Family owned since 1975, Gourmet Haus Staudt is a little piece of Germany located in downtown Redwood City. Originally established as a flower shop by Joe and Lucie Staudt, it has grown into a classic Bavarian Bierstube, market and bottle shop. Our approach has always been providing an authentic German experience through hearty food, beer and community. It has become a spot to relax and share stories in an atmosphere that encourages a conversation. At any given time you might find Gourmet Haus Staudt a bustling biergarten or a quiet Bavarian paradise.
