The brat was great, the red cabbage wonderful, the German potato salad not to my taste (potatoes overcooked, no sweetness at all), and the apple strudel odd (placed on a sea of custard - what the heck?!?!?!?). Good location, great ambiance, fantastic service.

Great location, friendly staff, great beer and wine selections and craft cocktails, too! It was hard to choose what to order as it all looked so good! Our solution was to eat there 2 nights in a row! Both meals were superb. If you crave German authenticity, you will be so happy to eat here.

Our group (of Houston SJCC Corvette caravaners, returning from the NCM 25th anniversary weekend celebrations) grew to 14, but was wonderfully accommodated and served by management & staff alike (especially our server, Caitlyn). The atmosphere, food & beverage, and service were all top notch! Highest ratings possible!

Booked via open table for 8 PM, seated at 8:15, not too bad. Ordered the pretzel, standard German requirement, was hard as a rock on one side ( not standard German). Took an hour for the main course to be delivered, about 30 minutes more than it should have. Rarely saw our waitress at our table. Family behind us were comped their dessert because it took so long. The dessert we ordered when we ordered our meal never showed, but luckily was not on the bill. Good thing we will be in Germany where quality of food, presentation and service are ALL expected to be high.

On the high note was the violinist playing - the high note of the night (no pun intended).

I made a timely reservation online a week before, when we got there we had to wait 30 minutes before being seated. Once we were seated we got drinks and an appetizer fairly quickly. However that’s when we no longer saw our waitress and the food we ordered never came out, after waiting for 90 minutes our waitress came to inform us she had checked on our food and there were only 3 more people ahead of us. We decided to leave and not have dinner. I would never recommend visiting this establishment and would never go back. They are extremely unprofessional and the overall service was horrible at best. Save your money and time.

My Wife and I directed to Steinhaus by a couple of friends and it didn't disappoint. My wife, who is of German descent, is a very good cook of traditional German food. This was passed on to her by her mother who was also a fantastic cook. Over the years we have tried many "German" restaurants and were disappointed. Not with Steinhuas Keller. It was great! The Spätzle was perfect and we've never found that in a restaurant before. The pork Jägerschnitzel was perfect as well. There was a woman playing violin there that was very good and added to the evening. I'll definitely be back there next time I'm in Hot Springs!!

We waited over an hour in and half to get our food. No one checked on us to let us know the food would take a long. We got our waitress’s attention after an hour and fifteen minutes and she let us know it would be another 15 minutes. We had tickets to a show that was starting 30 minutes from the time we asked. After waiting another 15 minutes, my husband went to talk to the hostess who was so rude and told him that it’s normal to wait that long and that this is a European restaurant. My husband’s parents are from Germany and he let her know that was not a good excuse. When he asked for her name she lied and said was Michelle, we found out later it was Amanda. I can’t quite comment on the quality of the food babies as soon as it arrived we had to throw it in to go bags and rush out. The bill was over $100. We will never go back.

Disappointing experience here, which was sad, given we’d heard good things about it. Unfortunately our server was pretty rude, the food was mediocre and overpriced, and we ended up spending $100 on dinner and drinks for two. Wish we would have spent that much somewhere more enjoyable.

Our table was ready early, had drinks, appetizers and dinner within 30 minutes. WOW! Matt, our server, was so pleasant, funny, suggestive of good choices, they even knew it was my birthday because of my Open Door reservation, and I got a piece of German Chocolate cake!!?!?! WOAAAAAAAH! Steinhaus Keller IS THE REASON we come to Hot Springs.

The food at Steinhaus Keller is almost beyond description. Flavors you would never expect weave together into a tapestry that can only be described as transcendent. That may sound like a pretty serious exaggeration, but try the Sauerkraut Cakes (I know, that sounds weird- but trust me) and see if you don't roll your eyes back in ecstasy! The spaetzle is the perfect texture, the cheese sauce tangy and rich. Brussels sprouts not your thing? It may be time to re-assess [plus that might make your Momma happy]! The bread basket is delightful, too- it escaped my earlier mention, but remembering the sauce drizzled on the brussels sprouts- and how we sopped it up with the bread- reminded me. My husband and I struggled to decide which bit of the dinner was our least favorite- we settled on the arugula "garnish" for the Sauerkraut Cakes (though it was fresh and very delicious when dipped in the horseradish sauce)… The German Chocolate Cake was wonderful- but very, very cold and therefore a tiny bit hardened. I would have preferred to skip dessert, maybe, so that the last bite I ate was of one of the rich savories. I just finished my lunch, a feast of leftovers, and I wish I could return to Steinhaus Keller for dinner! The violinist added a subtle touch of romance and sophistication to the evening, as well. I truly cannot say enough good things about this charming restaurant. One hundred stars!

The food was great our server was good. He seemed a bit scattered but he did a good job overall. Our food took a while to come out. So I think any issue was with the kitchen. Others around us seemed to be getting their food in an appropriate amount of time. I have a feeling the issue may have been my Brussel sprouts because mine were not fully cooked. They were still very firm. The food was all very tasty. We enjoyed the ambiance and the staff. Everyone was friendly and seemed happy to be there.

The server was very kind and attentive (she wrote happy birthday on my cake plate and cut my lemonade with water because it was too sweet for me). The atmosphere was quiet and comfortable. The food was delicious. Very enjoyable experience for my birthday dinner.

We enjoyed dining at Steinhaus Keller while visiting in Hot Springs last week. We had eaten there in the past when it was owned by a different restaurant. Our server Justin did a remarkable job and served us well. I had the Holstein Schnitzel and my wife had the wurst. Both of us enjoyed our food very much.

Our visit to Steinhaus Keller was mixed. The highlights were off the charts. It was some of the best German food I have ever had. The Curried Sausage (Currywurst) was amazing. My wife and I were blown away with it. My wife loved her Rahm Schnitze entrée. I loved my German Bone-In Shank. The beer was cold and great. I bought a half litre glass to take home for my collection. The atmosphere was great. The band was fun. Our waitress was very nice. The negatives were pretty glaring. From the time we sat down, it took 45 minutes for our appetizer to arrive. It was another 45 minutes before our entrees showed up. It took too damn long to get food. The waitress was spread across too many tables. We had to wait too long in between drinks. She was apologetic, but it still took too long. There was a family at the table next to us who left after waiting for over an hour for their entrée which never came. I would go back, but I would have to order the next beer as soon as I sat down. We would have to order our entrees as soon as we sat down.

We ordered and waited over and hour and a half for our food and it never came. The man at the table next to us were cussing out someone who I assumed to be the wait staff in front of my young children. The service was terrible and people around us were angry because they had all waited well over an hour for their food and it still hadn’t come. We finally paid for our drinks and left. Terrible, wouldn’t go back.

If you like German food I would recommend this restaurant. Service and atmosphere was great. My only critique is the sausage were a little dry for my taste. However everything tasted great and that is my preference, I’m sure a lot of people would like them cooked that way. Great place to eat!!!
