Recommend the Smorgasbord. Perfect for sharing with 2 people and everything on it was delicious! We had tickets to the Ellie Caulkins Opera House and they serve $2.00 1/2 litre of lager or house red/white, an awesome deal! The atmosphere is fun and energetic with a bocce ball court in the middle of the dining room. Would definitely go again!

While the sausages were excellent, the jaeger wiener schnitzel was tough and was not pounded thin. The sides were nice. We were quickly seated and received good service.

Very energetic establishment with an interesting set-up featuring lawn chairs and turf in the middle of the establishment. A good variety of drink and food options with a Bavarian/German theme that all looked tasty. If you are looking for a fun casual outing and want to catch a big game this is a place to check out.

Food was okay but I've had better German food. Extremely noisy but energetic atmosphere. Good beer selection. Not a place to go if interested in being able to have a conversation with others in your party unless you want to shout. Try the giant pretzel...very good!

Food was a little expensive but it was delicious and worth it. The service was EXCELLENT. We had a reservation but had to call to let them know we would be a few minutes late due to traffic. They were super nice about it and told us it was no problem at all and our table would be waiting for us.

The food was good, especially the pretzel with cheese fondue and chocolate ganache. The spinach/pretzel dumplings were a miss - more of a meatball and a bit of an odd texture. Very loud, fun for people watching.

The goulash soup and soft pretzels were awesome and service was great. The only thing that would make this a better experience would be padding on the seating (chairs & benches) which are soooooo uncomfortable.

We met friends there for a before the theater dinner. Was a little loud on the main level and made it difficult to talk so we asked if we could move upstairs where it was a little quieter. The staff was very accommodating and they moved us without fuss. Food and beer is always good although they were out of a couple of the beers we wanted. We always enjoy the Rhein Haus.

This is my second visit to Rein Haus and it didn’t disappoint. I had the pork schnitzel and giant pretzel with four dipping sauces. The schnitzel was cook perfectly. And I couldn’t get enough of the pretzels. They’re so good. Best German food in Denver!

James Weimann has developed another gem of a restaurant. As usual he replicated cultural ambiance and cuisine specific to the region but with interesting twists and fresh ingredients. Loved the pork schnitzel and Vienna Summer cocktail. Others enjoyed the sausages and sauerkraut while watching the bocce games. Started at Wally’s for appetizers and loved the pretzels and cheese curds while admiring the elder Weimann’s wedding photos and sports memorabilia. The staff all spoke glowingly of the owner James. Highly recommended!

We went on a Sunday after going to the museum and forgot about the Rockies game. We had made reservations so there was a table for us but we had to sit in the bar so people were drunk from being in the bar and at the Rockies game. They were loud as hell. There was also an auction going on. So it was an EXTREMELY loud dining experience. This was the first time it's been this loud, ever. So my two cents, this place rocks. The beer list has hard to find German beer that you can't get easily in the states (Stiegl Radler, ie) ON TAP. The food is a mix between German and American so you can kindof get your German food craving met. Just make sure you look at the Rockies schedule before you go if you want to be able to hear the others at the table.

The kasespaetzel was delicious! Our service was very prompt and the selection of beers was outstanding. You can get a one liter sized beer - very authentic! I enjoyed the veggiewurst, so even if you're a vegetarian, this place has options. It was not a vegan veggiewurst, though. We didn't try the desserts, but these also looked good. We will definitely be back!

We were really looking forward to tasking some authentic German food in Denver. Ambiance was okay. The food was so-so. My husband ordered the Jagerschnitzel and I ordered the Schnitzel and we were both disappointed in our food choices. We enjoyed the pretzels, but everything else was just mediocre and definitely not worth the price we paid. I know I'm not in Germany, but I've been to other German restaurants in Colorado Springs and the food tasted like German food.

I would not recommend anyone who has ever been to Germany to eat at the Rhein Haus. You will definitely be disappointed.

The beer and sauerkraut were good but the pork shank (Schweinschaxe) was just ok and the Jagerschnitzel sucked. We thought since the Jagerschnitzel is made with beef instead of pork or veal it might be interesting but it turned out to be shoe leather with maybe 3 mushrooms total in the sauce. But Rhein Haus is not just a supposed German joint that doesn't know what a hunter's sauce is. The Schweinschaxe is described on line and in the hardcopy menu as served with Spatzle, but it came with fingerling potatoes and carrots. These veggies were actually tasty but come on, no Spatzle and no warning of "oh, we're not serving that dish with Spatzle any more"? Only redeeming feature was the side of sauerkraut - nice when a place isn't afraid of juniper berries. Overall Rhein Haus is an overpriced dump. We will never return.

Great service, especially by the hostess. She looked like she was working harder than the bus boys. Our server was also fantastic and checked on us whenever we needed something. It was super busy, so I’m glad we made reservations, cause we sat right down when we got there. We will definitely be back.

Every month my family gets together for a dinner out, June 2018 I selected Rhein House, we sat upstairs and I appreciated the 10 of us not be crammed into a small table. We sat at a high top with some elbow room. My only complaint would be that the service is a bit slow (not painfully), but if you have a good conversation, that shouldn't be a problem.
We had a variety of dishes from the burger, brat & Schnitzel. I recommend the pork schnitzel over the beef it was more tender and flavorful. The spätzle is excellent and should be ordered as a side no matter what you are getting to eat.
Previously I had the goulash and pretzel and they were both delicious. The highlight on that visit as well as this one was the apple strudel, so don’t skip dessert!
If you have never ventured into German food this place is a great place to get started, so give it a try!
