Midwest Living Review
Bring a huge appetite for a delicious meal at Beethoven's No. 9 Restaurant. Customers have been known to drive half an hour to this country-cozy dining destination where two classically trained chefs turn out such delicacies as Zigeuner Schnitzel ($15.49), an enormous, moist breaded and pan-fried pork loin topped with sauted onions and peppers in an addictive buttery-tasting and complex red wine sauce. Weisswurst with curry sauce ($10.99) features white Bavarian-style sausage made from veal and pork with a sweet-savory red curry sauce on the side.
With many entrees, diners can choose two sides, such as creamy and sweet coleslaw or hot potato salad with plenty of vinegar. Sweet and sour cooked red cabbage is another option. Not in the mood for German food? Order a filet or shrimp scampi, or custom-create a burger with multiple topping choices, including various cheeses. No matter what dish you start with, save room for one of the amazing desserts, which are made fresh daily. You may find a rich and decadent rum ball ($3.99) doused in chocolate sprinkles, which tastes like rum-soaked molten dark chocolate cake, or berry cake ($3.99) with a soft crust and several varieties of fresh berries. You'll be planning your next visit before finishing your first.
