Next time I'll order a side of potato pancakes just for you.
 
Yes, Mad Anthony's was supposed to be haunted by the ghosts of a Harmonite brother and sister.  There were reports of footsteps on the cellar stairs, doors opening and closing, chandeliers swinging and a cold chill experienced by workers and patrons.  I pretty much chalked it up to too much bier.

Not a restaurant but if you are going to be in Milwaukee during late August, you should check out GermanFest.



It is one in our summer-long series of music and ethnic festivals.

Gemütlichkeit!

Gersthaus und Wiener Fest are both great places in the Nashville, TN area.

20+ years ago I used to frequently travel 145 miles to Nashville just to eat at the Gersthaus.  Then about 10 years ago or so, the Gersthaus acquired a sister restaurant right across the river from me in Evansville, Indiana.  Those 145 mile trips were instantly reduced to 10.

Add another lost German restaurant in Queens New York City.  Chalet Alpina on Metropolitan in Forest Hills is closed. Auf Wiedersehen!

The Bavaria Restaurant in Kirby,east of San Antonio gets very good reviews. There are three in New Braunfels:
Oma's Haus,,,Friesenhaus,,,and don't recall the name of the third one. All have gotten mixed reviews. Like to try the Bavaria in Kirby as it always seems to get praise for the food.

Well, New Braunfels has the Wurstfest in November.  Maybe not a full German menu but a good time indeed.  I did that maybe 15 years ago.

Not speaking from experience but if I was looking for German food in south central Texas, I'd go looking in Fredericksburg TX, just sayin....

Amazing!.this thread goes back to 2003 and still gets a few comments. (alas, almost no good German Restaurants about me, but PA Dutch and Amish places abound - not the same).
 
This has to be one of the longest running threads on RF if not THE oldest!

Karl Ratzsch's sold. New owner wants to restore the menu to more like the menu of 1904 when it first opened. I recently dined here and the food remained amazing. I wondered about the grandfather clause we have locally that means established restaurants don't have to be up to current code. I wondered about that when I had to walk to the 2nd floor to use the bathroom. The place has lots of charm but it needs some updating and this Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel article says it will get just that. http://www.jsonline.com/blogs/entertainment/365949141.html

Funny you mention german food.My hungarian mother tried to get her german mother-in-law to tech her some german dishes so she could make them for daddy,but grandma never really did. My dad served from 1942 to 1975 in the US Airforce. However  we ate japanese,italian ,mexican and chinese food. Didn't really eat much german growing up mainly because I guess there weren't that many restaurants around here that served it and  my dad was rather particular  how it was made.

There's an "Old School" German restaurant in Mesa, AZ that's very goot.
The Bavarian Point - The menu selection is very extensive, ranging from seafood, to veal, to pork, or beef
http://www.bavarianpoint.net/ 
The decor is old as seen in the Gallery on their website but the food is outstanding. The chef/owner is from Germany and cooks authentic dishes.

It turns out that Huntsville AL has at least four German restaurants.  Ol' Heidelburg is the oldest of them, but our friend in town doesn't rate them, saying they've gone downhill.  We went to Hildegard's German Cuisine with her instead and my wife had a very nice meal of currywurst and knockwurst with mashed potatoes and the best red cabbage that she's had in many, many years.
