    My girlfriend and I ate here on the Saturday night of Easter Weekend. We made a reservation for 7:30pm and good thing as the place was packed (that’s a good thing in my eyes). We were seated right away. We were next greeted right away and brought water and drink orders taken. Our drinks came right away I was almost surprised as to how busy the restaurant was. We split a combination dish and it was delicious. It had the schnitzel, bratwurst, rouladin and spaetzle. Again, our server was so friendly and polite. All the servers are wearing black and white and the atmosphere was great. I would go back.

    Dry cold meatloaf with a nice sauce over it. Small servings of nice tasting cabbage and spatzel. Fried snitzel was ok. It was a C+ at best

    Food was outdated. Reminds me of the kind of food we would go out for a semi-nice dinner with my parents in the 70’s. Today it just isn’t that good. Dry. Bland. Not very creative. One step up from cafeteria food.

    My wife and I enjoy our annual trek to Harrison and always eat at the Black Forest. We are never disappointed. Reserved on OpenTable, then went earlier and were accommodated with a smile and great service. Their schnitzel reminds me of what I had years ago in Vienna, Austria at at outdoor cafe everytime.

    We love this place and we are locals from Chilliwack, great food, always tasty and fresh. We sat on the covered patio for the first time in several times we have been there, I would sit there again for sure. They only downfall and totally not the resturants fault, but there was a very noisy group of older ladies there, omg you think they were in a bar the way they were carrying on, at least their food arrived quickly and their mouths became quiet lol....but overall great experience we will be back for sure, we try to go every other month or so for a nice adult meal without kids.

    At the time of our visit there were kids at almost every table, and kids will be kids, how-ever, parents and restaraunt owners seem to forget that some places are adult zones and not kids play grounds ... the place very noisy, loud ... not a nice evening dinner atmosphere at all.

    We had a very enjoyable dinner in the heated patio, overlooking the lake. My sister and I had the Schnitzel Madagascar and my brother had the combination dinner. My brother is a foodie and was very impressed with the schnitzel-crispy on the outside, tender inside and flavourful, and we all loved the red cabbage and spaetzle. All agreed that the food was excellent (the vegetables could have been cooked a little longer) an worth the price. We will definitely be back again to try some of the other dishes!

    Yes, it was the perfect spot to have a lovely dinner when we stayed close by in the HHS resort. The food was really good. We came just in time to have the Early Bird Special and our waitress was very gracious about getting our food order in at the last moment. We had the Leberkase- German meatloaf which we have not tasted since leaving the Midwest over ten years ago, it was excellent and the side vegetables were great. Gravy was delicious too!

    maybe I did not try the right dishes (had vegetarian schnitzel) which was fair but Caesar salad lacked any flavor. Beer was good. My partner had potato cakes which she found bland. My father had cordon blue schnitzel which he found a bit watery. not willing to recommend to anyone but given we had read such good reviews, we are willing to try again. It was an extraordinary busy evening there so maybe just an off night.
