Scholtz Garten has potential but on the expensive side. I ordered the KÖNIGSBERGER KOCHKLOPSE which is veal meatballs over spaten, and my wife ordered Weinersnitzel. We also ordered the Bread time as an appetizer. Both our main dishes tasted good, and seemed to be reasonable...More

Yes, it is the oldest serving bar in Austin. Yes, the beer is gold and there are a lot of domestic and foreign choices. However, the food quality had gown way down since a change in ownership. No more bbq nor bbq plates.

German restaurants in the States aren’t always friendly for vegetarians, but their veggie burger is great! Traditional German noodles were great as well, and the bar has a fine selection of import beers. Service was friendly and the inside atmosphere was fine, though decidedly American...More
