Germany Overseas. This is so far the best German Restaurant I have encountered on the East Coast. Food and service is excellent and prices are in acceptable ranges. (I love the Fleischkaese. It reminds me of home).
Es ist so gut!. Okay, I can't praise this place enough! We went last week for a late Valentines Day luncheon, and we were treated to the BEST German food I've had in a good long while! The German potato salad was YUMMY! The flunder (flounder) was delicious and seasoned PERFECTLY! Very reasonable prices so we were able to sneak in an appetizer AND the yummiest bread pudding I've ever wrapped my lips around! Went back today (a week later, couldn't wait!) but this time we took two of our little ones. The six-year-old gobbled up his Knackwurst. The two-year-old had noodles and cheese and GOOD GRAVY IT'S REAL CHEESE; wasn't expecting that in a kids' meal! I wound up sneaking several bites off her plate! The kids have allergies so they were very careful when they prepared the food. And what dinner would be complete without two Eisclowns! This adorable dessert had them both entranced (plus it gave us another excuse to HAVE to order another bread pudding!) A great restaurant with plenty to eat for everyone! Now, to find another excuse to go back next week!
Schwaebisch Gut. Sunday, noon..The first Hefeweizen is mine.Following a german tradition, it;s just is.Gitta, Tommy and her team preparing and serving the best german( southern german) food around here.Period.I come from the same area like them, and know what i am talking about.The potato salad IS true swabian german, and can compete with my mothers, which is an honor.Don't compare it with the "american" german potato salad, because you just CAN"T compare it!!.Service is awesome, Beer selection great, and if i crave german food, this is the place to go.Sunday Brunch is awesome, and after three plates of food and one desert, i am stuffed until Monday afternoon...))
Too pricey!!. Well, I must say, from the outside I thought this would be a nice, fine dining restaurant. After all, the menu is not on the cheap side, in fact it is very expensive. First of all, if you go eat at a place like this you would expect the service to be good, well at Waldhorn, expect to be served by druggies, and hippies, this doesn't look good at all!! Also, expect to pay $20 for what you think is a veal entree, when in fact it is just bologna, it is gross!! Also, watch for the waiters trying to over sale EVERYTHING, the appetizers, drinks from the bar, etc... and don't order a alcoholic beverage that contains vodka, because you will be paying for "Stoli" vodka, when in fact you are getting brunettes vodka, yup, the crap in the plastic bottle, but they still charge you the price of a Stoli, but when you wake up with a major headache, you will know the difference. This place is not what all the hype is, the food is very low cost, with very expensive prices, and everyone there is on drugs! I don't know about you, but if I am paying those type prices, I don't want someone who smells of marijuana and cigs. waiting on me!
It's like Germany is right around the corner....
I always enjoy going to Waldhorn, especially for a drink (or several) to unwind after work!
The food is very good. The employees are nice and the place has a great atmosphere.
FINALLY! A little bit of Deutschland in Charlotte!.
I recently moved to the Charlotte area and I have been looking for authentic German Fare since arriving. Finally, I found this little gem here on city search and I could not be more pleased. The food was delicious. Honestly, I have not found a single dish yet i have not thoroughly enjoyed. The comments about the wurst platters are absolutly spot on. The knockwurst, in particular, is to die for. Its so buttery that I am getting a bit hungry talking about it now.
A couple of suggestions to those who eat there:
1. Try the jagerschnitzel both as it is listed on the menu (with pork cutlets) and try it with the breaded veal cutlets. The Hunter Sauce accents both extremely well.
2. Join The Beer Club! It truly is worth it!!!
3. Try the Black Forrest Cake. It truly is chocolate cake and cherry heaven.
Anyhow, swing by sometime and enjoy. Incidentally, to the reviewer from Louisiana... I am from New Orleans myself. While I love my spicy food, this style of cooking is still well spiced. It simply is not designed to attach to your palate the way creole/cajun cooking is. This is meant to touch your palate, enchant it, then leave you having to remember it. In a way, its a bit devious.
Good luck all!!
das is goot!.
OK...so I'm a softy for German food and this is the only place in Charlotte to get it.
We've been 3 times now and plan to go back. GREAT beer selection.
The first time the food was great. The last time I ordered the exact same entree, the beef rouladen, it was dry and well....DRY! The wurstplatter (sausage platter) is always a safe bet.
The potato pancakes for an appetizer are delish as are the pretzels they serve. Ask for a creamy horseradish sauce for dipping to make them even tastier.
This is our favorite place for any night.. Brandon is our waiter of preference, he knows what we like and is always ready for a refill. All of the appetizers are great our favorite is the goat chees in phyllo. We have tried many of the dishes and all of them are great. Octoberfest is busy but a lot of fun. Their beer selection is great. Sunday brunch is a great way to try alot of their menu items.
Great German Experience. We took our family (2 adults and 3 children) on a busy Saturday night. We were able to get seated within 10 minutes. It quite noisy, but the food was great! My husband especially liked the bread. The kids all ordered Chicken Fingers, which were served with fries and the veggie of the day. They had plenty food. We also had plenty of yummy food on our plates as well. The food was cooked to perfection and I can't wait to go back and try some more off their extensive menu.
Schnitzel, strudel and spaetzle served in a Swiss-style chalet..
Run by a husband and wife team, both professionally trained chefs, Waldhorn serves hearty German fare in one of Charlotte's most unique dining environments. The huge, Swiss-style chalet that houses the restaurant is casual, friendly and brimming with old-world charm. On weekends wandering accordion minstrels keep the scene lively. Diners settle in with a stein of beer and one of the house specialties, which include wiener schnitzel, bratwurst, and sauerbraten.
