A German decor adds to the ambience at the city's favorite German and Continental restaurant. Favorites include schnitzels, sauerbraten, lamb shank, and roast goose. Steaks and vegetarian entrees available. Piano entertainment Fridays and Saturdays; special early dining menu offered Mon-Fri. - Alotta, 03/09/2007

Many romantic nights at Karl's place back in 1974-75. Great food, especially the salad with hot bacon dressing. I, too remember the trio of violinists, particularly
the older lady. Anyway, I haven't escaped Texas and haven't been back up that way since early 1975. Glad to hear it's still there. Maybe some day.....until then, enjoy the great food and atmosphere folks. - Chris Christiansen, 06/03/2002
Hey! I took Jack Williams advise. Karl Ratzsch is the best! Thanks! I loved the food. I miss John Ernst and wish the place would come back. But Karl Ratzsch that God is still here. This place allows you to live out your roots!! Wunderbar!!! - Max Lerner, 02/26/2002
Karl Ratzsch Restaurant takes you back to a time when Milwaukee was almost completely like a German City. I can just imagine the old BierMeisters sitting around and enjoying some of the best German food in the Mid-West. It's amazing that according to the U.S. Census Bureau 60 million Americans claim German Ancestry making Germans the largest ethnic group in America. You would think that their would be more places like Karl Ratzsch's Restaurant to cater to this enormus population, but their isn't. That's why I recommend that every one in the Milwaukee Area take advantage of having this
amazing German Restaurant near by and go and enjoy yourself as much as possible. Ein Prosit!!! - Jack Williams, Pennsylvania, 12/04/2001

My wife and I went to Karl Ratzsch's on our honeymoon in 1972 and have been back there several times since. The most wonderful thing about this restaurant besides the first class food and service, is the fact that neither of these things has changed in the thirty years we have been going there. The one thing I miss though is the stringed trio that used to make the diners feel as though they were playing especially for them. - chuck mcintyre, 04/25/2001
I went to Germany a few years ago and had the idea that NOW I would finally find German food that compares to Karl Ratzsches. Wow! Was I dissolutioned! I have come to the conclusion that there is no finer German food to be found anywhere! I was raised on German style
food and although I don't live in Wisconsin, but I have made it a point to somehow get to Milwaukee and have dinner at Karl Ratzsches at least once a year for the last 18 years! I am often disappointed when I try other German restaurants, but not once have I been disappointed there! - David Bruchel, 04/13/1999
