The meal had goulash, sauerbraten and 3 other meats. The sides of sauerkraut, red cabbage and potatoes were all served family style. Along with it were mouthwatering Edelweiss Restaurant homemade rolls. These would have been worth the trip all by themselves.
We almost felt as though we had stepped into a small part of Germany. Adding authenticity is a large collection of nutcrackers. Beer aficionados will be happy at Edelweiss in Staunton, Virginia. Not only was the food good but the decor was fun. There was a wide selection of German beer and they had a collection of interesting steins.
Don't feel that you have to take my word alone. Trip Advisor has several reviews of the restaurant that may be informative. You may also want to visit Yelp.Com for more insights.
I was able to speak with the owner of Edelweiss in Staunton, Virginia. His slight accent assured me that the German food is authentic. We chatted about the impending hurricane and his trip to Tennessee. His friendliness added to our visit. Our experience was positive. It will be a must-stop on our next trip through Staunton.
