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
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!
Service at Old Stein was very pleasant and accommodating. We were seated promptly and given a choice between outside and indoor. The waiter patiently explained the menu and various alcoholic options. The restaurant was not crowded on the night we visited and so we did not feel hurried during the meal. Unfortunately the food itself was a disappointment. The pork schnitzel was rather bland and a bit tough. The Jagerschnitzel sauce (mushroom and bacon) just did not taste right to me. Likewise the smoked pork chops were not enjoyable--too much of a smokey flavor. Perhaps we were just unlucky and ordered dishes not to our taste.
Very authentic feel! Good beer selection, plus other drinks if beer is not the way for you to go. Had the schnitzel --- someone at the table had chicken, someone else had pork -- both were quite tasty, along with the spatzel and pickled cabbage. A fun night out!
Second time here and not sure what was going on this time around. Restaurant wasn't busy - took forever to get drink order in. Food took a long time considering the low volume. Lukewarm jaeger sauce and served cold soup. One of the drinks ordered was just below room temperature.
We were celebrating my son's birthday. The food and service were both outstanding! We sat on the patio however it was rather warm and the fans were not keeping it cool when the patio filled up. The hostess had offered us inside seating when we arrived so we chose to sit outside which would have been perfect on a cooler evening.
This place is usually very reliable. We had a 1:30pm reservation on a very hot Sunday afternoon. As soon as we walked in we noticed that it was very hot inside like the air conditioning had not been turned on all day. We sat down and ordered some beer and some appetizers. It took between 5 and 10 minutes to get our beer and we ordered our main dishes. Ten minutes later our mains show up with our appetizers and by that time we had finished our beer and had our food without drinks. It look another 5 minutes to get more drinks. Luckily, the food was great as always. But the service and setting was horrendous and I left the restaurant covered in sweat it was so hot.
This was our first time eating at the Old Stein Inn and we had a great experience. The menu is very German! The servers were very helpful in explaining the menu and offering guidance. The food was DELICIOUS. Big portions too. We were painfully full when we left, and it was so worth it. The beer menu is great too. We'll be back!
We drove from Northern Delaware because my husband and I have wanted to try this restaurant for a few months. My husband is German/Swiss, so we knew what we were looking for in a German Restaurant. I was greeted nicely at the reception area by Sonja, whom I had spoken to over the phone. We sat outside even though it was extremely warm. A few more fans would have been nice.Our server Dani was a very sweet and kind young woman, eager to serve and keep her customers happy. The food was quite good and plentiful. We had the nice appetizers of potato pancakes, which was fresh and tasty and homemade applesauce to accompany them. The sampler platter of landjager, gurkens and three types of mustards were also good. My entrée of short rib sauerbraten with potato dumplings and red cabbage was quite lovely. One exception, the ribs could have been more tender had they braised them a while longer to break down the tendons. The dumplings were really nice and the flavors stood out well.
My husband brought home kassler ripchen (smoked pork chops). They were huge! The sauerkraut was not so good and the potato salad was just okay. The apfelstrudel was nice and tasty.
All in all, there was a nice German atmosphere, as far as that goes being in America. It was worth the drive, but cannot be done often, as it is a bit far. We would recommend this restaurant to friends and acquaintances. By the way, they are a pet-friendly restaurant (we brought along our Teckel) as long as the pet is well behaved! Thank you everyone. We will go back again.
Only and 3 of 5. The food was okay, as was the seating and the drinks. The issue is it's not a German restaurant, it is a German themed restaurant. The difference is in the feeling of the place. When you go to the Europa Grill in Georgetown, it feels like German; with food, music, wait staff... Germany!!!!. The Old Stein Grill... probably an American that lived in Germany and wanted to create the experience. Will I go again, yes. I stated the food is fine (beer is great); I no longer live in Germany and I for a good bier (beer), I guess I can accept a waiter with a southern accent.
