IN 1983, Karl & Ursula Selinger of Neustadt an der Weinstrasse, Germany in the Rhineland Pfalz opened The Old Stein Inn to serve the finest German cuisine. They decided to locate in Anne Arundel County just 8 miles south of Annapolis in Edgewater Maryland. The Old Stein has a traditional Biergarten to give neighbors a place to enjoy al fresco dining with friends and family. The ten German taps pour an unparalleled selection of beer. The Old Stein has been featured on "The Best Of Show" on the Food Network and has won multiple awards for the Munster Cheese & Crab Soup and the Apple Cheesecake.
The Old Stein is no run-of-the-mill chain restaurant. Diners come from all over the Mid-Atlantic (or right around the corner) to this family-owned, Maryland gem to enjoy fun, food, friends—and, or course, a cold brew in a gemütlichkeit atmosphere. Eins, Zwei, Drei, G"suffa!

The German chocolate brownie was to die for!
Doppelbach so smooth...

Ok, not the best meal there. Server a little overzealous. Asked for water with no ice because it was cold. Got water with extra ice so I was nearly choking trying to get the bread down. Order gemuse spaetzel. Iced raved about this in the past but this time it wasn’t mixed veggies, it was spaetzel and Brussels sprouts with no noticeable seasoning. Note to self and other diners-always ask what vegetables are included.

This is a fun and lively place with great food. I have almost no experience with German food and was amazed at how extensive the menu was. I opted for a wild boar sausage filled with cranberries, a special that nobody had ordered yet before according to our server. I took my chances and with an open mind was very pleased with the dish which was served on spaetzle with some potatoes, squash and sunchokes. I had a glass of New Zealand Pinot Gris which was pleasant. My son had pork chops and my husband had a sausage combo platter with bratwurst and BAUERNWURST. We shared a waffle/ice cream dessert. All in all, a new food experience and pleasant service. We did have a long wait for the food, so some bread would have been nice to include.

First visit to the Old Stein Inn!! We absolutely loved it! The decor and ambiance of the restaurant were great! Our server, Barry, was wonderful - on top of drink refills, anticipated our needs, made great food recommendations - just absolutely great! The food was excellent - our party of 6 enjoyed everything we ordered. We will definitely be back because there are a lot more things on the menu that we want to try! Thanks for a great visit!

Pretzel, wurst platter, smoked pork chop, spaetzel all great! But it’s the third visit where the German potato salad was horribly bland! Like not edible bad!

Beer is fantastic and atmosphere the best!

Please fix the German potato salad!

We were introduced to Old Stein Inn just recently and were so impressed, we invited other friends to join us there for dinner a week later! Since my experience is limited, I cannot comment beyond that we have had delicious food, excellent service, and great fun for our two visits there. One visit was on a weekend night and, even with reservations, we waited 30 minutes for a table; based on others' feedback, this is a very popular spot so reservations are recommended. Worth the drive and the wait. The other visit was on Sunday evening and, although the restaurant was busy, we had a minimal wait. Will definitely go back.

We have been here many times and even though the chefs may change, the food is always top notch. Our service on this evening was slow and forced. Sit outside if you can. The beer garden is out of this world and the ambiance out there is lovely, even in winter.

The food was great. It took a long time to get it but the service was excellent and the staff there were really friendly. We had to wait about 20 minutes for our table to be ready. I would go back.

Dining here all year round is repeatedly a fine memorable experience. Moving into the winter months provides a glimpse into showing how adept they are at serving fresh game in a delicate and complex manor. From their 10th tap to their rotating specials. . . .each visit is sure to be a unique yet familiar experience for a special occasion to family fare alike. Prost!

I have been craving Old Stein for 3 years! Finally got there and I couldn't have been more pleased! it was remodeled since the last time I was there. Ambiance was amazing, Stella was amazing, our waiter (Jake) was amazing, and the food and beer couldn't not have been any better! just what I needed! I cannot wait to go back!!

We have been coming to the Old Stein for decades. Usually, the service is top-notch. On this occasion, our server (great gal) was also the bartender. We watched her being torn between bar service and table service. This evening, I think both suffered a little as we had to wait for drinks and our tab at the end of the meal. Notwithstanding, we had a very good meal and the food was excellent, as always.
