I really want to continue visiting Steinhaus Keller, but the food has not been consistent the last couple of visits and the service has been sub-par. The hunter cream sauce has been very salty has had an odd red color and flavor. Generally wish there was more consistent output from the kitchen.

Really good German food and beer selection. Nice outdoor seating area and they are dog friendly. We always go when we are in Hot Springs.

Outstanding authentic German cuisine and superb German beer. Loved the Goulash and wife raved over her Chicken Diane. We'll be back often!

So we made a reservation in advance. When we arrived on a weeknight, the restaurant was not very busy but there was a very large group in the back of older couples. We were seated RIGHT NEXT TO this huge group in a restaurant with many empty tables. I asked the manager why and he said it was because that waitress was up next for a table. It was not ideal. Luckily the large group filtered out the 1st 15-20 min we were there. We ordered 3 appetizer sized plates and all were excellent.

Would definitely go back. Good selection of food and drink. The food and cocktails were great. Our only issue was with our server - had to ask multiple times for water and the bread basket.

We are celebrating our anniversary this week and when we the notice the restaurant we had to dine there.
We lived in Germany when we were in our 20’s and we love the Wiener Schnitzel which was outstanding last night.

This is a gem of a restaurant! My husband is German, and as we live in an area that is normally devoid of great ethnic cuisine, this was a great treat on our weekend get-away. Reservations are highly recommended. We were seated at a wonderful table right near the adorable accordion player. The lamb lollipops were very good and the rest of our entrees and sides were absolutely amazing! The flavor was great and very authentic. Our server was very sweet an attentive. The wait for the food might seem a little long, but anyone who has been to Europe (and especially Germany) knows that the meal is an event to be savored and enjoyed, not rushed. This is a great place to enjoy with family and friends! We will definitely be back when we return to Hot Springs again!

This place was hopping! We didn’t expect much because they were so busy but the staff was attentive, friendly, and very accommodating. This is one of the top 10 meals I’ve had in my 44 years. Absolutely phenomenal. I will come back to Hot Springs again specifically because of this place ice cold beer, excellent atmosphere, and great people. Thank you

The food beginning with the appetizers main course of Jager schnitzel and apple strudel dessert was excellent. This has been about the fifth time I have eaten at Steinhaus Keller and it has always been most enjoyable and very authentic German food.

For Hot Springs, this is an excellent restaurant! Everything was tasty, but the mushroom appetizer was quite salty and the goulash soup was over powered with paprika. Service was really good, especially knowing they were short staffed during the pandemic and we were there on a holiday weekend (Labor Day). Atmosphere is unique. Definitely worth a visit! I’ve been there several times since my folks used to live nearby. I’ll go back if I’m in the area again.

We got there at 7:30 and there was a violinist playing a variety of music that everyone can enjoy. The food is really good and a decent price. Traditional food and some eclectic. The place feels like a mix of a casual traditional bier garden and classy dining. Met some folks who drove 45 min to just eat here and I can see why. It was so nice we came back the next day for lunch. We liked it all…the cheese board with belgian cheese, hot bier cheese with the extra large pretzel, hot cabbage salad, cabbage rolls, etc. even the traditional german ice cream dessert was wonferful. Well be back!

The service was AWFUL! We only got a refill once. Our waitress was off doing something else. I bet the waitress for the table next to us checked on them every 5 minutes. Our would walk past and not even say anything. Told her our drink was wrong and she never fixed it. The food was over rated. Don’t waste your time.

I had not been to Steinhaus Kellar for several years, but everything remained excellent. My wife had Chicken Cordon Bleu which she raved about. I had the Saurbraten which was also delicious. We knew we had to save room for dessert as they are always good. My wife had the warm Apple Strudel and I had the Black Forest cake.

Steinhaus Kellar was very busy with several large groups, but the service was prompt with everything served at the right time and temperature.

We look forward to returning to Steinhaus Keller again.

What a shame! This used to be a great little place and we have been going for years. Don’t know what changed, but it has. The food used to be some of our favorite as we are from Germany. This time it was such a disappointment.

Very delicious dinner and there was a very big selection of great German food. We were there when the restaurant opened at 3 pm and were greeted by very pleasant staff and felt special, being the only ones in the restaurant. However, being the only ones being seated and served does not mean that you are special. This is not a hit, but the service was not very great and it took a long time to receive our meal, not good for the only customers in the restaurant. With this being said, the food was outstanding and the beer was delicious. The bill was high, but the food was definitely worth it. I would recommend to everyone, give the Steinhaus Keller a try, it will be worth it.

It might be a German themed restaurant, but it’s food is far from authentic German food. The bottled German bier is good, but the rest was lacking. Service was good.

The experience overall was amazing. All the way from getting seated to the live music to dessert. I highly recommend this place!! Only downside to the experience, but certainly NOT a compliant, is the we were seated about 10 minutes past reservation time.. But I'm not mad about it..
