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

This is one of our favorite restaurants! Great German beer and food. At times they have traditional German bands which just adds the dining experience. We enjoy eating in at the booths or outside in the beer garden. We highly recommend to our friends.

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.

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!

I truly love this restaurant - especially when in need of comfort food and wheat beer. However, the service was absolutely abysmal. On three separate occasions, we needed to ask someone to please find our waiter so we could request a second glass of wine, dessert menu, water refill and finally the check.
No refills for coffee were offered.
Still intend to continue to visit, but will refuse service from this waiter.

We always enjoy the Old Stein. The staff is friendly, welcoming, and helpful. The kitchen is developing new dishes all he time. Half the fun is trying new ideas. I also want to highlight the fact that they have a large garden plot less than twenty five yards from the kitchen. The Old Stein is destination dinning that retains it's neighborhood charm.

We love the Old Stein Inn! Great beer, great food, great staff! I love that we can make online reservations! Food is just like my German grandmother's food! Yummo! Thanks for the experience. Will be back for Wild Game Month!

Food was awesome, but the server was less than adequate. He barely looked at us and made us feel like each time he came to the table was only a drive-by on the way to something better. We had to shout loudly to ask for drink refills and enough bread for everyone at our table. This was my second time at Old Stein, and first time bringing friends, so I was a little embarrassed that I raved about the awesome service (I had the first time). Now I'm not so sure if I'd return again.

Love this German themed restaurant. The sausages, meats, and specialties are awesome. We have eaten here several times with friends we have traveled to Germany with and we have not been disappointed. Great beer menu and good wine list - there is something for everyone. There wasn't any music when we were there but when it is, it just adds to the evening's enjoyment.

I took some friends to the Old Stein Inn for their wedding anniversary, and in addition to the food being very good, the best part of our dining experience was our waiter, Riley. He was a most personable and energetic young man who seemed to take great pleasure in making sure that we were completely satisfied. Thank you, Riley.

We have been going to Old Stein for years and have had great food and service until this past Sunday! The service staff were hard to find and less than upbeat, after all, it was Octoberfest at a German restaurant. The beer was served semi cool. The wine special was sour, along with the veal schnitzel which was sour and heavily breaded in Panko breadcrumbs??!
The appetizers were the highlight. Had hoped that the dessert would be good, but the check was presented to us without being asked if we would like to try some. So we left, definitely with a bad taste overall.

The Old Stein was authentic German food that lived up to every expectation. The truly authentic German Beer selection was outstanding. We had the wurst plate - like a sampler of the different sausages, a bowl of the Munster cheese crab soup; the jaegersnitztel with veal, and the pork shank. All were outstanding. We dined inside but they also have a patio type area that had a live band and plenty of happy patrons dancing and drinking the great beers! We will make the 1 hour drive again for sure.
We received a call the day of our reserv ...
We received a call the day of our reservation asking if we wanted to sit outside or inside. I chose outside. I wish the person would have explained that our table would be right next to the band! We were there with friends who we don't see very often and were unable to have any conversation at all. Thankfully, we asked if we could be moved inside and we were accomodated.
That saved the evening.

Hands-down one of the best restaurants we've been to in Maryland. The food was outstanding the beer was amazing and the service was excellent. They had a live band outside that you can hear which was wonderful. Kind of pricey but that's just because we had beer and appetizers. Jager schnitzelwas perfect
This was our first visit ...and by no me ...
This was our first visit ...and by no means our last...the food was OUTSTANDING !! The portion sizes were large. The best German food I have ever had. I recommend the potato pancakes and applesauce as a starter. The Sauerbraten was awesome! Can't wait to return. I do recommend reservation ...Friday night was very busy which in understandable since the food is so good. Parking can be a little tricky so if you can car pool do so. if you have to park off the lot don't bring a lowrider.

I love the sauer beef. I'm a bourbon drinker (which of course, they have) but I am "game" to try the beer on tap. They have a fun variety. It's especially fun to sit out back and listen to the music. I learned a german drinking song the last time I was there.

The lively beirgarten and table-side minstrel sets the Oktoberfest tone for a relaxed, authentic German meal. Not cheap, but a well-heeled place to enjoy friends, great beer, and to let your hair down a little. Go with a big crowd and add to the energy!

We used to love this restaurant but this last time the food was awful. Totally tasteless. They did offer a free dessert but honestly it wasn't that great either. For really great German food visit cafe Mozart in downtown D.C. It is fabulous.
