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
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.
We went to the Old Stein Inn for our anniversary with our little one in toe. The staff we interacted with were all incredibly friendly and the food was fantastic. The atmosphere was laid back and relaxed. We had a great experience and highly recommend the Old Stein Inn to anyone looking for delicious German food and a top notch drink selection.
The food and the atmosphere were excellent! Went here for our 1st wedding anniversary. I recently had jaw surgery and had to eat through a syringe. The waiter was very polite and accommodating. The soup was the only thing that I could have, and it didn't work out so well with the syringe, but it tasted good! It was my wife's first time having German food, and she absolutely loved everything! She couldn't get over how great the food was! Will definitely come back when I'm eating normally and not through a syringe!
First class dining experience with fantastic authentic German food and German beer. The German band was a real treat to listen to as well. By far the best dining experience I've had in years. You must try the German beers...SO GOOD! Worth every penny I spent!
First time, pleasantly surprised. Hubby liked the beer flights. Had a great warm grog with fruit. Tried the potato pancakes with apple sauce. Did not like the fried pickles, too greasy. Hubby had venison goulash which he liked. I had the ribeye over spring mix, steak was stringy and fatty. Showed it to waitress, like half the steak. Seated upstairs in a booth so did not hear the music.
This is one of our family's favorite restaurants. The German food is authentic and also experimental. This week we got the whiskey flight, which is a great idea. The potato pancakes are perfect and served with the best apple sauce I've ever had. The jugersnitzle comes with tons of mushrooms. The new enclosed patio was a visual treat warm and cozy even in Jan., with a nice view of the garden. The desserts were also wonderful, or you can have shot of apfelkorn if you like to drink your desserts.
An excellent time and meal for New Years Eve dinner. Considering this dinner we did make a reservation. Service was very attentive. We ordered multiple dishes that were brought to our table in a very timely manner. We have been here before and have never been disappointed with the service or meal.
Plans were canceled for my mother in law she had with a friend for dinner so the wife and I decided to finally take her to The Old Stein Inn which we had been once before and loved. We traveled from Columbia, MD (about 50 minutes) to get our table which we had reserved @ 7:30 through Open Table. When we arrived there was a sign on the door which indicated Cash Only. I dropped the girls off and drove 10 miles west to the nearest ATM I could locate. While waiting to be seated I overheard the hostess telling a patron on the phone about the cash situation. I really wish we would have been given a heads up over the phone as well.
30 minutes later we were enjoying our entrees. The food is amazing. Having spent 2 weeks in Germany earlier in the month I can say that the OSI has got the authentic down pat. Our service was so-so, the waitress seemed annoyed the time we were there. Towards the end of the meal , she dropped to-go containers and a dessert menu on the table without any word and walked away.
Would definitely go back even with the small inconveniences and mediocre service.
Slight glitch with app. Didn't hold Rez for 7pm. "Server down". Really wanted the venison. It was only available in carpaccio. I asked if they could throw it on a pan with butter. Answer back was "there's no room in the kitchen". What is that? Had a bad experience from there on out. Legit German food.
Service, wine and food were outstanding at a good value. The 2-piece band on the 17th was really entertaining and played Holiday, German and requested music; albeit generally a little on the fast side. Our waiter was knowledgeable about the menu and wine as well as very attentive during our stay. Been coming here for over 20 years; will continue to patronize in the future.
The manager was excellent about seating us earlier than our reservation which was greatly appreciated. Our server was Riley. The guy is absolutely awesome! Ask for him. Service was fast, yet not rushed. His beer knowledge is solid. The selection is great. I highly recommend.
We will never go back there. They did not offer us bread or water. The price of the meal was $ 93.00. For that price you would think the service would be better. We go to a German Restaurant in Playa del Carmen Mexico. The food is great, prices are better and they give us bread. We go there four or five time a year.
We were there to celebrate my brother's birthday. Olde Stein Inn is his favorite! We get the Schweinhoxe and it is always tender and delicious. I have enough left over for lunch the next day. The staff is friendly. They have outdoor heated tables. And they have live music on some nights.
The family had a great time on the enclosed patio with the band. It was cold outside, but warm inside. Loved the Christmas music and the tuba with the holiday lights. My son ordered a flight of light beer and I ordered a flight of dark beer. Then we shared and compared.
We tried some dishes that we have not had before and were not disappointed. Great food. Very tasty and plenty of it. Lots to box up and take home for an extra meal.
We make an annual trip to the Old Stein Inn, usually to celebrate a birthday. The staff is always pleasant, and the food is quite good. If you order beer and appetizers and dessert, the bill can be fairly steep, but the price is worth it. If you skip the beer (but, why would you?) it's really reasonably priced.
This was not what we expected. It was written up in The Washingtonian, but what we got wasn't anything to rave about. My wife and I had Chicken and Pork Schnitzel. The breading wasn't a good flavor and wasn't at all crisp. The potato salad was lacking flavor and the potatoes weren't cooked properly. The only thing that was good was the red cabbage and beer. For the price we paid, I expected better. Would never return or recommend friends to dine there. We drove from Woodbridge, VA to eat there.
This was the first time in a long time that I have been to the Old Stein Inn. The food was delicious, the range of beers and wines was impressive, and the atmosphere was cozy, if not a little loud. We ate in the main area, not the bier garden, which had a live band at the time. Our waiter was a bit harried because there were a lot of large parties the night we went, but he was very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu.
We sat inside on this visit as we weren't real interested in being outside with the live band. Not a fan of live music at restaurants.
Everything we ordered was very good. It appears that no matter how crowded they get, they are able to handle things well.
It took a little while to get waited on at first but once the ball started rolling, things were very good.
Highly recommend making a reservation no matter what night you plan to visit. This place gets very busy and without a reservation, you could be in for a long wait, especially if you have a larger group.
Old Stein Inn does a great job of bringing Old Europe to modern day. Their outdoor bier garten has been expanded and with it, so have the seasons in which you can enjoy it! Outdoor heaters are more than ample to keep the area comfortable. The band is always a great touch to complete a nice German dinner experience. Enjoy!
