  1. This year it was Sauerbraten and Bratkartoffeln. The beef was so tender I only needed a fork. And how can you go wrong with potatoes, bacon, and onion!

  3. Do you have sauerkraut balls ?

    Comment by Jerry Silliman | August 2, 2014 | Reply

    • Mmmh, delicious, but we don’t have those. They are not authentic German food and are more a recipe that originates from the Midwest.

      • Thanks, sorry you don’t have them.

  4. My mother used to make Rouladen with pickles, but my wife made them with asparagus wrapped with a thin slice of ham and Swiss cheese within the beef wrap. Try it.

  9. Spatzle is not German at all. It’s totally Swiss. No authentic German restaurant would never serve Spatzle!

    • Dear Cathy
      In case you’re not sure whether we are an authentic restaurant, we’d like to invite you to try out our establishment and see for yourself. Spätzle have several origins within Central Europe, they’re neither only German nor only Swiss. But most would argue they are Swabian.ätzle

    • You are very misinformed, Spätzle is actually Schwaben like the owner said. Her restaurant is Authentic and she comes from Saarland(a state in Germany.) I have personally eaten there before and it is good even though I come from Bavaria our styles are different.

    • Totally German. Especially southwestern.

  12. Need to consider having an option to place order online – I’ve been calling all day to put in an order but can’t get through – at this point, it’s just easier to go somewhere else.

  19. We very much loved the stroganoff and Wienerschnitzel. The accompanied sauces with each dish were great.
    The German chocolate cherry cake was likewise delicious.
    This was all done in takeaway. Served on our dishes and on a set table. Well done Gasthaus, you made my lovely wives birthday during this epidemic memorable.

  24. Was this restaurant on Dixie Highway in Louisville? Then moved south down dixie highway to a different community, like Brandenburg? We had a fierce discussion about the history of this restaurant, and can say if this is that restaurant, you will get a reservation of 4. All agreed the food was crazy good.

    Comment by Peggy Leahy | June 9, 2021 | Reply

    • Hi Peggy,
      No, we have no association with any other German restaurants. Our family came to Louisville, Ky in the mid 90s and opened up The Gasthaus at its current location on 4812 Brownsboro Center.
      We’d love to see you, please call us for your reservation at 502-899-7177.
      Thanks and see you soon!

  29. I was wondering if you would be interested in making a donation for our upcoming auction for the Leukemia Lymphoma Society Visionaries of the Year? We are in a 10 week campaign to raise money for the LLS mission. I am committed to this organization because my husband was diagnosed wIth Acute Myeloid Leukemia in 2017, and has been fighting ever since. Our auction is May 14, 2022. I would love to talk with you about our event, thank you Donna Reed
