GASTHAUS: got 'kraut?

Louisville's ONLY German Restaurant

Happy Birthday, Gasthaus!!!

It’s hard to believe that it’s already been 19 years since we first opened!!

We had our “Grand Opening” on December 18, 1993.  I’m putting “Grand Opening” in quotes, because in the days before social media we really didn’t make a big deal about it. It was a real quiet affair. No announcement, no big flashy banner.

At one point during that day, our first customer came strolling in. It was Ingeborg Chandler, a German living in the US.  She bought some deli meats from us, because back then we still had a deli counter. Imagine us at the front of the restaurant making deli sandwiches! We even had the menu written on a chalk board hanging on the wall above. Boy, things sure have changed!

None of us really knew what we’d become in the years ahead, and no one knew how much work and commitment to the business was required. But somehow we’ve made it this far and we hope to stick around for a little while longer.

We love our customers, we really do.  That’s why we already have a cool idea for our 20th anniversary, so please stay tuned.

But we also love our staff and would like to take this opportunity to say “Thank You staff for your loyalty and hard work”!!

Happy Birthday Gasthaus!!
