Restaurant Review of Gasthaus Edelweiss in Weber City, Virginia
Hidden in a small home in Weber City, Virginia is an excellent, authentic German restaurant. Those are hard to come by in the mountain region where we live! We discovered it sort of by accident, and we are so glad we did!
The owners are husband and wife Edwin and Ingrid Carter, who met in Berlin during the Korean war. Edwin was a young American soldier from Virginia and Ingrid was a cute young German girl. They met, fell in love, and eventually moved back here to the states. You can read the full story here.
Later in life, the couple built an addition to their home in Weber City to make a restaurant. Seating is limited, so reservations are a good idea, and Gasthaus Edelweiss is only open Thursday through Saturday evenings. If you are interested in visiting, you can give them a call at 276-386-3724.
When we visited, they were already decorated for Christmas! First, we were served a hard, crusty bread preferred by the Germans with butter.
Herb ordered Wienerschnitzel with homefries.
I got Sauerbraten, which is tender marinated beef that was served with potato dumplings and red cabbage.
Both of us were extremely satisfied with the entire experience, from the ambiance, to the people, to the food. If you want delicious German food served in a friendly, home-like atmosphere, do yourself a favor and make a reservation!
