Black Forest Inn Restaurant Review:

This homage to Bavaria is a classic: even native son Prince used to frequent Minneapolis' official schnitzel headquarters. The Black Forest Inn serves up straightforward German cuisine in a setting that doesn't hold back on old-world charm. The beer garden draws young and old during the summer, meaning there is always a wait and waiting is always worthwhile. We're usually too enthralled by the exhaustive beer list to pay much attention to the menu, but then again it's meant to comfort rather than surprise. The kasseler rippchen is a favorite, a thick smoked pork chop served with potato salad and sauerkraut. However, you should also top off your order with a side of red cabbage. Regulars also swear by the wiener schnitzel, sauerbraten and paprika schnitzel; meanwhile, the Hungarian goulash offers a hearty, comforting alternative. One thing’s crucial: don't forget to have a slice of apple strudel or Sacher torte for dessert.
