About Old Stein Inn
IN 1983, Karl & Ursula Selinger of Neustadt an der Weinstrasse, Germany in the Rhineland Pfalz opened The Old Stein Inn to serve the finest German cuisine. They decided to locate in Anne Arundel County just 8 miles south of Annapolis in Edgewater Maryland. The Old Stein has a traditional Biergarten to give neighbors a place to enjoy al fresco dining with friends and family. The ten German taps pour an unparalleled selection of beer. The Old Stein has been featured on "The Best Of Show" on the Food Network and has won multiple awards for the Munster Cheese & Crab Soup and the Apple Cheesecake.
The Old Stein is no run-of-the-mill chain restaurant. Diners come from all over the Mid-Atlantic (or right around the corner) to this family-owned, Maryland gem to enjoy fun, food, friends—and, or course, a cold brew in a gemütlichkeit atmosphere. Eins, Zwei, Drei, G"suffa!

Old Stein Inn Ratings and Reviews

The Old Stein Inn is a terrific traditional German restaurant. I've eaten there twice. The sauerbraten was delicious and very tender. The pork schnitzel was great too. The ambience evokes many of the Biergartens I've visited in Germany.
All in all a great experience.

Service was very good. A bit disappointed that at 6:30, when 4 of the 6 of us ordered one of the specials, rouladin, they were OUt???? .. alternative options were delicious.. but.. disappointing that the specials were out so early. Very warm to the point of uncomfortable.. inside???

By far my husband's favorite restaurant. We eat here as often as possible. Love the outdoor patio. Several hand crafted cocktails for the non-beer lovers in the group. You must try the fried pickles and the Watermelon salad was so refreshing and a lovely surprise on a otherwise traditional German menu.

The Maitre de (female with glasses) was a bit stern with us and another group. Later, she seemed more socialble with the band as they setup. staff was short due to a few callouts. Didn't need to know that. Our waitress did her best and provide ok service. The sausage and schnitzel were fine, but the sides (potato salad / sauerkarut) were a miss. Parking is a little strange (not well thought out). Might try again.

I LOVE the Old Stein Inn! For this particular occasion, I invited five friends who had never been before. The food and ambiance were absolutely lovely; I really enjoy the Alpine/German atmosphere and authentic feel. The food is yummy (although German food certainly isn't for everyone; it's quite meat/sausage heavy but there are good vegetarian options as well. Our only vegetarian had the vegetarian spaetzle which he liked quite a bit). Best of all, the Old Stein Inn's own Sylvia came over to our table and performed a couple of sets of old German/Austrian music, including some yodeling. It was such a treat, especially right before we had dessert. The Old Stein Inn is an absolute gem!

We had reservation's and still waited for over 18 mins. while a table of 8 with no reservations was seated. We sat in the garden for over 15 mins. before the waiter came to take our drink order. We gave him our drink order and app.'s and it took 20 mins.. my friends mom is 91 so we got her food with the app.s.. I asked for ketchup to be brought and he said he would be right back. He didn't come with our food for 15 more mins. and didn't bring the ketchup. We asked for 2 more drinks and the ketchup again. We finished our food and he finally come back and asked if we wanted anything else. ugh...we asked for check. It was so loud out there that we could hardly hear each other without hollering. Not a good experience..

I had the pork cutlet, which was well done and had been cook probably a few hours earlier and was mildly warm. As I do not openly complain at restaurants, I ate what I could, enjoyed another Bitburger bier, paid the tab and took my wife home. She, however enjoyed her Sauerbraten, white wine and was happy to be out for the evening. James

My wife & I had dinner at The Old Stein Inn last night, and we were a bit disappointed. I ordered their famous Beef Rouladen for the first time since the Dec. 2010 fire (since they are no longer a regular feature on the menu -- you have to catch them as a special), and they were definitely not as good as I remember them from before the fire: the preparation & presentation were very different, and the filling had an "off" flavor to it. My wife ordered the smoked pork sausages, and they were way too salty for her. Additionally, the service was very inattentive. In fact, a couple of times, were actually had to grab/call other servers to help us since our waiter seemed to have disappeared. (I think that it may have been because we were seated next to a very large group, and, as is usually the case in situations like that, the large group was getting the majority of his attention [because that's where the biggest tip will supposedly come from].) On a positive note, the live music by Sylvia on accordion was a nice treat (and a pleasant distraction while we were waiting for service . . . ).
Beer selection and quality is great. How ...
Beer selection and quality is great. However, food is not close to that. Although, it seems (reads) authentic from the menu, the quality is not quite there. Few items are home made and you can really tell which ones they are by the look and taste. Or you can even ask and they will tell you, no, we buy it. This restaurant has the potential to be a great one, but food needs a major overhaul.

This use to be our favorite special occasion place to go. But since our last visit about 6 months ago the taste and quality of the food has changed, the flavor is gone. The staff there is very nice and did listen to our complaints. However I was very dissatisfied when I asked if they had tried any of the dishes, they both replied no. One had food allergies not sure about the other manager. I really liked this restaurant I will go back to give it another try...

No German bread was offered this time and my meal was bland tasting. My wife really enjoyed hers though. We come on our anniversary yearly and this is the first time this has happened. The service was without fault.

When I made the reservation I noted in the occasion section that our guest was from Muenster, Germany. I was hoping that this would be passed on to the wait staff, it was not.
Our server was attentive and helpful. Our college age granddaughter and her friends enjoyed the food and the outdoor dining

I was somewhat disappointed by our dinner here, especially as I had lived in Germany when I was assigned there in the Army. The service was average, and the appearance of the Inn was rather grungy. I ordered a pork cordon bleu, with spaetlze. I have NEVER had a cordon bleu where the cheese and ham were simply laid on top of the schnitzel! The schnitzel itself was not up to snuff. The breading was damp, not crisp, and they did not appear to have tenderized the meat by pounding it out. I can and often do make my own spaetzle at home with a maker my German land lady gave us. It is miles beyond what I was served. It had no gravy, was not even buttered, and I couldn't even salt it, because the salt shaker was clogged. It appeared that letting one side of the mass of noodles char was the sole effort to affect the flavor at all...but it remained bland and tasteless. My son had a plain schnitzel, and my wife a jaegerschnitzel...and neither was happy with theirs either. And we spent over $130 for this meal??!! I could not in good conscience recommend this establishment, and plan not to return.

excellent taste of Germany. A slightly less greasy, less heavy schnitzel than what we ate while living in the Rheinland-Pfalz 20 years ago. good selection of german beers too. I liked the sampler, we could try several without having to drink so much. Was a little noisy when full, like a bierhall.

I have been wanting to visit for years. Maybe our night was the wrong night. I had to send my first order back because it was burned on the underneath. My waitress asked if I would like to get another to which I replied affirmatively. My friend was finished her meal before the replacement arrived. My greatest disappointment is that for YEARS I have heard glowing things from fellow restaraunt goers about TOS. Feel like I got cheated from enjoying a great meal with a great friend. Bummer
