With sepia-tone murals of merrymaking, this Apfelwein classic succeeds in being touristy and traditional all at once, and it's a genuine favorite of local residents. The kitchen produces the same hearty German dishes as other apple-cider taverns, only better. Try the schnitzel or the Tafelspitz mit Frankfurter Grüner Sosse (stewed beef with a sauce of green herbs), or come on Friday for fresh fish. Cider is served in large quantity in the noisy, crowded dining room. Warning: it serves no beer!

This is the last restaurant in Frankfurt I would ever recommend. The service here is rude and appalling and frankly, the food doesn't make up for it. There are so many other German style restaurants in Frankfurt to choose from, that there is no reason to go to this one. I have been to Wagners on a number of occasions, and was never impressed, but the last visit sealed the deal. I will never dine here again.
