It’s no surprise that a city founded by Germans has plenty of authentic, delicious German restaurants to choose from. At Jagerhaus, you’ll find goulash, strudel, bratwurst and other German treasures all in an intimate, cozy environment. Start with the traditional fondue, and don’t forget to save room for an extra pint or two of imported beer—or one of the delectable apple crisp desserts.
At The Phoenix Club, you can enjoy special celebrations year-round including an incredible Oktoberfest if you frequently visit the area. The lively pub and dance hall is available for private rentals, and is popular during the holiday season for Christmas parties. Bavarian cuisine is scratch-made and always impressive.

Old World German Restaurant is aptly named and known for classic dishes, out of this world schnitzel and a variety of pastries. You’ll also find the biggest collection of imported German beer here, making it a favorite for special gatherings and happy hour. Head to Mattern Sausage and Meats for something a little more low-key, with a deli counter-service operation. The staff is happy to whip up a meal to-go or to take to your guest room.
Stadtgarden is known for quick pub bites and live music on the weekend. It boasts more of a party atmosphere, and has the best treats to end a night of imbibing. No matter which German destination you choose, there’s a good chance the owners and staff are descendants of the founders of Anaheim!
