Glockenspiel Restaurant Review

: Bavaria has come to St. Paul in the form of the good-time Glockenspiel. The owner fell in love with German cuisine while stationed in the army and has brought some authentic recipes and traditions home. You have to love a place where you can get those huge pretzels as a side dish to your massive liter of Hacker-Pschorr beer. With its high ceilings and wooden benches and tables, you might as well be in a Munich beer hall; the joviality of the St. Paul crowd also helps. But the food is the true adventure. We like starting out lightly, with, say, a platter of assorted herring (i.e. pickled, in cream sauce, etc.). Then it’s time to dig in to the heavy stuff: sauerbraten or schnitzel or any of the other meat-laden entrées; even the kasespaetzle, a tangy version of mac 'n' cheese, is generous and filling. Service seems far from the stoic German stereotype. After dinner, don’t be surprised if your server shows up with a small digestif of apple brandy.
