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
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.
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.
