Edelweiss German-American Restaurant is one of Chicago’s favorite German restaurants. It has been a family-owned dining destination for over 30 years.

The menu features an impressive array of traditional, well-crafted German specialties along with classics like the American steak, chicken and seafood dishes. A gluten free menu and kids menu are also available. We offer 16 beers on tap as well as a variety of craft and international beers, wine and schnapps. Our bar area is an excellent venue to watch sports and play the slot machines while enjoying our daily bar and menu specials.

Very nice German restaurant, particularly what with so many in the Chicago area having closed in recent years. Good food, friendly people- what's not to like.

Our server was Marion and she was rude and had a bad attitude. Any question you asked her it seemed like you were bothering her. Food was good but the rude service makes you not want to come here. Marion needs a attitude adjustment.

We have been going to Edelweiss for years...since I was a little girl. And we bring our kids here now. Wonderful German food and often good solid German music. The house manager is terrific and she really cares to make everyone have a great dining experience. Many of the wait staff have been there for a number of years so they are solid with the service. LOVE this great longtime establishment on the far NW side/Norridge!

I am extremely disappointed in our reservation at Edelweiss. I am not sure if it was Open Tables mistake or the restaurant. I had a reservation for a special occasion on Friday, Feb 9th. I received an e-mail confirmation as well as text notifications reminding me of the reservation. When we arrived, the restaurant was CLOSED. Closed! I received no communication of this closure. This ruined my night and special occasion. Ended up at Millers Restaurant that was near by. They took us right away and was the best service ever! Not sure if I would recommend using Open Table or visiting this restaurant again.

Very good authentic German food!!... The ambiance of this place makes you feel like you are in a German village .. Service is good with a nice list of alcohol.

Looking for an authentic old school German restaurant? They are that, but with a slightly upscale touch to the food. Service was good, seating comfortable, and food delicious. The desserts seemed like they were prepared by a pastry chef rather than just scooped or cut out of a store bought container. Would like to come back and experience dinner with live music on a weekend.

Love Edelweiss for our holiday family dinner. Decorations are lovely. Great Service but to be honest the food was just OK. I think I remember the food being better. I had the Chicken Kiev and so did my Daughter in Law. It was dry and tough. I won't order it again, not for $18.00 per plate. The soup was good and they always put bread on the table.
