    We visited for Sunday Brunch. This was our first visit to Rhein Haus. The chicken and waffles was really bad. The waffle was deep fried, maybe prepackaged and frozen? The chicken schnitzel was also deep-fried, hard and without flavor. It was disappointing and a few of us ordered it. The burger was basic (no complaints though!) and the Hunter's breakfast was good. We also ordered the cheese curds and the giant pretzel. The giant pretzel was fun, but not special as far as flavor or texture. The cheese curds were my personal favorite out of the two. I would order those again! The games and the waitress made the visit worth it. Our waitress was so kind, helpful and had us completely set up for a nice meal. (It wasn't her fault the food was below average!) We had a blast playing games, and that is why we came.

    Another great experience at Rhein Haus Tacoma. Claire did a great job taking care of us. We were glad to get eat here before they close their doors on May 15. We will miss this restaurant and Wally’s Wisconsin Tavern.

    Service was okay, not terrible. Food wasn’t that great and the prices are a bit steep for average food. The food was much better before Covid so I’m not sure if maybe a new cook or what. Kids menu needs to be updated a bit. And please for the love of god gets some menus or at least offer if you have them. It’s incredibly difficult to read them on the phone when you’re like me who’s wears glasses and the lighting is low. I had to scroll back and fourth to order and ended up forgetting to order my own food.

    We have been to both the Rhein Haus in Seattle and in Tacoma. The Tacoma location was fabulous and bustling with patrons in a German themed restaurant before the pandemic. The food was great to have a glimpse of German bar food. Post pandemic, the corporate owners have decided they needed to throw in the middle of the restaurant a "Wallys" which ironically is a Wisconsin themed restaurant where Wisconite's are trying to hold onto their German heritage?? Why would you want something twice removed in the state of Washington?? Well anyways, it appears that a few of the items that made the Rhein Haus special are lost. Hopefully they can bring back a few more authentic items instead of the poorly executed items they have now. Also, when the staff asks you what you want and busily walk off you assume they are going to be entering your order. After what seemed like a half hour, we had to remind our staff person of what we ordered. Even that was ordered half wrong and had to be redone.

    I was disappointed with the service. It was slow with several mistakes. They treated the mistakes like they were commonplace. They didn’t bring things like menus when asked, brought the wrong food, didn’t refill drinks, etc.

    Food was really good; drinks were really good. Service fell off at the end but was ok. We got the wurst sampler platter. The chicken andouille sausage was not good, but the others were amazing. Habanero cheddar was our favorite. I loved their French fries, thick cut, crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside. Spatzle was delicious. We’re a little bummed we didn’t try this place earlier.

    Food and service was great. The thing I have an issue with would be the seating, which was close. It was Saturday night @ 7pm and it wasn’t crowded, but our two top was in between two other two tops and we were maybe 4 feet away from the couples on either side of us. 6 people within 7/8 feet. Maybe spread people out more, or don’t use the middle table? If we weren’t dealing with COVID right now it wouldn’t be an issue, but we are.

    It's a good place to take your teenage kids if you also want beer for yourself - there are games and it's loud but not too bright, and unless you're a vegetarian there is something for everyone (though they did have impossible burgers if you are a vegetarian!). The best part of our experience was our server Cristie - I asked her how to spell her name so that I could call her out on a comment card. She was welcoming and friendly and funny and helped us fix our table that was rocking back and forth. :) She made a good experience great. We had a fun time after a snowy walk there!

    The overall noise was very distracting. The service was OK but not attentive. Portions we’re OK nothing overwhelming. But the most disappointing thing was at the 3 o’clock closing time basically asked to move to the bar. Normally restaurants that close at a certain time means it’s the last time they take customers. We were meeting old friends there knowing the restaurant closed at 3pm but thought we would at least be able to have a cup of coffee after our brunch. But instead we were kindly asked to move and the other servers were already putting their chairs on the tables and cleaning up. Very disappointing and doubt that will be back.

    This was my father's 80th birthday celebration, so in the special instructions I noted this and said we just needed to be able to navigate him, in his wheelchair, to a table where he could sit in a regular chair, and have room for the folded wheelchair to be stored without being in the way. My sister's family would be arriving before me and my father, so I told her not to wait for us, get our table and we would soon be there. I don't know if the staff looked at the note I made, as they tried to sit them at one of those tables where the chairs are so high, your feet don't touch the ground! She didn't accept it, so they rearranged some tables and sat them there. When my father and I arrived, we were led to our table by the hostess who had to clear a path through a bunch of people standing around drinking. Got some side eye and sneers from them, but eventually moved long enough to get by. The food was just ok. I had the Goulash, delicious, but a bit too salty as I finished the bowl. Dad had Jaeger Schnitzel, and everyone had a taste of it. We all liked it, but the mashed potatoes tasted as if they were still raw before being mashed. I ordered the Adenbrot for the table, and was surprised at how little there was for the price. The whipped butter was really good, but had to be chiseled away, as it was frozen, impossible to spread, so we just put chipped off pieces on the bread. The server was very patient in trying to help Dad find a beer he liked, there are sooooo many to choose from. He got a sample of one specialty kind, and didn't care for it, so she found him one closest to the store brand he was used to. My sister, a former server herself, remarked on how inattentive our server was, but thought it was because the large group of people we had to walk through, all one party, was taking up a lot of her time. Would we go there again? Possibly, it has the potential to be a fun experience trying some new food and beers, it just wasn't for us, at this visit.

    Used to go here all the time. The menu was not the same. Got the Wurst plate and it was 2 bratwurst with no sides. Lol it was a very awkward plate. They didn’t seem cooked enough :/. The entrees used to always come with sides. Also had the schnitzel and it was a little burnt/dry. Best part of our meal was the service and the cranberry mule.
