We had a late lunch reservation at 2:30 pm on Saturday! Our first visit to the restaurant and we are happy to have discovered this gem!
Our 3 different dishes were all excellent and we will be returning for sure! The Happy Hour Menu looks amazing as well!
Don’t miss this restaurant if you are in the area!!!

Food was very good! Being from Delaware, we are still very much used to strict Covid regulations when dining out. Obviously, none of those apply in SC, as we have experienced in the past 10 Days. But overall, we would very much recommend and go back again.

Great selection of German, Austrian and (some) Hungarian classic food. German pub atmosphere with live accordion music some evenings. German beer and wine selection is super, too. Service is on point. This is our favorite place to eat in Myrtle Beach.

Another customer brought a dog to dinner, waiter had hard time cause the dog kept barking. I’m afraid of dogs. The deck boards and railing could use a little help .

We had made a reservation two weeks in advance, upon arrival we were informed wait would be 25-30 minutes, we waited 33 minutes. What is the point of making a reservation if we then have to wait?? Others coming in after us were seated. Music was too loud.
Food was great and service was GREAT.

Thanks, Greg

My wife and I have eaten here once before, and my biggest fear was this experience not living up to that first amazing meal. Well, it not only lived up to it, this meal far exceeded it. Just an amazing place, great service and quaint atmosphere. Highly, very highly recommended.

Being German I am always looking for authentic German food. My grandmother operated 2 restaurants in Erlangen(Bavaria) and I have some of her original recipes. Having found you on the internet my wife ,grandson and I drove up from Charleston. What we experienced was very disappointing. The schnitzel appeared to be portion pack meat, taken out of a freezer and put in a microwave. In order to fix potato salad you boil new potatoes in their skin , let them cool ,remove skin and SLICE them into a mixture of oil , vinegar ,egg ,mustard ,nutmeg etc. Your potato salad had no taste. The pretzels were good texture but far from authentic. You have been in business for a long time and your restaurant was packed. I am disappointed that all those people thought they were eating authentic German food.

Awesome Southern German/Austrian food . I am Bavarian and I will go back many times for a taste of home I don’t have to cook! Very authentic and tasty! Especially the Sauerkraut! But everything was good. The service was great and the owner is a gracious Austrian host.

If you like the potential of a side of COVID with your Spatzle this is the place to be.

Governor’s Order: “restaurant employees must still wear facial coverings indoors”. NOT here. I watched a server protect his chin from the virus - where he had his mask located for the entire 45 minutes I was there- pulled down on his chin and neck. Saw him sing a birthday song to a table, maskless, within 2 feet of people’s faces. It was just gross! I also saw a man behind the bar maskless. I am visiting from another state that has a state-wide mask mandate so I realize I am observing things from a different lens. But the SC governor still has a few restaurant mandates in place and the city of Myrtle B has local ordinance about masks. Old Vienna - you should be enforcing these mandates.

We had great service. The food was hot, however, the beef we ordered was not as good as the pork dish we ordered during our first visit. The bratwurst are very good but the bread is not hot. After eating the overcooked beef I am not sure if I want to go back, because I like good food all the time.
