As always, visiting the Student Prince is a unique and pleasurable experience. Great German and American beers on tap, fun things to eat like the giant warm pretzel, brats, kraut, schnitzel and other German favorites. Good thing for me that the Student Prince is not closer, or I would be spending the coming winter happily adding a few inches to my waistline!

Sat outside for lunch and it was a cute fall set up.
Not just a tent in a parking lot. Great food selection including for vegetarians. Not always the case for German fare.

Lunch outdoors was fun & festive—decor was set up for Oktoberfest and was super cute! Would like to come back at
night, as they have a music stage.
Entire street is blocked off, and we sat at a long table in the corner of a covered fenced in area.
🥗
Great attentive service once seated. Staff was super friendly.
Food was good, and just right portions (Apple salad for moi, Bacon wrapped scallops for my date). I would love to see additional veg/GF options in the future.
📌
C19: All staff wore masks. Table parties were seated every other, until more people came in. Only thought was although we were outside, it felt a bit close to the next table once another party was seated...maybe a few more feet apart and I would have taken mask off. I just kept mask on so all good.

Fantastic brunch, ate outside, nice ambience, lots of Fall plantings, bees were a nuisance although they did have traps for them. Server was great, kept refilling the mimosas. Best omelet I ever had! Also blonde brownie was amazing!

We enjoyed eating outside with plenty of social distancing; our server wore and mask and gloves and was extremely good at her job. Food was delicious--I love the spaetzle and chicken schnitzel, my husband had a lovely pork shank. Many varieties of European beer on tap, and good value wines.

We wanted a special lunch and found student prince on open table. We got German food and seafood and had amazing dark draft beers.

The other fun thing was photographing the antique buses parked nearby that we got to look at and walk into.

The staff was helpful and attentive during the meal. Would recommend.

Our waitress was no attentive and seemed bothered by our requests. My entree (salmon) was undercooked and had to be sent back. When it came back, it still was not cooked well. The table next to the sewer grater made for an constant unpleasant smell.

Outdoor dining has been mastered by creating a festive atmosphere under a tent. Live music was nice and not overpowering. The food was A1 as usual. Always a great place to dine... inside or out.

This was a return visit to The Student Prince Café. The brussels sprouts with honey a paprika were divine. My husband's fish and my garlic shrimp were superb. We opted for outdoor dining since the night was comfortable. They had live entertainment, which we could have done without, but it was nice to get out and enjoy great food and excellent service.

My husband and I traveled an hour to get to Student Prince and it was worth every mile and then some. The food was fantastic. Other than my grandmother's sauerkraut,there was the best I've ever had. I should mention that my grandmother made amazing German food. The service was wonderful. Our waitress,Jordan,was extremely patient and helpful as I couldn't decide on a drink and my husband just recently was diagnosed with gluten sensitivity. She was amazingly helpful and reassuring. By the way, he had the Wirst plate with French fries and applesauce and was fine. The prices were fantastic given the quality and food and service. The environment was also wonderful. The decor definitely had a Germanic influence which I love. We will definitely be back soon!

Had a wonderful night. Went for my birthday. Everything was wonderful. I was surprised that there was a spot on the reservation that asked if it was a special occasion and we put birthday but no one acknowledged it. Wondered why they bothered to ask.
