Dining al fresco

Sunday’s storm, which brought remnants of Hurricane Ike to the Kentuckiana area, knocked out power to 270,000 households. Five days later as I am writing this more than 100,000 are still without power.
But we are going strong here at the Gasthaus, the only problem we’ve had is we are without air conditioning. But per request by some of our guests we placed tables outside and were able to serve them our yummy food right outside our doors. See pictures:

No oompah music here, but a full moon provided a nice atmosphere.

On Saturday we still had no AC and decided to place more tables outside.

Best German Restaurant in Louisville

It’s official!! We’ve been selected the Best German Restaurant in Louisville. As a result of surveys taken by more than 50,000 diners across the country the website WHERE THE LOCALS EAT have selected the top 100 very best restaurants in each of the top 50 cities in the United States and we’re one of them.

Category German Restaurant Winner

Even if you can’t pronounce gemutlichkeit (German for comfortable friendliness), you can most likely say “Gasthaus,” which is essentially the same thing. This authentic eatery proves the saving grace of a surprisingly barren German restaurant scene in Louisville, considering the Bluegrass State’s relatively large German-American population. Decorated haphazardly with knickknacks from the owners’ home in Bochum, Gasthaus radiates with a charm distinctive to family-run operations. A friendly waitstaff dressed in traditional folk costumes adds to the atmosphere as customers are guided through the menu of traditional German cuisine. Chicken, veal, beef and pork dominate the menu in the expected schnitzels, spatzles and stroganoffs, and there are a few vegetarian entrées, as well. Meatless or no, main courses disprove the bland-and-heavy stereotype often attributed to German fare, owing in part to a hint of French influence. Recommended dishes include chicken ragout, beef rouladen and goulash as well as excellent sides such as sauerkraut and pan-fried potatoes. The house-made desserts alone could keep Gasthaus in business, as locals often stop in for a cup of coffee and a slice of apple strudel, fallen chocolate soufflé or one of the ever-changing (and ever-delicious) assortment of rich cake rolls and tortes. Reservations suggested. Beer and German wine available. Serving dinner Tue–Sat. Closed Sun–Mon.
