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!

Authentic ethnic cuisine, well prepared, which was confirmed by German friend who dined with us. Loved the accordionist.

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.
Good Food, service not so good
The service was very slow. I believe our waitress was also bar tending. Food was good.
Night out with Friends
This was only the second time we were at the restaurant, but the food was great and our server Lauren was awesome. We will definitely be coming back.
Fantastic German cuisine and beers!

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.

We went for lunch on our way to Annapolis and we encountered great food and service. Highly recommend!
Old Stein Inn
The food was fresh and excellent. The service was quick and excellent. Our server, Carrie was friendly, attentive, and a joy with a good sense of humor. Very professional as well. We enjoyed the accordion music and singing which was an added plus. The atmosphere was friendly with the typical German ambiance. Very enjoyable dining experience.
While a bit noises, and definitely not an appropriate pick for a romantic night out, I am always very happy with both the food and the service. And, for beer lovers, their selection is very nice.

We had an enjoyable evening with 2 other couples. Our waitress was friendly and helpful. She brought out a taste of the sauce used in the sauerbraten so we could taste it and see if it would be too spicy, which it wasn't. She was attentive throughout the evening and gave recommendations for dessert. We all enjoyed our meals. The food was excellent.
Red Cabbage and more
At least a week in advance of our visit, I begin to salivate over the thought of red cabbage and sauerbraten. My husband always selects the smoked pork chop and enjoys the extensive beer list. The dessert, the May special, needs to be a permanent addition to the already yummy choices.

Very authentic German food with an impressive beer and wine list. Everyone had a wonderful time and we really enjoyed the variety of dishes. Something for everyone. The service was excellent, with very good attention to the customers, but not too much where they catch you with your mouth full and make a pest of themselves. The server was very knowledgeable about the different dishes and what drinks would go well with them. A little pricey for an everyday type of meal, but well worth the price. We stayed for hours and never felt rushed, even with it being a Friday night and packed. Do recommend reservations. It was a little chilly to sit in the Biergarten that night, but we noticed they did have patio heaters and, I believe, a fire pit. Will try out the Biergarten next time...and there will definitely be a next time.
Great food and service
Had a reservation for Friday night. Arrived a little early and was quickly seated in the main dining room. There was also an outside beer garden but was a little chilly so went with inside. The waiter was great, very knowledgeable and friendly. Provided some great recommendations. Beer selection was fantastic and food was delicious, from appetizer to desert. Would gladly come again.
We live about 40 miles from this restaurant. Consequently, we have dined here only about 2 or 3 times a year for the past 5 or 6 years. We have always had excellent meals here. Tonight it was not quite up to their high standard. I can't explain exactly what was wrong, but it just wasn't as good as usual. I'm hoping it was just an off-night. We'll be back to try them again and report back then.
Service was strange
We have been to the Old Stein Inn several times and always enjoy the food, although I did not enjoy the asparagus dish I had this past time. There was little to no asparagus in it. I'm not a big German food fan anyway, but the service was terrible in that we were rushed the entire meal. No one wants to be ignored in a restaurant, but they also don't want to be interrupted by the waiter constantly. I felt like we were rushed through dinner right to dessert and then we decided to talk a while after we ate, but the waiter and two other restaurant workers kept hounding us for the check. It was VERY irritating and it wasn't because the restaurant was so crowded that they had to get people out to seat more people. There were plenty of tables. We were very disappointed in this behavior. I hope they don't do that again!!!
Germany comes to Maryland
Had a work colleague from Germany and we always talked about having a meal in Germany well I retired and we never that chance. On Saturday we met here with his family and had a great meal and a wonderful time While it may not have been in Germany it certainly felt like it. A great meal and time was had by all
Good German Fare
We have been to The Old Stein Inn many times. We enjoyed the indoor atmosphere when it was a house. When they remodeled after a fire, the indoor part lost a lot of charm. The outdoor dining is still very pleasant. The German food and beer are what we go there for. It's not a fancy place, and is better for groups of people.
I love the Old Stein Inn! Go frequently... esp since they opened the Beir Bar!
Eating at Old a Stein Inn
Although the waitress was very attentive, the timeliness of the food was atrocious. The waitress apologized twice for the delay in delivering our entree which did not come for at least 40 minutes after our appetizer. She said a large order was put in just before us. I do not see this as an excuse. Large and small orders are coming into the kitchen all the time if the restaurant is busy.
Nice outside - kitchen was a bit backed up
This a one of our favorite places! Suspect that the sunshine brought out more people than the kitchen was staffed for and our food was a bit slow in arriving.
It delivers everytime! The food is great, beer fantastic, and great friendly vibe!

We just keep going back! Food is outstanding, beer is old country, Silvia can really play that squeeze box. Life is good!
