The 15 Best Places for German Food in Indianapolis

Sarah: Get the hot wurst platte to share! It is a TON of food, so you might not even need an entrée. The mustard is super spicy but tasty! The jaegerschnitzel is delicious as well.

Chris Smith: The schnitzel cordon bleu, jaegerschnitzel & regular schnitzel are really great, just different arrangements of toppings/sauces. Very spicy mustard. Bread & pretzels are suberb. Doppelbock to drink!

Patrice Jimerson: The haute wurst plate, Mager Cider, and Rathskeller Amber were all wonderful!!! Beware of spicy mustard — is delicious but hot!!! The tables in the back of the restaurant are lovely!!

Christina Hunt-Schubnell: The Wednesday buffet is great. Try the bread pudding 😉

D W: Hey this weekend is Octoberfest, Edelweiss is still open, with a limited menu. You can also get wurst and the petzel’s in the park during the fest!

Downtown Indy: The Rathskeller’s unique architecture and decor offers the authentic German beer hall experience year round. On summer nights, hundreds of visitors flock outside for live entertainment.

Nicholas Hieston: Enjoy a cool fall evening at the beer garden with a tall spaten oktoberfest and some live music. You will be glad you did 🙂

Chris Smith: Every dog is great, but the NY dog & BBQ dog are my favorites. Get the combo w/ tator tots and enjoy. The staff is consistently great with service, and very happy to see return customers. Read more.

Kevin: Get the tots – and don’t be shy of the sauerkraut on the Reuben dog… It’s just the right spice for the dog.

Kevin Hendricks: order up the Cuban! You will fo sho leave with a happy belly!

Casey Wiscons: Delicious. Hidden gem. Great prices, service and bright clean space. Why did it take me so long to visit. Will be back again for sure.

Wanda S: Just off the Monon trail by Bikeline. Owner-Master bakers (Alice and Janine) trained in Germany. Each Sunday they put out a new selection of pasteries and tortes…good with a ‘Dirty Hippie’ chai.

Jason Kelm: They started offering a pretzel sandwich. Wonderful pretzel taste, warm sauerkraut with local sausage. It was over too soon. Also try the cake. Can’t go wrong.

Terrian: I love this place! The servers are always fun and the food is always fantastic. It’s becoming one of my favorite places in Broad Ripple. The view on the patio is nice along the canal.

Eric Thomas: There’s a reason it’s often busy for lunch here… IT’S DELICIOUS! Try calling in an order to pick-up and stroll over to the American Legion Mall to enjoy some great food in a beautiful setting.

Chris Frick: The Turkey Island is great; like a rueben but dose instead of kraut

Christy Merriman: Taco salad is great! And their daily specials too

Leslie C: Ask for Miss Leslie for the best service of your life!

Johnny Wright: Best neighborhood bar around. Excellent food, excellent people. A bit smoky. The Thursday steak special is FTW

Tyler McCord: This place is insanely cool! It appears to be built in an old open factory. They have classic cars everywhere! And the food is exactly what you would expect from a “mom and pop” styled diner.

Mike Boland: Great omelets any way you like them and huge. Good job.

Dana Parker: Really good Cajun Mac and Cheese! Lots of beers and good atmosphere
