Are you craving German food?

If you're in Greater Cleveland, you should check out these restaurants, which all offer fantastic German food.


If you're looking for a restaurant with fun vibes and tasty food, you can't go wrong with this joint near Playhouse Square. Customers highly recommend their soft pretzels, and they especially recommend getting them with the house-made bier cheese sauce. As for entrees, patrons love the jaegerschnitzel (which is a fried breaded pork cutlet that's covered with a delicious mushroom gravy, bacon, and onion straws and comes with spaetzle and homemade cranberry-orange relish), sauerbraten (Bavarian-style marinated pot roast), and potato and cheese pierogi. The restaurant also offers vegetarian options like vegan bratwurst and vegan pierogi. If you like to eat a lot of food, they offer a great buffet spread on Sundays with items like soft pretzels, prime rib, pierogis, and more.

Hofbräuhaus is located at 1550 Chester Ave, Cleveland, OH 44114.

Das Schnitzel Haus

This place in Parma is a local favorite for German food. As the name of the restaurant would suggest, they have great schnitzel (customers love the pork schnitzel and veal schnitzel). Patrons also highly recommend their flavorful chicken paprikash and stuffed cabbage (the filling includes beef, pork, smoked bacon, and rice). If you have room for dessert, their homemade apple strudel is a must.

Das Schnitzel Haus is located at 5728 Pearl Rd, Parma, OH 44129.

Der Braumeister Restaurant

Since 1983, this restaurant on the westside has been serving delicious German cuisine. Customer favorites include the St. Moritz schnitzel, which features perfectly fried breaded veal that's covered in melted Emmental cheese and tomato-olive oil sauce and served over a bed of fresh pappardelle pasta; chicken paprikash, which comes with your choice of spätzle or mashed potatoes; sauerbraten, which is flavorful marinated beef that's covered in a rich sweet and sour gravy; and German potato salad. If you need something to drink with your meal, the restaurant has an extensive beer list with brews imported from Germany. They also offer a fantastic brunch on Saturdays. Try their unique spin on eggs benedict (their take has rye bread rounds instead of the traditional English muffins, Bavarian ham instead of Canadian bacon, and a hollandaise sauce made with German mustard).

Der Braumeister Restaurant is located at 13046 Lorain Ave, Cleveland, OH 44111.
