Excellent | Worth a Detour
Review by: Marlene Steinberg
Where have all the German restaurants gone? I don’t know about the others, but I found one fairly close to home!
I drove 46 miles to visit Jeanette’s Edelweiss because I’ve been craving Weiner schnitzel and spatzle. When I walked through the door I was instantly transported to a German Bierhaus, perhaps in Munich!
Every long wood table had a beer keg that could be filled for your party with the German beer of your choice. I’ve never seen this done before. There is also a stage for their German Band that plays at night. I was told that the nights are very lively.
Jeanette’s offers plain schnitzel with brown gravy and Jager schnitzel with mushroom gravy. You have a choice of chicken, pork, or veal. I ordered the veal Jager schnitzel with gravy on the side. I also asked for lemon, which was not a problem. That gravy was so good that I split it between the schnitzel and the spatzle. The veal was so tender that I could cut it with a spoon.
I had to try other items from the menu! Glad that we decided to share the sides because the portions served are more than enough for two. We ordered sides of red cabbage, sauerkraut and German potato salad… all delicious!
Quite full but still wanting to taste more, I brought home an appetizer plate of four different German sausages, a party size pretzel with 4 different dipping mustards, an order of currywurst, a Black Forest Ham and Cheese sandwich, and a small loaf of apple strudel, all of which will be shared.
Will I go back? Absolutely as I must taste the Sauerbraten, Rouladen, Bavarian Goulash and maybe more!
