Beyond the traditional Fachwerkhäuser (German timber framing) architecture, what makes the Waldhorn Restaurant so authentic are the co-owners and long-time professional chefs Thomas (from Long Island) and Gitta (actually from Germany) Maier. Instead of taking over Gitta’s parents’ Waldhorn Restaurant in Germany, they wanted to bring their German heritage to Charlotte … by the way it’s pronounced “vald-horn.” In this cozy, exposed-beamed, honest to goodness beer hall, they serve the best of the best traditional German bier and unpronounceable dishes like Hausgemachte Maultaschen (German ravioli with meat, spinach, and beef broth) and Schwäbische Wurstplatte (bratwurst served with sauerkraut and home fries). Did we mention they have a beer club? Prost!
