We never have any issues when we visit Steinhaus. It’s always a wonderful experience, amazing food, and just an overall wonderful atmosphere. My husband and I gladly travel over an hour and a half just to enjoy a peaceful wonderfully made meal. It’s become a nice date night for us and it’s definitely one of our top spots to go. We recommend it to anyone and everyone wanting to know a good food spot..

Great German restaurant in the heart of Hot Springs. We eat here every time we are in town. The only issue we have ever had is the lighting can be a bit dim for us older folk!

Oh man. This experience was everything I was hoping for! We love our doggos so much and wanted to spend NYE with them, so Steinhaus Keller was the best option for us on vacation! They have an ENTIRE dog menu, as well as so many options for us humans. The food was spectacular! My husband and I are German and we're always looking for some good authentic German food, and this place did not disappoint. My husband was very pleased with the German potato salad and we were both impressed with the German bier list. If we didn't live all the way in central Texas, we'd certainly be regulars here! Happy New Year!

Busy night with a live show at the convention center and holidays crowd so had several large groups ordering before us. Food was slow coming out of kitchen for that reason, service was excellent and food was great.

We went with our extended family for our Christmas weekend! Everything was amazing. The orange duck was succulent and the stuffed mushrooms were amazing!! Chicken Cordon Blu was just as great. The service was impeccable and the freshness of the food was exactly what we all wanted.

First, let me say we loved this place. This night, both plates were so salty they were inedible. The waiter delayed returning to ask about our meals. The veal was such a poor cut it was hard to cut with a knife. My husband hates to complain, so he didn’t say his meal was bad. The elk was over cooked and all I could taste on everything was salt. Even the potatoes were awful. When waiter asked if it was the entire plate or just the elk, I said everything. The new plate had only elk on it-which was also overcooked, but less salty. My fried potatoes front the fist plate were cold. The slaw was a few strands of cabbage in a 50/50 mayonnaise and water bowl.

We will probably go back, but we won’t feel the same until we get a decent meal. Honestly, I’ve never asked for food to be redone without a manager coming to my table.

This entire experience was bizarre. Who doesn’t give you a fresh meal instead of part of it? What kind of management doesn’t inquire as to the resolution of a complaint? We heard our waiter apologizing to every table under his care.

Not a stellar keller German restaurant. Located in a cellar setting it was difficult to find at night for out of town guests, we drove by it three times before seeing a small sign located on the second story of the building.

Food was okay, not exceptional . . . curry wurst was wurst swimming in a curry sauce, Chicken Paprikash was good and nice serving, pork Wiener Schnitzel quite large but then the spaetzle with cheese (extra $2.50) was a surprisingly small serving. The German Chocolate Cake was comped for my wife's birthday and came with a sparkler like candle . . . much appreciated! Sorry to say, but I prefer my wife's schnitzel and cheese spaetzle.

Service was a little on the slow side given that the restaurant was not full on our Friday night visit. Our server took our drink order but we had to call him back as he walked away to give him our appetizer order. Dinner was a while in coming.

Overall, the live music (a violinist accompanied by music tracks), cellar ambience, and birthday recognition overcame the average food and service to make for a nice evening out with friends.
