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
My wife & I had dinner at The Old Stein ...
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. 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. ...
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

Cool German restaurant with outdoor seating and great beer. We were there during the day, but I would like to come back on a Friday or Saturday evening when there are more people. It was a fun, relaxing vibe. The service was wonderful. Glad to have a place like this outside of the city. Reminds me of Germany!

We were searching for a seafood restaurant, not sure how or why a mostly German food menu was in the list. After reviewing posts and the menu online we decided to give it a try. Extensive Beir and Wine list, plenty of room for indoor or outdoor covered dining. Service was excellent, food was very good although it came out a bit to fast after appetizer was delivered. Not all items from the online menu are available, not a seasonal thing as we asked about the hungarian goluash for example. Simply told we don't make that any more and have not updated the site. Other than that if you like German food, a wandering acordian player in a relaxing atmosphere this is a great choice

We get to Old Stein Inn 2-3 times per year. It rarely disappoints. This visit was no exception. The outdoor patio is still one of the best in the area. Recent upgrades make this space useable in almost all weather and this has not diminished its charm.
I would prefer more than one "rotating" beer, but overall, they still have an excellent selection of German (and other) beers.
Thee food is just adequate. Germans are not known for their fine cuisine, so this is no big surprise.
We come for the beer and the atmosphere.

The suerbraten was excellent as usual. I was very disappointed though that the "little dish rags" given to as napkins was the same as last time. They are NOT proper napkins. I even went to the trouble of BRINGING MY OWN NAPKINS just in case the "little dish rags" were on the dining table again. Those little rags are totally inappropriate for proper dining. I hope the person/persons responsible for them being there changes their mind and puts out a proper dining service. If they don't, or won't, I have one thing to say to them - "A pox on your house!"

Our reservation was for Sunday 5:30pm and we expected the crowd to be light. Inside this appeared to be the case, but The Continentals were playing in the garden and that seemed the place to be. Our group of six secured the last open table, received menus immediately, and we sat back to enjoy the music and make our beer and food selections. After 25 minutes our waitstaff still hadn't appeared to take our order, so we went to the bar to request at least our beers. From then on the evening improved, and a lovely young woman named Carrie cheerfully and accurately made sure to deliver all the food and drink we requested. The band was entertaining and the saxophone player even serenaded a 'happy birthday' to our special guest, capping off the event with style and more than just a little laughter on our part.

We were seated outside on the patio on a slow Thursday night. Food was great, but service could be improved. Waiter was not very attentive. We will definitely go back, but I guess we'll allow more time for less than optimal service.
