Have enjoyed many dinners here. Unfortunately it's last day of business is Saturday 6/25/16. Not for lack of business.....it is a family and estate thing. So sad to see a strip mall and panda express going in where this stately lovely German influenced restaurant is located. Made that part of the neighborhood unique.....now the intersection will be blah! :( Really REALLY sad to see. Another gem gone.

Avoid the Haxen, no flavor and not crispy. The server described it as "authentic", I suggest a trip to the Haxenbauer in Munich to see how the dish should be prepared.

Gasthaus is a great German go to staple. Food is always consistent but for Mother's day the brunch was not the greatest. I strongly recommend the restaurant normal menu or great bar menu

We hadn't been to the Gasthaus in many years. What a treat it was! The bartender was welcoming and cheerful, the host, delightful as we requested a later seating to be able to watch the Kentucky Derby. Food was delicious, the flatbread a most delicious surprise. Good German food is sadly hard to find in the Milwaukee area these days, and Gasthaus did not disappoint. We'll be back to enjoy outdoor seating when the weather cooperates.

Glad we were able to make a late-notice reservation here. The place was quite busy, but the family-style brunch was brought out in a very timely manner, and all of the food was fresh and very good. The Weissgerbers consistently do things well.

The food was decent, but I remembered it being better when I ate here a year ago. My wife's steak wasn't cooked how she asked. A little over half of my sampler platter was sauerkraut, they skimped on the meat. Our waitress was OK, but brought me the wrong drink. The host didn't seat us until half an hour after our reservation time. He did not apologize for the wait or offer drinks, and had an attitude like he didn't want to be there. The bartender ignored one couple until they got up and left the restaurant, then he actually complained about them being impatient to the other patrons. He didn't even realize they were there until they left. This place is being run by people who hate their customers.

I have visited Weissgerber's several times in the past and was very satisfied. It had been approximately two years since my last visit. Having lived in Germany for over a decade, I appreciate a good German meal every year or so and treat my family to a unique dining experience.

We dined as a group of four. Our server was prompt and friendly, however the food and the value of the mediocre food we were served was absolutely disappointing. We ordered two appetizers, 5 beer, 2 drinks, a coffee and 4 German combination specials and our bill totaled a $230. If the food had been outstanding, or even good we would have left the establishment with a better feeling. I was completely underwhelmed and will not return.

Service was exceptionally slow and waiter was not at all friendly or personable. Flatbread appetizer was so cold the cheese was hard. Steaks were so over seasoned and salty. Mashed potatoes were hard and cold. The salad medley and bread basket were the only good part of the meal. Very disappointed.

What a beautiful place! Like many fine old homes in Germany. Service was quite good. Sadly, a dried out duck leg was put before us. They should have brought a moist one or just told us they were out of duck leg. Sauerbraten and sauerkraut were not to our taste. Maybe it tastes like some region in Germany that we were not familiar with. Red cabbage was good, as was the wine, a Riesling. Prices are a bit high, but not too high if the quality is there.

We had a spot by the fireplace on a Tuesday night - quiet and romantic. Potato soup was excellent and hot. I had the Pork Chop Special and my wife had Salmon - both were very good.
Hot bread and pretzels was a nice surprise! Beer was cold and fresh

Not inexpensive so make a visit for a special occasion

My husband and I grew up in Milwaukee. Most of our lives, we ate at well known German restaurants in downtown, Milwaukee. Now that we live in Waukesha, we looked for German food closer and began to come here for dinner. In recent years, we still would go to the 2 German restaurants in Milwaukee. It didn't take long that we realized that the 2 Milwaukee German restaurants had severley diminished in quality of food, service and everything else while Gasthaus is always consistently excellent.

We felt neglected that evening. It took a while to order our food...waiter didn't come around after he got our drinks. The tables around us got their meals before us...and they were seated after us. It was one hour after we arrived that we got our meal. The waiter did not check on us either. And we had to try to get our waiter's attention to get out check. Will not return.

There were seven of us, we all had worked together and now all but one is retired. We get together for a light meal once a month but at Christmas we treat ourselves and go to a more upscale restaurant, which the Gasthaus is. The prices are good. The food delicious and the atmosphere is so comfortable and decorated beautiful. The coziness of the fireplace and the German decor was delightful. We definitely will return.

The food was also outstanding. Great old German atmosphere makes you feel like you just took a short trip to Germany. We will definitely return.

The Gasthaus is a nice German restaurant from the Weissgerber family. The food is very good. the bar area is nice for meeting friends. They have a nice meeting room upstairs for special events. Try the Reuben rolls or the Flammkuchen for an appetizer.

We Took our family from Europe to the Gasthaus because we knew they cooked an amazing pork shank. Last night's dinner was outstanding. We have never had such fabulous pork shanks. In addition, we had scrumptious appetizers and the Bavarian dessert platter was delicious. I cannot recommend this restaurant to enough people.

Visited the last time during the holidays and gave myself that excuse that I wasn't as pleased with the food or service as I should have been. This time was worse. The service was slow because waitress had to many tables to handle. Food was cold from soup to main dish which tasted like it had been sitting for a while. Will not be going again real soon.

GASTHOUS is OUTSTANDING for entertaining out-of- state guests. Its has a 'Wisconsin Supper Club' feel but with traditional, local German dressing. Ambiance was "10 of 10" OUTSTANDING. Food and service was good to very good. Value was very good. The $8 German Sampler desert option is a steal. I don't know how they do that for eight bucks.
