Excellent German food, beer, and service. We will be back.
Food and ambience is terrific. The GM - Dave - runs a great business and takes care of guests with professionalism and patience.
As always the food was fantastic. Our server was attentive and did a wonderful job. We've never had a bad meal here, and are already looking forward to going back!
We enjoyed our visit and will return, even though it is more than an hour away.
The Fort never disappoints the food and the great German beers are awesome. The staff there is always friendly. Would love to see everything get back to normal.
Very good food . Waiter did a great job. Seating was comfortable and socially distant.
The Fort is a gift to our community. Food was fantastic, service fabulous and the outdoor setting felt safe and festival. Always a favorite!
We enjoyed eating outside with plenty of social distancing; our server wore and mask and gloves and was extremely good at her job. Food was delicious--I love the spaetzle and chicken schnitzel, my husband had a lovely pork shank. Many varieties of European beer on tap, and good value wines.
We wanted a special lunch and found student prince on open table. We got German food and seafood and had amazing dark draft beers.
The other fun thing was photographing the antique buses parked nearby that we got to look at and walk into.
The staff was helpful and attentive during the meal. Would recommend.
Great food, drinks and atmosphere. Everything was clean and top notch!
Best outdoor dining experience in Western Mass!
Food was good as always. Outdoor seatingvwas comfortable, and the service was friendly!!
Our waitress was no attentive and seemed bothered by our requests. My entree (salmon) was undercooked and had to be sent back. When it came back, it still was not cooked well. The table next to the sewer grater made for an constant unpleasant smell.
Outdoor dining has been mastered by creating a festive atmosphere under a tent. Live music was nice and not overpowering. The food was A1 as usual. Always a great place to dine... inside or out.
Needed to get out during Covid and the Student Prince was perfect. They had covered outdoor dining, live entertainment and good food.
Amazing flavors! Great staff! Loved the fact that they kept the ambience of the past owners.
music was too loud for people sitting under the tent
Good food, good portions.
We appreciate german specialities (roasted shank pork, schnitzels)
This was a return visit to The Student Prince Café. The brussels sprouts with honey a paprika were divine. My husband's fish and my garlic shrimp were superb. We opted for outdoor dining since the night was comfortable. They had live entertainment, which we could have done without, but it was nice to get out and enjoy great food and excellent service.
My husband and I traveled an hour to get to Student Prince and it was worth every mile and then some. The food was fantastic. Other than my grandmother's sauerkraut,there was the best I've ever had. I should mention that my grandmother made amazing German food. The service was wonderful. Our waitress,Jordan,was extremely patient and helpful as I couldn't decide on a drink and my husband just recently was diagnosed with gluten sensitivity. She was amazingly helpful and reassuring. By the way, he had the Wirst plate with French fries and applesauce and was fine. The prices were fantastic given the quality and food and service. The environment was also wonderful. The decor definitely had a Germanic influence which I love. We will definitely be back soon!
Great outdoor dining
Had a wonderful night. Went for my birthday. Everything was wonderful. I was surprised that there was a spot on the reservation that asked if it was a special occasion and we put birthday but no one acknowledged it. Wondered why they bothered to ask.
The ambience was great. I enjoyed the list of beers. My wife had the Jaeger schnitzel. I had the Hungarian goulash. We enjoyed them both. I would eagerly recommend this place and cant wait to revisit.
The Student Prince has the BEST menu! We love the giant pretzel and the Camembert cheese bites to start! They are doing an outstanding job with both their menu and their outdoor dining!! An enjoyable evening!
Food and service were excellent. Loved dining outside under the tent with live music in the back-round. I will be going back soon.
My husband and I shared the Tomahawk steak for 2 and it was worth every penny. Done to perfection! Our waiter was very friendly and professional and enjoyed the outdoor music as well. Will definitely go back.
Great food. The waiter just wouldn’t leave us alone. Would come to the table every 5 min to check on us. Would also try and be funny but wasn’t. Will go back but will make sure to have a different waiter.
We ate outdoors (indoor seating was available) under a tent. Our party of 7 was divided into a group of 4 and 3, which was fine. Tables were well spaced. The food was very good. If you like German food, this is a geat spot.
The staff went above and beyond to clean all tables the were bussed the food was great we ate outside my wife has breathing issues the one thing that needs work is big control as will happen with outside eating fans in the right spots might blow them away
The on-street, outdoor dining was fantastic. The ambiance, the music and the service were all excellent. I would love to see the outdoor space continue seasonally.
Since COVID hit and the restaurant opened an outdoor tent area both my wife and I really like the atmosphere. I hope this will stay permanent for the summer months in years to come. I hate sitting in dark A/C dinning during in the summer when you can enjoy outdoors. A+
Dining "al aire fresco" brings back memories of Europe, although I wish the price of wine were as "user friendly." We ate early and loved the solitude offered by the hour. Food and service were beyond our expectations.
Great food, great beer, and the live singer was awesome! Will definitely be back.
Great food. The specials were great and the sampler appetizer was the best way to get a little of all the good stuff. The beers were on point and the staff was really great and helpful.
Jeffery was our waiter, he is wonderful. He makes you feel welcome. Food was great as always!
Dined outside with live music! Food was absolutely terrific, don’t forget to order a pretzel and a beer!!!Highly suggest stopping by for a bite to eat.
Our waitress has worked there 28 years, so she filled us in on the restaurant's history - which was good to hear. The spaetzle and geschnetzeltes are cream-intensive, and the geschnetzeltes could have used more seasoning, but overall everyone in our party enjoyed their food. We all ordered from "German specialties" section of menu. The sampler could be enough for 2! Side dishes were especially delicious! Take time to look out decor throughout bar and dining rooms.
Overpriced, small portions, and very noisy. Impractical for a dinner
This is the best German food you will find in all of lower New England unless you have a German grandmother! The service is top notch. It is a little more expensive but it is worth it for both the food quality and the size of the portions.
