Online reservation system wouldn't allow me to make a reservation for our large group and was advised to call restaurant. For 2 days I tried calling at different times of day but no one answered and there was no voicemail/answering machine that picked up so that I could reserve. So, upon our arrival, our group was unable to sit all together. It was a special occasion, so that went over like a lead balloon.

Food was just okay...surprising because we've always enjoyed it. Even during early pandemic days.

Also, music was way too loud for conversing. Staff was friendly, but it didn't compensate for the total experience. It'll be awhile before we attempt another outing at the Keizer location.

The restaurant does not have sufficient blinds to deal with the sun. It is energetic and noisy. It has a large volume, but social distancing is a little marginal. The food was good, however, the waiter described a stein as being 32 oz or a pint. This a German style restaurant with numbers of German beers. A stein is either a half-liter or a full liter. We had asked if we could move to the next table because of the sun, and the staff member setting it up said that the table had been reserved. We had made a reservation as well, but there was no choice to request a specific table. We would have preferred to be outside, but it was not open. We are retired and enjoy eating at interesting places, however, I don't think they are appealing to our demographic. I doubt we will be back soon.

We always love coming here! The only problem is the lack of most of their German beers (Bitburger especially!) due to the COVID supply chain problems. Hopefully those will come back soon!

HI Jason! Good news, Bitburger is back! We apologize, global shipping has been a little backed up but it is looking like it is catching up and we are seeing our tasty imports again! See you next time!

It had a great relaxed atmosphere. The service was prompt and friendly. Drinks were a fair price. The green apple schnitzel was amazing and they accommodated my request to substitute spatzle for the potatoes no problem. My friend enjoyed her chicken jager schnitzel as well. They also offer some non Bavarian food options if your palate prefers. I definitely would return!

I went there with my Family for my birthday. I got right in from in from using this app. I figured it would be super noisy being all open but it wasn’t. Food is fantastic and our server did an amazing job. Thanks for making my birthday special

Highly recommend the brunch, especially the Classic Benedict served on crispy potato pancakes, delicious thin sliced Black Forest ham, perfectly poached eggs, and the best hollandaise sauce ever! And of course the cheese fondue is to die for. Noise level is a little too “energetic” for us.

Our server may have been new. He did not refill waters, missed an order, was awkward when there was a minor issue.

Food was fine. Bargarten prices.

Hard to carry on a conversation because it’s a big open room, but that’s German style I guess. Patio seating is good but lots of evening sun. Food is always good - options for non German cuisine too.

Fun place with tradtional yet updated German beer hall feel. Eclectic menu with expected German fare plus popular favorites like Seared Ahi Tuna, Cobb Salad and Ribeye to name a few.
We opted for the INCREDIBLY delicious cheese fondue and bread. One Reuban-meh, we',ve had better, the Ahi--you can skip it--and Bread Pudding which was delish. I guess, rhe lesson is stick with German dishes at German eateries. Oh,we were looking forward to beer but their kegs were out of service so it was bottled ir canned. I'll gladly return once i can get their draft beer and next time Ill get a Pretzel. They looked beautiful.

This was our first visit and we will be back! The schnitzel, spaetzle, prime rib pretzel sandwich, were absolutely AMAZING. Highly recommend and we will be returning on a regular basis! Initial service after being seated was slower than expected during 2:30pm time slot, although the restaurant was fairly slow, however, the food was worth the wait!!

We were getting tired of chefed up cuisine on our vacation and just wanted an enjoyable meal and a beer. This is definitely the spot for that. Schnitzel was delish--and so filling I couldn't finish it all. Several German beer options on draft as well as a couple Oregon brews.

Gustav's has been disappointing of late and our Father's Day supper was another example. Here's why:
1. The very limited selection of German beers was disappointing. They even ran out of the one that they had and I ended up with a local brew for my second round.
2. The very limited selection of German cuisine on the menu: no Sauerbraten, no Rouladen, and the schnitzel was only available in chicken and pork. What happened to veal?
3. Instead of the German cuisine one would expect, we were surprised to find Italian and Asian influences, such as ahi tuna and a shrimp dish with basmati rice.
4. we did enjoy the cheese fondue and pretzel for an appetizer.
5. In spite of the challenges our server was excellent and the honored our reservation by seating us immediately.

Waitress was the only positive thing of our dinner. We were sitting next to 6 extremely loud young ladies. We asked to move and that was not a possible we were told. We love German food and this was the worst we have had. We had made are reservations weeks ago and were looking forward to trying it and will not return. Lyle Florence and Barb

The schnitzel and the German potato salad were absolutely delicious. The lentil soup was tasteless, watery and had almost no lentils in it at all. Gustav's in Clackamas has the best lentil soup. However, we will come back here again.

Saturday brunch with a friend—I had the Belgian Waffle and a blackberry mimosa, and she had the Farmer’s Breakfast...everything was delicious; nothing left on either of our plates! We ate outside, as it was a beautiful spring morning, and our server, Mason, was outstanding! Delightful experience!
