City Pages' Description

Glockenspiel is St. Paul"s counterpart to the Black Forest Inn, a family-owned restaurant serving traditional German favorites like schnitzel stroganoff, sauerbraten, and wursts. As delightful as a cuckoo clock, this restaurant is filled with tchotchkes-nutcrackers, hand-painted plates and ceiling tins, beer steins, and beer barrels that create a homey atmosphere. You can also drink beer out of a giant glass boot, charmingly called "das boot," so how can you go wrong? The atmosphere is joyful and boisterous, especially on weekends, when you might be serenaded by a lederhosen-clad accordionist, tuba player, or yodeler.

    This was they very first German restaurant I was taken to when I moved to the Twin Cities. It is quite good. The food is superb, and the service is quick. Their beer selection is pretty good, and the schnitzels and wursts are top notch. My only problem with the place is that it is in St. Paul, so I don't get out to it as often as I would like.

    The food here is great but the service can be slow if you don't go on a weekend. They have a decent selection of beer at the bar. Finish your meal with a cold drink of Apfel Korn.

    Sometimes you're in the mood for a hot dog. Ever since the Lincoln Del closed, this has become my favorite place to get one (I prefer it to the Vienna Beef options next door). One downfall: no bun.

    I dare you to get Das Boot!

    Great place to go for good German lager. Go here often enough and the colorful locals will make for even better conversation. The wait and bar staff make it even better.

    Don't bring your kids during happy hour.
