Excellent food and drinks! Wagyu beef burger, fig salad, moscow mule, old fashioned and their bourbon ice cream with chocolate chip cookie are a must!

The last time I ate at this restaurant was in December 2016, the year it opened. That was a very disappointing experience. I’m delighted to report this time it was very good. The menu was reworked, staff has been trained and service attention is above average. Overall a very good value for money. Does it now match the famous Restaurant Christophorus above the Porsche Museum in Stuttgart Zuffenhausen? No, the Christophorus is in Michelin star territory. The 917 is a great place to enjoy Porsche ambience with good food and a relaxed atmosphere. I will be back.

Went on a Thur for lunch. We got a table by the window, where we enjoyed watching the cars on the track. The drinks were solid and all the food was tasty - fresh ingredients and well prepared. I highly recommend the burger! Lunch hour was a little noisy but that dissipated once several folks went back to work. There was a 5-10 min delay getting seated (host was MIA) but wasn't a big deal to us. He was nice and apologetic about it. Very friendly waitress. Overall great experience and we'll be back again.

My son, daughter-in-law and I have a very gourmet lunch before driving Porsches on the track Porsche Experience. A great way to start! My son and I had the vegan eggplant dish and my daughter-in-law had the gourmet hamburger. All delicious. No alcohol because we were doing intense driving after lunch. Highly recommend!

This is a great experience overall from the moment we walked in to the moment we left. We decided to go about an hour early to tour the place and see if we can score a last minute cancellation for the VR drive. They do have some open slots on the same day just fyi. Our reservation was at 1:30 pm and the only time they had for VR was 2 pm. We went upstairs early and they took us right in. The place has great view, great food and attentive staff. Very nice experience and would definitely go again.

This was a great experience at the 917 Restaurant. We had a large group and was given the private dining room. The waitress was the nicest young lady you could ever imagine. This was fantastic. They could use some vegetarian or vegan options and not put onions in everything without asking if you want them. The food was fantastic! The service was really good. The family had a great view of the track from the restaurant and really enjoyed the day at the Porsche Experience. Highly recommend this restaurant! EXCELLENT!!!!

We had a great time. The food was great and definitely would recommend the Wagu Burger. Most delicious We ever had so far. My husband & 2 other guests indicated plans on coming back for the food and purchasing one of the driving package. Thank you to your sign in desk crew, our waitress Camille, great service & double thumbs up to the chef/kitchen crew.

We loved the food! The Salmon plate was so good I would go back for it along with a juicy burger my partner got. We had a good time especially when the drivers went out to test drive the cars. We got to see some action.

Our waitress was so sweet and informative.
