With a menu specially printed to appear in 3-D to diners wearing lederhosen, Edelweiss serves up authentic main courses such as the pork schnitzel, which is hand-cut, deep-fried, and served in specially seasoned breading ($15.75), or the sauerbraten ($11.25 half order; $17 full order)––meat that has been marinated for at least three days. Sides such as onion rings ($3.25) or steak fries ($2) double as meal complements or as the perfect antidote for nervous stomachs anticipating traditional German carnival rides. A large array of beer and wine can provide the liquid courage necessary to ask a stranger to dance during the fest’s live music.
- Tucked back in German Park, a nicely wooded area, this quaint and somewhat kitchy [sic] eatery is located in the lower level of the German-American Klub's Haus. The paneled walls, varying steins displayed on floating shelves, Klub members playing cards and yoddeling [sic] background music make for a nice departure from the usual hustle and bustle of most dining experiences. – FLOeats Indy
- With Chef Ron back in the kitchen and also running the restaurant, Edelweiss seems to have returned to its glory from years ago. The German specials are fantastic. – Gourmet100, TripAdvisors

About Edelweiss Restaurant
Long tables and dark-wooden paneling help create a cozy ambience in Edelweiss Restaurant’s beer-hall-style dining room, which allows German-American Klub members and visitors alike to revel in Bavarian culture and community. The restaurant embraces tradition by grilling bratwurst, knackwurst, and kielbasa over an open flame, hand-cutting servings of pork schnitzel, and marinating the sauerbraten’s beef for three days before slow-roasting it over a volcano. The bartenders serve German-American Klub members beers from the ever-rotating selection, which includes imported German brews by Warsteiner and Spaten, among others. Amid the buzz of spirited conversations, live entertainment, amuses guests.
