I can say this is our favorite restaurant in Kitchener/Waterloo area. Loved their Pork Hock. It's always perfectly done. Crispy on the outside, very juicy on the insider. When you eat with their own sauerkraut, it'll give and nice balance to the taste and take away the greasiness of the pork hock.

I'm never a schnitzels person, but I would eat the ones here. Again they are crispy on the... more

Craving schnitzel so we came here for dinner, group of 3. Also very coincidentally came on Thurs night chef night, 2 schnitzel for $19. Pretty sweet deal. We also got a Bavarian weisswurst dinner. All were delicious though the schnitzel was missing the cranberry sauce that I'd get back in Munich and Salzburg when I visited earlier this year. It tasted a bit dry without it, but nonetheless my... more

Concordia Club definitely worth the drive if you are looking for authentic German food in the area.

Everything here is house made including their dessert. Dessert is just so good.

We shared:

Goulash Soup ($6.75)

Concordia Platter ($18.50) smoked pork chop, small Schnitzel, German bratwurst, dumpling and fine German sauerkraut

Rote Grutze ($6.25) red berries cooked with rum, & served with... more

Friday night buffet, not as good as the first time

We went for the Friday evening buffet again, as we had a big craving for schnitzel and sauerkraut. We enjoyed this meal the first time we came here, many months ago. This time, the schnitzel and kraut were ok. Not good, just ok. The also had pork chops and turkey sausage, which we did not like. Too dry and no... more

While in Kitchener, had a craving for good wholesome German food. Found it at The Schenke restaurant (part of the Concordia Club of Kitchener).

Ordered their red cabbage as a side to share with... more

Finally I found the greatest place outside of Germany
January 27, 2014

It's been one of my plans to visit the Concordia Club for several years. Finally I have done so today and now I regret having missed any previous opportunities. The food was simply unbelievable!! Being a German food lover, I had to try several dishes and everything was outstanding!! The most memorable dining experience outside if Germany!!

Finally went to The Schenke after meaning to try it for a couple of years! Atmosphere and decor were great - food was very tasty, good value.

Great mix of comfort Germanstrudelporkhocken and bier on tap. The servings are generous and served by friendly staff in traditional Bavarian attire. We would go again to try the other menu items.

If I was from Bavaria, I'd would feel comfortable in my lederhosen ... Bier in hand

I often overlook the Concordia Club for lunch and/or dinner because I usually think of this place as the home of Oktoberfest. It is that but it's also a lot more than just Oktoberfest.

My friends and I came here for Sunday brunch/lunch and found out that they have a buffet for brunch. The food selection was good. The service was friendly.
