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
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.
Highly recommend this authentic German restaurant with great schnitzel and a wide selection of German beer. The Staff was quite attentive and accommodating. We arrived thirty minutes early for our reservation and the Staff found us a table immediately. This is definitely a keeper--we will be coming back time and again!
Inattentive waiter, menu changes were subtle but very noticeable...what was tenderloin medallions became flank steak...and not very well prepared. Sat dry without refills for the meal...not good. Made specific request and waiter ignored them. Very poor! Do not be a waiter if you do not like people.
Disappointing overall, it was like the A team was on vacation....
We were describing the food we'd just had in Germany to our friends and decided to show them what we were talking about at Old Stein. Love the beer choices-plenty on offer. My husband had the Schweinehaxe which was very tender and better than the one he'd had in Rothenburg last month. Old Stein is an occasional treat though as it can be expensive-twice what you'd pay in Germany. But we'll keep coming back. Our server, Ariadne, was great and the food arrived fairly quickly.
Need to indicate seasonal nature of menu. No veal schnitzel or goulash soup although on internet menu. The food is good although a little pricey but comparable to other German restaurants in a 50 mile radius of DC. Not the German gastatte ambience we expected.
I went to Old Stein Inn with my family at the recommendation of my dad's girlfriend and we were all thrilled! The food was delicious and the beer list was long. My dad used to live in Germany, and he said it was the closest he'd had to authentic German food since he left. It was a bit of a drive for us, but well worth it!
Someone recommended this place to us. We came on a Sunday afternoon for a birthday celebration and sat in the biergarten. We were very disappointed about the whole experience. The lighting was nice but the decor and service was average. There were a couple of dogs in the biergarten. Our food order was incorrect and bland and they were running out of items on the menu. The menu prices are high for what you get. The soft pretzel appetizer was small and had three sauces with it. One was a buttery spicy sauce with little flavor, sour cream, which could have been a cheese sauce, and a brown mustard. It was over-priced and not very good. For a German restaurant, it was pretty boring and had no entertainment when we were there. The German beer (Kosch) was good.
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.
