My husband and I had been trying to find an genuine German restaurant once we found Ketzler’s Schnitzel Haus & Biergarten in Granbury. As soon as eating restrictions had been considerably eased, we had lunch there final March. We actually preferred the meals and the service. That’s, as soon as we had been capable of finding a desk, as a result of there have been extra prospects than there have been tables on the in style restaurant.
Ketzler’s pleasant supervisor informed us they had been getting ready to maneuver later that month right into a a lot bigger area “resulting from buyer demand.” He stated the restaurant had been situated on Granbury’s historic sq. for seven years, however that they had outgrown the area.
Ketzler’s Heat Atmosphere
Just a few weeks in the past we had been in a position to return to Granbury, to see how the brand new Ketzler’s was doing. The brand new area, at 201 E. Pearl Road simply off the sq., is charmingly embellished, with a snug atmosphere that made us really feel welcome without delay. And the service lived as much as the atmosphere. We had been comfortable to search out ourselves seated instantly in one of many 30 tables within the giant eating corridor. Ketzler’s nonetheless presents scrumptious and genuine German meals, however this time we had been in a position to get pleasure from an extended, leisurely lunch with out worrying concerning the prospects ready for our desk.
The brand new Ketzler’s additionally options a big efficiency stage, and even has a dance ground, with weekend musical live shows Friday-Sunday. There’s seating for over 100 folks now, plus an outside patio biergarten.
Homeowners Angelika and Nathan Wright dealt with a lot of the restoration themselves, and he even designed and constructed the attractive, 30-foot-long centerpiece bar. A German native, Angelika has been concerned within the hospitality trade since she was 16. The restaurant serves a lot of her household recipes, and Angelika says it’s simpler to cook dinner genuine German meals in a German atmosphere. Not having visited Germany, I can solely say it’s as genuine as any German restaurant we’re more likely to see in North Texas.
Ketzler’s Genuine German Meals
The meals will not be solely genuine, but in addition scrumptious. For our current lunch we began with big pretzel appetizers served with German mustard and cheese. My husband ordered the Schweine Schnitzel plate (grilled pork with grilled onion sauce) with crimson cabbage and potato salad ($19), and I ordered the Bratwurst sampler (half order-$16) with sauerkraut and German potato salad.
I loved attempting 5 styles of Bratwurst (Nurnberger, conventional Grobe, smoked Kolbasse, Weisswurst, and spicy hen). The spicy hen (apples, tomatoes, jalapeno, and cheese) was my favourite however they had been all good—particularly with Ketzler’s German mustard and darkish bread. My draft beer, the St. Arnold Pilsner, was good with the meal.
