Our table for four was ready when we arrived about 10 minutes before our 6:30 reservation time on a Saturday night. Drink orders were taken right away. Our questions about the menu were answered knowledgeably. We all ordered different types of schnitzel, and the food was excellent. One person from our party chose to have the chicken schnitzel instead of the pork schnitzel, for a very reasonable additional charge of only $3. Some of us tried the spaetzle instead of the roasted potatoes for only a $1 additional charge. The red cabbage that came with all the meals was outstanding! We were there for nearly 2 hours, enjoying good company and the nice ambiance. Highly recommend this wonderful restaurant!

We were there early and were the only patrons for a while, so it was very pleasant. The schnitzel was fresh and tasty, and we enjoyed it greatly. Lots of free parking on the side street.

Enjoyable evening as always at this restaurant. Food was excellent. Ambience was great. We had a very enjoyable evening. Vodka martinis were exact to my spouse's taste. Service was a little slow but, I put that down to the restaurant filling up quite quickly. On the whole, a great dinner.

Always, there is fairly priced and well prepared food on the menu. The service is prompt and courteous,.....and it is a change to dine in a place which is not overrun by unruly children. I have been a customer of yours for almost 40 years,..and I always chose the OBH for any special occasion which comes my way. Great place....!

Our kids came for their 10th anniversary tonight which we booked for them as a surprise and they loved it! Our son in law had the rack of lamb which he raved about. Absolutely amazing dinner and restaurant. Our daughter had the Cordon blue which she loved. Couldn't thank us enough. Thank-you all for making their 10 th anniversary so special. Ron and Barb.

one of the best restaurants we go to for comfort food, never a bad meal the service is a bit slow to start but gives you time to talk then the service is a 10+, everyone needs to try this gem in New Westminster

2 weeks ago we had a great dinner at the Old Bavaria House , food and service was great so we decided to celebrate my husbands birthday there. What a difference! The service was poor had to pour our own wine and wait for our food even though they weren't busy the food was not hot and the dessert almost uncooked.

Have been going here for 40 or so years. Was surprised that there was an extra charge for extra sauce and for substitute of other vegetables instead of cabbage, but then no extra charge for potatoes (not a vegetable?)
The carrots were under cooked and so hard to cut.
I hope this is a one off as my family comes often for family dinners and functions.

We bring our elderly parents here so they can enjoy speaking German to the lovely waitress or waiter. The food is always very good. Hope this little gem stays around for a long, long time.

The sauce on our shrimp schnitzel was way too thick. Not as good as normal. We were put in a room all to ourselves and ended up with 2 servers. Weird.

Not as good as has been, I hope the place hasn’t gone downhill permanently. Food okay, service very slow (not particularly busy), washroom stinks, not sure if we will return.

So impressed by everything at this restaurant. Couldn’t have picked a better one for an early Mother’s Day treat. If you love schnitzel this is the place to go. There are even vegetarian schnitzel options! Herring salad was delicious. But you are not limited to German dishes; there are chicken, beef, lamb and seafood choices too. Homemade apple strudel is also a winner. And all this in a nice homey, fairly quiet setting with attentive and very personable service.

Loved the ambiance & food but the serving size of the spetzle has decreased & the potatoes were definitely NOT fried! Somewhat disappointing this time. Schnitzel & Roulade were tasty.

Waited 45 minutes to get our dinner. Waitress didn’t update us during our wait until 5 minutes before our food was served why it was taking so long. Even when we seated, we didn’t see our waitress for at least 10 minutes. When we finally got our food, our filet mignon and NY strip loin was raw or more than medium rare. We had to send back the steaks to get it to what we asked for: medium. The food was ok, but disappointed with the service.
