccio, delicious! Then we waited, & waited & were finally informed that our meals had been delivered to another table. When we did receive our food my meal (elk) was very good, my mother's meal however (Jäger-Schnitzel) started out great, until she got to some raw parts (not rare, she loves rare - but raw). We promptly sent it back & it came out about 5 minutes later - and it was clear the kitchen just put the meat & sauce back into a pan to finish cooking the meat. Unfortunately this completely ruined the creamy mushroom sauce. The staff did apologize & offered 15% off our next visit, too bad my mum will not return."

  • "Living in Calgary we are always looking for a dining escape out of the City. The Bavarian never fails us. Service, food quality and ambience are always consistently good. Throw in the fire burning in the quaint fireplace in the winter and the comfortable patio in the summer with the lovely view and occasional deer wandering by and it's hard for your pulse not too slow down and take some time to relax. I am a schnitzel fan and good German food is tough to come by in these parts so we are happy that the Bavarian survived the floods and hope it will continue to prosper."

  • "Myself and two friends had a reservation and when we got there we were asked if we preferred outside or inside. I thought that was really a great option. The service and food were great with the waitress advising us of the specials and what some of the items on the menu were. We had a great time and will be back."

  • "Our adult God Daughter enjoyed her first taste of Bavarian dining on your patio for her birthday lunch. She was charmed by the menu and south German presentation of excellent Alberta produce, accompanied by the attentions of Chinese/Mexican waiter Hugo. As an ambassador for Chinese Canadian business relations she envisages The Bavarian Inn as a potential entertaining venue."

  • "We had not been to the Bavarian for awhile so decided to go for lunch. The service was friendly and professional. The menu offered a great choice and the wine list has a nice variety of wines. I chose the Jaeger Schnitzel. The meat was cooked to perfection, the sauce subtle yet tasty. My husband opted for the sausgae trio. He loved the combination and the three different mustards. Both meals came with sauercroute, red cabbage and nice veggies. We had the in house made black forest cake for dessert. It was scrumptious and not sweet, just perfect. We will definitely be back to the Bavarian Inn. This is one of the best restaurant meals we have had recently."

  • "Great place overall. Food is delicious, service is great. The only "bad" thing I have to say about our last visit is that most patrons (and this is absolutely beyond the restaurant's control) dressed and behaved as if they were in a Mcdonald's. Again, food is delicious and service is great."

  • "Another memorable evening! My husband and I enjoyed a return to one of our favourite restaurants serving fresh Canadian food in a southern German style, accompanied by a red German wine from a list that boasted a fine variety of both grapes and prices. The joy of sitting in evening sunshine, watching trees, clouds and blue sky, accompanied by natural birdsong, was only bettered by the quality of smiling service. Our next visit in August will introduce family from Italy and Australia to a 'different' style of Canadian dining as we celebrate 70th birthdays past, present and to come. A fitting location for a one of a kind experience!"

  • "This was our third time we came for dinner. The food and wine was very good as usual, also service attentative and friendly. We'll come again for sure! We were hoping to get Elk and/or Wild Boar meat but that was not available and a bit disappointing."

We have been to the restaurant several times, and have always found the food delicious and the service top-notch and friendly. We especially love to sit outside when the weather permits. It makes for a lovely evening."

  • "It's very obvious that they've changed owners and that there is no longer an award winning chef in the kitchen. The food was just average. The manager was walking around in shorts as well. Not very professional in appearance. Overall, I wouldn't recommend it."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "Food was good, but service was way too slow. Had to wait 30 minutes just to get our starter, and then another 45 minutes for our main dishes."
    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "Food was very good, however, I requested a booth by the window a number of days before the date of my reservation. Because there were only going to be 2 of us, the restaurant said they could not sit us at a booth. Instead they sat us at a table for 4 in the middle of the restaurant and left the booth empty until there was a walk-in of 2 people who they then proceeded to sit at the open booth. I understand there is a need to maximize seating and that booths fit 4 people. The waitress said the evening was a bit slow so they could have accommodated my request. I am a regular customer of the restaurant and would ask in future they accommodate special requests when they are not full."

  • "We have been to the Bavarian Inn several times and never tire of the "spetzel" noodle dish and love the variety of excellent choices on the menu! The food has always been outstanding and the service excellent. This last time we had a bit of a wait for our order, but they were busy [Friday night] and we had lots to talk so didn't really mind! Besides...the wine list is amazing so one can always sip more wine while one waits...which we did! They do an outstanding job on fried liver and onions!! If you love it....this is an amazing place to order it! Their salads were also wonderful and the only sad part of the evening was that they did not have the Toffee Pudding for dessert that night! We all highly recommend it and come annually"
