Beethoven’s #9

Presents the Finest German Food in the Midwest…No Kidding.

We are now open at our NEW location 2 W. Piankishaw St. with NEW hours open Thursday - Sunday.

Out here in Paola Kansas lies your new favorite restaurant. Discover us. We’ll make you feel like family…and you’ll want to come home again and again. You can’t eat like this anywhere else! Ours is the best authentic German food in the region, made fresh from scratch every day. A trained chef (Chef Linzi) expertly prepares our family recipes passed down…and Mom oversees the desserts. Each bite tastes better than the last!

Get ready for the most delicious Jaeger Schnitzel you’ll ever eat, thanks to our creamy mushroom sauce. There’s Homemade Spaetzel. Sweet Red Cabbage. Savory Potato Salad. The best yeast rolls in the world. We serve huge Reuben Sandwiches. Handcrafted Sausages. Fresh Pretzels. Hearty Beef Stroganoff. Then have some Warm Apple Dumplings, Grandpa’s German Chocolate Cake, Bourbon Bread Pudding, Crazy Good Carrot Cake. (The dessert menu changes daily. Call ahead and ask what’s available that day. If there’s time, Mom will try to make your favorite!)

To top it off, Mom also makes an incredible lasagna that will leave you speechless…which singlehandedly makes this more than a German restaurant. It is that good.

Hungry yet? Put all of this alongside an impressive German beer and wine list. You’ll be pushing maximum density as you leave if you do things right.

We love to treat you like family.

Beethoven’s #9 is an experience. It’s not just the food. It’s our service beyond belief, our truly family environment, our shareable portions, the conversational, easy drive.

With wineries and antique shops all around the historic town square, Beethoven’s #9 is part of a collection of good things worth leaving the city to find.

We invite you home to our table. Come! We’re only 20 minutes west of Olathe, Kansas—a great escape for the best German food (and lasagna!) in the Midwest.
