2 great accordion players but only 1 engaged with anyone in the restaurant. Fairly loud when we visited but that's expected on a Saturday evening. Had drinks before our reservation and had a lengthy delay getting them, despite seeing them sitting on the bar for 10 minutes. Visit years ago seemed more cozy. The feel now was that the noise carried a long ways with the newer, open area of the bar. Still a great atmosphere.

If you enjoy German food this place may be good. I honestly can't say if it is good or not. We came to the conclusion we don't like German food.
The waitress had an attitude from the start. When we walked in to get seated she said with attitude "Do you have a,reservation"? There were only 4 other people in the whole bar and restaurant. It went down hill from there.
The Constantine player was nice. Not the music the man.

the most authentic german beer hall environment you'll find in Minneapolis, this place is perfect for large gatherings and old world eats. No problem accommodating our group of 20 with a reservation!

Authentic guesthaus experience just as if back in Germany. We dined on "old" side of main level. Still the same decor as always. Ordered all the standard German fare. Recommend the platter for two with brats, jaegerschnitzel, rouladen and smoked pork chop. Enough food for 3 to 4 people. Possibly should trade the knudel for extra helping of mashed potatoes instead. Gravy is excellent. We enjoyed the accordion player as normal. This is probably our 7th time over the past few years.

It was good as usual. We forgot to request Laura so we were sad. We had 2 birthday and nothing. Last time we were there for birthdays I thought the birthday person got a great. Always loads of food.

I've heard about Gasthof's for years from friends and this was our first visit. It did not disappoint! Our server was amazing and the food was outstanding! We got the house platter for two and left with close to 3 pounds of food leftover. So worth it!

The best Pork hock I had since one I had in Hamburg Germany. With sauerkraut and Warm German potato salad. Topped off with Black Forest Tort and a shot of Raspberry schnapps and coffee. A strolling accordionists played some good German polka music.
Brought back some great food and music memories.

Buffet was okay. Taste of food was marginal. The Sauerbraten was over cooked, desert selection was limited. No real vegetable selection. Disappointing experience especially for the high price of $27/person.

Gasthof's has never failed to facilitate an amazing evening! My friends and I love everything a out this place. When we describe our experiences here, we run out of superlatives! The food is decadent, the beer catalog is impressive, and the atmosphere is, quite simply, the very picture of welcoming. From the moment you walk in to when you leave (with a full stomach AND a full heart), Gasthof's is beaming with a sense of sincerity in how every member of the staff goes out of their way to help you and yours have the best time possible. This visit, just like many others, ended with us being joined by another group to cap the evening of by sharing a boot!

Excellent, service, food, value and ambiance. If you are bringing youngsters, you might want to bring ear protection. It can get very loud at time. Like a Vikings game kinda loud.

This restaurant came highly recommended from my friend Erica G who lives and works in the metro . My husband and I were there to celebrate our 36th! wedding anniversary. We don’t have the opportunity for German food in northern Minnesota. The portions were huge and the food delicious! Service and atmosphere added to a wonderful evening. We’ll be back when hopefully some of the never ending road construction slows down a bit.

The accordian player was almost as good as my Dad was. He was interesting to talk with. Wiener schnitzel ismy favorite. I wish I lived closer so I could try other foods. Other guests enjoyed chicken and pork hok. Can't wait to return

We visited the restaurant on mothers day, party of 4 at 12:00. The food was good, however in all the dishes we obtained they were nothing less than luck warm, disappointing. We would not come back for another buffet, sorry.
