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

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.

The food was great. We did have reservations and I would recommend that for a Saturday night. It is usually crowded. We have dined there a number of times in the past and never have been disappointed. A situation did occur after we paid our bill. The server asked us to move outside to the bar area or a table outside because they were busy and wanted to seat a party at our table. I have never had this happen before. We finished our drinks and quickly left. Upon leaving I noticed there was no one waiting. I called later and talked to the manager about the situation. She stated it was their policy to ask patrons to leave when they were done if it was busy and they had a reservation waiting. She also said the patrons with the reservation weren't there yet but we're expected soon. I won't be going back. There are far too many restaurants in the area.
The Old Stein is a tired-and-true destination for German food that is really good, but really bad for you. No nouvelle cuisine here. The only distraction is the uneven service from the staff -- they appeared to be overwhelmed with the crowd, but were charming as usual.

Fantastic ... again. Old Stein is a gem. The food is always terrific. The service is always cordial. The entire dining experience is a treat that I brag about to friends, family and folks visiting the Annapolis area.

We love the Old Stein Inn; have been coming here for years and love sitting out in the garden. The atmosphere is always upbeat and celebratory. Great beer selection; the spaten optimator on tap is smooth and rich. They also have special monthly beer selections that are worth trying. We always start with the wurstplatte appetizer. I often order one of the old stein wursts for the main course, but this visit had one of the specials - salmon on a plank - which was moist and flavorful, and included tasty sides of spätzle and grilled asparagus. My son loves the sauerbraten and the kassler rippchenone chop (grilled smoked pork chop) is another favorite. Save room for the apple cheesecake dessert; it's delicious.

This is one of our favorite places for casual dining with fantastic food, and the beer of course! The wurst plate or the potato pancakes are great starters. Try the steak frites or the salmon if German dishes aren't your thing. But if they are, there isn't a bad choice on the menu. Try the Jagerschnitzel or, if you are really hungry, the pork shank. The meat just falls off the bone.

We went to Old Stein Inn just for a night out with family. We arrived early but didn't have to wait long for our table. Our waiter, Greg, was very good. Service couldn't have been any better. The food was awesome--as always.

Enjoyed an impromptu night out for dinner and enjoyed the food and ambiance. Wait staff were attentive and very friendly. We have eaten here before and always have a nice evening. Wine was a bit pricey for the venue.

Food was excellent. Best German food I've found outside of Germany! The braised pork, sauerbraten, spaetzle, and homemade pretzels are to die for. Oh, and the beer, great selection. Thanks so much for a wonderful evening with friends and relatives.
