Fodor's Review

Find a true time-tinged feel of an old Salzburg Gasthaus, right down to a huge ceramic stove next to wooden chairs that welcomed generations of locals as they tucked into enormous plates of Bauernschmaus (Farmer's Feast): roast pork, ham, sausage, sauerkraut and a massive dumpling. Pair it with a frothy-headed mug of the hometown "liquid bread"—Stiegl beer—from the oldest private brewery in Austria. The "Wild Man's" namesake fountain statue originally stood at the top of the Griesgasse, and can now be found in the small grassy park across from the Festival Hall—his cheeky portrait still welcomes guests at the restaurant's entryway. When this inn opened its doors in 1884 it became one of the most important burgher houses in the Altstadt, and it continues to be a popular choice for the Lederhosen crowd.
