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
Wonderful selection of German Beers. The menu was not overwhelming, filled with German staples and done well. Plan to come again on weekends and when weather is warmer to really enjoy the beer garden atmosphere. Restrooms very clean, the whole place was clean and tidy. Wait staff very friendly
Old Stein did not disappoint on the food or the beer and wine, per usual. Our waitress was nice until she brought a third glass of wine to the table I didn't order. My husband had ordered another beer and even though I shook my head no on another glass of wine, she brought me one. Misunderstandings occur, but when I told her I didn't order it, I received a really negative response from her. That kind of soured the evening. As a former waitress, I always make sure to tip 20% or more, and we did so that night... but I didn't feel good about it.
We've been going to the Old Stein Inn for their excellent German food for several years. It never disappoints. The food is always delicious and satisfies our hankerin' for schnitzel and spaetzle. The only complaint is we think it's slightly overpriced. That said, we'll continue to go because it's one of the few German restaurants in the Baltimore/D.C. area.
Had wanted to try this "Authentic German Restaurant" for years. Came at 7:30 on a Sunday night: just a few table downstairs, ours the only one upstairs. The staff was very much in a hurry to get rid of us. We were in the middle of eating our appetizers when the entrées arrived. When I commented to the staff that we were still eating and that there was no room on the table, the food runner just replied "and the sampler platter is for?". We scrambled to consolidate the appetizers onto 1 plate while the entrées were literally shoved in front of us. We still had one of the appetizers platters in the middle of the table when desserts were brought.
The food was generally good: sample platter, beef rib, schnitzel. Jäger sauce was quite good. The only really bad thing was the Apfel Strudel: soggy, pasty and tasteless with very little apple, in other word: microwaved.
I'll try it again on a different night, hopefully soon.
The waitress was very personable and attentive despite having many tables, one of which was 8+ people and turned over twice. A nice touch was a strolling female accordion player that shared selected German tunes as she worked the entire restaurant. However, it would be nice for this ethnic restaurant to play German folk songs quietly in the background when the accordion player was on break or in parts of the restaurant where she could not be heard, to add to the ambiance of the meal experience.
This was our first time back to Old Stein Inn since the fire. Missed out on the old hominess that existed in the place. The décor is nice and they are extremely busy so we are glad we had a reservation. Parking can be a problem. But the food didn't disappoint. Potato pancakes , sauerbraten and sausages were all tasty. The sauerbraten sourness is primarily accomplished by the gravy so it did not seem like old school sauerbraten but it still tasted good. Worth the drive for an experience but not for a regular haunt. Service and beer were also acceptable.
I have been dining at Old Stein 3 or 4 times a year for the last 4 or 5 years. The food has always been excellent and the service has always been friendly and very good. My personal recommendation is the pork jagerschnitzel with the bacon mushroom gravy; it is heavenly delicious. The beer selection is plentiful. It can get a bit loud in the main dining area, so this is not a good place for cozy, intimate and quiet conversation and it is not a "fine dining" experience; this is a casual restaurant with great, authentic German atmosphere, beer and food. The recently enclosed outdoor biergarten is really nice too! Old Stein is one of my all time favorite restaurants. I wish I lived closer than the 30 miles that I do... I would be here more often.
Thank you again for another amazing meal! We came down with 6 people 3 dogs and a baby and our waitress managed it all wonderfully including surprising us and the birthday girl with.a cake (made of milk bones because the birthday girl was a 9 year old dog). One of my favorite places near annapolis.
Always reliable for traditional German gastropub dishes deftly prepared. Even though it was a busy Saturday night, service was warm and efficient, and the food just what we were craving. There is always a happy vibe there, a mix of families, couples of all ages, friends out for beer and a bite. Live music is always fun.
My spouse is from Philly, and this is his go-to place when he wants a real German pretzel to start. I love the thin, crispy potato pancakes and homemade applesauce to start. All the traditional sides are delicious. The schnitzels are thin, crispy, juicy and tender, the sausages just right.
Worth the drive if you haven't been there!
Dropped in for appetizers and beer. Had the dark sampler....all good. Tried one of the seasonal choices, elk meatballs. Very tasty. Also had the always excellent wurst and cheese platter, potato pancakes, pretzel and bread. Thanks to the staff for accommodating an additional diner not listed on our original reservation.
