Der Rheinlander German-Themed Restaurant

This awesome location has been sold and torn down.

Tears of sorrow have ruined our best lederhosen.

Rheinlander dining.

Der Rheinlander German-Themed Restaurant

Der Rheinlander is a longstanding Portland tradition since 1963. The restaurant looks like a German village inside and out. Above the dining area are mini-houses, clocks and other scenery. Waiters sing and dance, dressed in Bavarian garb, while accordion players seranade you with the Beer Barrel Polka or Adelwiess. Food is excellent but pricey.

Gustav's is a German pub, also located in the building, but not nearly as fun. Sandy Blvd. is a main road with lots of vintage stores and interesting places to visit.
