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
Old Stein Inn's German Food is a bit pricey for what you get. Most dishes are $19 and up. I found my favorite thing so far on this last visit. The Chicken Schnitzel Sandwich on a Pretzel Roll. $16. Included a large serving of hand cut fries and cucumber cabbage slaw. It was a full size chicken cutlet folded in half - nice serving! I do not recommend the smoked trout spread appetizer - a bit strong and not much flavor otherwise.
We had reservations, and still had to wait 30 to 45 minutes for our table....we had two waiters, but still had to wait.....just returned from a trip to Germany(Deutschland) and their restaurant prices we considerably lower? I was able to buy dinner including several beers and wine for 6 people for under 155 euros(rounded up). I did enjoy the music.
For some of the best authentic German food this side of the pond, try Old Stein Inn. In addition to the favorites like at least 9 versions of schnitzel they have saurbraten and schweine haxe and many kinds of wurst. Everything we had was well prepared and delicious. We especially enjoyed the soft pretzel appetizer and the wurst and cheese plate.
They also have a great selection of imported German beers both on tap and in bottles as well as a fine selection of wines.
Although the place was packed the service was great.
They have a big outdoor biergarten too.
The service was impeccable! Friendly, attentive but not cloying. Seated right away (we had reservations), bier garden is great, love the accordion music, and the food is amazing! I had the pork shank-delicious!!, my husband had the steak & frites-he loved it, and my son LOVES the Bavarian soft pretzels here. I'd highly recommend this neighborhood gem to everyone!!!
Old Stein Inn is one of our favorite places to good for good food and excellent German beer. Service is always great and they usually have some fun music on the weekends. The biergarten is where we always sit. It is a great local place to take out of town guests.
The food is authentic German. The pork shank is our favorite. The meat falls right off the bone. Huge selection of beer. The beer garden is fun an lively. Sylvia and her accordion are an extra treat.
If you want a quieter dinner, head inside to the restaurant
Very disappointed that on a Saturday night at 6 they were out of sauerbraten. That is the only entree I have ever ordered and I was looking forward to it . The waitress recommended fish & chips but it wasn't very good . First time in 15 years of eating dinner there that I've been disappointed.
This might have been our fifth or sixth time at The Old Stein Inn. It is always a wonderful dining experience. We came in on a Saturday afternoon and sat out in the bier garden, and had a fantastic meal. Our server was a bit overly attentive, but otherwise everything was fantastic. Can't wait to go back.
The food here is always good, and we had a very nice waitress. We were a bit put off by the $2 charge to substitute the vegetable of the day for red cabbage -- it's not as if it cost them anything. Even worse, they wanted to charge $4 more to have a sauce put on the side on a dessert. Not very customer friendly.
An excellent interpretation of a German Gasthaus with very good food, ten on-tap German draft beers, dozens of bottled beers, wine, plus great German food selections from simple sausages (wurst) to fancy schnitzels, delicious appetizers, and tasty desserts.
Dine inside for comfort and more intimacy; dine outside for a German festival atmosphere in a weather protected biergarten!
We hadn't been to the Old Stein Restaurant for over a year and found it as good as ever. The pork schnitzel, weiswurst and bratwurst were excellent as was the red cabbage, potato pancakes and sauerkraut. Potato salad was a little bland but the wine (Geverstiminer) and beer were very good. Service was perfect. A dinner roll would have been a nice addition. Can't wait to go back again!
The appetizer sampler platter was okay. The chicken pate was way too sweet. the meats were okay. One pickle was very spicy (scharf) and not fitting for a German meal.
The schnitzel sandwich was horrible - did not work and the chicken was tasteless.
The sour beef was okay, the red cabbage was weird. I have to say, many of the flavors overall were weird, just off. I have much experience with German food and this was disappointing.
If you enjoy authentic German food and a large selection of kegged and bottled beer imported from Germany there's no other place anywhere in the metro area that can compare. The biergarten is a great place on an autumn evening with live music on the weekends.
This was my second trip to the Old Stein Inn. As the last time the food was amazing and we had a great time. If you don't like German food, this isn't for you, but who doesn't like German food? Service was excellent and the band was fun! I highly recommend a reservation.
Overall our experience was very good. I was a little disappointed in the food this time - no veal on the menu so I had to settle for pork schnitzel. The atmosphere was quieter than usual - perhaps because it is the end of the summer season. A great place, however, to gather with friends and family
The host said I reserved an inside table, which I did not. He said we could sit outside at a pub table near the bar. Walked outside and there were at least 8 tables for 4 open. No one else came in for another hour. It was weird. Not sure what his problem was.
Today I had the Gemuse Spaetzle. I've had every entree on the menu and just tried this. It is my new favorite. The seasonal vegetables are so fresh and seasoned so nice. It was a delicious mix of corn, peppers and grated carrots. MY spouse had the bratwurst, red cabbage and spaetzle. A regular favorite. We also tried the fried pickles. They changed them up since last time we had them. They are now about the size of French fries, crispy and salty. Beer was nice and cold.
Visited the Old Stein Inn for a Birthday with a group of Germans! The beer selection was great and the food was tasty. The menu isn't as big as I expected, but everyone was very happy with it! Well worth a visit. We tried a few beer flights, the crab soup, schnitzel and special of the day. Service was on point and we sat outside on the patio. Great atmosphere!
There was a lunatic lady dancing table to table and at one time she got on the floor and she was lying down with a strange customers dogs. Then she started dancing with the strangers dogs. This was very odd behavior and she should have been reigned in but the management let her do whatever. The customer with the dogs left then she started dancing our way so we paid our checkand left too. The manager should have called the police and had the drunk removed. This place is very expensive so for them to let this go on it's insane. Whatever rathole!
