Right from the eye-catching facade to the interiors and food, Der Rheinlander is German through and through. The restaurant is well-known for authentic German specialties like sauerkraut and schnitzels. Choose from any one of the entrees and get sausage, chicken, pork or veal in a hearty dish. The vegetarian meals are a good bet as well. The atmosphere inside is warm with cozy booths for seating and lots of German memorabilia adorning the walls. The friendly, singing wait-staff inside is accompanied by accordion players and is a delight to watch. Offer a request or two and sing along. A selection of rooms inside offer great opportunities for groups and private events.
We tried to go to the Berlin Inn after seeing the great reviews for them on the internet and when we walked up to the door they told us they were closed forever. So, we had some friends from Portland take us to the Rhinelander and were totally impressed with the service, the atmosphere and mostly the food. Everything on the menu was authentic German cuisine and extremely good. I wouGerman food.ld recommend it to anyone in the Portland area that will be looking for great
I was not impressed. The seats were hard to sit on, especially hard to get in and out of if you are a plus size person. I have arthritis in my knees and it was very hard to sit in the booth. i had a cheeseburger, fries, and a side of german potato salad. None of which were any good.
My husband and I took family that was visiting from San Francisco to eat at Rheinlander's on Thanksgiving. Our service was impeccable and our food was fantastic. I don't know how authentic it is compared to eating in Germany, but we thought the sauerkraut and meats were yummy, as well as the fondue and soups. Although we opted for the German-American Thanksgiving dinner and got soup, salad, turkey, mashed potatoes, and other American classics, we had a taste of German cuisine and definitely sampled a variety of bier - The staff was fun and friendly, playing the accordion and getting everyone in our dining area to sing along. We would highly recommend this place.
Can't believe the last comment...my boyfriend and I dine here regularly. We love to stop in and have an appetizer and pint of beir. Always love the servers, food is excellent, attentive service from a solid crew ! Thanks and looking forward to more fondue and sausage !

This place has great ambience for a festive time that feels like a German Hofbrau. It's a great place to bring out of towners and for big family get togethers. The food is very good as well as the beer and wine.
