You can easily walk by this gem in Oxford, but once you go there, you will want to go back. If you love German food, you must give Steinkeller a try. I love the ambiance of this place. I feels German (I have been to Germany) and there's a Berlin metro map outside, too!

The pretzels, the bratwursts, the potato pancakes, and the Reuben are all delicious!

I had dinner and breakfast here last week and I can't say enough about this wonderful place. For dinner we walked in with a party of 9, 15 minutes before the kitchen closed. We were welcomed, given a private room(the place was packed!), and served a delicious dinner. Steinkeller has a very nice menu with lot's of German classics. We had schnitzels and wursts, potato pancakes and spaetzle, all were fantastic. They have a lot of non German food and several of us had burgers and other sandwiches and all were devoured. Their beer & wine selection are outstanding. The variety of German & European beers are as good as it gets and offered in 1/2 and full liter mugs.
Breakfast the next day(offered Thursday -Sunday) was outstanding. My son had fried chicken and waffles. The waffles were made with bourbon and bacon and were delicious plain. Put a big fried chicken breast and some maple syrup on it and you have an amazing meal. My wife & I enjoyed the Brunch King Ludwig, a breakfast version of their Mad King Ludwig sandwich. The brunch version consists of brat sausage, bacon and a poached egg, nestled between 2 thick potato pancakes and covered in Hollandaise sauce. I am still dreaming of this plate! A great tip: this place is not as crowded as the few other breakfast places in town(for now)!

This place always has great tasting food well prepared. They have a very nice selection of German beers plus others they also have specialty mixed drinks. Schnitzel and potato pancakes are a must appetizers.

We enjoyed the atmosphere. Beer and wine selections were broad. Food was ok. We were expecting a full blown German menu. We went during Sunday brunch and the only menu available was the brunch menu. Service was good, although we arrived around the time a party of 40 placed their order, so our food took a LONG time to come out of the kitchen. The brunch menu had a lot of fried food with the exception of some of the salads and sandwiches. Unless we get there for the dinner menu beginning at 3 p.m. weekends, we probably won't go again. It's located in a very quaint college town which was quite enjoyable on a beautiful Fall day.
