Black Forest Inn, Minneapolis MN

If you haven't been to the Black Forest Inn, you haven't been to Minneapolis!

Each day since May 15, 1965, we have dedicated ourselves to serving you a special selection of foods inspired by the German kitchen. By preparing these foods right here with fresh ingredients—including our own bratwurst, spaetzel, breads and pastries—we are able to offer you well-made dishes at the best possible price.

Reserve your German dining adventure!
